I stayed for two nights in room 28 at a nightly rate of AU$155. The room was clean and very spacious. There wasn't much room to lounge around which suited me as I was in Hobart for two nights for a conference, and didn't spend much time in the room (apart from sleeping of course). The apartments are located in... More

Excellent location walking distance to Salamanca Markets and across the road from the MONA ferry. Rooms were ok. Georgie the front of house reception was extremely helpful and friendly. Request room facing away from pub if you are a light sleeper.

I got into Hobart incredibly late due to being diverted to Launceston and then having to bus it to Hobart and the Quest staff member was willing to wait around for me but whoa!!! After over 11.5 hours in the air and on a bus I was then in the mood for a nice room........Well! I can safely say that,... More

What a location, right in the social heart of Hobart with charge back options at many restaurants we checked in here on a recent business trip. Check in staff are as friendly as friendly can be, unfortunately the impressions soon changed as we entered warm hallways with no ventilation and loud elevators. The rooms had the same decor colours as... More

My first impression was outdated, small bathroom, gloomy and overpriced (we paid over $200 per night). There were no fan in the bathroom and no sink in our kitchenette. Small window that cannot be opened and NO free wifi as it is available for corporate guest only. This apartment desperately need to be renovated or refurbished. The good thing about... More

This was supposed to be a "serviced apartment" however we were informed after arriving that there would be no servicing of the rooms on 2 of the 5 nights we booked (due to public holidays). I believe either the hotel should offer servicing of rooms every day or advise customers prior to booking that they will not be getting what... More

I stayed here on a Tuesday night, early November. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The bathroom was huge and I liked the colour scheme. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The location was perfect, near the docks and Salamanca. The price was good considering the location. I have no hesitation in recommending it.
