This is a pretty average property. The rooms are clean and modern. The walls are thin though. We could everything in other rooms. It was nice and close to Salamanca Square, so that was handy.

No toaster or microwave. Winter breakfasts or light meals were difficult. Good location. Helpful staff.

it’s loud, echoing. Doors were slammed often and conversations could be heard through the closed door of those stomping up and down the stairs. In a downstairs room, the only actually fault would be the bathroom design. The floor isn’t sloped for the shower water to run directly to the drain, so it just sits there and puddles the entire bathroom floor. Also our drain was broken and I almost cut my foot on it. I enjoyed the added touch of a beauty light above the mirror. Would of been nice to have a toaster or a microwave in the room. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bedding soft and there were actually four pillows to a double rather than the standard two. The location is absolutely great! Bit loud of an evening being on a main road though. Great walking distance especially to Salamanca. I would stay here again. Pricing was pretty reasonable for the room :)

The location is fantastic for the price and it was a very comfortable room. The bathroom was very basic but it had everything you needed anyway.

The location of the property parallel with the value for money is what we liked about the hotel.

CAUTION -No air conditioning in the twin room. I obviously assumed all properties had heating and cooling - this room definitely does not. We only stayed long enough to book another room at a different hotel. We then carried our luggage back down two flights of stairs. Informed reception we couldn't stay in a room with no air con when It was this warm in Hobart and handed the keys back. There was a fair bit of traffic noise on the top floor also. Clean and tidy.
