I stayed with my wife from 21st to 24th of Jan 2014. As everybody else said, location is best....the only two other hotels that can match this location are rydges and ibis, while all others even the famous ones are far inferior location-wise. Perth Underground station is at a stone's throw, which makes this place wonderfully well connected.
About the hotel, it is a nice basic hotel. I had booked a normal/ standard room and was surprised with the tiny size of the room. My room was 526, which is on the back side with not much to view from window but quieter as it is away from the street.
Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, am grateful for that. I became IHG rewards club member after booking this trip at the hotel and the hotel was kind enough to extend me a free wifi and free daily newspaper during my stay, which was awesome. Another awesome thing was the availability of both soft and hard pillows with label on them, which we appreciated a lot as my wife likes to sleep on soft while I prefer hard/ firm.
We did encounter some housekeeping issues when we saw stains on our used cups/ mugs after the room was refreshed and provided feedback on that during check-out. I believe cups and mugs should be replaced every time and should be sanitized in a dishwasher before being returned to the room, but I have found that 90% of hotels do not practice it, so I normally keep disposable paper cups with me. Another thing that bothered us was the cost of mineral water bottles, a 600ml cost us around $4 and 1L or 1.5L was around $6 or $7, which we found to be pretty unreasonable. The range of movies available on MOD (movies on demand) was good but the prices can be a wee-bit reasonable.
Overall it was a good stay and I would certainly recommend the hotel.
