“Lovely staff and good night's sleep”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Bohemia Resort is a bit of a walk north of the cbd, but well within walking distance. There are buses along Sheridan St frequently if you have heavy bags of fruit you got at Rustys Market. Most of the tours leaving Cairns will pick you up. Best thing about it is that it is quiet, so I had a good night's sleep every night I was here. It's not flash or upmarket, but good value and my room had everything I needed. Staff are friendly and helpful.

I didn't have any meals here, and breakfast was minimal. Don't like my tea out of a polystyrene beaker. Didn't waste my time after the first morning. You can get very good organic Musli and fresh tropical fruits on corner of James and McLeod streets. There are shared kitchen facilities. There are lots of takeaway places within easy walking distance for dinner.

Very helpful staff accommodating our group, even willing to help with organising meals for their stay.
Good value for money & useful facilities.
Would recommend for large groups or people traveling on a budget.

We had an overnight stay here on our way to Airport next morning. The Bohemia offers hostel type rooms and motel rooms. We stayed in a queen sized room with ensuite, balcony, aircon & fridge. Rates were excellent!! We met some old friends for dinner, but made the mistake of having dinner at Bohemia. Prices were very cheap, but serves were very small and food was poor (and very bland). Breakfast next morning at $5 each was basic but good. Would stay again! We had no noise issues here, and all in all (except for dinner) a very pleasant stay.

I always try and write a good review for other backpackers. Unfortunately on this place I can't, it is cheap, but we had to pay for taxis because it rained one day and it's over half an hour walk to the city, and don't walk back in the dark, it's unsafe. Our room was crawling with bugs big and small, every morning we had new bites! There is free wifi and the pools nice but so not worth it! In the slightest.

Room Tip: The toilets had no toilet roll and were grubby, if you stay get an ensuite.

Great stay there. Free wifi, free pool table, and swimming pool. Air con in rooms, big kitchen area (missing some cooking tools). Private room was big with tv, fridge and sink. A little laxed on hallway floor cleanliness but the choice of floor tile is to blame. All in all pretty good deal if your willing to walk 20 - 30 mins to town.
