Set in the most central of locations, Ovolo Nishi is a uniquely designed boutique hotel that has become a cultural hub for artists, designers and artisans in the heart of Canberra. Offering 68 creative and originally styled bedrooms, this stunning hotel offers unique accommodation for creative individuals who are looking for something out of the ordinary for their city stay. 

Situated over three levels of a residential building, Ovolo Nishi has been thoughtfully designed with sustainability in mind. All of the hotel’s public spaces have been crafted using natural materials, and reused and salvaged timbers. Warm fabrics and bespoke furniture commissions, local art and collected objects feature throughout the hotel, giving the atmosphere and setting a unique edge. 

Throughout the hotel you will discover a myriad of little nooks and hideaway spots where you can relax or enjoy a drink. For something more substantial, head to the hotel’s kitchen and bar area on the ground floor, where the talented in-house chefs offer a delicious seasonal menu featuring locally grown fresh produce. There are plenty of other hip cafes and high class restaurants in the precinct that cater for all tastes and diets. 

Other guest facilities include a wonderful library, a well-equipped gym and regular weekly yoga sessions that are available to all guests. For those who want to unwind and relax, the Soma Day Spa nearby offers a range of indulgent treatments using botanical products.
