Accommodation in Perth Oct

Hi TA Experts

Happy weekend!

My husband, my friend and I are travelling to Perth for 10D9N in October for a wedding. We will have almost a weeks free to explore but we will not be driving (not an option because though we know how to drive, we do not have license - expired and wont be able to renew in time).

I am looking at few Airbnb apartments near city and was advised by my Perth friend that they are unsafe. It will be better to be around Vic Park, South Perth, Como or East Perth area.

Our budget is approx 200AUD per night.

May I ask for your feedback for the following apartments please? Which is the safe and convenient area for non driver?

Thank you!

Syllaw

Why does your friend think the CBD locations are unsafe? I would stay in any of those. I think the second one might be marginally better for public transport but without exact addresses it’s hard to say that definitively.

Staying in the suburbs makes public transport a bit less convenient.

Hi

Thanks for feedback. She mentioned CBD is sleazy at night and can be dangerous especially Murray st and near Northbridge. The first and second links are near Murray St. Second one is at 101 Murray st. Third one is 5 mins walk away from Langley Park.

Thanks!

Best Regards

Syllaw

Parts of the city can be a bit sleazy but neither my husband (a policeman) nor I would think twice about those locations. We often go into the city at night ourselves for dinner or concerts etc. Even Northbridge has got pretty tame these past years. With the same precautions you would use at home (eg don’t wander into dark alleys and if you see someone who looks drunk or chemically enhanced, leave them well alone etc) and as long as you’re not hanging around the nightclubs very late, you should be fine.
