We loved this place it was so close to Salamanca warf and battery point. We didn't have a problem getting our bags up the stairs as there is a lift for your bags, which not only functions fine but is quite quaint and antique as well.
We stayed for one night on the Monday, went to strahan for a few days and then returned for another three days, I must say although our accomodation in Strahan was lovely, we couldn't wait to get back to hobart and our comfy room at the Astor. Besides the great proximity to Salamanca Markets on a saturday the hotel has a great restaurant (operated by another business) and a fantastic patisserie just around the corner if your feeling like endulging in cake and coffee.
