New budget accommodation option in Perth

International hotel group GCP Hospitality is to open its first Australian property, Hostel G, in Perth in January.



Bookings will be available from January 4 with 50% discounts.

The new hostel concept puts an industry-first emphasis on community living and home comforts, including en-suite bathrooms in every room, linens and 24-hour security.

GCP Hospitality Chief Marketing Officer Marc Bichet said Hostel G is designed to be the first in a new generation of hostels, dubbed ‘hostel 2.0’, providing a hotel experience at an affordable price.

"Designed for the modern traveller seeking to explore cities like a local, Hostel G is set to be a new concept in lifestyle property, with a focus on conscious design, comfort and social connectivity," says the pre-opening blurb.

Hostel G is located in the Perth arts quarter of Northbridge and is the official accommodation partner of Perth’s 2019 Fringe World Festival.

The 296 guest rooms are shared across two room types – shared and private with Glam Shared offering four bunk-style rooms exclusively for female travellers.

The rooms feature unhostel-like complimentary extras such as hair dryers and bathroom amenities.

Groups of travellers seeking privacy can book out private guestrooms, with double-, twin-, four- or six-bed configurations available.

Each room features an en-suite bathroom and offers free wifi, air-conditioning, reading lights and USB charging stations.

Bichet said a major focus of the hostel was its communal spaces, including a games room, screening
room and co-working space.

“Our aim is to rival the service standards and amenity offerings found in most hotels,” he said.

GCP Hospitality runs 39 properties worldwide and has regional offices in Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Perth, San Francisco, Singapore and Yangon.

Best Hotels in Tokyo for Couples

The city of Tokyo is perched on the Japanese island of Honshu and is a beautiful clash of tradition and the futuristic. Exploring the wonders of this city is made all the more enjoyable with a hyper-efficient rail network connected the city’s 23 wards. The vast majority of Tokyo hotels are within a few minutes’ walk of a train station or two, meaning visitors to this city have less time to worry about how to get around and more time to enjoy themselves. The JR Yamanote train line boasts the city’s most popular areas.

Hotel Sardonyx Ueno Reviews

If you really want to save some money and are just looking for a place to lay your head in the evenings, this newly renovated business hotel is a good choice. It’s a short walk south of JR Ueno and Keisei Ueno Stations, and very close to Ameya Yokocho Arcade.

Rooms are small but reasonably comfortable. There’s a restaurant where you can eat the breakfast that comes with your room rate. The staff tries hard to please. Everything is spiffy and new.

Due to the low prices, this hotel attracts bus groups and other budget tourists. Soundproofing could be better, so you may hear guests next door or in the hallway.

The main selling point here is the price: It’s among the cheapest decent hotels in Tokyo. So, if you don’t mind staying in Ueno and only want a place to sleep for a couple of nights, this is a good bet.

Best Choice Tokyo Airport Transport
The Takeaway

Tokyo is served by two airports: Narita International Airport (NRT) and Haneda Airport (HND). Both airports serve international flights.Haneda is closer and more convenient to Tokyo but has fewer international connections.The best way between Narita and Tokyo is the JR Narita Express or N'Ex (Y3,020, 65 minutes). You can use a Japan Rail Pass to travel on the JR Narita Express. A Japan Rail Pass is definitely worth getting if you're visiting more than one city in Japan - see my comprehensive Japan Rail Pass guide to understand how it will save you money.Another option is the Keisei Skyliner which you can book online with GoVoyagin. See below for details and more options.The best way between Haneda and Tokyo is the Tokyo Monorail Line (Y490, 13 minutes on fastest trains) or a taxi (about Y6,000, 30 to 45 minutes). See below…
