This is a good location close to Ibis on Therry st. for tours and QV market( a short walk down behind hotel). Close to free tram. I walked to Chinatown but bit of a walk down Elizabeth st. toward CBD. My only complaint was shower is open and flooding occurred due to water reaching the room. WiFi was very good and quick. Front desk helped me call Sydney for a booked shuttle that never arrived. They also helped with shuttle in Melbourne which didn't stay but a minute as Elizabeth st. is busy. Because of this they didn't return until 1 hour later causing me to miss an earlier flight. The hotel didn't cause this and one manager tried to help me. Front desk staff very helpful. I didn't eat at Jasper restaurant myself but it always looked busy. Refrigerator handy in room to keep drinks cold.Bed comfy. Overall would recommend and stay again.

The hotel room was very clean. Sheets, towels were changed everyday, and toiletries replaced daily. Good location, close to marina, shops etc. Great value for money.

I stay here often and it's easily the best value in Cairns. There are plenty of restaurants/bars close by although it is a little far from downtown. The rooms are nice for the area, and the staff is always helpful.

The hotel is located a nice walk from the dt are and the ocean. It gives you a location on the edge of all the business, which is nice if you want to take a break from all the people. They have a grill, hot plate, and cooking supplies, which can give you a much needed break from eating out at expensive places. Great Value!

Very good experience, eassy to go and a good place to stay with family.

It's just a great little hotel. Not terribly impressive from the outside, but the rooms are very nice, and you can't beat the price.

Very helpful staff, helped with booking tours and trip to great barrier reef, plus there was a discount booking through them.

Our experience at the hotel was unfortunately highly depressive bordering on disastrous ! What we needed and were confirmed by agent was there will be two rooms , one with 2 single beds and another with 2 double beds (2+4). What we were offered was 2 rooms each with one single and one double bed (3+3). We requested that they relocate us to 2 rooms with [2p+4p] arrangement either in the same hotel or in a nearby unit, which the inexperienced and the only available receptionist was unable to do. The rooms were unattractive and dysfunctional, the phones were inoperative and remained so during the 2 night's stay in spite of repeated reminders. The AC in one room was inoperative the whole time. We were told no maintenance persons are available to help. The stoves in kitchenettes were old and rusted. The refrigerators were old and way past their useful life. The beds were on rollers and two of them were unrestrained on the floor and moved around each time one got in or out of them. There were no one on duty after 4 pm [we were told it was Easter week end hence no person or service would be available]. The stairs were exposed and steep and we had a real hard time in carrying suitcases upstairs. It was one of the worst accommodations that we ever had to live in.. We strongly urge you to visit the hotel immediately and downgrade and/or eliminate it from their recommended list. We were misled with its 4 Star rating. It can be a 2 Star hotel at best. Thanks, Bn Roy

The bathroom and bedroom was all one room. Very tiny and no place to move around. Location is only ok, nothing special

This room was so bad, at first I thought it was a hidden camera joke. The "studio" rooms are much smaller than the even the smallest cruise ship room. The single bed broke when I sat on it (and I am 80 kgs!). This room would be ideal for a garden gnome wanting to feel cozy. Unless the 'studio" rooms are an anomaly, I can't see how this property can even garner one star! The front office closes at 8 pm, so don' try to check in after hours.

This hotel messed up our reservation and put us in a room that was not well arranged or suitable for our needs. In addition, they did not have internet available to the rooms unless you paid a rather hefty fee. Overall, this was not the best experience I've ever had in a hotel!

I was just looking for a clean, safe place to spend a night prior to flying home to the US after a dive trip. AC was a little off the beaten path, but the staff were very helpful and friendly and the room was clean. I was happy with the value and choice.

We stayed here for two nights in the studio style room. Surprisingly well stocked kitchen area. If you don't feel like cooking, walk down Sheridan (towards the bottle shop) a few blocks and eat at the fish n chip place, they have amazing burgers!

The Aspect Central is located a ten-minute walk from the center of town, and on the route in from the airport. Its rooms are recently renovated in a nice modern style. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. As a price performer, it was not so different than another hotel we'd paid three times as much.
