Brilliant hotel choice close to hospital and close to waterfront. Despite hearing it may be noisy re. nearby street it was negligible. Room very clean and very comfortable. Great choice of responsible brand shampoos. Best was the affordable fully stocked bar, with shop pricing (like $1.50 for can of soft drink). Good parking facility, large TV with movie and sport...

Third time we've visited hobart and third time we've stayed at the fountainside hotel. It is walking distance to everything eg 15 min to salamanca 5 min walk to get bus to footy. Rooms are good size and clean. Restaurant has great food and of course the mini bar is cheaper than the shops. Front desk girls are always happy... More

We decided to stay at the Fountainside Hotel in Hobart on recommendation from some locals and we are glad we did as the King rooms were wonderful. We did have a little trepidation as the hotel is situated a few blocks from the main city square and right on a very busy roundabout but it wasn't much of a bother... More

We had a weekend stay at the Fountainside with some friends from Devonport, and can recommend it thoroughly. As other reviews have mentioned, the beds and bathrooms are good, and the products in the minibar are comparatively cheap for a hotel. It's only a two block walk away from the shops in downtown Hobart, so very accessible. The staff were... More

We stayed in this hotel for a night on an overnight trip to Hobart. We have stayed here before and find the hotel reasonably priced and comfortable. This hotel is conveniently located and within walking distance from Hobart central and the docks and Salamanca. The rooms are clean and comfortable. One complaint could be that they are a little noisy... More

Another great stay in this location. Stayed in a studio apartment (level 1 this time) - higher levels are definitely better for views. Love the space these apartments have. Lift is currently being renovated, but that didn't impact at all. Clean, spacious, great staff, and close to everything.

Given that this hotel is for the budget conscious, we found it superb. Service was friendly and chatty. Rooms were a good size and cleanliness was right up there. And the mini bar! Wow, normal prices! Can of coke, $1.50, bottle of water $2, Jack Daniels $5. I mean, that's regular pricing. We ate in the restaurant and the food... More

Five minutes from the waterfront, and with lots of nice restaurants, this is an idea base for exploring Hobart. Unless you happen to be weighed down with shopping in which case you would need to take a cab from the main shopping streets. Large comfortable room, great views, nice bed, problem-free wifi. Our top-floor room had a Japanese style toilet... More

This hotel is conveniently located close to all Hobart city has to offer. The room we were given was a lovely size, with a large and very comfortable bed. We had a great view of the fountain outside. The rooms were well insulated and although the lift outside (which is currently being upgraded) was noisy, we did not hear any... More

We initially booked a more expensive Hotel but decided to book The Fountainside Hotel instead as we were only staying in Hobart for 2 nights & wouldn't be spending much time there. The reviews we had read before booking were 'spot on' - everything we wanted for a short stay. Large room, king(comfy) bed, awesome bathroom & toiletries, well-priced mini... More
