The apartment rooms hotel has a good location - 20 minutes walk from the pier, many restaurants around, a shopping mall across the street (where many stores close at 5PM!). The rooms are spacious but we had problems with the facilities - the AC ventilator in the balcony of room 1107 was very noisy and the hot air made the...

The hotel is a bit far removed from all the attractions but it's perfect if you want to get away from that. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable with all the amenities you would need from an apartment-hotel.

It boggles my mind how this place is so highly rated. It is well below average. It is tired and unkept. We had 2 rooms over 3 nights. The 1st was a studio with a great view but that was as good as it got. The carpet was torn and shabby, the shower let water out and flooded the bathroom.,...

Pros: Would be perfect for couples or people with older teenage kids. Super close to shops. Excellent location and beautifully clean rooms. All in all it was a great motel and a great stay. The only issue we had was that it is not a family hotel. "Games/family room" had very few video games that didn't work and the pool...

The location is great for anybody wanting to do the Barrier Reef or the rainforest, and although it is basic, it does the job and is fairly cheap. It is certainly comfy and clean. I thought that more staff would be on hand to help but that's a minor issue. Would be happy staying here again

No fuss basic accommodation in a good location in Cairns. Clean. Friendly staff. Suitably priced. The draw card for us was the roof view of the NYE fireworks - which was amazing as the building is so tall. Rooftop pool too.

Definitely not a luxury stay but we slept well. Room was clean and the bed comfortable. Wifi was strong and sufficiently fast to actually be useful. Some sights of wear and tear but not enough to be an issue. Hotel is on the edge of the touristy area with good restaurants within a couple blocks and about 5 min walking...
