Criterion Hotel Perth

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Partner and i stayed here as an easy place to get to after the Swan Valley Wine Tour. Room was large and comfortable, bath could have been a bit cleaner. The hotel is in desperate need of maintenance and an overall fixup. We stayed on the top floor, where one window was open all the time, letting in midgies and moths.. overall a great hotel, but needs a good fix up.

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in September. The hotel is rather old, but perfectly clean, rooms are spacious, comfortable, the staff is very, very polite and nice. Hotel is very conveniently located in the centre, it is also very easy to get it from the airport by bus (n.380). I did not try breakfast, as I preferred to go out for coffee-there is a lot of cafeteries and small restaurants nearby.

The location is excellent, but its very very old and run down. The staff are a bit clueless, the price was ok for Perth but just not up to scratch for modern times. Walls are so thin and you can hear everything from your neighbours. Room was clean. Good if you are really really on a budget, I recommend to pay a little more and stay somewhere nicer

This place was great for a one night stay. I needed somewhere cheap and central that was close to the train station. The place has so much potential as it is a beautiful old building in such a good location. Unfortunately it hasn't been updated, refurbished or painted in a very long time. The room was clean however there is a fair bit of paint peeling of the walls. Everything does work but is just very old. The bed wasn't overly comfortable as it was clearly a cheap and old mattress. The staff are friendly and we were even able to leave our bags for a couple of hours after checkout while we went into the city.

I stayed at the Criterion Hotel for 2 nights with my sister. I live in Perth but it was an opportunity to chat (uninterrupted) / shop (plenty of nice locations) / eat (without cooking) and have a drink (without having to drive). The facilities are old and in need of attention but it was very clean and the bathroom and bed linen were clean and new looking. Everything included in the room: Air con/fridge/safe/TV/ free WiFi / robe and cupboards. The staff were very pleasant and went out of their way to oblige with requests and answer questions. It is a budget hotel and you get excellent value for money. I will not hesitate to return.

Yes the building is in need of a lot of maintenance. However our room was clean, quiet and comfortable, The meals were excellent value from the $9 breakfast to our evening meal, the location is the best and the staff are pleasant. However be fair if you are want 5 star accommodation remember you will have to pay 3 times the amount. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

A. beautiful art deco building with lovely service. I loved the firm bed. New linen floor and surfaces spotless. Yes if you need perfect curtains and walls for less than $80. Aussie a night stay elsewhere. The location is superb. Part of Hay at mall. Close to District Could should you need them. This place has solid walls so is extremely quiet. Highly recommended for after long flights. Daytime sleep no issue as they act by quietening down noisy cleaners on request.

I stayed there for 1 night with my family, and to be honest it was the worst night that I have ever had, the bed was hard I barely got any sleep, the room hare next to nothing in it, it does not look like what it does in the brochure, I will never go back there again.

We were passing the hotel and stopped here for Easter Sunday lunch as it advertised a reasonably priced meal. My wife ordered the vegetarian spaghetti and commented that it was the best spaghetti she had eaten, flavorsome and not overpowered by sauce. It was supplemented by very good service. We also ordered wine which was well priced and provided with a rarity in these times, chilled glasses. We would be happy to eat here again at any time.

I like the location of the hotel. Easy access to hay st and murray st malls- target, woolworths, meyers, david jones - perth CAT lines buses, subway restaurant, mc d, souvenior shops. All types of restaurants and cafes are within walking distance. The room is just nice for two people. Nothing fancy simple and clean. If they installed a bidet in the toilet will be much appreciated by the asian people. The services at the reception and housekeeping are very nice, fast and friendly.
