Checking in to check out the new boutique Hotel Tribe Perth. This stunning spot is world class, find out why…
TRIBE HOTEL PERTH
In the interests of luring more people to Perth even for a short stay, I am more than happy to introduce Tribe Hotel Perth! This brand new boutique hotel gem is easily one of the best I have yet had the privilege of staying in. The attention to detail in its design is evident in both the functionality for its guests and in the stunning decor.
The Tribe Hotel founders have done their research! This hotel is easily amongst some of the best boutique offerings worldwide. A cleverly designed use of what would otherwise feel like quite a small footprint, the space feels practical rather than small. The intention was to create a destination for the contemporary traveller to check into and they nailed it. Award-winning architect and interior designer Travis Walton collaborated with interior styling by Marsha Golemac to create the stylish design.
With a luxe marble surface at every turn, it is easy to mistake being in a Parisian Boutique Hotel such as many of those I listed in my recent Paris City Guide for Travellers. Not heading to Europe but feeling like a luxe hotel stay? Tribe Hotel Perth is your next step.
WHAT TO DO NEARBY
Easily the most obvious activity nearby would have to be a bike ride or stroll through Kings Park. Tribe Perth is situated across the road from the beautiful park. For some of the most stunning views of Perth, it is a short walk through the park to the lookout areas. From these you can check out the city skyline and iconic Swan River. You can loan one of the Hotels Lekker bikes for your ride.
Tribe Perth is also on the free CAT bus circle line, running back into the heart of the CBD, so the entire city is on offer. From cafes to shopping and excellent galleries, Perth has quite a lot to offer to rival the Eastern states. King Street is home to international designer boutiques such as Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany’s and more.

WHERE TO EAT IN PERTH
My first recommendation that I gave last week to interstate travellers staying at Tribe Perth was that if they like the baked goods on offer at the buffet breakfast, they should check out Mary Street Bakery. The guys at Mary Street are baking the buffet goods at Tribe. Their brunches and salted caramel donuts are iconic. The MSB team just launched the new permanent CBD location on St Georges Terrace (check out our snaps from the launch here). So, it is a bus ride down the hill from Tribe.
Another of my favourite lunch spots is Tiisch, up on the western end of Hay Street in the CBD. Tiisch not only have the lushest minimal decor around, but make killer matcha, coffees and meals. I haven’t had a meal at Tiisch that I didn’t love.
If you want to go all out and hit up a fine dining spot with an Australian twist, do not miss Wildflower. The rooftop restaurant offers an indigenous ethos of six seasons with farmer and forager-driven menus. Each dish I had here was more unbelievable than the last, as were the wines paired to match.
After a coffee and cake with a stunning view and place to stroll? Try Isle of Voyage in the hot spot Elizabeth Quay. Also worth visiting for a beautiful dinner.

THE COMMUNAL LOUNGE AT TRIBE HOTEL PERTH
Along with the generous sized lobby, Tribe Perth offers a communal lounge, impressive library of design, fashion and architectural books and a café and bar, TRIBE Foods. The hotel offers free Wifi throughout without any log ins. It makes for a quick and convenient place to get some work done.
BREAKFAST AT TRIBE HOTEL PERTH
The morning spread at Tribe Perth called us early, with an impressive range of continental options. As I mentioned earlier, the fresh baked goods all come care of Mary Street Bakery. The TRIBE Foods coffee bar offers excellent coffee from local roasters Mano a Mano Coffee (located at Gordon Street Garage). Also on offer were an impressive range of cereals (including gluten free and paleo options), breads, condiments, chia puddings, fried egg dishes and fruit. There was even a cheese board! You can also opt for a pressed juice if you want to start the day with your vitamins.
THE FINAL WORD ON TRIBE HOTEL PERTH
One of the many things that impressed me about Tribe Perth was the attention to detail and clever planning. It has clearly been designed with the contemporary traveller in mind. I revealed on my Instagram story how impressed I was that the beds all have storage for large and small suitcases. This is something that a number of smaller boutique hotels in Europe I have stayed in overlooked. A room seems a lot smaller when you have a couple of large cases to trip over.
The rooms are all equiped with USB ports for charging your phone and devices, free streaming of the latest movie releases and Foxtel. The bathrooms offer rain showers and Kevin Murphy products. Tribe is the first hotel in the world to boast KM. Rather than pay a huge fee for mini bar items, all items stocked in the rooms are complimentary! Finally, T2 teas and Nespresso coffee pod machines can be found in each room.
With Tribe hotels planned to open in Hobart, Adelaide and Melbourne, I am very excited to see this new boutique offering around Australia. Particularly as someone who travels to Adelaide multiple times a year! I always struggle with a contemporary Hotel to stay in, Tribe Adelaide could not be more exciting!
TRIBE HOTEL PERTH is located at: 4 Walker Avenue, West Perth WA 6005.
