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...

There could not be a much better situated apartment than Somerset on Salamanca. Really just 40 metres away from the start of the famous Saturday market and close to all the waterfront activities, restaurants and galleries. The two bedroom, two bathroom apartment we had was spacious with plenty of crockery/cutlery/appliances etc. for four people and the beds were comfortable. However...

Somerset on Salamanca is a very comfortable lodging in a great location. It's right at one end of the historic Salamanca Place and an easy stroll to the city. The rooms are spacious and offer more than a traditional hotel room. TVs that work with plenty of channels and free WiFi. The facility appeared well maintained and (importantly) the bed...

Great size room in a great location right next to Salamanca. Apartment style room with washing Machine , Dryer, Kitchenette and all the mod cons needed for a lengthy stay. Although the room was quite modern, it was noisy. A fan noise and other corridor noises made it hard to sleep. The price was good for what you got and...

I particularly chose this place as my parents were visiting me and it was a serviced apartment. The dishwasher was faulty, no house keeping to take of the dishes, rooms were dusty, the shower screen was broken and it was exactly opposite of what I had expected. After paying $$$ you expect a certain standard and would not recommend anyone...

This hotel is in a good location and is nice and large but that was all it has going for it. There was a street light right outside the window, after dark you have to close the door and draw the curtains. Maintenance was poor, check in at a nearby hotel (500m), TV and furniture below average.
