We chose the apartments based on location. While they are situated in a great place to visit the markets on a Saturday the property is getting somewhat rundown. They also do not clean rooms on Sunday unless requested which we did not realize until Sunday... Also checking in is rather difficult as you have to check in at their sister...

Great location! Very close to restaurants, the Salamanca Market, Pubs, Waterfront and shopping. Despite been so close to so much activity it is a very quiet and tucked away location. Rooms are really spacious and there is parking onsite. The only thing is checking in is done at a location close by, the first time I stayed that confused me...

Right on Salamanca, very convenient location for Targa Tasmania competitors, easy checkout, already booked for next year! Note that you need to check in via the Pier on Salamanca, about a 5 minute walk. Highly recommended.

Stayed four nights (Fri-Mon). We booked a one bedroom apartment and we pleasantly surprised to be given an upgrade to the larger 2 bedroom apartment. The beds were comfortable and the heating in the rooms was excellent. The kitchen, while small, had sufficient room if you need to prepare a meal and the fridge was large enough for any food...

The pictures look great on the internet. However, the first thing is that you have to check in at another location, so if you don't have transport, you are in trouble. The rooms were sub-standard, very old and out dated kitchen and bathrooms. The fridge only had 3 legs.

We have stayed with Somerset before, this is the first time at Salamanca. The location is perfect, close to everything. The rooms are very spacious and larger than we expected. Perfect when friends dropped in for a drink. We expecially loved being able to open doors and windows to let in fresh air. There is some street noise, but it...

We just stayed 5 nights and loved this place! We were all very sad to leave. Quiet yet so close to everything. Very spacious and felt very homely. Wouldn't change anything at all! Extremely comfortable beds, TVs in both bedrooms and living, and 2 balconies. We also found the interior tasteful and comfortable. Without question will return again.

Great to stay at well appointed and roomy Apartments. Fantastic location at east end of Salamanca Place and the very popular markets. Very handy to have outdoor free parking onsite also. Easy walk around the local arty shops and wharf area and close to the Hop On / Hop Off sightseeing bus pickup.

While this 2 bedroom apartment was in a wonderful location, just walking distance to the Salamanca markets and very close to Hobart city, it was not very well maintained. The apartment was serviced daily and that was very good, but the dishwasher leaked onto the carpet, so we ended up hand washing the dishes. The toaster tripped the electricity and...
