Instead of some rest Salamanca we were upgraded to an apartment on the pier. The room had a balcony and was just perfect. This was a real bonus as we're there for "The Taste". Unfortunately the air conditioning was not working and it was a hot day. Staff were excellent and gave us another to room to use as well for sleeping in. They couldn't do enough to make us comfortable. I don't think that I would book this place in summer though as air conditioning does not really affect the bedroom enough and there is no window. Otherwise faultless.

Superb location. The rooms were clean and the service was excellent. There is building work going on adjacent to property at the moment which when finished looks like it will block a lot of the water views the property currently has. Would recommend

Bkd this 2 BR apt which did not have heating working in the living area. Spent apt time in our bedrooms where there was some heat.Rang concierge who advised heating hadd not been working for a few days & waiting on a part for it to be repaired.No mention of this when I checked in at Somerset on the Pier.We should have been advised of this prior to going to room & alternatives provided. Given a small column heater & upright blow heater which short circuited the room so couldn't use that during our stay.Not offered any alternative accommodation or a discount.Told that there was no room service on Sun & that we were given additional linen as a result but none in apt.Only 1 bath towel each & only one bar of soap per bathroom. For $220 pn, I expected more.Gave the hotel this feedback in writing but have not heard from them which again is a disappointment as it shows poor customer service and no follow up of complaints.

Very good on all fronts - except maintenance. There were several relatively minor faults, which should not have occurred with a thorough and regular facilities inspection.

Very well located at end of Salamanca place being the main restaurant district of Hobart. Apartments are modern and clean, but limited in number. The "kitchenette" in the studio apartment was really just a sink, kettle toaster and microwave - thus limiting any cooking to microwave meals only - and also didnt have a dishwasher. There was however a full size washing machine and dryer.

This is without doubt the BEST location I have ever stayed at. From the time I slid the key in until I left was an experience that I would expect now from every site I visit. Words can not explain the immaculate presentation and the fantastic amenities. Comfortable is too short a word!!!! The location is THE BEST, nestled amongst Hobart's Salamanca district, it is worthy of 15/10 as a minimum. I am still flabbergasted after being home for 3 days. THANK YOU SOMERSET ON SALAMANCA. You made my Tasmanian experience worth experiencing. Oh yeah, Hobart is fantastic in a rustic way also!!!!

Clean enough and great location. Absolute pain having to check in at Somerset on Pier and then drive to Somerset on Salamanca. No mini-bar!! Otherwise, parking is generally good (if you get in early) and location is excellent.

A nice and roomy serviced apartment in a great part of Hobart, just a stones throw from the best restaurants and shops in Salamanca. had a room overlooking a carpark rather than the water however. Only criticism would be that you have to check in to their partnered hotel Somerset on the Pier which is a bit of a walk with luggage. And because the names of both places are so similar its confusing for taxis.

Great position overlooking the Constitution Dock. Easy walking to the historic Battery Point area. Best of Hobart's galleries and cafes at your doorstep. On site parking a bonus.

The Somerset on Salamanca Hobart is a well equiped Apartment with Hotel Service including Foxtel. How good is that? (Excellent) It is located in one of Hobarts most prestigious areas, and if your lucky, your room will have a view of the Bay, or of Salamanca's main street with Hinderland views. Highly recommend.

This is the second time that I have stayed at Somerset on Salamanca Hobart and the standards have not dropped. The rooms are very spacious, beautifully furnished and very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a very good location amongst the restaurants, galleries and the famous Salamanca Markets.

I really couldn't fault this hotel. Beautifully appointed and in an excellent quiet position. Just a two minute walk to the famous Salamanca Markets and easy walking distance to CBD, shops and restaurants. Also has off street parking, which is essential in Hobart.
