At first glance it looks like an art store with the statue of David in the front window..I walked past and realized it was accommodation. The owners were amazing, I explained I had arrived in Cairns early and had no hotel for that eve.. gave me a cuppa, stored my luggage while I went to a meeting. Within an hour I had a room. Fully self contained, balcony over looking the pool. Everything spotless from the stairwells,elevator every inch. The décor is so refreshingly different. The housemaids were a little chatty n noisy the hallway the first morning but was after 8.30. Considering how much pride they take in their work and were usually quiet. Set in the middle of the city I did expect the accommodation to be noisy at night, but wasn't. I would go there again just for the hotel it really felt like a boutique European hotel. Needless to say I skipped the big chain lovely resort I was booked into and stayed the whole time at Il Palazzo very pretty little place.
