Darwin is an awful place to stay during the tourist season unless you have a lot of money to throw away. II needed a place as I had a 10 hour stop over with a separate bedroom and for $220 Luma Luma was half the price of everywhere else. The place actually wasn't that bad. Nice location, friendly check in... More

We were wary after reading the reviews here but booked this hotel because of it's price. I call it "cheap and cheerful". The staff were friendly and very helpful. It was clean but a little old. A perfect location, with air conditioned rooms and a refreshing pool! We would definitely stay here again.

It is dated but it was clean, unfortunately there was issues with the electrical & the air-conditioner didn't work after returning back to the room later in the evening, luckily a fan... More

Very comfortable and clean room with all the facilities you need, including a kitchenette. Staff were very helpful and friendly too. A lot of the reviews on here complain about the price - Darwin is expensive! Apart from staying at a backpackers I don't know of anywhere else you'll get a good size room/unit with ensuite and kitchenette, plus a... More

This place is great if you're after something cheap in the city. I couldn't fault the cleanliness or service although it's a bit dated, our room was fresh with modern furniture. Highlights... Price, location, cleanliness and service. Lowlights... No block out curtains so our room was quite lit up as it faced the main street.

Prior to my business trip to Darwin I read the reviews about this "Motel/Apartment" and must say I was expecting the worse. It was a pleasant surprise to find the place freshly painted, room clean and whilst the furnishing a little dated was serviceable. The complaints about musty smells - untrue. The complaints about stained sheets - untrue. Complaints about... More

I can honestly say I'm a pretty fussing girl and after viewing many other places to stay in Darwin, Luma was a pleasant surprise! Like I said, it's not 5 star and very very basic, but I found it to be clean, pretty well equipped, in a great location (5 min walk to the main street) and the air-conditioning was... More

I have stayed in a number of hotels in Darwin for extended periods with mixed feelings about my stay. Then, due to a shortage of accommodation in the city, I was booked into The Luma Luma Holliday Apartments. It was a stroke of luck. Yes, it could do with a face lift but the price reflects that. What the Luma... More

If I had paid a budget price for my stay in this hotel I probably wouldn't have quite so much of an issue with the facilities. Unfortunately I was paying full rates, and I left feeling ripped off. As soon as I entered my room I noticed that the chain latch securing my front door (which can be accessed by... More

These apartments are beautifully maintained in classic early 80's condition, which may be the last time anything was dont to maintain or clean the rooms, the light fittings and bathroom hardware are perfectly matched to the dated look, at least the prices are up to date - at around $190 per night they are about the same as you would...
