"The location and the facility was much better than I expected. I definitely was pleasantly surprised. The room is large and it has everything you need as mentioned in the other reviews. The location is quiet and I did not feel it was unsafe at any time. It is a bit remote but the Esplanade is a 2 km walk or so and it is probably 4 to the center of Cairns. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. We had a need for an additional bed and they reacted promptly to satisfy our need. They did even more. An excellent experience. Certainly not a 5 star hotel but a great value for money. "

"My partner n I have been staying in different motels , caravan parks n so on in cairns for the past 3 months . So many places were dirty , staff were very rude and alot of our belongings were stolen . Bohemia was far above all of the other places n great value for money. We stayed there for a total of three weeks , Wishing we had of found this place when we first came to cairns as it would of saved us alot of stress n we wouldnt of had nothing stolen .I loved the fact that we could hang our clothes on the line n they would still be there the next morning . I highly recommend BOHEMIA resort for ur budget cairns stay."

"Great priced hotel in Cairns. Clean, comfy beds and friendly staff. Our room was facing the main street and it was noisy due to traffic. If you can, get a room facing the pool as its much quiet. The hotel is slightly far from the restaurants and the esplanade. Apart from the noise and the location, this is a great budget friendly hotel."

"Hostel located right opposite of Esplanade Lagoon. Next to Mcdonalds and 3min walk to Woolworths. Receptionist Laura is so helpful and friendly. I'm in love with the 4th floor open concept kitchens and living area I spend at least 4 to 5 hours sitting there to watch sunrise or sunset. The only hostel in Australia I had ever stayed with seaview. Kitchen is huge and clean. The only thing is imperfect was housekeeping. I been staying for 4days and 3nights. The floor mat was dirty since the day I checked in and not changing until I checked out. I can only see the rubbish was thrown and toilet roll and towel were refills. But definitely I will be back! "

"Had an enjoyable week stay at this hotel. It was my first stay here, having stayed at various hotels in Cairns from 3 star to 5 star. The hotel is very central to all, shopping , night life, adventure tours and dining all within walking distance. Transport is at your doorstep and the friendly staff at the Hides can book any excursion trip. Breakfast was simple but filling. Room was simple and clean, my only vice was the extra pillows I had, had a tear in the pillow case, maybe they need some new linen. Bathroom was clean and fresh. I was down the corridor at the Grafton Street end, and you do get a lot of noise from the backpackers Gilligans across the road, so ask for a quiet room if you are a light sleeper. On whole I enjoyed the stay and will be booking my next visit to Cairns with them. Don't expect anything fancy, but for a clean room in the heart of Cairns at a good price, I recommend Hides."

"I definitely recommend Palm Royale Cairns Resort! They have the best customer service I've experienced (and I've travelled a bit)! Prior to the trip, a family member became quite seriously ill and as a result, I had to forfeit my flight and only enjoyed 2 out of the 4 day's planned. However, much to my surprise, when I rang to ensure my final 2 night's accom. were still available, one of the hotel staff kindly offered not to incur any charges for cancelling the first two night's and even refunded the money, via Agoda, for the first two night's. I was able to enjoy two nights at the resort and was delightfully surprised at the standard of their pool view rooms - they were clean, comfortable and probably at a 4-star standard. one of the hotel staff was always helpful and went over and above to assist us with our enquiries. Overall, Palm Royale provided a great start to a lovely break in Cairns. Thanks to all the staff there!"

More about Cairns

The tropical city of Cairns is one of Australia’s most popular vacation destinations, located on the northeastern coast of Australia. The city is only an hour from the Great Barrier Reef by boat, so most travelers use Cairns as a jumping-off point to see more of Northern Queensland’s natural features or learn more about the Great Barrier Reef at Reef Teach

Cairns is a relaxed coastal town that welcomes a large number of international tourists every year. Life in this city mostly revolves around days spent at the beach, but travelers will also find other more adventurous pursuits as well. Great Barrier Reef and island cruises of every kind are available from the pier, as well as four wheel drive and eco tours, wine tastings, bird watching, and golf for those staying on the mainland.

Cairns is a great place for fishing enthusiasts, as the city offers a variety of fishing activities and is known as the black marlin capital of the world. The Cairns Tropical Zoo is a favorite among tourists, and especially popular among families because of the interactive experience it offers young explorers.

While Cairns is by no means a party city, it has plenty to keep night owls entertained.

To get into Cairns, most travelers arrive via Cairns International Airport, only seven kilometers from town.

There’s much more to see and learn about Cairns, and the interactive map is a great way to continue uncovering all the important landmarks and attractions of this vibrant city.
