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 etc. It was pretty dirty but I can live with that. The sofa bed however was the worst thing I have ever seen! The mattress may as well had nails sticking out it! I have slept in some pretty bad beds over the years but this by far is the worst. I ended up using the sheets and a blanket I found in the cupboard and made a bed on the floor. It was much better then the alternative.
Thank fully the next night I was in 5 star luxury hotel in Bangkok with a King size bed and all for $85 for the night!More
