Best for: Political eavesdroppers
Barely 15 minutes’ walk to the door of Parliament House, Hotel Realm is classic and comfortable. Inside, you’ll find everything you need to get yourself ready for a visit to the halls of influence – coffee pods, plenty of hanging space and free Wi-Fi. Stay in a suite, penthouse or two-bedroom residence and you’ll also get a spa bath to warm up in after a long day. Realm is one of the rare Canberra properties to offer 24-hour room service, as well as playing host to onsite bistro and wine bar Buvette, and Canberra dining institution Chairman and Yip.
