The most popular Vietnamese restaurant in Canberra is only a 1 km walk away in Griffith and the Food Markets are close by too. I stayed in the Larger Studio for 1 night on a work visit to Canberra, and was not disappointed. The complex itself is dated, but there is a pool & ample parking. The accommodation itself is compact, but tastefully decorated, and has all the amenities you could require, particularly if you are self-catering for some or all of your visit. The kitchenette is well appointed with a variety of culinary equipment, and there is a spare single bed for use by a child, friend or simply to lay out the contents of your suitcase. The day of my visit was over 30C. The air conditioning worked well, but I ended up leaving the balcony door open all night, and found the complex was peaceful enough & the breeze sufficient to make for a comfortable sleep. The mattress was ‘just right’ like in the Goldilocks story.
