Both of us had a good nights sleep in the Hilton, despite it apparently being hottest Perth night in history! We had breakfast in local Dome cafe that had excellent WiFi. Walked back down to Barrett St ferry pier and bought round trip ticket to Fremantle. The 1 hour trip down was accompanied by Australian songs and interestingly biased commentary …
OMG! A Hilton Hotel! Queen Bed ... feather pillows . . .duvet. Only for one night but, now SWAGS are just a distant nightmare :-)
Perth is a very busy city. Accommodations (at least, those in our snack bracket) are fully booked!! The iCentre in Perth was very helpful in finding us accommodations. We're booked into the Pensione …
Welcome to Western Australia. Our two weeks in Perth are coming to a close and we have had a wonderful relaxing and entertaining time. The weather has been typical Australian summer, very hot and dry, but thankfully not as hot as the devastating heat causing the blazes across Victoria. We have been staying with Ashley's family who have all …
After relocating to Australia in April 2006 I was quite keen to get projects all over Australia to get a chance to discover the country. So I was quite happy that my first project took me to Perth and Australia's West coast. Not only because Australian winter is quite pleasant at that side of the continent if you compare it to Melbourne. I got a …
All the washing and ironing is done, house is clean and yes I even made my bed! Poor Braeden has information overload on how to use the washing machine, make sure you lock the doors, not too many parties etc etc and I'm sure he just wanted us to go!! We are now sitting at the airport awaiting departure. Mixed feelings, excited to be going but already missing my boy ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Parmelia Hilton Perth
My husband and I decided to stay at a hotel overnight to preserve our sanity during a house move that coincided with very hot weather.
Stayed for four nights between Christmas and New Year, having got an amazingly low rate of AUD 90 (including tax and service) from Hilton's own website.
Efficient Business Hotel
I stay here about once a year. The Hotel is a good choice for business. The staff is helpfull, friendly and efficient. The breakfast buffet is large and has good choices of healthy food, with some type of color coding system rating the food according to healthy criteria, i.e. high fiber, low fat, high protein, etc. The valet parking system is efficient.
The rooms are dated and the view towards the river is obstructed by a high rise mirror windowed office building. If you value privacy be sure your shades are pulled as the office building is close enough to see clearly into the room. Overall the Hotel is as good a choice as you can get in downtown Perth and will adequately serve one's needs.
Arrived on Christmas Day after longhaul flight from UK. Service impeccable. 10th floor room had limited views due to high rise tower opposite, but room (and bed) was enormous, bathroom with sunken bath and (seperate) huge shower certainly helped us relax. Got a great rate through wotif.com. The best breakfast buffet ever seen. Massive selection and high quality products. Repeat visit a week later showed the same service and standards, although the restaurant was closed, which we were not advised about. Still I would recommend.
Always a pleasurable stay!
The hotel is a firmly established property, while some rooms may be small, the quality of the furniture and amenites is excellent. The lobby is qaint and charming. The food is excellent and the staff are super helpful every time we stay. We have stayed many times and it is always a pleasure. On top of this the location is great!
OK but not special
I stay here reguarly for business because its convenient to the office.
The Hotel is clean, staff are friendly and rooms decor is of a good standard. The restaurant and bar are also good. However, there is nothing special about the hotel - it is old (but refurbished) and there are newer properties available at better rates in the city.
I certainly wouldnt stay here if i was paying the bill myself.
There is now in-room broadband available on the 9th floor rooms only - at A$25/day.
Overall Perth is underserviced in the 5* or better quality 4* range. There really isn't that much of quality compared to other similar sized cities around the world.
Awful value for money - very small room that looked like it hadn't been cleaned properly in years. Very flimsy windows meant a cold nights sleep and noise from outisde. This is a standard room - if you can afford to stay in a suite you probably shouldn't be reading Tripadvisor anyway! Only positive is the friendly and amiable staff.
In no way deserving your money or cutsom. Stay at Chifley on the Terrace (4*) two mins round the corner instead.
their hotel is wonderful it has something for all ages i will defently go back their i must say it is one of the best hotels i have ever vistited their was one disavantage that was their was no free choclate and biscutes which i hvae received in the warkick hilton and sevral other hiltons but other than that i reconmend hilton hotel the staff is lovely and helpful go for it if your near even if its just 1 night you will want to go back good luck for the future
My stay at the Parmelia was most enjoyable. My suite contained an extremely comfortable kingsize bed and was furnished in comfortable tradional style. The standard of cleanliness was excellent, the room was well serviced each day. The friendly staff are obviously well managed and there is a pleasant relaxed atmosphere. The food in the restaurants and bars is interesting, international and well prepared and presented. I look forward to my next visit.
We stayed here July 03. We arrived from a 5 hr flight and had a hassle with the hotel rate. They were trying to charge as more then quoted. We sorted it out ( they were wrong ) and went into the ground floor restuarant. My brother and myself ordered beef burgers. The beef was NOT BEEF but that awful processed meat ( not real beef ). DON"T ORDER THE BURGERS. The buffet breakfast was nice though and the staff at buffet were also very friendly. Our other problem was that our room was meant to have a King size bed, it took me a night to realise that the hard piece in the middle was actually the joining of 2 double beds. Can you bealive that??The best part of the hotel was the valet service. VERY EFFICIENT!Hotel is quite old and needs to be pulled down and restored. The ouside of the hotel looks quite terrible, like Commision Flats. My brother works in the pool industry and said that no-one should swim in the pool because it was not clean and could make you sick.I would not stay here again when next in Perth.
