We stayed here as a family and we found the family room very spacious. For being in the centre of town very quiet and you of course were 2 minutes from the mall, Mitchell's street and all you wanted to see in town. The price was good value for Darwin which is very expensive in peak season. The rooms were... More

Located in the centre of the CBD the site is within easy walking distance to restaurants and City shopping. Valet car parking is available and all hotel staff were friendly and very prompt attending to our needs. The room was very clean and spacious, beds comfortable, with bathrooms appearing newly finished with high range complimentary soaps, shampoo's and lotions.

My wife and I stayed one night here and the room was comfortable and provided everything w needed. Whilst it was a little worn around the edges it wasn't rundown by any means. The Staff were very pleasant and most helpful. We can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there. The Wi-Fi wasn't the best but we've had... More

A very convenient location as we were able to walk to places we had to visit. Room was fantastic, staff were excellent ............ food was good and reasonably priced. Only complaint I... More

We stayed for a few days and extended for a couple more. Given the very central location of the hotel, it really assisted on every front... close to supermarket; across the road from the mall; cafe's all around; easy access to banks, restaurant's etc. Room was very clean and sheets were always white and crisp. Access to wifi for a... More

Location is very close to the party strip on Mitchell st and staff were friendly and helpful, too bad the AC was freezing and couldn't be adjusted in room. Felt weird using a blanket when it was 25 deg C over night. The rooms were very clean.

Nice place to stay. Room was big and very clean. Equipment and facilities are perfect. The only negative point was the wall outside the window for all the studio (we visited others and it was the same). So we had to let the light on during the day. Otherwise, everything was fine and the staff really nice.

The hotel is in the CBD, walking distance from many attractions and convenient to bus stops. The breakfast provided is good and the room in which it is served is pleasant. Service is cheerful, the rooms of a reasonable size and well appointed. The provision of a guest laundry is a bonus for these travelling in from red dirt areas.... More

We spent our first night at the Darwin Central Hotel. It's well located, clean and the staff was friendly. When we arrived, only a single staff person was available to help with car, registration, etc. She did the best she could with other guests hovering. We were given a cart to take our bags to our room. Remember, Darwin is... More

I spent a night here before travelling on The Ghan with family members, and would recommend it. While it doesn't have water views, it is only a few minutes walk from the front and well placed to explore central Darwin. My room was large, clean, quiet and reasonable value. The only downside was that the window faced a metal screen... More
