As usual, we chose this by looking for cheap rates for the period we wanted where there were no damning (and preferably some positive!) reviews, and with a location that looked suitable on a map.
Perth has a reputation for being expensive, so we were happy to find accommodation at $135 per night. We didn't need parking but there was some first-come-first-served (probably enough for about 1/3 of the units).
It was a self-catered unit; kitchen equipment was sufficient if we had wanted to cook for ourselves (gas range plus microwave). Coffee/tea supplies and toilet paper were replenished, beds made and towels changed. There was a bath with an over-bath shower; the shower head was quite low and the space to shower quite narrow. Soap was provided, but no shampoo.
I note at least one review criticising the bed and bedding, but we found the bed perfect and the pillows sufficient too.
The location is technically just outside the CBD in East Perth, but it's still pretty accessible. One of the free city bus circuits runs very close by, Barrack St Jetty is not far, and the edge of the main retail area is an easy walk. The entertainment precinct of Northbridge is a little further, say 25-30 minutes.
We would stay here again. While you might think of being 'further in', everything in and near the CBD is spread thinly along the north bank of the Swan River, so you're going to have to walk or use transport wherever you stay.
