Stayed at the HJ for 4 nights over New Years - perfect location for the Sydney to Hobart yachts, the Taste of Tasmania, or anything, really to do with the harbour and Hobart.
The hotel staff have a fantastic attitude and are extremely helpful.
We did have a few issues, starting with our bags taking over an hour and a half to be brought to the room and refreshes not being done as requested (not being precious but for a 5 star plus hotel and very expensive rates...).
Our bathroom was the worst design imaginable. Although quite large, the door opens inward and, if a person if standing at the single basin sink, another person cannot get into the bathroom - terrible design. Also, bathroom lighting, for a female, is unacceptable.
A hotel of this caliber should also have a tub in the bathroom - there is room for it...it's just not there.
The reading lights above the bed are blinding and not adjustable.
If it is windy outside (it was one night), wind whistles (howls) through the windows and under the door like a banshee.
Although the hotel is very cool, very funky and beautiful (and the bartenders are very talented), it really needs some re-thinking on the practical design of the rooms for comfort.
A definite case of art over comfort in my opinion.
Great spot but way over-priced for the value of the room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Australia's first dedicated art hotel stands proudly on Hobart's glorious waterfront. A handsome row of historic warehouses dating from the 1820s (the former IXL jam factory) have been creatively transformed into an enthralling multi-award winning first class hotel. The hotel itself is a work of art. Here you'll be fascinated by the unexpected combination of the antique and the ultra modern. ... more less
