“Good location”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Great location near the Kingston shops. The staff were lovely & v helpful but the apartments were a bit disappointing. Our bedroom & balcony were on the road side of the building which was a little noisy. It meant that the main room was a but dark which was a pity. The bathroom is through the mirrored wardroom which is a strange set up & difficult in the middle of the night - my husband stubbed his toe on the wardrobe rail. We were told that the first 30 mins of wifi each day are free but ours stopped after 5 mins even though we downloaded almost nothing & wouldnt work again. the next day we discovered that it isnt every day as we had been told but every 24hrs & the fact that reception couldnt get us in even though we hadnt had our 30mins! While the lady at reception helped us out with the small email I needed to send it was a real hassle. Really wifi should be free at a place like this in this day & age & not charged at an exorbitant rate!

Spent one night here in feb 2014 as part of a last minute trip to canberra. Hotel was resonably priced and the room was very spacious. Stayed in a 2 bedroom ground floor apartment at the back of the block, the room was clean however the mini bar had no supplies except milk, which was fine give the shortness of our stay, but would imaging having to source items from the local IGA might be slightly annoying for those arriving at night.

Location in caberra was relativley good, with a pub, bar and shopping centre not far. Parks and the lake were also less than ten minutes walk. Bus was a 300m stroll up the street which would take you into the centre of town, or a taxi which cost $17 is also a good choice.

Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the property will avoid the noise from the road.

Having to go to an event in the ACT in August, I had to find accommodation for 4 adults and 1 child. This also had to be affordable for the other couple- I found this apartment style accommodation and it was perfect for many reasons. Two bedrooms, kitchen, dining area , lounge and laundry at a very affordable rate. Very close to the local shops and Kingston Markets. City centre only 10 minutes drive away and close enough to all the places we needed to go.Would not hesitate to stay here again, staff exceptionally helpful and informative.

Room Tip: We had a room on the main street but there was no issue with noise for us.

A Victorian building in Canberra - but built in 1992 when it won a tourism industry award for its architecture. Today the outside and its park still look well kept while indoors our bathroom showed some need for refurbishment. The kitchen was the only one during our several week round trip in Australia that was not spotlessly clean. Neither was the bathroom.
The receptionist however was extremely helpful with an onward booking to another Medina.

Medina Apartments are in a great location, close to shops and attractions. They are nice and clean. We received great service with no problems, having only booked the day before via wotif. The 2 bedroom apartment had enough room for a family of 4 with lots of natural light. The complex has nice central gardens, a lift and an undercover carpark (which can be tight with a large vehicle) The only complaint from my older children was that the wifi was prohibitively expensive (too bad - so they found other things to do!) Overall we had a great stay and will be back.

Reviewed 27 December 2013

I was really unsure when booking accommodation in Canberra having never been there before and not knowing the distance to different locations. A friend suggested Medina as she had stayed here before when on business in Canberra.

I had originally booked a 3 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment (which is not advertised on their website) but a week before we arrived I received a phone call asking if it would be alright if we were placed in 2 2 bedroom apartments with a interconnecting door (upgraded). This meant that we would then have 2 bathrooms and with 6 people this was not a problem at all especially as we weren't charged any extra! We were on the top floor and found the apartments to be spacious, clean and well equipped. We had a King bed in both the main bedrooms and 2 singles in the other 2 rooms. There were washers and dryers in both bathrooms. We had no problems with using the oven (which seemed quite new) but didn't use the stove at all. House keeping short-changed us a couple of towels both days they were replaced but a call to reception and some were brought to us. We also had a problem with the sliding shower screen door but it was easily fixed. We were unable to use the pool as it was closed for some renovations. The apartments were close to everything we wanted to see. We could even see parliament house from our balcony. As someone else mentioned there is a lift to all floors but as you walk along the veranda you do need to go down a couple of stairs. We enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: Always ask about larger/interconnecting rooms - they are not always advertised on websites.

The Medina Apartments are located within walking distance to Kingston and Manuka. They have 2 bedrooms and a large bathroom that includes a Washing Machine. They have lifts to all floors and free undercover car parking. Recommended to families visiting Canberra or business guys. They are well priced for the area.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a view of Manuka oval. Get a room close to the lift if you have a lot of luggage.
