This hotel has a superb location for Hobart - the east facing views are of the yachts in the harbour basin (if you take a balcony room). Lovely to sit on the balcony in the morning watching the sun rise over the harbour. Good location for Salmanca Mkts and restaurants. Note - parking is limited and hotel bays were used... More

This is a wonderful hotel, close to restaurants, tourist attractions, Salamanca market and other shops. The staff were very helpful and friendly which made us feel very welcome. On the down side parking was a bit tricky.

My partner and I stayed here for a week to celebrate my birthday. I'll admit I was hesitant after reading the reviews about noise but we were there from Tues-Sun and we did not find noise to be a problem at all. I suppose this must only be an issue during major events. Location was the best, you are right... More

This need renovation and upgrading as well as the kitchen. Very hot on the mezzanine, we had to leave the air conditioning downstairs all night, and... More

Stayed here with 3 friends for a girls weekend in Hobart. Excellent location, right in the heart of Hobart. Just next door to the ferry that goes to Mona, 5 minute walk to Salamanca where the Saturday markets are great, and there is a heap of restaurants and cafes.
