Anything designed by the architects behind Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art is bound to be one quirky ride, and aptly named Hotel Hotel Canberra is single-handedly bringing cool to the capital.

Spanning three levels of a Japanese-inspired new residential complex known as the Nishi building, the hotel’s 7-star eco rating is impressive, and hints at its sustainable conscience throughout. The lobby is a veritable mash-up of raw and sleek with wallpaper made from natural fibres and walls that are clay-rendered. The strangely intriguing interiors (bogong moth chandeliers, anyone?) curated by filmmaker Don Cameron bring a modern hippiness to each of the 68 rooms and 33 hotel apartments in the Hotel Hotel Canberra.

Luckily for the claustrophobic among us, most rooms have fantastic views across Lake Burley Griffin. And while we’re on the topic of the rooms…BYO crayons – being surrounded by reclaimed wood, muted tones and shaggy-rugs really makes you want to get creative!
