Unique Sleeps: Amazing hotels hand picked by Expedia Experts. Little National Hotel, Canberra

The Little National has taken a leaf out of Dutch brand citizenM’s playbook, whose aim is to foster “affordable luxury for the people”. The result is a superbly efficient, streamlined experience that reduces overheads, allowing the Little National to focus on stylish design, excellent value and a brilliant location with zero hidden costs.

The idea that modern “mobile citizens” are interested less in superfluous frills and more in getting a great bed, excellent showers and comfortable surrounds is a reasonably new one – and the Little National is doing it better than most. As part of the adjacent Realm Precinct, guests at the Little National take advantage of all the Hotel Realm’s shared five star amenities such as health club, gymnasium, hydrotherapy spa, 25-metre indoor pool, the terrific Buvette French restaurant, Ostani Bar and more.
