Hotel's Favourite
I was impressed with the clever design of this hotel. So many beautiful touches ,great artwork, great position . Put with impeccable staff and this made a fabulous stay. Their sister restaurant. ‘Shadow Wine Bar” should not be missed. It is often quite busy with Perth residents ( a good sign) and the menu has lots of delicious vegetarian options. Delicious creative food. ( try the carrot dish) mmmmm

I've stayed here five times in as many years - the Alex never disappoints. The rooms are immaculate, the amenities wonderful (even in light of some changes arising from the pandemic!), and the staff are an absolute delight to interact with - friendly, approachable and very helpful. The in-house and Shadow Bar menus are wonderful, too. This really isn't a hotel as far as I'm concerned, it's like a second home.

Second time visit to the Alex to do some early Xmas shopping in Perth. Stayed in one of the rooms facing the library on the fifth floor instead of noisy Northbridge this time. Room was pure stylish European / Scandinavian minimalism, quiet and clean. Loved the bacon egg brown sauce sandwich for brekkie. Member of staff made me a great chai latté and was very helpful booking taxis for the day of my departure. Hotel is perfectly situated to explore PICA, AGWA and the epic new museum. So easy to jump on a train too from the central station. Roof top views for sundowners are magical, such a lovely use of space. Beautiful interiors for design inspiration too! Got my dose of “hygge” during my stay after not being able to get back to UK/ Europe for sometime now. Would definitely recommend for a short break!

For me, staying at The Alex is like visiting a good friends home. (A friend with great taste.) Their decor is euro cool, the location is handy for a drink, entertainment and good food. You can hang out in the lounge or the dining room and work or chat or of course you can relax in your room. There’s wine and beer in the fridge and a simple tasty breakfast in the morning. If you want a cuppa pretty much anytime just ask. The Alex is simply where I want to stay.
