Hotel's Favorite
This was our first stay in Darwin as a family and we couldn't have had a better experience at the Zen. Our room was fantastic, we had a view over the water and we were on level 13. We enjoyed the swimming pool and LOVED our time spent on the rooftop at sunset, it was beautiful. We had breakfast daily on Level 3 which was delicious, fresh and very filling. We will be booking the Zen again on our next Darwin holiday as we found everything to be fantastic.

Our 6th stay at Ramada Zen. Once again the staff were so incredibly friendly, and it was lovely to be remembered from our last visit when we went to Horizon’s Cafe for breakfast! I cannot fault anything about our stay - spacious and clean apartments with great views, fantastic pool, easy undercover parking, breakfast included when booking direct with Ramada Zen, complimentary drinks on arrival and drink vouchers for the Zen rooftop lounge. I look forward to booking our next stay!!

Zen Apartments is a reason to go to Darwin. The staff are A1 - they will do anything to can to make your stay comfortable. Darwin is very hot but the apartments have A/C in the main area and bedrooms. If you want to cool off - the pool is the place to be! The rooftop bar elucidates the owner's generosity and open-house spirit by offering something for everyone from all ages and walks of life. There are free snacks to go with your drinks, a pool table, massage chairs, kids toys and for the young at heart born in the 70s (like me) there's a space invader/ galactigar, and a frogger machine.

Exceptional Staff. Exceptional Service. Very Clean Apartments. Kitchen very well set up - very easy to cater. Washing Machine & clothes airer. Differing floor plans so check the website for your preferred apartment. Only downside is location - quite a walk to Bus Interchange and CBD. Secure parking so if you have a car this is a great option for value for a long term stay. Breakfast Great Value. Rooftop bar great fun, drinks well priced and free snacks make for a fun evening. Bar closes by 9pm so no late night disturbances.

The room has a bit of smell and the staff were not dressed appropriately for work. I was so surprised one lady claimed to be the housekeeping manager were dressed like going to a strip club. She can’t speak good english so how can she communicate. I think she needs more knowledge and training. This is the first time I saw a staff like that. And the breakfast dont have enough choices.

Strip club? You mean like the naughty maid outfit? Our team members dont dress like that, we have a much more sensible uniform consisting of logoed polo shirts and black pants/shorts. Maybe the team member came in on her day off to assist with your concerns. In any case it is not fair to our hardworking team to read such prejudiced comments. It is better to be kind and not make racist or derogratory statements about people. A review is meant to be helpful so that improvements can be made with constructive feedback.

I love staying at the Ramada suites in Darwin. As well being a modern hotel with all the things you would expect, comfortable bed, quality linen, clean, it also has a full size kitchen, combined washing machine dryer and dryer and dishwasher. The views from the balcony are amazing and a great place to enjoy or photograph approaching storms. I particularly enjoyed the 28 meter swimming pool which is fantastic for doing laps. The shallow area at the end is great for small children. We enjoyed having breakfast in the Cafe, the coffee is definitely a 10. Topping the day off with drinks on the rooftop👍 Can’t recommend this place enough

This is my 3rd stay here and it just keeps getting better! Positives: price, location, staff, free parking, breakfast, pool, room facilities, & definitely the rooftop bar with free snacks and view. Shout out to Yoga who greeted me in the Cafe each morning with a lovely smile and personalised service because he remembered my name and coffee order . The only negative is the elevator problems I've sometimes encountered. The rooms are quirky - I mean, a bedroom in a glass box lol I'll be back!!

We stayed at the Ramada Suites Zen Quarters in the second half of October for four nights and then stayed an extra night, because we enjoyed being there so much. The suite was very spacious with bedroom, bathroom, full kitchen including washing machine, dining lounge and deck. We were welcomed with a choice of complimentary drinks from the reception fridge. The breakfast vouchers were appreciated as they provided a variety of satisfying breakfasts overlooking the harbour with great tasting Gusto coffee from Seven Miles. The Rooftop Lounge was a delightful surprise with its 360 degree outdoor views of Darwin and its yummy complimentary nibbles with the purchase of a drink. What's more, the location is an easy walk to the Waterfront Precinct and CBD, and to top this off they provide an carpark. Great service, great amenities, great location.
