the hotel is close to main street and you can walk everywher. Nightlife is very close and also you can go to the waterfront. Nice city to stay for two days. The pub Shennagan is a nice place to go. We also went to the night market.

We have just stayed at Darwin Central and were very pleased with the room and the location. The rooms are very clean with a great shower, the location is very central to most attractions within the city and the breakfast was more than adequate with a fully cooked breakfast available on all mornings. I would recommend this hotel.

Situated right in the heart of the city, with shopping malls across the road. A spacious atrium styled hotel, with a good pool. The rooms were a good size, very clean and very quiet, Although I had a room to myself it still had 2 double beds in it, with the most comfy mattress and wonderful pillows, I had such... More

This was a fantastic central hotel to stay at in Darwin. Modern rooms with great bathrooms. They were happy to store my luggage and then help me with an early checkin. They were also able to book the airport shuttle for me. Great place to stay.

Darwin Central is the 'go'! if ever required to fly up and stay in town, I'd stay at the same... More

However I was pleasantly surprised. The top (seventh) floor room with 2 queen beds was modern, spacious,... More

This hotel is very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Situated in the middle of Darwin City. We would definitely stay here again. McDonald's down stairs and close to Mitchell Street which is the main Night Club street in DTown.
