We stayed at Il Palazzo for three nights to explore Cairns and the surrounding area. We opted for the unserviced package as we were able to wash and dry our towels each evening and as the apartment was spacious it was easy to keep clean and tidy. The location was great, very close to restaurants and bars and a two... More

This was Our introduction to an apartment hotel. Couldn't have been better. Central to shopping and cbd, extraordinary layout with bedroom away from noise and kitchenand living room. Washer/dryer combo worked well. Friendly staff that allowed us to check in at 8 am after an all night flight. Clean, comfortable, modern and a true home away from home. Wish we... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the accommodation here. The rooms were huge, the furniture and fittings up to date and the place was spotless. Staff were friendly and helpful, free car parking and right in the heart of town. What more could you ask for!

Perfect little hotel. The location of this hotel is simply superb. You cant go wrong with that at all. All the major attractions is an easy walk. The staff are really helpful and friendly. Don, Frances and Caroline at the reception were an absolute delight. They gave us directions on where to go, what to see, etc. Don even gave... More

The Il Palazzzo Boutique Hotel is directly in the center of the central business district of Cairns. A short walk from the restaurants, tour agencies, and the Reef Terminal for day trips to the reef. But it is far more than the location that should draw you here. No tour groups...no huge impersonal hotel...no impersonal management. This is a small... More

Very good rooms. Very spacious. Wifi had intermittent disconnects but worked most of the time. It is located on a prime location. 15 - 20 mins from airport (by car), 2 mins walk to Esplanade, Night Mall is the next building, Marlin Marina is 10 mins walk. Full of restaurants around it. Very nice and courteous staff. Will never even... More

Il palazzo lived up to the previous reviews. Couldn't fault the accomodation or location at all. It had everything we needed and was very clean, bed very comfortable and very quiet at night. Excellent value and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Our group of 15 found a gem. The location is perfect to food, shops, stores and a short walk to the pier; rooms spacious, clean, equipped with washer and dryer and there is an inviting pool. Donovan, Kay and Frances were exceptional and helpful hosts. You might even consider their help in planning and arranging excursions to the outer reefs... More

The hotel is located one block off the Esplanade, which put us near to all the action. The hotel is small and the proprietors on site, so the service is friendly and personal- no chain hotel impersonality here. The rooms are small suites with a petite kitchen, sitting room and a separate bedroom. The air conditioning is very efficient and... More

On the positive side the hotel is very well located, one block from the Esplanade. Also the room was clean and quiet with the bedroom away from the front. The staff is friendly and helpful. Cons: the decor is very dated and the free inroom wifi was extremely slow.

Ilpalazzo, Front Office Manager at Il Palazzo Boutique Apartments Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your very positive review of Il Palazzo - it is always appreciated when guests go to the trouble of writing a review as it is so helpful for potential guests. Although you found the décor to be somewhat dated, it is in fact a typical Italian style of décor. The new National Broadband Network is currently being... More
