great place for business travellers

Great location in Salamanca Place, close to the harbour, sights and great places to eat. Nice place only thing is the check in desk is at Elizabeth St Pier and there is no check in/reception at Salamanca Place. But the staff will drive you around to your room after you've checked in.

Good digs for two couples or family

A well located apartment close to Salamanca areas restaurants, cafes and bars. A short walk up the hill to Battery Point cafes and restaurants and down town and wharf area (ferry to MONA) all very close. Clean and comfortable serviced apartment, away from main hotel location with parking but with limited on site service etc. -- but you don't need it!

Up the hill to Battery Point bakery and cafes. Also, a simple meal with oysters and other seafood takeaway from the wharf area (salad and sauces available) washed down with a Coal River wine is great value!

Great Location

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.

Somerset on Salamance

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

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Salamanca itself has a shed load of bars and restaurants within a 2 min walk. Ball and Chain is a great steak house with good wine list, and for Seafood head to Mures or the drunken admiral just around the harbour

Bkd this 2 BR apt which did not

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 well located at end of Salamanca

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.
