Stayed overnight on short notice. Room was old and dated but for price and location was very reasonable. Nice staff and quality of room was clean and good size. If stayed in Perth again would consider again due to location too CBD.

This is a little jewel, my wife and I drove over from Sydney and were looking for somewhere secure and VFM in the city centre, this spot ticks all the boxes, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the location is right in the middle of town - 3 blocks for everything in terms of shopping and eating, and really...

Return trip - new owners form last time. Friendly service at the check in. Room some what dated but clean. My room was on the second floor so it was a walk up the stairs. If that is going to be an issue - request a ground floor unit. Only down side really was the free concert in the park...

Booked this pace based on its location. No lifts and given a room on the third floor. Got to the room and found the door had a glass panel in it, very poor for privacy as the bathroom door was right next to the front door. Once inside the room, it was dirty, the kitchenette was tiny and dirty, would...

My family of four plus a baby stayed in a 2 room apartment unit at the City Waters for 6 days in Dec 2013 during our vacation in Perth.

We have stayed in the apartments several times over the last few years. We always enjoyed our stays. Sadly the place is under new management and all the staff have been replaced. The rooms are musty, and the linen and carpets are in desperate need of replacement. The reception staff are somewhat officious, and unfriendly now, which is such a...

check in and check out is effortless. Parking is provided and easy. Unit are clean and well kept albeit grey walls and simple furnishings. Everything works well including kitchen tv bath etc. Nice central place and within walking distance to Hay street Mall and just next to Langley Park and the swan river. I would stay again.

We stayed here for three nights on our arrival from the UK. Let's concentrate on the strong points, namely location and price. Good value by Australian prices and very handily placed for the city centre and public transport. Yes, it's rather careworn motel-style accommodation and the rooms are somewhat murky but they are cleaned properly and the reception staff are...

Stayed here for 5 nights although great for budget accommodation it's a bed to sleep on. For longer stays than a night is highly not recommended the rooms are a horrible green colour and really dark. Quite an uneasy and depressing feeling being there. The website says they have free wifi which is not the case as its $10 per...
