Edinburgh Gallery Bed & Breakfast
This funky, art-filled boutique hotel puts an eclectic stamp on an old Federation home, just to the west of the CBD. Some rooms share immaculate bathrooms, and all have quirky, artsy decor.
Mayfair Plaza Motel
The rooms are large and comfortable at the Mayfair – its redevelopment in the ’90s incorporated a brown-brick courtyard that these days is looking rather lifeless and forlorn...
Blue Hills Motel
Before they painted this modern gem cream and blue, it was a stark and stunning white. There's just no accounting for taste...
Customs House Hotel
This deceptively spacious hotel is housed within a pretty sandstone building above a popular (and often boisterous) pub, just moments from Salamanca Place and Battery Point...
Quality Hobart Midcity Hotel
Don’t be put off by the Midcity’s graceless ’70s stance, because the staff and rooms are great, the location’s peerless, there’s 24-hour reception and an on-site restaurant and bar. A good all-rounder.
The original facade was an interesting 1968 edifice, but a recent makeover has ‘modernised’ the exterior and made over the inside with coffee-and-cream colours, dark timber floors, flat-screen TVs and natty bathrooms...
The Henry Jones Art Hotel
Since opening in 2004, super-swish HJs has become a beacon of sophistication. Absolute waterfront in a restored jam factory, it oozes class but is far from intimidating...
Hadleys Hobart Hotel
This National Trust–listed hotel in the heart of the city was constructed by convicts in 1834 and has been hosting guests ever since...
Central Cafe Bar
Downstairs is a classic Aussie pub with gaming machines and big-screen sport, but upstairs are surprisingly modern double rooms with flat-screen TVs and designer furniture.
Venture past the old-school 1980s reception and exterior to discover newly renovated rooms that are surprisingly modern and spacious. The building hugs a busy roundabout, but well-insulated windows easily combat most traffic noise.
Not far from the casino, this motel's recent facelift has given the rooms a sleek designer sheen. The staff are friendly, and the restaurants of Sandy Bay are just a short drive away.
Grosvenor Court Apartments
Grosvenor Court is a curious mix of the good, the bad and the ugly: quiet street, obnoxious tiling; lovely linen, ugly brickwork; exciting leather lounge suites, weary kitchens. The friendly owners lessen any disappointment and make things feel homey...
A youthful energy at reception flows through to spacious rooms and apartments, many with sterling views of Mt Wellington's imposing bulk. Downstairs is the relaxed fifty8 cafe and bar.
Apartments At Woolmers
With spacious studio and two-bedroom units, all with kitchenette, cable TV and video, this is a good choice despite the brown-brick faux colonial coach-house exterior. Some disabled-access units, too.
Best Western Hobart
A fave with blow-in yachties, touring rock bands and business bods, the demure Mercure looks a bit 'prison block' but delivers 140 stylishly updated rooms right in the middle of town, each with a little semi-circular balcony overlooking the rooftops.
Gorgeous Corinda, a renovated Victorian mansion with meticulously maintained parterre gardens, sits high on the Glebe hillside a short (steep!) walk from town...
At the eastern end of Salamanca Place stands this ultra-modern apartment block housing a selection of large, stylish units...
Somerset On The Pier Hobart
These luxuriously appointed apartments occupy perhaps Hobart’s most prestigious address on the upper level of Elizabeth Pier, and come with glorious harbour views and slick contemporary decor. Balcony rooms come at a premium...
Graham Court Apartments
Offering great-value self-contained accommodation, this block of 23 well-maintained family-friendly apartments sits in lovely gardens in the quiet northern suburbs...
The Pickled Frog
This ramshackle hostel fills an old pub on the CBD fringe with party vibes. Cheap beer, big-screen TVs, pool table, slightly homesick backpackers checking out Facebook – you get the picture.
In a former pub (the ever-rockin' Doghouse), Hobart Hostel offers clean, recently redecorated dorms, with good value twins and doubles upstairs.
Central City Backpackers
Centrally located, this maze-like hostel has loads of communal space, a great kitchen, OK rooms and friendly staff.
This friendly spot has a huge communal area, strewn with shared couches, bookshelves and a kitchen and laundry. The helpful owners run regular barbecues to encourage lots of international socialising.
