Hobart's hip inner-city hotels
Take your time to explore Tasmania's cool little capital city, radiating charm throughout its sidewalk cafes, iconic markets, picturesque outskirts and quaint colonial streets. There are hotels aplenty scattered in the CBD, from budget-friendly to the ultimate indulgence.
The side-by-side Grand Mercure and Mercure Hadley's have you covered for 4-star style and service, with a range of spacious rooms suitable for singles, couples and families. The Mantra One Sandy Bay Road boasts chic studios within walking distance of the city sights, while the Quest Savoy and Quest Waterfront each promise a comfortable stay whether you're travelling for business or pleasure.
Base yourself at Battery Point
Framed by sandstone cottages immediately south of the city, Battery Point is one of the most historic hubs in Hobart. Joined to Salamanca by a stone stairway and leading down to Sullivans Cove, Battery Point is a convenient and charming suburb to centre your stay around.
From bed and breakfasts to manors and more, there is plenty of Hobart accommodation to be found in this eastern pocket. Traditional style meets modern finesse at the 4-star Lenna of Hobart, breakfast is served with a harbour view at the Grand Vue Private Hotel, and Gattonside promises privacy, peace and plush Victorian interiors.
Bed in a luxurious boutique
In the heart of town or tucked in surrounding suburbia, you can always find a Hobart hotel with a decadent difference. A short ferry ride up the River Derwent will bring you to MONA (the Museum of Old and New Art) and the equally artistic MONA Pavilions, exquisitely designed, decorated and decked out with deluxe facilities.
Closer to town, the newly opened Salamanca Wharf Hotel offers 22 self-contained studios and apartments, while the 5-star Sullivans Cover Apartments' rooms range from one to four bedrooms, stylishly kitted out with all the mod-cons. Perhaps the heritage of Villa Howden is more your style, or the ideally located Henry Jones Art Hotel?
