The biggest city in Western Australia and for many hundreds of miles around, Perth has established a great reputation for being laid-back and cosmopolitan. Western Australia’s main airport is also in Perth and that means an inordinately high number of hotels to choose from when making your trip.
Luckily we decided to help make that choice a little easier for you. Judging each place on a number of categories such as price, location and amenities on offer, we have chucked out plenty of options to settle on these five places, which we think are the best overall value in Perth.
