I'm quite suprised how bad others have reviewed this hotel, but being there myself with my 4 friends, I just had to write something to do some justice for this hotel. I would recommend this hotel to friends who are into budget travelling, and prefers cooking own food during Perth visits.
Unique Quality: I am a budget traveller, booked Mountway for its cheap price and also the fact that it can accomodate us all in 1 room, + having our very own kitchen where we can cook all our budget meals. They have all we need in the kitchen - pots, pans, spoons, forks, hot plate, kettle, even rice cooker (upon request). The essentials: beds (maybe not in the best condition but provided us with a comfortable good night sleep), small TV, iron + ironing board, cupboard, towels (for all 5 of us), extra fan, air-cond, and a spacious bathroom. The room was not sparkling clean but it was very acceptable - not once did i feel grossed out by anything. The best part is that it is located in the city center, near Kings Park - we toured the city by foot, walked to Perth train station - very convenient indeed. The staff were also very helpful, provided us with maps of Perth and showed us places of interest. They even helped us book our Pinnacles Tour. We felt welcomed instantly and made our Perth visit stress-free.
We were very disappointed with Mountway and consider that their advertising doesn't match up with what we experienced. Our room was dirty, smelly, and in need of maintenance (cracked windows, peeling paint, newspaper stuffed in a wall vent). The decor is very dated (circa late 1970s). Mountway is right next to the freeway, therefore you need to keep all windows and doors closed to get any quiet. While it is close to the city, that's about all it has going for it. Definitely not recommended.
Unique Quality: Close to city
Directions: It's in a good residential area, it's just the worst building in the street. Walkway across freeway (immediately next to Mountway) gives easy access to city.
