The Alabama was a excellent place to stay. The rooms are very affordable and unique. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they provided us with lots of good recommendations for food and activities throughout our stay in Hobart.

Second time at the Alabama hotel. It is very affordable, central to everything, has a great ambience and knowledgeable, friendly staff. Shared bathroom down the hallway, but in a week we didn't have to wait to use. The bedroom decor is lovely, comfy bed, spotless bedding and the lounge and balcony are great places to relax. Highly recommend.

When we first entered we were most surprised with the creative second hand, vintage look. Very beautifully done! The main sitting area / bar feels extremely relaxed. They have a large selection of beers, so if you want to find a place for an evening drink: this is it! The room was simple, but clean. Also the shared bathrooms were...

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night recently and were immediately captivated by the style and wonderful ambience of this Art Deco hotel. The flamingo chandelier in the stairwell is a delight. Although it is a shared bathroom experience I didn't once come across anyone else whilst using the amenities. The place smells beautiful as they stock beautiful...

A real gem! Hotel Alabama was a rare find in Hobart: I saw the terrace and it got my attention, so I went to check the hotel...so beautiful! Hip, with a touch of quirkiness and bob gout, this hotel is simply a gem: super clean room with shared bathrooms, comfy and lovely. I loved the natural soap that they give...

In all my years of travelling, I'd rank the Alabama right up there with the best of them. My partner and I stayed on a cold Hobart night and the Alabama was just perfect. Our room was quiet and cosy and the shared bathrooms were meticulously maintained. However, the best part of the Alabama is the bar. A great collection...

Ayden and Kelly were such awesome hosts, all the tips they gave us about Hobart and the surrounding area were incredible and they were so accommodating of our requests. The room we had was cosy, the bathroom very clean, and the lounge area was so damn cool! I definitely recommend staying here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Alabama offers boutique budget rooms in the heart of Hobart. In exchange for a room less expensive than a private room in a local backpackers, the Alabama rooms are supplied with towels, crisp white linen, free wifi and the best beds around. Accommodation at the Alabama is best suited to independent travellers who are young (or young at heart!) and capable of walking themselves and their luggage up stairs. There is no off street parking so please consider if you really need a hire car while staying in the middle of the Hobart CBD as parking costs do add up. Reception is open from 8am-9pm daily and tea, coffee, drinks etc are available for purchase during this time. All rooms share bathrooms (there are no en suites). ... more   less
