“Don't let appearances deceive you”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

From the outside, this building looks rather tired and ordinary but the rooms are large, clean and the beds are VERY comfortable. It's walking distance to everything important (Salamanca markets, departure point for MONA and lots of good restaurants), quiet at night, has a door onto a small balcony so you can get plenty of fresh air and surprisingly upmarket toiletries. I didn't give it five stars because the grouting in the bathroom could do with a good scrub.

stayed here for four nights with my partner - the rooms were spacious and came with a kitchenette, a fair sized bathroom, comfortable king bed with extra pillows and blankets, and a large flat screen tv as well as two lounge chairs. they also provided us with crockery, hotplates, pots and pans as well as cups and wine glasses. free wi fi was a plus. there was plenty of parking available and reception were lovely, giving us wonderful tips on where to eat and places of interest. it's also really conveniently located. I really enjoyed my stay here.

We stayed in a Deluxe Imperial Studio room with a very comfortable King bed, large flat-screen TV, modern bathroom, kitchenette and balcony...at a very reasonable price, with great service and free parking...and only 5 mins walk to the Salamanca markets and waterfront.
Free Wi-fi is a very welcome bonus - something the large hotel chains charge highly for (shame on them!). Highly recommended and will definitely be staying here on our next visit to Hobart.

We stayed here for 11 nights in Apartment 103 it was a Deluxe Imperial Studio with a King bed.
This was a lovely roomy studio with 2 comfortable lounge chairs and coffee table.
There was a large desk and chair plus a table and 2 chairs.
The cooking area was a full size sink and glass top hotplates and plenty of bench space.
Saucepans and ,frypan electric toaster and kettle.
Crockery & cutlery and glasses and also wine glasses for 3 people.
The room was serviced every day and white fluffy towels and good quality toiletries replaced every day as well as tea,coffee and sugarThere was an internet connection in the room and downstairs there was a free internet kiosk.
They had a laundry with 2 washers and dryers the cost 2 x $2 coins and they supplied the soap powder.
Battery Point is a lovely suburb in Hobart some of the houses are amazing.
From St Ives all roads lead to the Waterfront. so each day you can take a different route to town.
You are about 15 mins from town and a taxi ride back is about $6.
St Ives is a very pleasant place to stay it is so quiet and you never hear another rooms door bang.
I was so impressed with the door hinge they had that I climbed up on a chair to see the name and it was LOCKWOOD a few other places we have stayed at could fit these to their doors and you would not be woken up with people banging their doors in the night.
The staff went out of their way to help us so we really enjoyed our stay in Hobart

Only stayed one night to attend the Salamanca Markets which were in walking distance. We were given a free unsolicited upgrade to a Superior Room which was lovely. It was so well appointed and comfortable. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but we could leave our car in the onsite car park, we could also leave it there while we shopped after we checked out the next morning. Would recommend this spotless hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The Superior room is spacious with comfortable arm chairs, desk, microwave, equipped kitchen etc. Lo...

Stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor (3rd floor) with 2 adults and a toddler. Hired a portacot for $10 a night which fit in the 2nd bedroom and we could just close the bedroom door (very snug fit(. Should have bought along my cot linen as only a single sheet was supplied which was a tad tricky to place on the portacot mattress. Clean and tidy with modern bathroom and elevator. Great location close to restaurants, bakeries with great coffee and the walk up the hill (pushing the pram) at the end of the day really gave us a workout! I didn't mind being a few blocks away from the action as it was beautifully quiet in the evenings and mornings. And the view from our balcony of the bridge was just beautiful - especially during the evening rain. Thought the $ was reasonable given the amenities.

Well situated , comfortable - we had 2 bedrooms, kitchen & sitting area.The bedrooms have little storage space, & could do with some hooks to hang things on, & a drawer or two..
We were grateful for the wifi plus the terminal at reception - staff were always most helpful.
