One night

Proximity to the city... awesum free breakfast. ensuite at cheap discount
I've always enjoyed the Hides Hotel,, the front office staff are always there to help you. They are friendly, courteous, and helpful. The breakfast and the room were a great price for a single traveler such as myself..

beautiful old building with amazing lift

the high ceiling rooms, old lift
I stayed overnight in hotel and I did not pay attention that I will use the common toilet. I think how that it is a rather common arrangement because I stayed in another place also with the shared toilet in the same price range.

Great location

The best things about the hotel were its location, price and character.
The showers were horrible. There is no hot water and unfortunately they're communal. Otherwise everything else was fine.

Great as usual

Value, Location, Breakfast deck
Always a great place to stay in Cairns. My only complaint, as ever is that the internet barely works in the rooms. Fix that and it would be a perfect stay.
