If you are expecting a 4 or 5 start hotel do not stay here. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. We stayed in the superior room which had its own bathroom and toliet was on the 2nd floor so heard not noise from outside at all. The best part about this hotel is its location which is right...

Old hotel in need of some upkeep and repairs. Room was basic, windows frosted and locked so you cant open or see put. They charge alot for internet that was so slow it was basically unusuable. Safe in room required a key, for which they also charge. Good location, but we would stay elsewhere next time.

Yes, this is a quirky, old hotel. I chose to stay here the night before a 5:30 am flight to Brisbane (I was in Port Douglas, an hour away). It has an excellent location, near so many restaurants, bars, etc. I did not have much time to explore, but did walk to the Red Ochre restaurant for dinner after I...

I stayed at Hides Hotel by myself for 2nights (Thurs and Sun nights) in their basic room with bathroom. Reception was friendly and helpful. Hotel is quite old but has been semi-renovated so it still has that old world feel, yet is clean and functional. Breakfast included toast, cereals, boiled eggs juice cordial and coffee. Only negative was group of...

My husband and I would not recommend this hotel. Of particular concern was that the poor sound proofing meant that we barely slept a wink - it was so noisy outside and there was no escape from this racket. Our room was reasonably clean but very rundown with worn and torn bedding and towels and the hallway was grimy and...

We had a great experience here - the room was clean and comfy and had everything we needed. Reception was very helpful when needed and breakfast on the terrace each morning was a nice option to have. The location is unbeatable, literally in the heart of Cairns and close to everything. I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay...

Just as the title says, the hotel was awful, the room was OK and the location was spot on. On arrival the receptionist was rude and unhelpful. It was a very unpleasant looking hotel from the outside, and from the reception. The room was a little better, 4 single beds, but, as they were on wheels during the night they...
