I stayed for 4 days 3 nights at a double room. The room is clean and comfortable with slight smell of the carpet. Bathroom is small but clean. The staffs were friendly and attended to my request promptly. The good thing about the hotel was the location at Hay Street, only 5 minutes from the main shopping area of the... More

Location sure is the highlight for this hotel. No doubt. Central Perth, walking distance from shopping area and from the river (less than 10 min to bell tower). Place is a little old and very simple - no luxury hotel. Yet, clean and efficient and staff is friendly and helpful. Grocery store next door - plus.

This hotel is in a fabulous location. So close to the main shopping area/train/pubs and restaurants. The hotel was retro looking and pretty cool. There is nothing fancy about the hotel but it suited our purpose. I was worried reading other reviews but the room was clean and quiet. My only complaint is a hundred meters down the road is...

Great looking Art Deco building was the ONLY good thing about this hotel, oh and the sheets were clean. Stale odour and thread bare carpet at entry. Our room, 103, smelled like public toilet cleaner. Nice leadlight windows but painted shut, bathroom door rotting, towel rail almost hanging off. Vomit like stain on carpet next to bed. Oscillator on A/C... More

It is pocket friendly. it is old (historical) , but if you are not expecting too much, the restaurant is adequate for a warm meal. Location is good as you can take the free City CAT bus. two stops are near (one just opposite) The room is however not so clean (but then again we did not have any high... More

Worst hotel ever stayed in.. So dated.. Noisy aircon and a view of the outside aircon units.. No face washers no full length mirror. Had to ask for iron and board!! Should be knocked down and rebuilt.. If I hadn't paid upfront I would have walked out in disgust.. Paint peeling off the walls.. Walls filthy.. The carpet is ancient..... More

For context of this review i must first say i am very regularly accommodated in Perth CBD hotels (5+ times a month) and can firmly this say this is by far the worst hotel i have ever stayed in. I appreciate it is a historic building, but that is no excuse for absolute filth. The rooms are dirty, smelly, extremely... More

The hotel is quite old but equipped with the basic amenities and location is very good. Located in CBD is easy for me to move. It is also close to the mall just a walking distance to Hay Street Mall and eating places are just nearby. The hotel provided bag storage and the staff are good and efficient. The price... More

I've stayed in many Hotels and motels over the years, and although i have seen worst than this, at least those bad ones were not rated 4 stars. They also did not charge over $150 per night. Apart from polite service desk worker, everything else about this place is off. The building is simply too old and run down and... More

It was our first hotel in Australia for our 3 week strip. It is a quiet place, rooms have everything needed (large shower), well located in the center of the city, you can have free Wifi, and we had a bottle of wine as welcome gift.
