“Great little apartments, fantastic location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2011

We were really impressed with the apartments, especially for the cost. They were basic but had what you needed with the kitchen/lounge, pool, nice bedroom. Location was fantastic- able to walk everywhere in Cairns. Also parking was useful. Clean, nice little places that we were quite comfortable in.

The entire staff was friendly, helpful with tours, bookings and forward stays.
The location is easy walking distance to harbor but not so close you hear noise from concerts. The mall is even closer and has two grocery stores.
We will stay here again and recommend to friends.

My wife and I stayed in April and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the rooms and facilities at Il Centro. We chose this hotel mainly because of its central location and were also very happy that, even though we were in the centre of town, our room was very quiet and protected from outside noises. We were given a fantastic rate over the phone for our 5 night visit and considered the deal to be excellent value for money. I highly recommend Il Centro as a very good place to stay in Cairns.

We stayed in Cairns for several days on our holiday and stayed at this hotel as it is central to everything, and it even had a lift to get up to our rooms instead of stairs. If you drive there is plenty of secure guest parking under the hotel.
It was a very short walk to the esplanade, and around the corner from the movie theatre and major shopping centre yet far away from everything for a very quiet nights sleep. Just across the road from the Convention Centre as well.
The hotel is in need of refurbishment, but talking to the manager the refurbishment has just begun. So shortly this hotel will be in a class of its own and up there with the best.
Currently a bit dirty and run down but there is a lot of potential with a refurbishment to spring new life into this hotel to make it one of the best in Cairns.
The rooms were roomy, bathroom quite large, the pool was great. But as from previous comments about this hotel, the carpets were a bit dirty and in need of clean but I believe they are being replaced soon.
The tour desk was absolutely amazing, soo many tours to choose from and can be booked from reception, no need to call the tour operators themselves to book it, book everything from the hotel and pay there as well.
Thr rooftop was looking good as well, you can see lots of things from up there, definately worth a visit when you stay here.
I will definately be returning to see the completed refurbishment on my next stay in Cairns.

we stayed al ll centro as the first week of our holiday as we are from the area and we were flying out of the country. we found the staff very rude and not accommodation maybe due to the fact that we complained. when we walked in the apartment smelt of dust and mould, as soon as we sat on the bed the leg broke, the fridge did not keep anything cold, the washing machine overflowed when we went to use it the list just seemed to pile up. instead of trying to help us and maybe move us to another room the staff were just rude. i would not recommend this accommodation to anyone although the location is not bad II plazzo near the markets is the same price range and 100 time better.

We entered the room and it smelled of mould. Fortunately the weather was nice and so we lived with the windows open for the entire stay of 7 days.
The apartment is carpeted except for the kitchenette and the bathroom and you don't notice it at first but the carpet is terribly filthy. How did we find out ? We left our shoes by the entrance and wore slippers and I can tell that after a few hours the soles of my slippers were black instead of pale blue.
If you are someone who likes to read in the evening, don't expect to do so, because the lighting is one for watching TV only. Very poor lighting indeed.
Apart from all this, the apartment is ok, but I wouldn't go back, unless the rate/night would be under 100$, that's all it's worth.

We stayed here for eight nights. We found the staff, service and rooms very good. The rooms were serviced daily and nothing was too much trouble. We booked our tours with them as well without problems. As we did not have a car, we found everything we wanted within easy walking distance. The only thing I noticed was that the carpets in the room were a bit smelly most probably from the high humidity in the summer. Other than that, no complaints.
