“Great location, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Opposite some well known fashion and home wares stores, a short walk up, down or around the block to most of Downtown Hobart; Salamanca Place was just 2 blocks away, we found this great value for money.
Friendly staff, king size bed, and with a window (on the 5th floor), that we could leave open, we enjoyed the spaciousness of our separate bedroom, kitchenette, lounge/dining apartment. A relaxing stay and looking forward to the refurbishment of foyer/restaurant/entry, especially if they keep selling rooms at this price. Don't be put off by the lack of easy access when arriving...the reception is tucked away up a short flight of stairs, but this too is marked for change....Planning to return soon

Room Tip: Window shutters could be closed to block noise and light...we faced North which might get hot mid su...

Recently took a long weekend and stayed at the hotel for three nights while visiting Hobart.

Hotel has a number of perks and very well located, but one thing that really bothered me was the poor level of cleanliness observed by the hotel, resulting in me waking up after the first night COVERED in small insect/ bug bites. I had bites on my arms, legs, torso, back, EVERYWHERE.

The staff were quite apologetic when we raised this with them and had promised a thorough clean of the room. And while there were no (or reduced) further incidents, I've left the hotel with a significant level of discomfort which should have not happened in the first place.

Other than that the hotel does discount rates, free parking and wifi for auto club members. It is also walking distance to salamanca and the pier.

I stayed 2 nights (Saturday & Sunday) in a twin share room.

The rooms are well decorated. Beds comfy. Bathroom clean and modern.
Main complaint about the layout of the bathroom was the shower screen did not close - it's only a half partition with the bottom part exposed allowing water to get into the rest of the bathroom.

One gripe is with housekeeping not keeping tabs on the room. The ironing board was completely broken when I took it out to use it. Coffee sachets were not replenished when the room was cleaned nor the little milk carton replaced.

My main gripe though is the lack of car parking on a Saturday night! I had to invent a car spot in the car park to leave my car. Considering the hotel is run by an automobile club, I find it strange that there wasn't adequate parking facilities (only a total of 2 full levels - though each level was not very large).

Overall I recommend this particular hotel. I hope the other RACV hotels are of a similar standard as I would definitely book with them in the future if this is the case.

Stayed in a hotel room unit. Recently refurbished. Exceedingly clean and comfortable. We asked for a different pillow from their pillow menu and were very happy with it. Close to the marketplace. Nice bookstore down the street. The mall is also close but finding the entrance can be challenging. The hotel has Auto club rates and gave us free parking with our USA AAA membership card.

We stayed here for our first two nights in Hobart. Location is great being quiet, yet right in the centre of the CBD. Our room was modern, spotless and well appointed, with a view out to North Hobart and Mt Wellington. The King bed was so comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were able to walk all over the cbd being close to shopping, dining and the waterfront. We would definitely stay again. Great bang for your buck.

Stayed in the apartment for 4 nights. The apartment is very well appointed with a small kitchenette and a lounge area. There is a TV in the lounge area and in the bedroom. The hotel is very centrally located to the shops and a short to Salamanca place. It has free wi fi all over the hotel. The hotel is going to be renovated changing the reception area which should modernise the hotel. The staff are very polite and helpful.

I needed a wheelchair accessible apartment hotel and this fulfilled all my requirements - disabled accessible toilet/bathroom, kitchenette, lounge, disabled parking spot near lifts. Parking and wifi free for RACV members. Furniture and appliances are new, washer/dryer included. (Rather bland colour scheme for the furniture, though.) Central location - only a few blocks away from the wharf and Salamanca Market, and lots of good Asian restaurants nearby for a quick take-away dinner. Great for a family holiday.
