                    On arrival room presented with cockroaches, damp carpet which was from a leaking hot water service which caused a musty smell. Foul smell of sewage which was caused from leaking toilet. Dishwasher not functioning properly. When reporting some of these issues and asked to move was given a smug response by an unhelpful employee. Would not stay here or recommend to anybody

                    the 9th floor apartment was great for views, space & facilities. Handy to all we needed and pick by tours was easy as the Marrakai was well known by tour guides. Other attractions were within walking distance or an easy bus ride

                    This apartment building is one of Darwin's oldest but is reasonable maintained. The building is opposite a large block of public housing and is rather noisy and surrounded by some social dysfunction. Security to building is good. We stayed in the summer and the smell of the communal garbage chute on each floor was awful! This needs to be cleaned daily in the hot weather. Carol from Australia

                    Whilst I was happy with the facilities and setup in the two bedroom apartment in which our small group stayed, the apartment itself was in need of some maintenance (eg cracked powerpoints, and walls and ceilings a tad shabby- and the outdoor portable clothes drying rack was a rusted mess...) We were there for four nights and the apartment wasnt serviced during that time but it would have been nice to have one service in the four days. The location is great, close to the enjoyable Cafe 21 and nice walks on the Esplanade. Also a 24 Hungry Jacks less than 200 metres away. The sunsets from the balcony of our 9th floor apartment were stunning. Would stay there again if the price was right.

                    On arrival room presented with cockroaches, damp carpet which was from a leaking hot water service which caused a musty smell. Foul smell of sewage which was caused from leaking toilet. Dishwasher not functioning properly. When reporting some of these issues and asked to move was given a smug response by an unhelpful employee. Would not stay here or recommend to anybody

                    This apartment building is one of Darwin's oldest but is reasonable maintained. The building is opposite a large block of public housing and is rather noisy and surrounded by some social dysfunction. Security to building is good. We stayed in the summer and the smell of the communal garbage chute on each floor was awful! This needs to be cleaned daily in the hot weather. Carol from Australia

                    Whilst I was happy with the facilities and setup in the two bedroom apartment in which our small group stayed, the apartment itself was in need of some maintenance (eg cracked powerpoints, and walls and ceilings a tad shabby- and the outdoor portable clothes drying rack was a rusted mess...) We were there for four nights and the apartment wasnt serviced during that time but it would have been nice to have one service in the four days. The location is great, close to the enjoyable Cafe 21 and nice walks on the Esplanade. Also a 24 Hungry Jacks less than 200 metres away. The sunsets from the balcony of our 9th floor apartment were stunning. Would stay there again if the price was right.
