Darwin Central Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

they were responsive and worked to combine a separate reservation with this so we did not have to move. You can walk to all the city's sites. We had an awesome view of the ocean.. THe pool was perfect temperature and perfect for pool exercises. The staff was very helpful. It is the ultimate location in Darwin. The room was spacious and comfortable for us. We were thrilled. PS we've already told friends that if they go here, they have to stay at the Central

The hotel is nice, it's aging a bit and it's a bit pricey, but I think compared with the rest of Darwin it represents good value. The real killer is the cost of internet (over $10 an hour) and that at the time I was there Wifi wasn't working with Apple products. There's a washer and dryer for $4/each. Breakfast is filling with a lot of options. The staff was helpful. They stored our bags and gave us 30 minutes extra for a late check-out.

Good hotel, good service, well located at a reasonable price taking into account the costs in Australia and the region. Recomend it!!!

Central location, clean, and modern,

21 Knuckey Street Darwin NT
