I was worried about staying in Luma Luma after reading some bad reviews, so my expectations were low when we got there. I will say that it was better than I hoped, clean enough, and pretty reasonable rates. Main upside was the killer view from our balcony. The guy at the front desk tried his best to help (even though... More

Booked a one-night stay on Wotif 9 weeks before a planned trip to Darwin and it was the best price. Located in a fantastic central part of Darwin, within easy walking distance to the Esplanade, waterfront and historical precinct, local sights, downtown cafes and shops. A 3-4km walk from MIndil Markets with the bus terminal virtually at the door. It... More

A one night stay was enough. This hotel could be terrific if only the owner/ management would spend money on renovating the rooms. Great location - terrific top floor room with good breeze from the balcony, but while the good sized bedroom with an en suite bathroom were just ok the room looked tired run down and the ceiling fan...

I booked this accommodation and THEN read the Trip Advisor reviews. I was worried about staying at Luma Luma to such an extent that I took my own sleeping bag so I could get a decent night's sleep. The reception was friendly, the room was clean (not spotless, but clean), the facilities were a little dated but still highly functional.... More

We have stayed here before, and it was not bad. This time we booked and suite for 4 people we had family coming. The second room the air conditioner did not work, and you could see the cleaning staff knew about it as they left the window open. We did report it, and the staff were great, but as they... More

This case is exception, last time I stayed there was OKish, I recommended it to my backpacking niece who had a less than good experience. They moved her to 3 rooms in 12 hours due to bad plumbing and awful smells, roaches and water leaks. I can understand the owner being unhappy with the work of the workmen but for... More

We stayed one night in May, expectations were fairly low and met. It's not that there's anything really wrong with the hotel, but things like; only one towel in room, broken cupboard handles, sliding doors tough to open, obvious wear n tear etc were off-putting. The unit was SC, but I'm not sure I'd want to spend more than a... More

After arriving late from a flight we were tired and ready to fall into bed! Upon entering our room we saw cockroaches scatter, dust an inch thick on the bed head and a hideous smell of stale curry/garlic! Needless to say, we spent the next 30 mins cleaning everything! Next was to rearrange the room! We ordered a double room... More

I am rarely so dissatisfied with a hotel that I pursue matters with the company through which it was booked, but this is an exception. We arrived in Darwin a day ahead of schedule, and in order to save a few dollars (it was $30 cheaper than Double Tree by Hilton Esplanade) we booked in here. Being excessively tired from... More
