Blatant overuse of the star system. One star at best. Mediocre and dirty rooms, high prices (for what you get). And the rudest staff if you complain. Don't be fooled Go somewhere else. Anywhere else! This has to be the worst place I have stayed anywhere in the world, and I thought I had stayed in some baddies. Worthy of... More

We arrived after a long flight to a dirty room full of German cockroaches. When raised with the staff member he was most unhelpful. Refused to action a refund then and there as it was late at night and needed his manager. Then refused to document we gave him one of the cockroaches we caught. When I took a photo... More

We picked Luma Luma because of the 'kitchen facilities' to try and save some money by cooking breaky ect. Little did we know that their idea of facilities was an old rusted out camping electric stove which looked like it would burn down the room if we turned it on. Our room didn't seem to have been 'maintained' in an... More

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.

I was returning from Katherine prior to V8 weekend so rooms were not available at the usual place I stay at so spent 1 night at Luma Luma. 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
