“Great value, great room, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2010

I stayed with a friend in a two bed room (one king single, one queen) for three nights. The room was great, very comfortable beds - even a choice of pillow types - amazing. The decor was modern and stylish. Nothing seemed to much trouble from the staff. The mini bar prices were the same as you'd pay at the shops, and the charge for using the internet was negligable. The location is great. We had a car and never had any trouble with parking. It's a very short walk to Salamanca and there is a Coles just down the road for when you want to use the cooking facilities in the room. The flatscreen TV was great, and there was a good choice of channels to choose from. I would definately stay here again.

We stayed here for three nights and we were very happy. The room was clean, roomy and nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The location was good, within walking distance to Salamanca markets, and there were several restaurants in the neighbourhood, including a few cafes which were a good option for breakfast. There is also a bottle shop attached to the hotel, in case you want to have a few beers in your room, and the room had a small mini-bar with snacks and drinks that was very reasonably priced. There was no internet in the hotel room but I did see a sign in the lobby for free internet use down the hall.. we didn't check it out though. Since we rented a car we were glad that there was plenty of free parking at the hotel. We'd definitely recommend it to anyone!

The St Ives apartments are situated within a 10 minute walk from the tourist attraction of Salamanca place. But it is a downhill walk. So I guess you will need to walk back UPHILL at some stage. The apartments have been recently refurbished and are very clean and tidy. They are serviced everyday, unless you desire otherwise.
The facilities are complete, so you can do your own thing if you desire.
Whilst there is a large widescreen television suspended on the wall, there is also another one on the adjoining apartment. This means that some of the TV sound from the adjoining apartment can intrude. Luckily our neighbours switched it off at a reasonable hour.
Other than that, I can happily say that our stay at St Ives was very pleasant in very nice surroundings.

Chose St Ives due to positive reviews on this site. Usually glowing reviews leave your expectations too high but St Ives certainly delivered. Clean, comfortable, great location -short walk to Salamanca (5min), Hobart(10min), Casino(20min) and surrounds. Quiet, not in the main hub of it all. It's true - continental brekky $3, snacks and drinks priced well (mini bar). Gave service 4/5 and not full marks - although reception were friendly, they were quick to send us in the direction of the Tourist Information Centre. Asked for recommendation on local Thai restaurant but couldnt suggest one. I understand everyone may not appreciate good thai but I felt a little help of going thru the yellow pages or google would have been appreciated. For those who do like Thai....'Suwan' Salamanca Place was yummy - 8/10 - located at the end of an arcade, same block as Irish Murphys(great beer) and Retro cafe(great brekky $15 for most combos), 'Zum' for brekky also great. Enjoy! p.s Fresh towels are supplied daily and your bed is made! Good quality shampoo/conditioner/moisturiser/soaps are replenished daily too!

We have found that most city accommodation is overpriced and has added expensive parking !
Well St. Ives Apartments was much more than we expected! Easy and lovely walk to Salamanca Market you can leave your car in the free parking and stroll to lots of lovely places in the city!
We had four nights there and we would love to return again.
Highly recommend it!

Wife and I stayed here over Xmas 2009. Great location - the hotel is just a five minute stroll to Salamanca Place and a short stroll to the Sandy Bay foreshore. A walk around the surrounding streets of the historic suburb of Battery Point is well worthwhile as there are some gorgeous and grand old houses there. At a guess, the hotel may have been built in the 60's or 70's and the exterior of the hotel is underwhelming. However, the interior has been nicely refurbished and the room was clean and pretty well equipped. Minibar with drinks and snacks was very reasonably priced. The room had a balcony which offered limited water views but there was no table or chairs on the balcony and only one chair that could be moved from inside out to the balcony. The friendliness/helpfulness of staff varied considerably. The young lady we met on arrival was very bright and helpful while others we encountered were far less so. A modest 'continental' breakfast pack can be purchased for $3 comprising cereal, bread and spreads. At around $190 per night we didn't consider this place to be any bargain but you're paying for the location and after all it was Xmas peak. If you have a choice you might like to ask for a room at the Southern end of the building which is further away from the main road and the adjoining drive through bottle shop.
