Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Perth Parmelia Hotel
A perfectly good place to stayfrom Rob1233
After reading the reviews (after I'd booked) I was very worried that we'd made a bad choice, but we had a really pleasant stay.
A great place to stayfrom WestAus
Over all I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who comes to Perth.
ve experiencedfrom AnissaHope
After a 29 hour one-way trip from Houston trip I would expect a comfortable bed especially when I paid for two extra days. I paid for the night before I arrived and the night that I departed. The room was furnished with two twin beds, not full, not queen but two twin beds. Not comfortable.
Upon check-in I asked for an electric plug/outlet converter since this was the Hilton. I was told there would be one available in the room. She didn’t mentioned it was packaged for sale at $16. She should have been honest and mentioned this up front.
There was long hair around the bath tub which I did not enjoying seeing during my bath.
First visit to this hotel and I received a view of lower roof with a/c units and an abandoned parking lot.
The upsetting incident was being awakened at 5:15am by the sound of running water.
Sahbby hotel with good stafffrom JamesG28
I stayed here for five days during a business trip to Perth. The most compelling feature of the hotel is its proximity to the Perth Convention Centre. It is also very convenient for Perth's central business district.
As a business hotel, however, it suffers from a number of limitations, including a very small, under-equipped business centre, poor meeting facilities, and no Executive Floor / Lounge that I could find.
My room was quite small and looked old. There were stains on the carpets and a cigarette burn in the shower curtain. The bathroom, in fact, looked like a student flat, with grouting peeling out from the tiles and the shower hanging above one end of the bath (instead of in a separate cubicle). It was impossible to get a constant temperature out of the shower and the water pressure was poor. The walls in the room were paper-thin and I could hear details of my next-door neigbour's evening telephone conversations with his wife.
There is one main restaurant, where I only tried the breakfast, and an adjacent steakhouse which I think is part of the hotel. Food in both was OK rather than great, and by no means good value.
The pool was small and cold and the gym below average for a major international hotel chain.
There were two redeeming features. Firstly, the location is undeniably good. Secondly, the staff seemed generally very helpful, friendly and polite - well above average. The hotel gets an extra 'overall experience' blob on account of its staff.
Having said that, the value for money is still dire. My room was AU$ 215 per night, for a basic room which didn't include breakfast, parking or anything else. There is much, much better value to be had in Perth,or indeed elsewhere in Australia.
For those who hold a Gold VIP Hilton HHonours card, don't expect much at this property. I usually enjoy a room upgrade and a complimentary continental breakfast in an Executive Lounge at Hilton properties, but neither was the case at the Parmelia. I was given a $35 food voucher, but since continental breakfast in the restaurant was $30 per day, this didn't go far.
In short, it's hard to find a good argument to stay here when there are better hotels for less elsewhere in Perth.
Lovely as always!from RobertWoods
Pretty good but not worth much more than the $90 promotionfrom fergalfrog
Also some stuff in the minibar was missing when we got in - (a bottle of powerade half empty - powerade was $6.50 a bottle) so we had to get housekeeping fix it up immediately to avoid being charged....
The lady who checked us in was terrible - no "enjoy your stay" etc not even the faintest smile - she also checked us out and barely gave us the time of day. This was undoubtedly the worst part. A motel for $50 a night would have been friendlier. We were made to feel like trash!
Didn't use the pool as it looked too cold - some kids went in but were out pretty quick suggesting it may not have been well heated. The gym was ok - pretty small and so I expect not much use when the hotel is busy.
The room was poorly sound proofed and we were awoken early due to a crane working outside. Room itself (on 5th floor) was pretty small and a little cramped although they did give me a corner one with a balcony on 2 sides.
The valet parking at $29 seems pricey and so we got alternative parking - however parking is so bad in Perth this is a good deal as the car will be retrieved as often as u like in a 24 hour period. Don't park in the convention centre - their parking tarifs make no sense whatsoever and will end up costing u a fortune. There is better priced parking at the esplanade hotel ($5.50 for overnight and all day Saturday)
I would go here again but only for the $90 deal - it is no way worth the normal prices.
All up I was expecting a superior service but it just didn't happen!
Average Business Hotel but needs upgradingfrom lettzz
Had a complimentary upgrade to a larger room which would have been very nice when new, but now is just in dire need of updating.
Marks on carpets, furniture, chipped paint on chairs, desks, very old air-conditioning system but very comfortable bed.
Wireless internet access is available, but you have to perch at very odd angles and ensure that you do not move an inch if you want to keep the very weak signal.
If money was spent on re-furbishing the rooms then the hotel would be perfect, as it is, like most antiques it smells a little musty and looks a little battered.
Friday night deal worthwhilefrom A TripAdvisor Member
We didn't get upgraded but found the room big enough for two people. The bed was extremely comfortable, we didn't hear the people in the rooms next to us, and the decor was modern. We were on a lower floor so perhaps it had been renovated compared to some of the dated rooms others had complained about.
The reception staff and porters were all very friendly. No one insisted on carrying our bags up although they did offer. We were offered our choice of complimentary newspaper for the next morning at reception, although our wotif booking didn't say that was included. We loved the comfy dressing gowns. The bathroom counter could have been cleaner (still some soap scum in the soap holder) but the rest of the bathroom and room were very clean. There was a desk and a sitting area with two comfy chairs. TV wasn't anything special but it had a few extra channels. The internet rates are scary unless you book the 24 hour rate. Without your laptop and using the keyboard attached to the TV is $5.50 per minute! Who would pay this with all the internet cafes in the neighbourhood? You'd quickly get up to the daily rate anyway.
The toileteries were nice but nothing fancy like Aveda or L'occitane. We didn't get a chance to try the gym or the pool (although included in the rate). We could see the outdoor pool from our room and it certainly looked nice.
The porters were happy to look after our luggage for the day after we checked out to go shopping. We were able to get free parking on the street so didn't use the valet service.
So for $90 I felt it was outstanding value, much better than our room at Seasons of Perth for $99 or Pacific International Apartments for $99.
Average hotel at an above average pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
It cost a bomb and there is FAR better value available in Perth. (The Mercure springs to mind).
The pool wasn't even filled with enough water, and it was cold. Our room seemed dated and the balcony had no outdoor furniture and chipped and peeling paint. No newspaper was available. The curtain didn't close all the way which allowed early morning sun in. These may seem petty gripes, but you could spend a lot less money and get alot more.
I would not stay here again, as I know of hotels in Perth that offer alot more for alot less money.
Never pay more than AU$130 per nightfrom CBDAustralia
Ah, the grand old Parmilia Hilton, well past its used by date. If only they carried the impressive redesign of the foyer and resturant though to the rooms!
AU$130 per night is the most you should pay for this hotel, any more than that and you start to have trouble justifying the age of the rooms.
Hmm, also wafer thin walls. I remember the first night of my stay, the neighbouring room must have been occupied by a mad Frenchman who was talking to himself loudly while playing "La Marseillaise" (French National Anthem) contually on repeat all night long at quite loundly from about 12:30am till 5:00am! The phone calls to reception to try and remedy the situation proved fruitless.
Short of that though the staff were fantastic, polite and very professional. cusine and room service were excellent, and the resturant seems to be quite popular with the locals.
Top Local Tips for Perth
Perth Airport There is no train service to Perths Airports and whilst you can catch a bus to some destinations its best to plan to catch a taxi. It will cost between $20 - $30AUD to most hotels in the heart of the city, a little more if you are heading for the beach.
For the late-nighter and the student Three tips: 1) If you plan on being in Perth for several days, I would recommend bringing more cash than if you plan to stay in Sydney, Melbourne, or even Hobart. I found that fewer businesses here accept credit cards than in those other cities. 2) Do be aware that many businesses in Australia, be them shops, bakeries, and even some full-scale restaurants, close at 5 pm. Some do open early – it is not uncommon to find bakeries open by 7 am, but after 5, finding an open store or eatery can be an issue. 3) If you are a student, make sure to have your ID with you. Some tourist sites offer a student or “concessions” rate, which is less expensive than the regular adult rate.
Perth - A One Day Wonder Perth is a one day visit town. Not much to do. The best thing you can do is take the train to the beach!
