Choose your style of Hobart hotel
Families, foodies, art aficionados, honeymooners, nature buffs and backpackers – Hobart accommodation caters to everyone. If comfort and convenience are high on your agenda, there are several budget-friendly hotels in the heart of the city, within walking distance of all the main attractions. Hobart also knows how to turn on the luxe, with boutique hotels and high-end options easy to find.
Where to stay in Hobart
As a harbour town, you’ll find a good choice of accommodation in Hobart close to the water, such as the stylish 4.5-star Wrest Point Hotel right on the marina. There are also plenty of hotels in the CBD, from the budget friendly to the very top end, amongst which you’ll find the 3.5-star Travelodge Hobart and 4-star Mantra One Sandy Bay Road. One of the most historic hubs in Hobart is Battery Point, framed by sandstone cottages and located immediately south of the city. Joined to Salamanca by a stone stairway and leading down to Sullivans Cove, Battery Point is a convenient and charming suburb around which to centre your stay.
Best time to stay in Hobart
The seasons create a different feel around Hobart, and timing your holiday with the things you enjoy is the way to go. Summer is the busiest time of year, during which Hobart has the popular Taste of Tasmania festival. Winter is the time to join the locals at some of Hobart’s best-known festivals such as Dark Mofo or the Festival of the Voices. Autumn is spectacular, with calm sunny days, crisp evenings and a dazzling array of reds and golds in the leaves of the trees, and is a perfect time to visit if you love touring or walking. Spring sees the return of warmer weather and longer days, as the gardens in Hobart bloom.
Getting around Hobart
Hobart is a fairly compact city and if you’re staying around the CBD, along the waterfront or within Battery Point, you can most likely get around easily on foot. If you’re staying in Sandy Bay, West Hobart, North Hobart or beyond, you will probably find the best way to get around is to hire a car or catch a taxi. With so many natural attractions outside the city, hiring a car in Hobart is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to get around.
