These are lovely modern apartments and offer all you would need for a short or extended stay in Hobart. It was a bit fiddly checking in as you have to use the reception at another location but once you get that sorted you won't have much else to do but kick back and enjoy. I didn't hear another person the...

It was a really nice apartment with easy access to the Salamanca area. It was a large room with a generous bathroom/laundry facility. Reception actually at Salamanca on the Pier, but they were great about coming over as we didn't have a car to check us in.

We stayed here for a few nights and had a great stay. The location is fantastic - right at the end of the Salamanca Markets. It is close to the city centre and virtually on the harbour, The staff were very helpful, even dealing with a drunk guest late at night. Housekeeping staff were very obliging. The suite we had...

Checked in at Pier location (very efficient) and transferred by mini bus to apartments. Total time was only 15 min. The apartment was in perfect location for Saturday Market and other pubs and restaurants. it was also very convenient to catch ferry to the football.

Very nice 1 bedroom apartment for 2 people in perfect location in Hobart. However for this price there was enough tea and coffee sachets for only 2 cups of tea or coffee! This isn't a hotel so you can't just go to reception and ask for some more. Bring your own tea and coffee with you. This apartment has a...

This is not a hotel. These are serviced apartments. 24 hour reception is actually 1 kilometre away - at a different hotel! It is a great location - granted. But this is pretty basic for the price. Apart from the location, I fail to see how it warrants its advertised four stars.I was underwhelmed.

We stayed a night at Somerset and was not really impressed by the amenities provided in the room. The second bathroom was clogged and it made it rather unpleasant to take a shower. However, there is a nice feature to the hotel which is the location. Strategically located at the Salamanca markets.

Can't get a much better located apartment than this to explore Hobart, especially if you're there on a Saturday and are heading to Salamanca markets. Check in is actually done at Somerset on the pier which is a bit annoying but as long as you know in advance its Fine. They even offered to drive us over there. Parking is...

Six years ago we stayed at the nearby Somerset on the Pier, so when we were planning a return holiday to Tassie, this was one of the first places we checked out.
