Basic and cheap, did the job. Shower could do with new tap washers and new silicone to get rid of mould. There were lot of mosquitoes in room which was odd as the windows were closed. But all up it did job as it was only one night. Close to where I needed to go. Bed was comfortable.

Basic and sufficient. If you need a drop in joint that is easy on the pocket, the Criterion Hotel is the place for you.

Good value for money close to central Perth. Room and fittings were dated but functional. If you want a cheap night in Perth its worth considering.

good location but the whole place was in a state of decay and needs serious attention. The website gives a very false sense of reality.

Right in the middle of Perth City close to everything. You get what you pay for, all I wanted was clean sheets and bathroom, the bathroom needs upgrading but the shower was good and never ran out of hot water. It was exactly what I wanted for some that was only there to sleep and have breakfast, which was great.
