“Convenient position”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2014

The Hotel is situated very close to the inner city area, very convenient for shopping and eating out. Initially we ( my friend and I wanted a twin room) were put in a room on the ground floor that was the size of a shoebox, looked out onto the undercover car park, and smelt awful. We asked for another room. The staff were very obliging, but the next room we were shown, which was also on the ground floor, smelt like the first room. We were staying 3 nights at the hotel, and both agreed that we couldn't stay in a room that smelt like that. We were prepared to go elsewhere if they couldn't find us a better room. We were then given a room on the 8th floor. It was fine, very comfortable and nice, but we had to share a bed. We didn't care by then, it was king size, so we didn't complain as we felt we'd already been enough trouble. Other than that, the hotel was very nice. We never ate there so cannot comment on the food. The staff were very helpful. All hotels in Darwin are expensive, it seemed to be a reasonable deal.

Room Tip: Ask for your room not to be on the ground floor

Great hotel. I stayed for a week for a graduation and the room was extremely clean and well stocked. Housekeepers did an excellent job every day and all staff were attentive and friendly. Breakfast was a bit expensive but very nice, and the pool is just wonderful. Perfect temperature! My only complaint was that housekeepers occasionally forgot to restock sugar for tea and coffee, but it was easy enough to grab some from the breakfast bar- even at night. Extra cutlery was always brought up quickly whenever requested, and the abundance of towels for the pool was great. All up, 4 stars for the price, 5 for the staff :)

My first visit to the H Hotel was shortly after it opened in 2013 and it had some rough edges. I left a less than complimentary Trip Advisor review and was surprised to receive a response from the manager - Fabrice Grau. He promised me a better stay if I were to give the H Hotel another try and that was the case when I stayed overnight last night. Upgraded room, good amenities, great breakfast and a complimentary late check out. Ticks all 'round. The only reason H Hotel doesn't get 5 stars is that it remains a utilitarian hotel - there's nothing luxurious about it - but it is perfectly comfortable and all the staff I encountered were friendly and accommodating. Well done H Hotel and thank you Fabrice - see you again soon !!!

This is a clean hotel in a central location. Car parking is under cover which is great as it gets pretty hot in Darwin. Staff were generally very good, just check you get the room type booked rather something else. Also suggest the the highe floor levels which have some views at least. Did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment on food or restauarant.

Room Tip: Higher floor levels have some views
