Not a bad location for the city centre, fairly standard room, check in / out was simple, however there was no ambiance whatsoever. I didn't see a restaurant and wasn't advised of one in the hotel. though there are plenty of eating places around.

Thanks very much for taking the time to leave a review for us after your stay, it's always helpful for us to learn what our guests think about their experience with us. You are not the first to mention that there is no restaurant within Advance Apartments. This is of course true, however we do have a number of local...

Very central location. Near woolies and close to lots of restaurants and places to go out. The only thing that would have improved my stay is if they vacuumed every second or third day. We have a messy eater and the carpet ended up being filthy, with only a dust pan and brush to clean it up with. Also, not...

I stayed here for one night business trip. Check in was very efficient and staff were super nice and helpful. The room was very basic with quite uncomfortable bed I was getting the noise from the main street during night and was woken up by the baby and people next door. I could clearly hear the husband asking his wife...

Stayed here for about 5 days. Maybe there weren't a lot of people on our floor, as we didn't find it noisy at all. Spacious apartment - plenty of room for us to pile our camping stuff in the corner behind the dining table. Bathroom amenities clean. Shower was horrible - absolutely no pressure. Took about 20 minutes longer to...

self catering / self service type apartments. very basic, and no evening meals available. Ok cafe next door for breakfast / lunch, however you will need to walk to cafe / hotel strip. Bed was comfortable, however room and corridors noisy, paper thin walls. Staff helpful. Well located just of the main entertainment precinct. Not recommended for business travel.

My wife and I stayed here on 2 separate visits recently. Check in was uneventful though a misunderstanding due to recent change in ownership led to some discussion re the inclusion of 'free parking' that can attract a charge of $10 per day. All sorted and checked in to our spacious apartment style set up with kitchette, bathroom, lounge/dining, bedroom...

Easy going staff, no frills no problems just simple but functional rooms. Could be seen as expensive if your by yourself but sharing, no problem at all. The rooms vary from having an ensuite to a shared main bathroom. I wasnt sure if the price changed between the two nights or not

The reception and housekeeping staff were professional and of course friendly. The 2-bed apartment extremely comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend Advance Serviced Apartments. I appreciated the box of Belgian chocolates and welcome card in the apartment on my arrival after the flight from Sydney!

I have worked as a consultant anthropologist for the last twenty years, and it that role have travelled to most parts of remote Australia, including many visits to the Northern Territory, and for several years my preferred accommodation in Darwin has been the Quest Apartments in Cavenagh St. I flew in from Queensland yesterday to find that they had changed...

I really struggled to choose where to stay in Darwin prior to my visit and after seeing some of the other places I had looked at I was glad I stayed here. Overall my stay was comfortable but there were a few things that I found not so good. The room had everything I needed for my 4 night stay...
