My wife and I booked into the Criterion Hotel in Perth for a two- night stay in August 2016. This is the high season for hotels in Perth, so we paid AUD 153.00 per night for this allegedly 3 star hotel with breakfast. The reception area was extremely shabby. The room we were given was even shabbier. There was one...

We booked through Booking.com and chose this hotel because we were being collected from there for a 9 day tour. Great central location and a good price for that BUT we were dismayed at the state of the rooms and public areas. This hotel was neglected and in poor decorative condition. Yes it was clean but that's about all I...

For a start the picture they are using is NOT the hotel! That's a bad start. The whole hotel needs updating. Wifi is next to useless. We only stayed there because we were being picked up from that location.

Room was average. Noted old mould areas that had been painted over. I had to ask for extra towels for night 2. The building is old, would benefit from a good renovation. Location is prime. Close to everything in the cbd and elizabeth quay. Staff very helpful. All in all 5/10 stay.

Old but consider still comfortable room. Some of the hidden plug point (behind headboard) looks worn out as i relocated the bed position. The location is excellent next to the convenience stall where i always go convenience stall to buy foods and used their microwave to heat the foods. The cleaner did not wash our cup after we used where...

Recently visited Perth for a business trip and stayed here . The staff were very friendly but the facilities have seen better days. This place needs some serious money spent on it to bring it up to standard. Wifi extremely flakie to the point of not being able to use it for hours on end.

Nothing than the location. Centrally located in the city. Carpet in Room have many stains, dirty carpet, front door is cracked, Room smell unfresh. Wall painting tears off. Scary feeling of living in an old place.

Central accommodation. Very well priced for a budget quality. Friendly helpful staff and all I required for a 2 night stay. The small hotel was clean and well equipped. I would recommend it without reservation.
