“Was not what I expected”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

The location is very convenient to the Salamanca market, and it was enjoyable getting up and going a browse. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. It was the essentials like shower facilities that needed to be improved, as the water pressure was poor. I was surprised there was no air conditioning, even though in September this wasn't really an issue. I would expect hotels at this end of the market to offer air conditioning as standard. While the room is nice I would not call it modern, and this surprised me upon entry to the room. I feel the room may have been overpriced, and was wishing I looked around further before committing.

Room Tip: Look around at some of the other places and compare what they have to offer. Value for money is imp...

We all really loved this location and the rooms at the Salamanca Terraces. We were a party of 5 adults and we stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. This was a dual key apartment with a one bedroom and a studio connecting. There were two private bedrooms with a trundle bed in the lounge. Heaps of room for us although the lounge area shrank a little with the trundle - didn't worry us though. The rooms were clean, well appointed and the staff very helpful. It wasn't that far across the road to the reception at Lenna, just up a hill and I didn't mind the excercise after indulging in the awesome local produce and wines....
I would certainly not hesitate to recomment this dual key apartment!

We stayed here for two nights (Friday and Saturday nights) and it is just the best location. With a guaranteed car parking space with each room, its just so handy to park and then explore on foot as so close to everything, or to take a drive and know a car space will be available upon your return. The one-bedroom apartment was neat and fresh and had everything we wanted. The only down fall was the shower was quite weak, but you get that in most accommodation places these days. Checking in across the road at Lenna was not an issue and the staff were very helpful. We will be staying here again when back in Hobart.

Room Tip: We were in room 404 which only had a view of the hill behind and the car park but least we didnt hav...

Stayed at the Salamanca Terraces and apart from from location, we were a little dissapointed.
The terraces are affiliated with Lenna's Hotel which is across the road and up the hill. When you get dropped off at the Terraces you then have to negoitiate a walk off 100 mtrs up a hill in the rain and dark dragging your luggage with you, check in, then walk back down the road in the dark to your suite. Not a good first impression you get. Although you could ask the taxi to take you to Lenna's reception, wait while you book in then roll down the hill to Salamanca Terraces and drop you off at the entrance (would be a good tip if they told you this when you book the room!)
Rooms were comfy and clean but you get the impression that staying at the Terraces rather than at Lenna's, you are a "poor cousin" and from what we felt, treated as such!.
Only offers breakfast at Lenna's restaurant, very noisy air cond/ heating that rattles throughout the night but great proximity to Salamanca Square with all eateries and local pubs at your doorstep. Wharf and criuses very close as well.
Apartments are all self contained with kitchen and laundry in apartments.
Just lacks personal touch and has no hospitality.

We spent three nights in this establishment and I must say that we were a little disappointed with the lack of space in the room. Apart from that , the room was well fitted out. It was clean and the location was superb. Saturday morning we walked out the front door, straight into the Salamanca markets. Also, it was only a short walk up into the city. The room had large areas of glass which was great for the view over the harbor but the room did get quite hot during the day. The room was on the second floor but a lift made access quite easy. Reception is located in the Lenna Hotel across the road, which was a bit difficult to find at first.

Great spot for waterfront and easy walk to good restaurants in Battery Point.

Warm and cosy, comfy beds. We had two bedroom apartment for 4 adults and 1 child. Only drawback was only 1 bathroom.

Well equipped kitchenette if you wanted to self cater.

I went to Salamaca Terraces through a Wotif booking which helped keep the cost down. Great location for the markets and the rest of the City plus handy for cruise trips. Apartment was well kitted out with all you could ask for, plus the room service was fast and to a good standard! Only shame was the apartment opposite blocking the view to the harbour area, and the rubbish men picking up the empty bottles from the street at 6am!
