“Convenient location, quiet environment, comfortable!”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

I came to Cairns for a conference at the Cairns Convention Centre in August 2012. Booked Il Centro Apartments because of its proximity to the conference venue. Have stayed a total of 10 nights as I stayed on as a tourist after the event. The location is fantastic, close to everything but not in the middle of the noisy town and bars etc. I had a room facing the street front, but never heard any traffic noise at all. I am a light sleeper and I did not hear any noise from the street or next door.

The apartment itself has a good size sitting room, separate bedroom, bathroom, fully equipped kitchen (enough for simple breakfast and the occasional instant noodle), washing machine and clothes dryer. There is a large Woolworths supermarket a few blocks away. The room was serviced daily. Just so convenient. Staff (Russell and Warren) were friendly and helpful.

There are lots of good restaurants nearby. I probably have put on a few kilos from all the great food. All in all, I love Il Centro. Highly recommend this place. The bed was very comfortable too, which is very important.

Just had a an excellent week at the Il centro apartments. Staff very friendly and go out of their way to help. Great value for money and very central. Thanks Warren and the team! Would highly recommend for business or pleasure.

We came here for a convention and this hotel was perfect location. Eating out was expensive so having a kitchen was fantastic! The rooms are not very soundproof so if you are a light sleeper this may be a problem. We had dependable wifi too which is hard to come by around here.

If you are after a fresh, clean & affordable apartment to stay in Cairn city centre, I would highly recommend you do NOT stay at Il Centro Apartments. The rooms are very tired & did not appear to have had a decent upgrade for at least a decade..below are some examples..

- The rooms have a very pungent smell, similar to dirty, musty carpet. To give you some idea, we had keep the balcony doors open all night to ensure the room had enough fresh/clean air.
- The air ventilation system was not functioning correctly and the reception guy had to explain some work around to make it operational.
- The bottom left-hand corner of the bar fridge was covered in mould
- The pool was very very small and boxy...which is quite different to what we through looking at the pictures on the web.
- It appears some major construction is about to start just opposite the apartments. This resulted in a large amount of noise after 7am each morning.

Room Tip: Sheridan St is very busy, so a room facing the pool which would better

I stayed in this place a few times over past 7 years. I was always happy with location and service. Rooms were comfortable and had all that was needed for a comfortable living. My last stay was different from the previous. It was very unpleasantly affected by the receptionist guy named Cameron or Camran, I think (the one with a goatish beard). He was impossible. Once he opened his mouth nothing could stop him (I was kept for half an hour and he would probably kept going on if I did not left). He kept talking, wiring himself up, getting more and more exited. It was actually quite frightening at some point, so out of control and unstable was his behaviour. If you have any questions DO NOT ask him anything. Deal with Russell and girls at reception. They are nice, pleasant, friendly people. So, I will stay in this place in a future only if the rude receptionist will not be there.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking swim pool, not the main street and you will have a nice and quite place t...

We stayed at Il Centro for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The managers were very helpful and always cheerful. Our room was comfortable for the three of us, with our son sleeping on a rollout bed in the front room. The kitchen and appliances were sufficient for us to cook a meal when we wanted. The location was perfect for the short walk to the esplanade (3 blocks) or to Cairns Central (1 block). Il Centro is really great value for money. We come to Cairns every year and plan to use Il Centro as our base for all our trips in future.

Recently stayed at il centro.The room was nice and spotlessly clean but slightly out dated. The reception lady was exceptionaly helpful and welcoming. Gave me lots of info about cairns and stuff to do around the area.
The only downside to my stay at il centro was the man who was on reception sometimes was extremely rude and over baring. To put it bluntly he wouldn't shut up.
