Apartments on Star
Ranked #7 of 55 Specialty Lodging in Hobart
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 1, 2013

My daughter and I had booked 3 nights and was delighted with the apartment, we both had our own bedroom and bathroom. A fully equipped kitchen and TV in the lounge and very clean. The laundry was downstairs which was handy. Martin sent me a message to say the apartment was ready before 2pm we had just arrived so once we got our hire car we went straight there and was not disappointed on the apartment.
Martin gave us some ideas on places to see and was very friendly. The views were really good. It was cold in Hobart but with the heating we soon warmed up.
We liked the design of the apartment it was very well furnished. Another bonus was the area so close to shops and easy to get around we could walk within a couple of minutes to shops or drive. We didn't want to leave, it had a very good feeling. Will have to go back again. Much better than a hotel.

Room Tip: If you want comfort, close to amenities, space to move.

I found this accommodation via this site and was convinced via the previous reviews.
It definitely lives up to every review, which are all positive.
The accommodation is clean, comfortable, spacious, relaxing, warm, private, yet welcoming and everything else you may be looking for.
It is a very easy walk to all shops and dining spots.
A lot of thought is given to details that definitely sets this establishment well above others, such as a pre-boiled kettle and biscuits ready for you upon arrival. The apartment is very modern and tastefully decorated and they have not 'cheaper out' with the furniture or utensils in the kitchen. This is a lovely bit of luxury at a very affordable price. Tony and Martin provide a great balance with catering for the needs of their guests while not being invasive on personal space while you enjoy a relaxing holiday.
We loved this spot and would definitely come back again, and again, and again!
Loved everything about this place - too much to go into detail - and next time I am in Hobart I will check out accommodation here first.

We would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Hobart ,from the time Tony welcomed us to the apartment with an already warmed kettle,travel ideas with notes and just plain good old fashioned hospitality our stay at Apartments on Star has been wonderful.The apartments are kept in a modern fashion with everything you can think of at your fingertips ,apartment #3 has water views to wrest point casino and is a five minute walk to the Restaurant strip of Sandy Bay, it is a very short drive to the centre of town or alternatively a fifteen minute walk to the Salamanca square shops and restaurants. Abigail thank you to Tony and Martin

We stayed in Apartment 1 and it is the best serviced apartment I have ever stayed in (I am very picky in this regard). It is very clean, nicely-decorated, well-equipped, comfortable, and close to town centre. The host Tony was friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend it if you are staying in Hobart.

Great location and the apartment had everything we needed. We arrived to a warm apartment and had a personal welcome from Martin. Tony's recommendations for day trips and places to eat were great. Loved the detail in the design such as the polished concrete floor and stylish appliances. Thanks for a lovely stay! Will be back again!

Apartment 4 had everything we needed and more although the bedrooms were on the small side. Everything worked very well and we appreciated Tony's advice about the local area. Not sure about the concrete floors and the gloomy air downstairs which was in contrast to the contemporary feel upstairs.

Dear John_Ivycottage, Thank you so much for taking the time to review us and we’re glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate all reviews and take all comments on board. As you mentioned, design is a very personal thing, and in this instance the bonus of the polished concrete floors is that they incorporate under floor heating, which is very beneficial in colder times.
Regarding the gloomy air in bedrooms, our observations have been that on check in, the first couple of things that guests usually do are, *close all windows,* shut all blinds and our beautiful Tassie light and fresh air is locked out until departure! What more can I say. Best regards, Martin
