I was in Perth for my graduation and chose the Median Grand Perth for its location to the Convention & Exhibition Center. When we go there, we didn't realise how close it was so the location was perfect.
The hotel was close to all means of transport (bus, ferry and train) and very easy to walk around as well.
We booked a 2 bedroom apartment which weren't ready when we got there but they were happy to store our luggage so we could go out and explore. The luggage was in our room when we returned later that day. We were told we would receive a phone call when it was ready but this didn't happen but it didn't bother us as we were happy exploring.
The room was very large and perfect for 4 people. We were on the top floor so we had the huge wrap around balcony. I had more family staying in a different 2 bedroom apartment and theirs was a little larger (room wise) but they had a smaller balcony so it doesn't really matter. The rooms were also cleaned everyday.
There is a washing machine and dryer in the room, however you need to pay for the washing powder plus my sisters said the dryer didn't work in their room. I didn't try it in ours.
The pool is small, felt a little over-crowded at times and there is a lot of chlorine so it did hurt the eyes a little bit, but it was never cold. The gym only had a treadmill, cross trainer and a couple of weight machines. There was also a spa.
I didn't try the restaurant downstairs but just looking at the prices I found it a little pricy, $21 for a club sandwich. Although, I did find other Perth restaurants pricey and the services wasn't good at all.
We needed a taxi a couple of times to go out for dinner and had some issues. One night reception called and booked the taxi for us and had to call 3 times and they kept hanging up on her. We called ourselves and it turned up straight away. Another time we requested a taxi and reception didn't call so we ended up calling ourselves. So either call and book a taxi yourself or take the 2 minute walk to the main street and flag a taxi down.
As there are 2 Medina hotels in Perth (10 mins apart) make sure you tell the taxi driver if they question which one, just say go to the Convention and Exhibition Center and they will know where to go.
Apart from the taxi issue the staff were friendly and were able to provide assistance with other queries we had. I would recommend staying here as the prices were reasonable and location is excellent for functions at the center.
