What a great hotel. Large apartment with fantastic sized bathroom. The position is just perfect we walked everywhere. Just around the corner from salamanca and battery point shops and restaurants. Very comfy beds and friendly unobtrusive service. Just right

A near-new 5 or 6 story, fully serviced, apartment style hotel. Quite a narrow building, with an internal car stacker for 14 cars.
Likes: Car stacker keeps your car safe and off the street. Good supply of condiments and mini bar in the room. A good little washing machine / dryer in the room.
Dislikes: Can be a little claustrophobic - the only window is at the rear, with a brick wall a metre outside the (only) glass in our room, meaning there's absolutely no outlook. We paid $295 in October 2013 and got room # 5.....Another annoying feature was the lack of a shaver socket in the bathroom handy to the mirrors.

Room Tip: If booking, I suggest a phone call to ensure you get a second floor room, or higher.

This is a wonderful small modern hotel in an excellent location. It is smart, luxurious and has great staff. We booked a Premium Apartment for 5 nights in October and were delighted with the accommodation. I had specifically requested a room with a bath (not all of these types have baths) and were not disappointed. The bed was extremely comfortable, the lounge/kitchen area was light and spacious and had a very nice sofa and the bathroom was a real treat. It had a deep spa bath and wonderful shower plus generous storage and surface areas. The room also had a washing machine/dryer which was an unexpected bonus.

Staff were very helpful and friendly and the place was bright, fresh and immaculate.

Location is right next to Salamanca Market so provides easy access to all the Hobart favourites but is peaceful at night.

We would return to Hobart just to stay in this wonderful boutique hotel again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back on the second and third floors have plenty of light and our nice and quite.

Lovely location and lovely room but not what I thought I had paid for. I see that a previous reviewer has commented on the lack of advertised water views but the response from management that they, nor any third party advertisers water views is incorrect. I booked through the MONA website which does, in fact, advertise that the Loft Apartments have water views. So, seeing as I was away by myself, the thought of a balcony with views across the harbour was very appealing AND I paid a premium for it. Alas the room outlook was less than savoury. No view at all and in fact you 'look' through perforations in the steel facade of the building. All the while listening to the construction site noise from the site opposite...not the hotel fault I know.
When I spoke to management about the lack of view they reiterated that it was not advertised as such but I told them it was and they said they would contact MONA. A week later the website still is falsely advertising water views. I don't agree that they are not responsible for what third parties write about their establishment. They obviously have a 'deal' (maybe a contract) with MONA to 'sell' their rooms through their website. Its the fact that I felt 'ripped off' that really stuck in my throat.
It didn't spoil my trip and the room and staff were very nice BUT when you don't get what you pay for its annoying.

This hotel is just so clean and the rooms are great. The location is very convenient and just a stroll to the Salamanca markets on a Saturday. I would stay there again with no hesitation and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Book ahead as they are very busy

Enjoyed our stay here very much in an apartment with views of the park. Amenities were quality and breakfasts in the downstairs cafe were definite value for money.
As were there for business, our only real criticisms were the lack of a decent mirror in the whole apartment. Mirrored bathroom cupboards and splash back which was set back was disconcerting as it cut one in half. Just a bit odd. Also, the ironing board was a joke, please get full size ones as you have the storage space. They are so flimsy with a full size iron they are almost dangerous to use on the table.
Very central location and I would stay there again
