Room was clean, breakfast simple and easily accessible to the most locations. The staffers very helpful. Kitchen for use by guests was convenient. The computer for guest use was good. But no free wifi.

Stayed here 2 nights. Nice clean room and a comfy bed. Quiet location. Breakfast was nothing fancy - cheap bread some jam or cereal and remember to clean the dishes after u finish. It was a mix of a motel and backpackers where u could cool your own stuff. Pool is nothing to brag about. I'm sure there better places... More

Balinese motel is in one of the best locations in Cairns. Beautiful Esplanade is just across the road, City centre is only 15 mins walk or 5 mins bus trip form here. Cairns Airport is also 15 mins taxi ride away from here. All Tour operators pick up and drop off guests from and to Balinese motel. Public transport bus... More

Checked in by a Philippina with a ponytail. She demanded that I pay in cash then give $100 deposit. We counted out the money and I only had 90 for the deposit and I wrote it down on the check in paper. When I checked out, I only received 85 not 90. Arguing ensued. The woman who checked me out...

It will definitely be my go to hotel next time I'm in Cairns. It's in a nice quite location so I slept really well and I liked that there is a security door to the hotel which... More

If you need a clean, quiet motel unit with breakfast included ( continental) then this motel, a short walk from Cairns Central , is ideal. I stayed for 5 nights whilst doing day trips and found it very suitable.

I found the The Balinese on the web as we only needed somewhere to sleep and it was cheap and handy to town. The service was good, the free breakfast was basic,the unit was clean & tidy. I would happily recommend.

The light bulbs are such a low wattage that its impossible to even read in bed at night with every light on! I have given much better looking lamps to lifeline. The bathroom exhaust fan sounds like a jet plane taking off and having the only mirror in the place, you have to suffer this noise throughout shower and make-up... More
