Very impressed with the Alatai Apartments. Spacious room and ensuite and nicely decorated too. The pool area was roomy and the pool it self was fantastic. Still close to the centre of Darwin. But way too hot to walk it. The restaurant above the reception area is run seperately. Must say it was the worst thai I have ever eaten.... More

Clean apartments overlooking the pool at the front door. Own little balcony. Towels changed daily. Friendly staff and quiet place. Close to CBD, Mindil Markets and only short drive to main shopping centres. Plenty of parking.

Woken up at 4am Saturday morning to a construction site across the road pouring concrete, staff were aware of this happening but did not tell us on check-in, ants in the room, thin blankets (more like towels), basic facilities.

Fresh, clean and comfortable from the moment we walked in the room. Staff were well mannered and we were made to feel welcome for our entire stay. Spacious and staff were accommodating when we required a ground floor room. Ensuite and laundry facilities were in the room. Good to have a decent size fridge. The city centre is within walking...

Stayed here for a week in June and probably wouldn't choose it again, unless there are some repairs done. The whole place looks like it needs a little love and care, and inside the rooms, they could do with a coat of paint, if only to get rid of the cigarette smell...it is a non-smoking hotel, but it wasn't always...

A friend and I booked a last minute apartment with Alatai for a night and it was great. Close to the city, yet somewhat quiet and private as well. A good last minute booking yet we still managed to spare an entire apartment with two rooms to ourselves which we thought was good. We went out that night till late... More

We stayed here as an 'extended' family. We had two, two bedroom apartments. Upon first inspection, one of our rooms ( Room 105) had a leaking air con that flooded the carpet in the bedroom and smelt damp. Fortunately, reception moved our family members to 106 which although didn't have wet carpet smelt of cigerette smoke and damp. Otherwise our... More

Think twice before you book Alatai Apartments Darwin. This was our last stop on a fantastic trip from Broome to Darwin and we were expecting a lovely end to our holiday. Didn't get it!!

Way too expensive for what you get! while it is mostly clean (kitchen cleanliness is problematic with too many nooks and corners - way too "bug-friendly") what you get is not worth the price tag. pool and picnic area is quite "uninviting" Very limited opening hours of the reception, esp. on weekends Breakfast is very limited The two available internet...
