My room was funky and not-so-clean, but awesome anyway. Floriana is on a fantastic, mostly quiet part of the Esplanade and the front rooms look over the park strip to the ocean. My room (#9) caught the afternoon breeze and there were a couple of rickety ceiling fans to help move it around (I didn't try the air conditioning). My... More

My partner and I stayed at Floriana Guesthouse for three nights last week and had a great time. We loved the pool area, which we used every day, and always had it completely to ourselves! Our room was nice, with an ensuite bathroom and little kitchenette. It was a little dirty, but perfectly acceptable, given that it is an older... More

Lovely old Queenslander home with lots of interesting memorabilia in the foyer. The louvers and shutters give that real tropical feel. Only 15 minutes walk from restaurants, shops and very close to the water. Maggie the owner is always on hand if there is a problem. The pool is always available for use, and very refreshing.

The room was different from the ones on the booking site. (It was not 100m2 room) It did not have a window and was not clean. Bathroom has a window, but one of the window glasses was broken. Shower head and faucets are almost broken. Everything needs to be repaired. 予約サイトの写真や説明とは全然違う部屋でした。100平米の広さはなく窓がありませんでした。掃除はきちんとされておらず浴室への扉には埃が溜まっていました。ソファは染みだらけでくたびれており座れる状態ではありません。一番ひどかったのが浴室でシャワーヘッドや洗面の蛇口が取れそうでした。窓ガラスは割れたままになっている箇所があり、虫が入らないようにするためか網戸がつけられていました。コンセプトは良いのですがメンテナンスがちゃんとされていないので勿体ないです。金額もそれほど安いわけではないので、バックパッカー向けの宿泊所の方が良いのではと言う印象を受けました。

Having stayed in numerous BnBs and Guest Houses here and abroad, I was disappointed in so many things. The host handed me to a gent, who walked me up the stairs to my room, explained tge password for the internet and no more.

Charming property, a pleasant short walk from restaurants and facilities in Cairns. Peaceful location on the Esplanade just across the road from the sea and a very relaxing place to stay. Nice, well-maintained walks along the front into Cairns and the other way along the beach. Could do with a Spring clean, but that just adds to the character!

We liked this place so much that we spent another couple of days at the end of our trip. On the first visit we had one of the flash rooms at the front, with a view of the waterfront, but the rear room on our second stay was also comfortable. This is an old building, but well-maintained and clean. About... More

Great location right on the Esplanade. Private home from the 1930s, Lovely place to stay. We were upgraded to a studio room, spacious and comfortable. Free wifi. Liked it enough to book again for when we return to Cairns. Only downside was that it took 30 minutes to wake up the manager to check in, despite a proliferation of bells!

Quirky, hospitable and laid back, the Florianas strikes a note of individuality in today's world of anonymous hotels. Architecturally pleasing, it's an interesting 10 minute walk from centre of Cairna. It's quiet and the pool is extremely relaxing.
