We stayed here for one night while passing through Cairns. Fairly small hotel with very pleasant suites at a reasonable price. Very clean and well-maintained. Excellent location in the middle of downtown Cairns, close to the esplanade, next door to the night market, and very close to many restaurants and shops. Hotel is built around a central courtyard, and looks like something you would encounter in Spain or Italy. Our suite consisted of: a large bathroom with clothes washer and dryer (detergent $1 at reception but machines are free to use); a separate bedroom with comfortable double bed and plenty of storage; a well-equipped kitchen with a large fridge; large living/dining room with TV, couch and dining table and chairs; balcony. There is a pool in the hotel, but two blocks away is the free saltwater pool on the esplanade. This would be a very good base for exploring Cairns and taking day trips to the reef or other locations. Plenty of parking if you have a rental vehicle. Overall excellent value for money, especially if you are planning to stay for a few days.
