“Somewhere between good and average accomodation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

Stayed in this hotel from 22nd Nov. to 26th Nov. Overall, could rate this hotel as a 3.5* hotel.

Love the hotel for its location, and room space pretty okay to accomodate 3 adults. Guest laundry at basement was easy to use. Room pillow is good.

Service by staff is okay, but need to be able to give more infos. Like when I asked them where I can take the Red-Decker, where to take the Saturday Hopper Service (Free bus service for tourists), and where I can take the coach to Launceston, all they can tell me is... They don't know or never heard of such service. That is not helpful to tourists especially from overseas. Another thing which I wonder how guests could survive through their stay is the bathroom! Which is so small that whenever I wanna bend down to scrub my legs and toes, I'll have to get myself stuck or almost knock my head against the tap (Mind you, I'm only 60kg!! which is like average size for adults, right?!) So, when 1 of my friend who is like 80kg, she practically gotta stand there straight, not moving anywhere if she doesn't want to bath with the shower curtain touching her body everywhere. This really needs improvement!! Bathroom is always drenched after every bath, which could be dangerous for elderly.

Beside that, is I'm happy to see that they have a kitchenette in the room initially, but was wondering why they state there that their kitchenette provides only a basin and a microwave and a microwave. I thought it might be a typo-error but it's really a basin+ cutleries+ microwave. That's a kitchenette, no stove or electric hotplate provided at all.

So, I would say that it's an average to good hotel in Hobart.

Room Tip: Staying for location, choose this. Ask for higher floors will be good.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

I stayed at the Travelodge Hobart for two nights in November 2013 on a package, a Saturday and a Sunday night. It was the Leisure Inn.

The location is at the corner of Macquarie Street and Harrington Street in the Central Business District. It is served by the Airporter bus for A$17 each way.

I got room 903, which is a corner room with a panoramic view. The view is stunning when sunny and you can see across the bay.

My room was good sized and well equipped with water heater, microwave, dishes, cups and glasses. The lighting is particular fine. The bed was comfortable and the sheets and towels clean and thick. There is a good work desk. The flat screen TV is about 32 inches. The advanced heating-air conditioning system works fine. When the drapes are drawn, it was the darkest room I have been in.

Internet connection is $10 an hour or $20 for 24 hours. Breakfast is A$18.

There are, however, some issues. The shower curtain does not keep water in the enclosure so the entire bathroom floods every time I showered. The hotel knows about it but there is no short-term solution.

There are two small elevators which can make your wait for them rather tedious.

On the weekend the area is not busy. By accident I learned about the Shamrock, a pub two blocks away. The Shamrock serves bar meals, huge plates, for A$10. They are tasty and I ate three meals there. A Woolworth's supermarket is about seven blocks away.

The hotel tries to upsell on the breakfast and the idea of not cleaning your room, for the benefit of an extra hour before check-out. The one day the clean staff came in, she replaced the towels and emptied the waste basket, washed two or three cups and that was it although I opted for regular cleaning.

The hotel caters to tour groups and individual bookings may be difficult.
