Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.

  • Not just a place to get books. The building is absolutely breathtaking, from the outdoor plant wall and pool to the beautiful interior. The ceiling mural is awesome, and sitting below it and looking u...  more »
  • Libraries have changed and this one is worth visiting to find out how. On site cafe or byo, wifi, magazines and papers, chairs and stools aplenty and huge windows to watch Perth go by in between  more »

  • Lisa Scaffidi Should go retire she has sucked the life out of the perth city council what a weasel seriously doesn't even know she's done wrong.
  • Enjoyed my time here so much i love it!
  • Helpful staff.
  • Motorcyclists are not given the same respect as car users. There are about 6 motorcycle bays in the city, which you are only allowed in for half an hour. (Not even enough time to walk from the park to get what you want in the city) Not only that, you cannot park on footpaths even if it does not interfere with pedestrians, and worst of all; if all motorcycle bays are full, and you go to park in a car spot (and PAY) you will still get a ticket. Why dont i use the multi-story parking? I have tried but i was told motorcycles cannot enter as they are 'to loud' Stupidity is & revenue raising is what the city of perth is about. Not in the best interest of retail shops in city. As a result; Never have i gone back to the shops in the city, i just go to the larger shopping centres. Get your shitake mushrooms together perth council, How about move with the times and adapt to melbournes system.
  • Perth WA is the equivalent to Brisbane QLD lets face no-one on the Internet will say it but i am going out on a limb here Perth is very similar to Brisbane in terms of it relies allot upon Public Transport such as many Buses, the same Trains are used, The train station Perth Station is a tad different to Brisbane's Central station and its not quite Roma Street Station, its probably what Brisbane should have when it eventually creates a underground line in its CBD. Brisbane should took to Perth's Underground Rail line. Perth has two malls to make up for Brisbane's Queen st Mall. Hay and Murray streets/Forrest Chase Malls have everything your need just like in Brisbane all the top of the range shops are with in walking distance , there are many arcades both have Myer and David Jones and a Target, Perth has more supermarkets in the CBD compared to Brisbane but Brissy has BigW. Also Brisbane has the famous Myer Xmas Windows where as the Perth version doesn't. Perth Malls have outdoor eating areas and a performance area but something that Brisbane has that may in future help Perth they have integrated Queen street Bus Station under neath the Mall, now at the moment Perth is completing a new Bus station near Perth Station so it might be too late but there is so many buses that use St Georges Terrace that maybe a underground network of busways that can pass under the Malls might be something to look for in future, when congestion becomes a problem. Now Perth compared to Brisbane does not promote night time activities i don't care what the Premier says that North bridge is the night club capital. All the Accommodations, Mercure, Novotel etc... are in the CBD area why shut down the CBD so early. when you have problems theres homeless people on the streets, the street east of Hay and Murray Street Malls are dark, dull and very dodgy at night time. Mciver station and Mciver area itself is a dodgy Redfern Sydney like area, Northbridge reminds me of Kings Cross in Sydney, i don't know what the Government of WA is thinking but Northbridge to me doesn't feel like a welcoming place at night for people with young families nor is Mciver. I think Perth needs to work on improving areas of the CBD and build over Mciver station and make a proper pedestrian connection from Mciver to Perth City its not all about getting off from Perth Station when my hotel is closer to St Mary's Cathedral that is something i don't understand why everyone has to get off at Perth station when Mciver can better used. Perth has a ferry it only goes 2 ways City to South Perth and back , Brisbane has the City cat Network with additional ferries surely Perth can have CityCat(Dual Hull Catamarans) looking at Google Maps Swan River system has a similar outlay to Brisbane and i see no reason why Catamarans can't be used on the Swan River to service River suburbs imagine arriving in style to Crown Perth, Uni of WA, Belmont Race Course, Ascot, even a wharf for the Perth Airport imagine landing at Perth airport and Catching a Ferry from the airport this is the innovations that Perth and WA Government need to realise you could even catch the ferry to the swan valley. Otherwise Perth needs to work on the Tourism side they need a Esplanade or Perth Giant ferris Wheel, a Parkland area like Southbank in Brisbane where people can have a family night time experience i don't think you can have a family orienteted night time experience in Northbridge, Perths equivalent is a Green football sized rectangle field that serves no purpose imagine the money that could come in if Perth had a Southbank style area with artificial beach like in Brisbane /Cairns. Anyway Perth might be the city of lights but the closer you get to the city the more you notice that its a sleepy place at night.
