This hotel located in the center in Hobart though you still need a car to go to some of the restaurants and Salamaca Market. There is one steak house located 2 blocks away from the hotel that served quality steak.

Parking is free in this hotel; they would need you to display the hotel "parking ticket" on your dash board in order to enjoy the free parking service.

The lobby and the reception area were tiny however the reception staffs were friendly. Upon entering the hotel entrance though, I had a little problem with the bag because there was no path way for me to roll my bag. I had to lift them up as there was a step entering the hotel. I guess this would not be a problem for most men that could lift their bags easily. It would be a problem for people like me (petite) or some elderly people.

Our hotel rate did not come with a breakfast so I can't really comment on that. The Internet was not free too.

Our room located on the 5th floor where we had a good view. Another design flaws I found was the "step" at the door. To enter the room, we had to step up! Again I had problem with my bag and Charlie almost tripped when getting out of the room. Why can't the room be the same lever with the floor?

The room was an average size with comfortable king size bed. Bathroom was clean and they provide better quality amenities. I love the sink but not so much about the shower. The shower has a glass wall half way and no door. I could not see how a person taking shower without making the floor wet which could be hazardous for other people that came into the slippery bathroom.

The mini bar items were surprisingly cheap. We enjoyed it

Sounds a bit of a trip hazard in places, but otherwise nice. No free breakfast or wifi is a negative, but cheap minibar items a plus. A few pros and cons and good job showing the balance, as May notes.
