68 rooms - we call them Cosy, Original, Creative and Meandering. Each one is unique.
We also manage apartments in the Nishi building. While our rooms are a cacophony of textures, the apartments are a blank space. The walls are white, the shelves have space for you to bring your own bits and bobs and make you feel at home.
And we manage split-level lofts just across the road and down the lane from us in the NewActon precinct.

A live screening and performance of ‘Brutti ma Buoni’ in the Nishi Gallery.
‘Brutti ma Buoni’ is a commissioned work by Hotel Hotel which seeks to build knowledge and appreciation of Brutalist architecture in Canberra.
The work consists of two parts – a short film of Brutalist buildings, co-directed by Coco & Maximilian and U-P; and an accompanying live score by Speak Percussion that interprets them aurally. Together they observe and orchestrally arrange Brutalism.
Brutalist buildings are polarising beasts. Over here, we love them dearly. Some see them as oppressive and unliveable. We wanted to try and understand them in a different way – just through our eyes and ears.
Canberra’s reception of “Brutti ma Buoni’ was immense. We wanted to give everyone a big kiss on the mouth for coming out in the cold and for being a beautiful and thoughtful crowd. After the screening Tilman played modern minimalist records. We drank Monster cocktails and wine and talked about the need to protect and preserve our big Canberra brutes.
‘Brutti ma Buoni’ comprises of two works. A short film of Brutalist buildings by U-P and Coco & Maximilian and an accompanying sound piece by Speak Percussion. Together they work to observe and orchestrally arrange Brutalism. What can we see when we really look at these monolithic structures in detail? What do their rough textures, shadows and unadorned geometries reveal? What might these beasts sound like? Cavernous and vast? Drone-like? Repetitive? Hypnotic? Oppressive, optimistic or sublime?
