The Criterion Hotel's not fancy, but the location is brilliant. On Hay St and near Barrack St, it's right in the middle of Perth CBD. There's plenty of pubs and cafes nearby, and the mall is just a short stroll away. It has its own licenced cafe/restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner (and everything in between). The rooms are small... More

I was given a huge room (206) with 2x double beds for myself for 4 nights at a great price. The Hotel staff were very helpful It is in walking distance to almost everything. It had a few faults, but for the price and location you can overlook this.

Hotel is rather old but acceptable in many ways ie. Strategic location with train station within walking distance, lots of eateries choices ie. Korean, Japanese, a Malaysian restaurant next door, and also entertainment, supermart, happening area and McD around the corner. Room is spacious and clean with all basic amenities provided. Lots of Muslims cos next door has a halal... More

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.
