There's a free city bus which stops in front of the hotel. Location is great, the mall is within 5 minutes walk. There's also halal restaurant and subway just next to the hotel. The room is okay and hotel provide free baby cot

One of the good points for this hotel is the location and the price. The cheapest hotel i found for the central area. The next cheaper option would be a hostel. yes it is a bit old building but im not really a fussy traveler so as long as the location is good and its clean im already happy. some... More

Criterion hotel is located in the middle of Perth's CBD so it means a short walk to the Perth Station. Free city buses run till 6ish in the evening and a bus stop is just across the street from the hotel. The hotel is just next to the IGA supermarket so if you want to grab snacks and alcohol, that...

Decided to stay here despite the mixed reviews and use it as a budget place to stay at the start and end of a WA tour.. A very threadbare carpet led up to my first room which was pretty small and uninspiring....second time around I paid less and got a bigger room, which was more comfortable, but equally uninspiring.....like the...

Apart from the very polite and helpful lady at the front desk not much good about this place. No room service, room was dull and boring and in need of repairs, pillows were as thin as bed sheets. Personally I wouldn't recommend staying here sorry.

I wouldn't suggest it to anyone unless you're extremely desperate and want to catch STD's. It smelled awful, looked run down and the view was a brick wall. This is not a hotel more of a motel. If you have a car then you're definitely going to pay way too much for parking or not going to find any at... More

The Criterion Hotel was chosen on the basis I required a clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced hotel in the city for a night. I arrived into Perth on an evening flight and departed the city early the next morning. The check-in process was quick and effortless. I was also given a welcome drink voucher and discount to the restaurant. The... More

We called in for dinner after seeing the Giants in Perth. All the restaurants were packed and we saw this hotel had a few seats. It was a really old hotel upstairs and this is where you had to go to use the bathroom. Apart from that we had a nice meal which wasn't overpriced. Other people did complain about... More
