Southern Cross Atrium Apartments, Cairns
Amazing sunsets by the pool, near everything
Amazing hidden place with great location. The largest mall is across street, Kuranda train stop 3 blocks away, and the Cairns city centre and lagoon just a few blocks on opposite direction. The rooms are great, and the pool area looks as magnificent as the photos... took sunset photos from it every night !

Well positioned to explore Cairns City.
Southern Cross Atrium Apartments is located relatively close to Cairns Airport and centrally located to many things in Cairns City. The description and pictures were representative of what I experienced during my stay. I found the accommodations to be clean and agreeable. My room has a refrigerator, a stove, and a microwave. The room was located within a 3-5 minute walk of a market/grocery store. The staff was nice and professional upon check-in and open to questions about the general area. The grounds were well landscaped and I found it to be welcoming. I would stay here again.

Not quite as nice as the pictures
The pictures look quite a bit better than the actual apartment. They're not serviced, which I didn't realize when booking, so no one freshens your room daily. There's no carpet or rugs. There's a kitchen but the smoke alarm went off when we cooked meat on the stove, and laundry facilities are on site but not in the apartment.

Quite disappointed
Although the room was nice we felt we were in a hole The balcony was just a couple of feet from a cement wall We could not see out at all We booked for 4 nights so we should have complained but didn't Any service like phoning for a taxi or printing out a boarding pass required a fee The bed was 2 singles put together which gave a hard centre line
