On a budget? Consider these interesting options.

  • Comfort Hotel Perth City: This place is known for two things: friendly staff and a delicious breakfast spread. The rooms are your typical hotel rooms, but large enough to make the price worth it. This is a good option when it comes to comfortable yet “cheap” accommodation in Perth.
  • Travelodge Perth: Simple, well-kept rooms with a view. With occasional deals, this hotel is more than good enough in a high-priced city like Perth.
  • Perth City YHA: Occupying an impressive 1940s art-deco building by the train tracks, this place has clean rooms and excellent facilities, including a gym. With its central location, it was made popular by the FIFO (‘fly-in, fly-out’) mine workers, but is always open to tourists too.
  • City Waters: One of the last motels in Perth, this old-fashioned place has small and simple rooms that are clean and airy, with gorgeous views of the waterfront.
  • Perth Central Caravan Park: Located between the airport and the city, this place has powered sites for caravans or tents, luxury glamping tents, cabins, a pool, and other facilities. Family and dog-friendly, this fun campsite is also just a three-minute walk from the Swan River.
