            Excellent Apartment, perfect location, private and spacious. Have stayed at this hotel before and will do so whenever I am in Hobart.

            Not enough car parks.

          • Group of friends

            The location was excellent close to shopping, attractions and ouur convention venue

            Fantastic location, friendly and efficient staff, spacious room and bathroom. Dryer came in very handy!!!!!

          • Single
            8.2

            closeness to everything i needed to do in hobart

            didn't have enough time to relax and just enjoy the room ...and it was on the pricey side! my problem not a complaint!

          • Family with children

            children shouting and screaming from the inter-connecting door to my lounge room.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            It was in a great location. Close to the city and waterfront.We had 3 small kids so having a TV in each of the bedrooms and living area was great.

            The hot water ran out once and allocated parking, at times, was unavailable.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Location, would have preferred a higher apartment to see the water

            No hot water in the shower !

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. This hotel is right on Salamanca so is within walking distance of the Salamanca area, piers and Battery Point historic village. We like to self cater and to have in room laundry facilities, both of which were available at Somerset.

            Only a minor point - on premises car parking is very tight and limited.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            The spacious and clean rooms

            Having to check in on another pier and it not being stated on our order confirmation.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Location. Clean and comfortable.

            Was unhappy with the non-refundable condition and was nervous to book it. I think a fee within 48 hrs of cancellation is fairer.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            Spending the day at Salamance Markets, looking at all the great local produce and hand-made goods for sale. People were so friendly and the atmosphere very inviting. We went to Elizabeth Pier, partaking great food and wine at T/42%, a bar-restaurant. Worth a visit.

            We had a small child in our party and they tried to charge $50 a night for the extra single bed, which I found unacceptable. I refused to paye seeing I was told it would only be $10 per night. Televisions are old boxes which I find hard to accept these days when plasma T.V's are so cheap. Noise from other tenants leaving early in the morning was a major problem. No regard for others at all. Hardly the hotels problem I realise but it should be mentioned to foreign tourists.

          • Couple
            7.8

            Location.

            Would have been better with a view but no biggie.

          • Single
            8.2

            close proximity to restaurants and Salamanca galleries.

            No flat screen digital TV

          • Couple
            4.2

            Close to shopping precinct.

            The room was out dated, it also smelled of cigarettes. 1.5 stars. Corridors were filthy, smelly and dark.
