I visited this place around 21/22 Sept'16. We booked a room that fit 4 persons and the space is spacious. We all feel comfortable. The room still provided microwave, cooker + utensils, where allowed us to shop supermarket goodies to settle our simple meals. The area located not near the centre amenities, however it is a safe place which surrounded... More

We've stayed there twice now, both times excellent. Friendly staff, clean rooms and really close to all major areas in Hobart. Would stay there again next time we visit. Good value for money. We loved it!

Fountainside Hotel is in a great location for many Hobart attractions and is nice and quiet. More parking may be handy but it is comparable to other accommodation options in the area, the staff are more than willing to assist with any queries and have wonderful personalities. It is great to find accommodation in a city you frequent that ticks... More

I was recently staying here while in Hobart for a conference. This is not what I call posh, if you are after that sort of thing, but it is comfortable and valuable. Minibar pricing, standard pricing which is great. It was a little noisy next to the roundabout, but I'm used to no noise and I was on level 1.... More

It's good for family stay. A queen size bed with two single beds. Suitable for a family of four or five. An open kitchen for cooking meals. Sit at the corner of the room gives you a panorama view of the city (of course you have to stay at higher floors). Carpark is convenient.

What a fantastic location! Customer service was absolutely wonderful! This is the second time we have stayed here, and it has been absolutely fantastic! The only downfall is the limited parking spaces.

In Hobart for a conference, and booked this place through the airline website (after a TripAdvisor search). I travel a fair bit, and this is one of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in. The staff is super helpful, the location is great and (tiny but not insignificant thing) the mini-bar is so reasonably priced--you can have a sneaky bottle... More

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
