RACV/RACT Hobart Apartment Hotel
Ranked #6 of 47 Hotels in Hobart
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Booked through the Racv and was upgraded to an apartment for doing so! The apartment had 3 rooms, bathroom, bedroom and living/kitchenette. The bathroom was large with a full size bath, walk in shower, wash basin and ample bench space. Towels were a good size, clean and fluffy! Shower had plenty of hot water and was excellent.

Bedroom had a large queen bed, it was comfortable, a pillow menu was on offer. The room was of a good size, large wardrobe and plenty of space for our cases.

Living area had suitable chairs, a large screen TV and a kitchenette with tea/coffee making supplies, a microwave and some cooking utensils(we ate out every meal!)

I rate the hotel highly as the staff were excellent, the room met all our expectations as it was spotlessly clean and well equipped. For an inner city location it was quiet, very, very convenient to all the central attractions and the waterfront and the restaurants.

Great rooms, very clean. Our view wasn't the best, we could see only rooftops and a high rise parking lot. Great deal on in house movies.

I would not recommend the restaurant! The room services menu was a little disappointing also. We went to the restaurant thinking the menu would be different from the room service menu and found they were the same. My husband and I ordered a tapas lamb cutlet and a pizza to share, we asked the waitress if this would be enough to share, she said yes. When the food can out, there was only ONE lamb cutlet!! and the pizza was the size our 7 year old would eat to himself. After spending $40 on food only, we walked the streets to find somewhere else to eat.

Otherwise the hotel staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the hotel. Would advise eat somewhere else and don't get room service!!

My partner an I stayed here for two nights while visiting Hobart. The hotel is extremely central- walking distance to many restaurants along the harbour and the Salamanca Markets. Our room was fantastic. Very roomy- with a separate living area and kitchenette which was useful to have for a quick breakfast. We didn't try any of the food in the hotel restaurant but only due to an abundance of tiny cafes and restaurants dotted along the harbour. They also have a gym which had average facilities. The only fault I have with this hotel is that there is a charge of $15 per day for the carpark. Given it is hard to find parking on the street this would need to be an additional cost to keep in mind.

Initially this Hotel is hard to find and with the oneway streets in Hobart can be quite confusing! Our checkin was efficient and on entering the room, a 1 bedroom King Apartment, we were quite disappointed with the kitchen. Only a microwave and an electric frypan in a tiny kitchenette, no cooking utensils, so unable to self cater for our 4 night stay! Interestingly there is a dishwasher (drawer style), but one wonders why this is necessary, and clearly it had never been used, as it was not even set up correctly!! The centrality to restaurants was its redeeming feature and we had several very good meals out, within a couple of blocks of the Hotel. The tapas and pizzas at Charcoal are excellent, and prices were reasonable. Walking to Salamanca Market and the Constitution Docks area was easy and enjoyable. Would stay again and recommend to others!

Had a king apartment for 4 days. A bit hard to find the hotel at first. Room was lovely and clean, had everything in it a needed including a washer/dryer. The view was ok though we had a lot of old roof tops and could only see water through a small opening. Great location for shopping and the Salamanca market. Would definitely stay again.

The apartment was spacious with small kitchenette, which had dishwasher, microwave and full size sink and adequate bench space to prepare a meal. There was a washing machine and tumble dryer tucked away in a cupboard. The bathroom had a full size bath and seperate shower. All were spotless and tastefully decorated. The corner room offered a wonderful view of snow capped mount Wellington and a side view over the courtyard. Reception staff were welcoming and attentive. My daughter and I were travelling and enjoyed this spacious apartment after staying in small twin rooms with little more than a bed. Charocoal resturant has a limited menu but food was very enjoyable.

Room Tip: corner rooms offer more windows. We stayed in 3301 and were very happy.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel had just changed hands, and seemed to have a somewhat strained relationship to its former 'parent', Hadley's (with which it shares common passages) but a different entrance. The apartment room we had was very good - large and airy, and very well equipped and serviced. The hotel is a bit impersonal in its decor, but perfectly adequate. Wifi in the rooms was free and worked well. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, but looked like they were in a temporary space a little bit out of the way. However, the restaurant (Charcoal) lets the hotel down. The breakfast staff were simply not up to dealing with customers - coffee took an eternity to arrive, mistakes were made with orders, and there was a general air of confusion. In contrast, the quality of the food was high and was well prepared. We ate there on one night, and the pizzza's we had were fine if not memorable - the service in the evening was better than the morning. The restaurant problems seems to be organisational and suggest a need for management intervention- with that this would be a good hotel. Its location is excellent, within easy walking distance to everywhere that might be of interest. We would certainly recommend this hotel, but with the above reservations.
