“Good critique for Criterion”
Reviewed 2 January 2010

I was pleased with this place. I always try to stay at reasonably cheap places anyway. As long as the room has a shower, TV and fridge, that satisfies me. Who wants to go on a trip and stay in their room for the majority of the time?
So anyhow, I would compliment the staff on their knowledge of how to get about and where things are in Perth CBD. They also are adept at how to get to other locations, such as Kalamunda or Fremantle. The adjoining restaurant is very nice.
All hotel rooms have Do Not Disturb signs available, which I found helpful with being able to sleep-in. The staff will simply slip a note under your door saying they will come back later. Better than some places where they simply put the key in the lock and enter your room.
The central location is very useful. With the aid of a map I was able to walk to Subiaco, but I do enjoy walking and saving taxi fares. The only down side for me was the lift, which was slightly rattly, but not a big concern. The ensuite area was nice and clean. Great place to stay if you want to be conservative about spending money on accommodation. After all, this leaves you with more spending money when you get out and about.

Really liked the art deco style. The hotel staff were incredibly helpful and the room was comfortable, if compact.

1. Location: Great; within walking distance of pedestrianised malls, jetties, train stations.

2. Staff: Good (comparative to all hospitality and service staff in Perth). Not terribly helpful nor friendly for a tourist business but do get things done.

3. Free 24-hour wifi; irritating that only for 3-hour blocks, necessitating a trip to the lobby even in middle of night for new password. Computers available at lobby though.

4. Rooms are clean and of comfortable size; though facilities are basic and old.

We had prebooked 2 stays either side of a week long trip to Exmouth. The first room was pretty grotty on the ground floor and with hindsight we should have asked to be moved but after a long flight from Hong Kong we just wanted to go to bed. We then went on a our trip, on our return we had a room was on the 2nd floor and a lot lot nicer.
The hotel is in a good location, especially for the train station and shops and the restaurant was very good. If we had had a better room for the first stay it would have made our overall impression a lot better.

Hotel is in central Perth with easy access to the harbour and shops. The metro rail link to surrounding areas, including Fremantle, was 5 mins walk away.
The hotel has obviously seen better days and appears dated and a little shabby. The room was large, airy and comfortable with free internet access.
Breakfast is available in the adjacent restaurant as well as other meals, which were reasonably priced and good quality.

The hotel bar (located in basement) and street noise was so loud that I could not get to sleep til well after midnight. The noise was ridiculous and this was on a Tuesday night. I had to wake up at 3:30 am to catch a 5 am flight so I was very aggravated.
