“Well located, clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom for 1 night. The hotel is near the sopping strip, which makes it convenient for me on my first day to get myself oriented. The room was really clean and the bed comfortable.

Likes:
- Location
- Cleanliness
- Good sized room for a single

Dislikes:
- The ladies shower and toilet has a code lock. Not convenient in times of toilet emergencies! The gents were accessible with the room's key card though.
- No lift, and the shared rooms are on the 2nd floor.

Stayed November 2012, traveled solo

I booked a night at the Royal on the end of the long weekend and to be honest only stayed here because everywhere else in Perth was booked out. BUT after a mix up with the address and position on a printed google map, and a phonecall or two, what a surprise!
The room was roomy,clean and tidy and functional. The windows opened and (despite a warning on the site I booked through that there wasn't,) there was airconditioning and heating. The bathroom was spacious and meticulously clean.
The Hotel oozes with old world charm with high ceilings and sweeping stairway, and was within walking distance of every meeting I needed to attend.
And yes I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone popping into Perth for a night or two.

Room Tip: Book a double with ensuite.

I was looking over the internet for a cheap place to stay for a night in Perth and the Royal Hotel did the trick. Although I must say that the room I ended up in was rather on a smaller side, thinking it was lucky that I didn’t bring my cat along because I wouldn’t be able to swing it in there. I asked for the cheapest deal and I got it, (shared bathroom). The room had a basin, fridge, cupboard, TV, small desk and a chair, and lastly a single bed. A typical garret with a small dormer window. No complains. But I must admit that the room and its view over a neighbouring building’s wall were reminiscent of a starving artist’s lodgings during the depression. On a brighter side, the light bouncing of the next door’s wall in the morning was filling the room rather nicely. If you are not fussy I would recommend to stay a night to experience what it was like staying in a hotel in Australia a few decades ago. Great staircase.

I wanted a cheap single room near the station; so the Royal was very convenient for an early departure. Its an very old Victorian place of some charm with creaky stairways , narrow passages and a cosy room on the top floor. It was like an English Hotel or B+B 20 or more years ago but with modern furnishings.
Being a single room I expected it to be cosy; however the long narrow room was bigger than usual, clean and attractive.
Bering in mind this budget hotel room was $70AUD it was;t bad value; however I would have preferred and en suite. I'd stayed a few nights in a tiny backpacker room in Freo for $60AUD this was far far better.
i'd not describe it as Regal as its definitely cheap and cheerful with nice helpful staff.
