Where to stay in Perth for 3 nights - two 20 something guys

Hi,

Wanting to know a good place to stay in Perth close to night life for 3 nights. Preferably walking and/or taxi to night clubs.

Somewhere 3 to 4 star and close to restaurants.

Cheers

Alex

The hotel shortage is really bad in Perth, so whenever you are coming, you should book something ASAP.

Budget?

When?

The CBD has some cheapie hotels, like the Ibis, Holiday Inn,Four Points Sheraton, Rydges etc .. or there are a couple of hostels..

Northbridge is the centre for nightlife, and has heaps of restaurants and pubs ... it's a 15 minute walk across the railway line from the CBD ...

Unfortunately we fly out to Fiji on Monday which is about to be hit by a cyclone, so we are trying to find an alternate holiday destination.

Can't book anything for Perth until we have confirmation of cancellation.

So being quick to secure accommodation is a bit of a hassle atm but we are looking lol.

Have been told to try hotels along beach strip so was thinking Fremantle area?.

Cheers

Alex

Alex there is an extreme accom shortage in Perth due to the FIFO workers booking up everything. Hence why we warn people not to get their hopes up.

Your best bet would be to look at sites like wotif.com.au quickbeds.com.au needitnow.com.au and any others out there (they are the 3 I use regularly) and look for hotels with addresses in Perth CBD, Northbridge, Fremantle - and maybe Cottesloe and Scarborough would suit your ages too.

Whatever you find - book it !

Hi there. Fremantle is a great spot but you might find Cottesloe gives you a better holiday/beach vibe which you are after. Try Ocean Beach Hotel- the OBH- http://www.obh.com.au/

has accommodation and has a very popular Sunday session.

Can access the train with a pleasant 15 minute walk and in summer a shuttle runs from the Cottesloe station.

My 20 somethings kids don't frequent Northbridge but would tend to go to small pubs and bars in the city- Bennys in Freo is where they go to dance. They also frequent Little Creatures in Fremantle and can highly recommend. Cant help you with the more traditional nightclub scene.

Another area you could consider is Scarborough. Others on this forum will help you with that area.

Be aware that many bars etc have strict dress codes at night time for entry and drinks are pricey.

Should you come to West you might enjoy Rottnest-don't know if any places available at Kingstown Barracks.

Those websites like wotif and laststay etc would probably be your best bet.. you get a big list of rooms available.

If not in the CBD< I too would try Fremantle and Scarborough.

Good luck.

Don't stay in the CBD area. You would find it really dull and would have to get a cab to go anywhere remotely suitable for your age group. Perth CBD is pretty dull at the best of times for nightlife.

You could try the Northbridge Hotel. It is quite a reasonable hotel, rooms are nice and clean. It is an older hotel but for the price, in Perth, it can be a good choice. This is close to Hyde Park and about a 5-7 minute walk into Northbridge where there are lots of restaurants, bars, clubs etc. Just be aware and avoid dark laneways, deserted streets etc in the early hours of the morning, (although this is common sense to me).

Also Fremantle would be a good choice, lots of nightlife and activity during the day, although accomodation there is expensive.

Disagree about CBD being dull. My 20/30 yr olds enjoy the vibe now in the city-this article sums up changes :

gourmettraveller.com.au/perth-travel-guide.h…

However, CBD is expensive and cheaper bars and accommodation are in other areas. Many young tourists might be happier at this time of the year staying in Scarborough, Cottesloe or Freo for the beach scene and cafes and pubs in these places.

I would go for a backpacker's . Accommodation in Oz in general is overpriced, if not staying with rellie's I generally stay at backpacker's when I travel around Oz. There are quite a few to choose from along William St, in Northbridge etc, many are clean and decent.

Fremantle, also a good small bar scene on St George's Tce and surrounds in the city without going to Northbridge, Cottesloe is also good and you can catch the train to Fremantle from there.
