“Budget accommodation in a good location”
Reviewed 29 August 2011

We were prepared for basic accommodation when we arrived at Hotel Tasmania so we were not disappointed. The rooms were small but clean and had everything we needed for our short stay. I would however only recommend a short stay.
There is a nightclub down stairs that is very busy on a Wednesday night. We could hear the music but it certainly didn't keep us awake, it was very faint.
We were disappointed to find that the breakfast that we had included was actually no longer available or an option at the Hotel so be aware when booking that you don't pay for breakfast provisions.
The only other issue we had during our stay was the smoke alarm going off in the wee hours apparently due to the smoke machine in the nightclub. Pack a sense of humour!!
All in all you get what you pay for and for a short stay it is cheap, convenient and the staff are friendly!.

I have stayed at Launceston's Hotel Tasmania three times now. Each time, I have stayed for a week or maybe eight days and they have sliced a couple of dollars of the nightly rate because I have had what they consider a lengthy stay. This place may also be known to some as The Saloon Bar, and contains two bars, a large dining area, as well as a lounge area where you can take your drink and watch TV. The rooms are compact but I don't go on holiday to spend maximum time in my hotel room. The hotel is situated within a five minute walk of the Launceston CBD and you are able to walk easily to many of the shops and attractions. The airport shuttle bus will drop you at the door and pick you up again, and the local zoo (Tasmania Zoo), which is about 25 kms out of the CBD, will also pick you up from the hotel. A free, basic breakfast is brought to your room each morning as well as a copy of the local newspaper. So, knowing that I only need a room to inhabit mainly during the night hours, I recommend this place, though some may find the rooms a tad small. They are certainly clean however, and the staff are very approachable.

The hotel is situated above a hotel, which is rather noisy at nighttime with bands playing, and full of louts swigging schooners or whatever it is they drink in tassie. Rooms are old and tired and need a paint job. Really small too.

Breakfast is delivered at lunchtime, and my sheets had stains on them... gross!

Some of these reviews are really old now, The hotel has been renovated and taken over by new owners. The night club is only on Wednesday night for Uni night with the exception of the occasional band on week ends (5 times a year maybe?) It's only around $65 single a night. Meals in the Bistro are only $6.95- 18.95 Mains. Great center city hotel to stay if your here for footy, or just a place to stay for a couple of nights in between travels.

Stayed for 4 nights in mid December and found it pretty good all round. Was a bit worried about the nightclub but it only ran on the Wednesday night. Went down to it and had a good time anyway. There was no nightclub going on Friday or Saturday. Apparently the other nightclubs in town have taken over the week-ends. The room was very clean and got a little breakfast pack every day. The facilities were good with a TV, fridge, tea and coffee and the meals down in the lounge were excellent value. Nothing flash but really good value for money.
