“Central location but room servicing was sub-standard”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Good: central location, close to buses and malls; clean bed sheets; good buffet breakfast; staff were friendly and reasonably helpful. Staff booked taxi for us on checkout. Had a quad room, which are hard to find elsewhere. Nice hot water in shower.

Poor: room was not well serviced - beds were made daily but floors never swept or vacuumed, towels not changed daily. A lack of toiletries and tea/coffee were provided. Had a quad room but upon checking in had towels/cups/toiletries for 2-3 people only (staff brought these promptly when notified). Outdated furniture, but functional. Towels had a strange smell.

I was looking at Kings Perth to be our regular hotel for staff when they came to visit our head office in Perth. We put one staff member here and the photos she took and showed us made me gag. The dirt and scum in the bathroom was abominable! This room had clearly NEVER been cleaned and you certainly wouldn't put your worst enemy in here. We will definately never place any of our staff here and recommend updating your website to reflect the dump that this place really is!

Great location and the staff at the desk were excellent, especially the indoneian lady who takes great pride in customer service. Slightly on the higer side in pricing. Great and clean rooms!

Good comfy bed with clean sheets and clean bathroom. Great location! Yeah, this place is a bit out-dated and needs a revamp but you get what you pay for in my opinion.
Insist a full buffet breakfast is included at no extra charge!!

This hotel is in a great location which could explain why it is so overpriced for the type of accommodation you get. The room we stayed in was not overly clean with mould on the windows and the curtain (which I could not draw due to the curtain being stuck) A brown stain on the carpet near the fridge and a half eaten candy bar melted next to the phone. Generally I have no issues with older hotels and understand that it takes time to complete renovations etc. As long as the rooms are clean and everything works it is not an issue. What is important though is that if the rooms are on the wrong side of the 80's that the hotel charges appropriately. With current rates on wotif.com and expedia the rate per night seems a little excessive. We have stayed with the Kings before and found the room rate comparable AND the room clean. Hopefully this was just a one off occasion. The restaurant was great....good service and good food (this is consistant every time we go!) The service was good, check in was easy and staff accommodating.

My wife and I stayed at the Kings Hotel for 10 nights in November and enjoyed it immensely. The location is superb and the accommodation, whilst a little "tired", was spacious and clean. We noticed that some of the bedrooms were being refurbished during our stay which, when completed, should address some of the adverse comments on this site. The breakfast's were excellent with a wide variety of choice of both healthy and not so healthy options. We ate dinner in the hotel on a couple of occasions and again no complaints. Above all though the staff and management worked extremely hard to ensure our stay was a memorable one.

Room Tip: Balcony facing the river is preferable.
