Arrived and had to clean shelves, wash plates and utensils and had second thoughts about using toaster. Right next to train tracks, Train runs twice a day only. Families live there, strong cooking odors and speaking among apartments. Owners are very friendly, outgoing and helpful. I would not stay in Cairns if interested in the Coral Reef. Por Duglas is...

A friendly and obliging relief manger. Apartment clean and tidy. Comfy beds. Ideal if you want to self cater and be self sufficient. Half hour walk to marina. Far enough from hustle of the busy area but close enough if you don't mind walking. Bus pick ups for all tours.

The hosts Sophie and Matt were awesome hosts. Booked us tours, loaned us an esky and cold packs for our day trips. Even an aloe plant for sunburn. The room was quiet. The Karunda train passed us 2 times in the morning and 2 in the afternoon at a reasonable times. We love trains so the kids loved watching it... More

We stayed here recently for 4 nights. The best I can say is that the bed was comfortable but the apartment was a little run down eg threadbare blankets and very loud air conditioning units and the manager not overly friendly or helpful with arranging tours. I'm sure there are many better places to stay in Cairns. Would I recommend?... More

I used a recommended website to book a two bedroom apartment.On arrival at the Citysider I was advised of no booking. No problem,we were greeted by the manager and the support staff present in a typical Aussie passion,given keys to an apartment and in about 5 minutes from arrival time we were unpacking our bags in our rooms.

Location of this complex backs onto a rail corridor. Whilst the trains only come through a couple of times a day it's not the most pleasant outlook. However not all units face the train line many overlook a pool and the front Street. So I guess it depends on the room you get. I was also above I believe a... More

We stayed 3 nights at citysider apartments. Overall the price was excellent and the apartment was clean and tidy on arrival. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our visit.

Excellent place with very friendly, helpful management. Spacious apartment, well equipped kitchen (with dishwasher), good A/C, nice pool, good bbq area. Very clean and well managed. It is not in the immediate centre of town, so food shopping requires 15 mins of walking one way. Also, the Kuranda train provides the morning alarm clock, which I thought was just fine.... More

Very clean apartment. Love the kitchen set up as it has everything I need to cook for my small family especially my 7months old baby. Also staff at the reception is very helpful in calling the taxi when asked. My family and I have enjoyed our stay here and definitely looking forward to go back in December 2015. ANNA BARTHO...
