We stayed at the Zero Davey for two nights. I have to say: I was not happy at all. Actually, I was almost tempted to press the "terrible" button.
What I was most unhappy with was that our room faced a big and very much travelled road - it was as loud as being in a cheap motel room and just my good old, trusty earplugs helped me getting at least some night sleep. Don´t let the stunning harbourview rooms fool you - just an estimated 4-6 rooms face the waterfront (which will defintely have a great view), the rest of them (besides the Penthouse) are all facing this big road. The lady at the front desk was not very helpful or friendly. Our shampoo etc. wasn´t filled up and the internet didn´t work at all despite 2 days of hardest trying... Oh, and another huuuge dissapointment was the sauna - the size of a airplane toilet! Now you will think: "At least there was a sauna!" But imagine yourself, just wrapped in a towel or so, trodding through a subterranean garage, entering the sauna and starring through its glas door out at the parking places ... Not very wellness-ish, in my opinion.
The decoration was contemporary but a bit coldish - I knew this before we came so I can´t really complain. And my partner liked it. Our plasma screen would have been nice, but unfortunately, at most of the channels (and especially the movie channels) you had this feeling like watching a sudden snowstorm coming over Hobart...
To be fair, the location is very convenient and central. The cooking facilities could save you some dollars and were well stocked. Parking is included in the price (but beware that there are not even nearly enough parking spaces for all guests - first come, first serve! You can park in front of the hotel at the waterfront, but after 8am you need to pay; on Sundays it´s free for the whole day.)
So overall, I would say: good location, contemporary design, but wayyyyyyy to go for a good hotel.
