We stayed in a Premium 2 bedroom apartment here for a week in Dec 2012. The apartment came with 2 bedrooms both with ensuite bathrooms (one with shower and one with bath/shower), living/dining area, small study table, and kitchenette.
We chose to stay here firstly due to the location which is a stone's throw away from the main shopping area of Murray St Mall/ Hay St Mall. It is also just across the road from the Perth Railway Station and within short walking distance of bus routes. Secondly, as we were traveling as a family with 3 young children, it was important to have kitchen and laundry facilities on site. The Medina filled these criteria easily.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay. Staff at the front desk were helpful, assisting to fix the room safe which was out of battery and booking our taxi to the airport on our departure. We had read about the Medina being near X-rated joints and of noisy revellers at night, but we didn't experience any disturbances during our stay.
The only complaint we would have it the Wifi which one would need to pay for, depending on hourly (AUD11 per hour) or daily AUD66/day) use. We opted to purchase a Portable Wifi device from Vodaphone which cost us only AUD79 and enabled us to surf throughout our one week stay. This saved us some money. We would suggest that the management consider providing free or cheaper Wifi as many hotels and places to stay are heading in this direction.
Housekeeping was average- we usually washed our dirty dishes but on one occasion where we left some in the sink, the staff washed it but it was a cursory wash and not thoroughly clean. This could be an area of improvement.
We would stay here again if we came to Perth again.
