“Odd little setup”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012

The room was clean and comfortable, just as advertised. Don't expect the whole building to be the hotel, it seems that fnq have several rooms in the building. Michael met me and was very pleasant, explained everything well. Although its an odd little setup, it did the job quite well.

Don't judge the apartments by the building! The room was very very clean! Newly renovated including brand new aircon. The balcony overlooks the pool of which doesn't appear too appealing but the pool is well looked after and exceptionally clean.
Because the office isn't where the apartments are you need to let Michael know a day before when you'll be arriving so he can take you to your room. Apon arrival Michael greeted us and was very helpful getting us settled in, he went out of his way to make sure we were happy.
It's only a 15min walk to the shops and Esplanard.

Me & my partner stayed here in July 2012 for 4 nights. Upon arriving (at 4am) we looked up from the pavement to see a run down scruffy looking high rise building. Our hearts sank and panic set in...”are we at the right place?!”. Our flight had arrived earlier than planned so we had to hang around for a couple of hours - make sure you let staff know if you are going to arrive outside of reception opening hours or you will be stranded like us! We hadn't realised the owner of the FNQ studios was not the same owner as the Sunshine Towers, once he arrived he took us up to our room - which was nothing less than GORGEOUS. Ultra clean, ultra modern & ultra comfortable. A total surprise after taking in the outside of the building – just goes to show you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover! The room was spacious, bright and came equipped with everything you can think of; from bottle openers to bread knives, Ipads to body butter! The balcony came with its own BBQ (additional charge but worth it in our opinion), the bathroom was modern and spotless, plenty of towels & robes for you to use. Bed was large to say the least & probably the comfiest bed I’ve ever slept in....including my own! Location was probably the only negative, was about a 10-15 min walk into the centre of Cairns – other than that a fab stay! Would certainly recommend!

We strongly appreciate you comments of the hotel and that your second impression of our services and the design of the rooms enlivened your experiences during your stay. Furthermore since your visit the hotel has undergone renovations both inside and on the outside of the building common areas to bring the hotel back to its original condition therefore your next stay will be more pleasurable.

Once again thank you for your comments.

Booked this thru Mystery deal on Wot if.com.Very disappointing.We were placed in a room at the back by the laundry which was very noisy.Got very little sleep.No view at all.People coming and going at all hours of the day and night.Witnessed several elderly men with asian partners(i suspect doing business at the hotel)
Would not stay here again!!!

My one night stay at the FNQ studio boutique hotel was fantastic. Michael, the owner, is just lovely and offered me great help in finding the best tour operator for snorkelling trips to the Great Barrier Reef. He even made it possible to check in at 6:45am which allowed me to get to the reef very early in the morning. Thanks for this fabulous experience in Cairns!
