Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My Son and I stayed at the Luma Luma Apartments for 5 nights. I found the Reception Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help and assist you. However the room and house keeping was below standard. The shower screen was not firmly fitted and the kitchen taps creaked every time they were opened. The House Keeping was lot to be desired. Our towels were changed only once. The rubbish bin was not emptied everyday. There were no clothes or sponges provided to clean the basin top in the bathroom or the kitchen top.

One of the worst experiences in a hotel anywhere in the world We booked a deluxe 2 bedroom apartment, we given 2 separate rooms (rooms 505 and 506), which according to the manager is what we booked, totally different to their web page Room 505 NO TV, NO Chairs No tea or coffee making facilities We ended up moving out of the "deluxe" apartment into 2 standard rooms at a additional cost to US of $200 per night for 8 nights Had us over a barrel, no other accommodation available in Darwin. Sorry no way could I recommend Luma Luma

This place is located in the heart of city! 10min walk to all eateries, pubs! Rooms are clean and spacey cafe located under motel best coffee n pies in town. Central to all your needs. Great pool area to unwind on hot days. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Carpark is a bit small but bonus it is undercover and protected. Quiet location.

While our stay at Luma Luma wasn’t at the height of luxury, it suited us well. We were on a budget and needed somewhere comfortable to stay. We were confronted by the Darwin heat when we arrived, but the fan and air conditioner in the room helped keep us cool and relaxed. The Luma Luma apartments are well situated in the Darwin CBD, within walking distance of many amenities, landmarks and restaurants. The beds are really comfortable, and we enjoyed and deep sleep every night. Sheets and towels are able to be changed daily. There’s a communal pool and BBQ area available, and I enjoyed my swim. Wifi was only available in the reception area, which wasn’t a problem for us, but may be for others. There were no recycling facilities available in the room, and they may want to rethink their daily use of plastic bags. The fridge froze our milk, butter, fruit, veggies and juice, and may need defrosting. The hot plates looked dodgy, but worked well. A dirty, used sponge was left under the sink for washing up. We had to buy our own. The TV accessed local channels. Smart TV access would’ve been great. A queen and a single bed have been crammed into the room, but the bed head attached to the wall had not been shifted to accomodate this change, and is just floating randomly on the wall. Laundry facilities are available for a small fee. I would recommend Luma Luma to those who need kitchen facilities on their stay (we saved a lot from not buying breakfast) and for those on a budget. If you’re not phased by minor issues like us, this is a great option for you.

We ended up at Luma Luma after our accomodation was unavailble due to maintence issue coming into school holidays. To be honest, I cried that we could only get into Luma Luma but was pleasantly surprised. It is very honest accomodation with very friendly staff. It was great to get the room cleaned everyday, which is not normal for apartment accomodation. Solid walls, so very quiet with the windows closed. Lots of fridges which was really helpful. The pool was nice but quite cold at this time of year. Great location.

Hi Kira, In the wet season, this could be an issue but we strive our best to keep on top of this with regular pest treatment. We only wished you could have brought this to our attention straight _ we would have immediately rectified it for you. We haven't had this issue for a long time. We take pride in room cleanliness at all times and hope we can make it up to you should you choose to stay with us again.

I stayed for one night on the 5th floor at Luma Luma and couldn't wait to leave. The place is tired, filthy and there is no Wi-Fi in the rooms, only in reception. At night the cockroaches came out, they were everywhere and I had to move the bed for fear of them falling onto my head. They scuttled through my luggage and all over the kitchen and bathroom surfaces. The appliances were filthy and the fridge stunk the room out. The only nice thing to say about the place was the politeness of the guy in reception.

Thanks for your response, Cheryl. Unfortunately cockroaches are an issue throughout the wet season. However, at Luma Luma we strive to keep on top of this with regular pest control treatment, and will endeavour to continue this practice. We're happy to advise that we don't have too many issues of this nature in our establishment in recent times and the picture of the cockroaches you posted cannot be recognised as being from this hotel.

Stayed at Luma Luma for 4 nights and was very pleasantly surprised! The room was clean and comfortable with a good size bathroom, efficient aircon and handy balcony. The 24 hour reception made the stay enjoyable and safe. The complex is so convenient to everything in the CBD and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I'm a regular visitor to Darwin and have stayed at many of the hotels there. I'm very happy to recommend Luma Luma most highly.
