“Filthy Hotel”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

I stayed for two nights for business and it has to be the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in.

There was dust everywhere in my room, and by the look of the light switches the entire hotel needs re wiring !

There was dust on the chair , on the light switches ,in the shower in fact on every surface

I pre paid for breakfast and it was a buffet style with food sitting for hours and it had no taste.

I was greeted at breakfast with " if you can find a seat just sit there".... therefore i had to clear a dirty table and then look for clean cutlery. On the second day i went across the road and had breakfast at a cafe !

At $220 a night it is absolute robbery for a filthy , down trodden hotel

After reading the reviews for kings hotel i was really worried about staying there for my husbands birthday.we are local and stay in hotels in perth for a night quite often, so we can compare hotels.we have stayed in a few top hotels in perth.we decided to look at the room before checking in.the front counter staff (agee) not sure how to spell her name :) she was very polite and was happy to show us the room.we were shown to room 406,i think this was a superior refurbished room.it was clean,the sheets were spotless,bathroom was nice and clean.and the room was nice and roomy.for a three star hotel it was fine.the bar was very friendly,nice chesterfields to chill on while having a glass of wine. breakfast was great .nice and fresh.parking for the night only cost us $12.overall it was fine.would i recommend (yes) for a three star hotel it value for money..i could not fault the staff,they were excellent.thankyou for a pleasant stay :)

Room Tip: just ask to view the room before check in

I highly do not recommend for anyone to go to this hotel, the room that i stayed in wasn't deluxe so it wasn't upgraded, the interior carpets and wardobes were all from the 70's. As soon as we stepped into the room, it had a pungent odour, horrific. I couldn't sleep for the whole night. The bathroom was in terrible condition, there were bugs and it was pretty dusty. Overall this isnt even a 3 star hotel. Very bad.

We had a couple of nights over the weekend in the city recently, and chose the Kings for its location and, lets face it, price. Perth has become so expensive these days that staying at the Hyatt or the Burswood, even the Holiday Inn is only for the seriously well-off, or mine workers. The Kings is a winner on location being close to Pier St and the Hay and Murray St Malls, and quite a few good cheap eateries nearby, too. Downstairs looks great with new carpet, nice timber panelling and buttoned leather couches, but the room we had was pretty dated, the shower had mould, although the beds were clean and comfortable. A big tick for the staff, too who were all very friendly and helpful. We got breakfast in our weekend special rate which was good. Car parking next door now costs $15 per 24 hours single entry. If we don't win Lotto or get a job up north, we'll go back again

Room Tip: Cant say - ours was on the 7th floor

Happy with Kings as a restaurant. Service and food are good. Price is OK too. A definite option for me which I shall take up again living close by. We opted for the nasi goreng, Malaysian chicken curry and fish and chips respectively. All delivered in reasonable time. Was pleased to see that menu is not overly complicated so kitchen is probably well primed for what they do. Nothing wrong with that. Happy with the experience.

This hotel is in a great location the the Perth CBD but the rooms are a bit outdated. Some things have been updated/modernized but others not so much. The price was fine for what you got and it was clean and staff friendly.

This hotel was a last resort for a short notice trip to Perth with very limited availability elsewhere and very high rates. It is not surprising they had rooms free. While very centrally located this is a very tired hotel although if you are an aficionado of 70s decor it may well suit. My room was large but oh so dreary, in desperate need of refurbishment and bit smelly. However given the decor in the lobby my room shouldn't have been a surprise. The tariff included a breakfast buffet which was OK and the bar area was cosy enough with some leather sofas. But my advice is book elsewhere earlier to get a lower rate or find a B&B (I've used some of these in Perth and they are much better value).

Room Tip: I saw no evidence of "good rooms"
