Perth, the capital city of Western Australia, is currently booming. The well earned reputation of not exactly having the best deals on Hotels, is hardly surprising. Occupancy rates are at records highs. So, here's a little trick. Leave the Perth CBD, cross over the train tracks to the eclectic and cultural district of Northbridge, and you will find the All Seasons Perth - a quality hotel that deserves a look.
Clean, modern, and perfectly located, and fairly spacious as well. The Queen room had one very comfy Queen size bed as well as a spare single bed. Useful for storing a bit of excess luggage, or if you're the type of couple that may just require two separate beds. Fortunately, I was in the good books with 'er indoors, and the single bed remained unused. I found the staff at the All Seasons to be really helpful. Although there are restaurant and bar options as a part of the hotel, the staff were enthusiastically providing meal suggestions in the local area. Of which, there are hundreds, from all sorts of ethnicity's and cuisines (most at the budget end of the price scale - always a bonus).
The rooms are "nice" but not overly fancy. You could almost say "spartan" in a multi-national-value-hotel-franchise way. Equipped with what you would expect (including a mini-bar, and unless you're on the company dime, give that one a miss). However, in this part of Perth, the hotel options of this calibre are few and far between. Whatever character the All Seasons lacks, is more than made up for by the locality. In fact, locality really is one of the highlights of the hotel.
So, my advice is to skip the CBD - whether you're in Perth for business or pleasure, you'll enjoy this side of the tracks much more. And, given most of the other Northbridge accommodation options are backpackers hostels - the All Seasons if bound to make it to your short list. This is a good thing, All Seasons is a great Hotel to use as a base when visiting Perth.
