It's comfortable. Not well decorated but All required amenities are available, full kitchen etc. very near to the pier and they Saturday market. Wifi available in the room but only able to connect 2 devices. Very limited carpark. It's a bit far from the hotel lobby. After checked in, have to drive a distance to the room.

We stayed here with another couple in a two bedroom (queen beds) for three nights in mid-May. Upon arrival at the apartments we discovered that we had been given a two bedroom unit, with one bedroom consisting of two single beds. A quick phone call to reception (located at Somerset on the Pier) rectified the situation with a prompt visit... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for our recent girls reunion. Very comfortable, roomy, 2 bathrooms, balcony, and quiet despite being in the midst of the tourist area. We were a group of 5 and they happily made the beds single and added a roll away. There are lots of restaurants close by and a nice supermarket down the... More

My wife and I have just visited Hobart and we stayed at the Somerset on Salamanca in the deluxe room second floor. The hotel itself is right on the Salamanca Market for a Saturday morning stroll, just a mere 100 metres away.

The apartment was clean and tidy, and suitable for our family of 2 teens and 2 adults. It is close to the markets and the Salamanca arts precinct. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in Hobart.

We chose Somerset on Salamanca for our Girls Night Out in December this year, because it is central in Hobart, and there are not many hotels which will sleep five ladies in the same apartment. When we arrived in Hobart we checked in at Somerset on the Pier. We were then able to park in the carpark at Somerset on... More

Located in Salamanca Place, close to restaurants, bars, hairdresser and galleries, Somerset is an ideal serviced apartment for families and travellers who want a handy base for a Hobart holiday.
