The Perth hotel scene is undergoing somewhat of a boom. With the recently completed Crown Towers and SPG/Marriott expansion featuring the first Aloft hotel in Australia, paving the way for the new kid on the block!
Tribe Hotel in in the West Perth business district has just opened its doors and invited Ricky from Fork Sake and myself to come down and check out their edited hotel experience, designed for an international cast looking for something more. With a promise of no out-of-date services, hotel clichés or hidden extras and designer driven highly functional rooms that are luxurious and unique with an appreciation for affordability.
Tribe Perth Location
Located on Walker Ave, Tribe hotel is in a perfect spot for business while maintaining a convenient distance from the CBD and surrounding nigh life spots such as Northbridge, Leederville and Subiaco. It’s right next to King’s Park which is perfect for a morning run and makes up for the lack of hotel gym facilities.
The full address is: 4 Walker Avenue, West Perth, WA 6005, Australia
Check In & Lobby
As soon as you enter Tribe Hotel, it’s as if you’ve just entered a fashion designer’s lounge room. Lots of different textures and colours pop out and mood lighting is right on point.
Check in was fast and friendly and before we knew it we were waiting for the elevator to to take us up to our room on the top floor. It was 5pm and the downstairs lounge and bar was already buzzing with guests ready to enjoy their weekend.
Tribe founder, Mark Peters is a pioneer in modular construction, and his work can be seen in the Tribe hotel design. The hotel shape seems to be modeled after shipping containers stacked on top of each other. Modern, minimalist and functional are probably the best words to describe the rooms. Although it’s a small space, everything you need is there including a free minibar, uber comfy bathrobes and shower products by Kevin Murphy. The whole space is cleverly thought out and nothing was left to chance, starting with the bed which has luggage storage compartments underneath to stash your bags. Full length windows offer a fantastic view over the city or King’s Park depending on which side of the hotel you’re staying.
The bed, linen and pillows were all very comfortable and I had an excellent nights sleep.
Each room comes with a free mini bar and Nespresso coffee machine. If you run out of water, no problem, just stock up downstairs. There’s no room service but these nice little extras are included with your stay.
Bathroom & Shower
The bathrooms are tiny but functional with full size rain shower and Kevin Murphy hair and body care products.
