3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was very basic and outdated but it is right near the CBD, and cost $89 for the night. Add the cost of a taxi each way from the airport, and it is still much cheaper than the hotels near the airport that have a free shuttle. Will stay again.

I found the person on the front counter not at all helpful when I checked in. My room was on the 2nd floor, very hot, so little cold water coming out of the tap that made it impossible to even have a shower and the room did not look as if it had had any care for at least 50... More

Unfortunately when in perth the company stays here regularly . However not anymore. They have lost a regular client due to rude staff. Nothing better than starting the day with a girl who obviously should not work in hospitality who treats customers like an ex boyfriend who cheated on her.

I love once stylish hotels that have been well maintained but are a bit run down. They are excellent value and nostalgic. Unfortunately The New Esplanade is laughably misnamed. It was last new in about 1970 and is very poorly maintained. Every surface of the hotel is damaged, dirty, soiled or dusty. In room 305 there is exposed wiring behind... More

We stayed here recently. Location was great to walk into city and to train station (and just round corner from Exchange Plaza if you are waiting on passport!!) we got room 307 which looked into car park and stairs. Thought it was overpriced for tired looking rooms with poor view. Bed was comfy, bathroom old and dated. Staff friendly. Internet... More

I had to make a quick trip to Perth for business and didn't want to spend a lot on accommodation. The New Esplande Hotel is not going to present a modern hotel however it is clean, tidy and got all the amenities you could ask for in a budget Hotel. The room was a good size and the bathroom was...

Stayed here due to a work function in the city - room was hot and stuffy with no access to temp control - thought we were going to pass out. Reception very apologetic but there was nothing they could do. Bathroom and bedroom old and need an upgrade - won't be staying again

Overall the hotel provided what you would need on the most basic levels. A bed and a bathroom. Thats about it. Shoddy wiring on the outdated entertainment nightstand seemed like a serious fire risk. Water stains in the ceiling and cigarette smell saturated in everything. No complimentary parking, WiFi, or extras of any kind. When Elizabeth Quay is realised this... More

Although the staff seem pleasant enough this hotel is in dire need of refreshment - the walls were scuffed and need painting all the furniture is tired and VERY outdated for a CBD hotel. Although it offers incredible views we couldn't see them through the filthy bay windows in our room. At every turn you felt unwelcome when a million... More
