We stayed at Il Palazzo for two nights (a few days apart), and found it to be a positive experience. It is centrally located, which was a real plus for us, as it is within walking distance of many restaurants, shops, and attractions in Cairns.

Stayed here for 5 nights at the end of a 6 week tour of Australia. Apartments very well situated - just a short drive from the airport and short walk from bars, restaurants and the lagoon. The receptionists were so helpful and arranged all our tours at very short notice - billing us at the end of our stay.

This is a well appointed apartment hotel, and with that it understands the following: you need to clean your kitchen dishes, the sheets are not changed daily, and there really isn't a bedroom view. BUT: you can wash your clothes (essential after a day on the reef), the AC works well, the front desk staff are wonderfully helpful and polite...

We stayed at IL Palazzo Boutique Hotel for a week in early March. The room was large and equipped with a full kitchen minus an oven. The washer and dryer in the unit were wonderful for cleaning the clothes from our prior 12 day cruise. The room had a balcony that faced the water, an eating area and ample living...

We chose this based on the location--in town and a short walk to the boats to the great barrier reef. The hotel is lovely. The room was bright, clean, open and comfortable. The desk staff arranged my snorkeling trip to the reef, which was quite convenient. We spent lots of time at the pool--we needed some rest from all our...
