We stayed at Darwin Central hotel a week ago. After a 3.5 week break in the Netherlands without my boyfriend, we thought it would be nice to meet each other in Darwin and explore the NT for a few days. We had booked the Wednesday night and the Saturday night to stay at the Darwin Central hotel, and would go... More

We booked this as we wanted something affordable and better then a backpackers. The room was simple and exactly what we needed. The staff we helpful and booked a taxi for me.

The hotel is definitely central and despite feeling like a hospital seemed quite nice. My gripe is the service we received when we asked if we could leave our bags in the hotel while we went on a three day tour. We were even returning afterwards for another night in the hotel. The answer was that they could keep it... More

My husband and I spent two night at Darwin Central. Close to shops, bars and places to eat. Staff were very polite. Room was spacious and very clean, bathroom was huge, beds were comfy. We were able to store our bags on checkout for the day which was very handy. Would definitely stay here again.

Had a very enjoyable stay here, the rooms are spacious, I had a corner room with views over the street opposite a Mall and small park. There was a cafe on the corner where I ate most days, as the meals were excellent, with a very wide choice. I enjoyed the proximity to the shops etc...When I go back to... More

My husband and I stayed for three nights at Darwin Central and have no complaints. Wanted something central where we could just walk everywhere and it was perfect... close to the eateries, bars, wharf, etc. We were a little worried that we wouldn't get to sleep as we were so close to the nightlife and bars however, we never heard...

Recently spent 5 nights at Darwin Central Hotel and really can't complain. My room was large and clean, I found the staff helpful, and the noise from Mitchell Street wasn't too disturbing. Breakfast was good and although the wi-fi is not free at $2 per 24 hours I don't have an issue with it. The only downside is that the... More

Positive - location was great. Close to heaps of restaurants, bars, waterfront, shopping and tourist attractions all within walking distance. Our room was large and clean. Very comfortable. Negative- check in and check out is very slow. Have to pay for parking.

We stayed here for 8 nights and found our stay to be very comfortable with good size rooms. It was a little noisy on the Friday and Saturday night being across from a night club but to be expected when staying in the centre of the city. Walking distance to all the shops.
