“Worth a try”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

I was a little concerned initially over the mixed reviews of H Hotel on Tripadvisor but our stay went without a glitch. Rates are expensive compared to where we've been, but we've come to realise are quite the norm in Darwin. Room was spacious, the bathroom worked well and the location tops (we walked everywhere - down to Stokes HIll, the Deckchair Cinema, the main shops along Mitchell and Woolworths). Front desk also managed to arrange for a earlier check in after a rather frazzled overnight flight which was definitely appreciated!

This was by far the best city accommodation close to everything and I could use the pool (heated)
Staff were excellent even though the wait staff were mostly french and English they outshone the aussie lady there !!!
Clean and comfortable

Room Tip: We chose a spa suite well worth it

Whether you're stopping in Darwin for one night or staying longer term the H Hotel is a great choice. The rooms are clean and comfortable, although the position of the aircon units means they blow in your face if you leave them on overnight. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is within walking distance of everything in town, from the casino to the cruise ship terminal. But best of all must be the breakfast. At 5am you would meet lots of fly-in, fly-out workers, tucking into a hearty plate of bacon and eggs from the buffet and making-up their packed lunches from the supplies provided. From 6am to 10am the restaurant area is quieter but the cooked breakfast variety remains available. It does have a bit of an appearance of school dinners but if you're planning a long day travelling and feel like loading up on bacon, eggs, sausage, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, hash browns, toast, OJ and gallons of fresh brewed coffee then this has to be one of the best brekkies in the world. There is also a healthy selection of muesli, fruit and the like, although I was a tad confused by the breakfast calamari.

Good: bed, decor, very large closet(why?)free carparking
Average: bathroom very small, no bath. Room pretty small with standard stuff.Not many channels on TV. No chair for the desk (for using comp or writing)
Poor: air con directly over bed which means you are blasted with cold air or in a stuffy room. Remote control too complicated and I never really got the air con to work as I wanted. Air con noisy.
No FREE wifi; they advertise wifi, but its not free.
They also advertise a guest laundry, but you have to go through reception and they charge $1.00 per item regardless of size. Only available some of the time.
Terrible: Evening buffet. We got there at 8 and it is open until 9. The food was all cooked and presented at 6 and not topped up. So the meat was dried out and cold and there were only 2 (two!) prawns left, and 6 mussels. Very boring selection. Waitresses more concerned with setting up for breakfast than serving.
Breakfast buffet not much better, hot food was all cold, but a good selection.
Worst: tried to overcharge me by $30 for extra wine and mini bar stuff.
This is a new Hotel and looks very attractive, but you should be able to get a bed elsewhere for less. Just a bog standard bed and bathroom really.

Room Tip: Try a different hotel?

Very friendly, helpful staff. Room, compared to my experience of Aussie hotels, was of a high standard: spacious, clean and well appointed. Didn't sample the restaurant. Hotel is handy to most places. Con: charge for wifi. Would stay again.

The hotel is of a good standard, but the staff are terrible a smile would be nice and they all appear dis interested and bored, for the cost you would be better off on the esplanade, better location and better price.
