I booked into the Il Centro for a one night stay for work in April 2014. On being dropped off by the taxi at the entrance, I was a little hesitant as the façade was less than impressive. I was met at the door by the manager and staff who were very jovial and polite. After checking in which was a very easy process, I was led to my room. Immediately upon getting out of the lift it was like I was in a different place, there were palm trees inside the courtyard hidden from the hustle and bustle of the exterior. The room was massive, I had a one bedroom apartment which was close to the largest one I have had. There was a slight musky smell (which many tropical north rooms have) but opening the window cleared that pretty quickly.
Overall this place is highly recommended. It is a little dated, but is superbly located for the convention centre. The only reason this stay didn't receive 5 stars is a couple of very minor maintenance issues. I have stayed in places an awful lot more expensive that this in Cairns but will make this my next stop guaranteed.
