Darwin Central Hotel

Reviewed February 26, 2014

Have travelled to Darwin over 5 times in the last 2 years as our daughter is up there training to be a paramedic. Have always stayed at Darwin Central as it's reasonably priced, always clean and tidy and in a fabulous location.

Room Tip: Ask for the 7th floor as it's a lot quieter. The restaurant noise is heard on the lower levels.

We stayed here for 2 weeks while looking for long term accomodation. Room (703) was spacious with 2 queen beds and plenty of space to put our bags out of the way. Location is excellent, close to restaurants and bars, and to Coles as well. The Post Office, Banks and RSL are also close by and the waterfront is an easy 10 minute walk. Parking on the street behind the hotel (where MacDonalds is) is free at weekends (limited to 2 hours Sat am) and from 5pm to 8am weekdays. Staff were very efficient and always a smile and the housekeeping staff also do an excellent job. There is a laundry room with 4 washers and 4 dryers - $4 per wash and $4 for an hour in the dryer. Overall we were very pleased with our stay here and would recommend it if you want a central location, a quiet space and attentive staff.

I stay at the Darwin Central on average around four times per year with an avrage stay of 5 nights per visit.

The staff are friendly, courteous and efficient and loyalty is rewarded.

It is true that Wi Fi is not available, if it were, the Darwin Central Hotel would tick every box.

I stayed here on a business trip for three days and chose this hotel due to its good reviews and location.

The location is excellent, right in the centre of Darwin and close walk to bars and restaurants. There is no on-street parking in the CBD so you have to use the hotel's valet parking which is $17 per day but they have a car park beneath the hotel so you don't have a long wait for your car.

Hotel staff very friendly, rooms are large, well appointed and clean and give you everything you want incl. tea and coffee facilities and ironing board.

WiFi was a shame given I was here on business and you have to pay for this but I brought my own WiFi dongle so ok for me but it would be nice if they could at least provide free WiFi in the public areas on the ground floor.

All in all the hotel is basic but gives you what you need and I would stay here again.

Nice and quiet stay , this is clearly important, but do not ask to be connected! I was charged 66 Aud just to dream about a normal wi-fi. Room was clean, service ok, centrally located but if somebody needs to keep on connected to the world..this is not your stay.

We stayed for 4 nights. The reception staff are really friendly and efficient. The rooms are large and well appointed. The location is great for easy walking to restaurants and other facilities. We had 2 early morning tours and the hotel packed us very good take away breakfast packs which were ready on time. Can truly recommend this top class establishment.

My Son and I delivered two new buses to Darwin last Friday afternoon. We were booked on the 1.00am flight back to Brisbane and needed a base for a few hours prior to flying out. My wife discovered the Darwin Central Hotel on the web and booked us a double room. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the Assistant Manager and our room was allocated in no time at all. The room was quite large with two queen beds and a large shower which was a total surprise to us both. After a short stroll to the main street for a couple of drinks and dinner we returned to the Hotel to shower and relax. It was two very reluctant people who had to leave those enticing queen beds behind at 11.00pm to go to the airport. Hopefully we can stay overnight when next in Darwin. A great Hotel in an excellent location with cheerful front desk staff. Unlike traveller5605 who returned to the Hotel to escape some rain we were much less fortunate, heard the rain approaching but couldn't run fast enough and experienced a total drenching from one of Darwin's Monsoonal storms. We could only laugh at our own misfortune!
