STAY HERE : ALEX HOTEL PERTH
Alex Hotel is central to all you need in the city centre and has an inviting warmth in its minimalistic charm. The philosophy of the hotel is guest engagement beyond the room. As you walk through the open plan lobby, a beautiful shared table awaits, with a barista station to the left overlooking State Library square. The staff are divine, and their words to us on each meeting felt, well, just like family. The room interiors are fresh, modern, well supplied and everything you might need on a stay away from home.
Sunset in WA casts in over the heavenly bed, and as it does draws your attention to the design detailing that has gone into the room – I personally fell in love soft green grey juxtaposition with the polished cement ceiling. How I’d love my home, which is perhaps why it feels like so much that way.
Oh, but go back a moment… let’s talk sunsets a little more. Which, in Western Australia are something else, and not to be missed from the rooftop of Alex (featured image). Help yourself to a drink from the Honour Bar and venture on up. Alex Hotel has minimised the likes of mini bars in the room and instead created an Honour Bar on the mezzanine with a variety of local wines and nibbles, plus a moment to say hi to fellow guests. The Perth sunset is intensely beautiful, casting light and shadow all over the city and absolutely unforgettable. And when the sun goes down, the shadows continue downstairs at the hotel’s restaurant and wine bar – Shadow Bar.
