Il Centro Apartment Suites
Ranked #38 of 64 Hotels in Cairns
Reviewed February 28, 2011

This place was a real find. Close to the Cairns downtown area and all you could ask for. Quiet and away from the noisy part of town yet walking distance to the main shops, train st5ation and the Esplanade.
The apartment has a separate bedroom and a great little kitchen.
Staff were friendly and helped us with a tour booking. No trouble at all.

We stayed at Il Centro for three nights while holidaying in Cairns. We were looking for quality self-contained apartment accommodation within the CBD and we didn't want to pay more than $100 per night. Overall, we found the apartments to be very good, roomy, all the appliances we could want, pool was good, free parking, comfortable bed, within walking distance to restaurants, Esplanade, ferry terminals. About the only downsides were the number of children staying there, which made the pool a bit inaccessible; the garden around the pool was a bit tacky and was undergoing renovations; the outside looked a bit tired and could probably do with a coat of paint. But realistically for $100 a night you really couldn't want more.

Have stayed here a couple of times when we come to Cairns to dive. Always very accommodating, great coffee available and beds very comfortable. Always our choice when we are in Cairns.

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.
