The Henry Jones Art Hotel
It is a boutique hotel, art gallery and gathering place for Hobart's elite; and the Henry Jones has collected many awards for both architecture and hospitality since opening in a former waterfront jam factory in 2004. The rooms in the circa 1804 building are all different, chic and stylish.
The perfect choice for anyone wanting country ambiance just a 20-minute drive from the city, Villa Howden is a small luxury hotel (10 rooms) offering individual service and set in delightful grounds. The vibe is Provence meets Tuscany – with English-style afternoon teas a bonus.
The Islington Hotel
In a quiet residential street on the fringes of the city, Islington offers a striking melange of old and new. In a restored mansion that dates back to 1847 and boasts a new annexe, it is tastefully decorated with artworks and antiques and has an impressive chilled-out vibe.
The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel
Set in an old wool store that was built in the 1890s, this four-star hotel does not look anything special from outside, but is a regular winner of national tourism awards. It is within walking distance of the waterfront and Salamanca Place and has a relaxed ambiance.
Somerset on the Pier
If you like a dramatic setting, the Somerset is on Elizabeth Street Pier, built in the 1930s, and features 56 one- and two-bedroom serviced loft-style apartments with modern fixtures and fittings. It has great views of the River Derwent and is within a short stroll of most attractions.
Zero Davey Boutique Apartment Hotel
From the outside, Zero Davey is one of the ugliest modern buildings in Hobart, but the interior is a very different story. With studio to three-bedroom apartments, all with kitchens, many overlooking Sullivans Cove, Zero Davey is a fun and funky base with comfortable furnishings.
Salamanca Wharf Hotel
A classy apartment hotel at the quiet end of Castray Esplanade but still just a short walk from Salamanca Place and its bars/restaurants, this hotel offers stylish studio and one-bedroom apartments with fancy fixtures, free wi-fi and smart TVs. Well-equipped and well-situated.
With breathtaking views over the River Derwent, MONA's eight pavilions offer arguably the classiest accommodation in the state; right in the grounds of MONA and surrounded by the Moorilla vineyards. Each apartment is decorated with artworks from owner David Walsh's personal collection.
Mantra Collins Hotel
Centrally-situated, modern and good value, this small hotel is a favourite with visiting businessmen and tourists alike. Close to the business and shopping districts, rooms have tea and coffee-making facilities, bar fridges, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks, as well as free wi-fi and a funky cafe.
Hotel Grand Chancellor
Hobart's largest hotel, the Grand Chancellor has position, position and position on its side and there are views of the harbour or Mount Wellington from virtually every room. Quietly elegant, it boasts a restaurant, lounge, indoor pool and gym, business centre and conference facilities.
