Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This was my second stay there. I love the industrial feel and the mix of old and new. Great location too much mutes away from the waterfront. Service was friendly. Internet was the fastest we've had in the island.
We had a wonderful experience at the Old Woolstore. Our apartment-style room was comfortable, spacious and immaculate. The staff were consistently friendly and helpful. Our only problems with the room are small ones: the coffee press was tiny (could barely get 2 serves), the serving ware was meager (2 plates, 2 cups, 2 forks, etc.) and the dryer was temperamental (it would only work if we banged on the bottom of the dryer door). This is a great place to stay if you want easy walking access to the docks and old parts of Hobart.
Incredibly friendly staff, fantastic and very well priced restaurant and bar (locally sourced high quality fare), free parking and (strong) WiFi. Extended our stay here after having such a wonderful experience. Will absolutely return!
Think you'll be in an old woolstore? Unlikely. You're going to be in a new, soulless wing. I was assigned a room near the lift & cleaners, but after request was moved... to near the main road. The room was large, but the bathroom small. Staff were friendly. Location was OK but not great.
The hotel is average. Nothing bad. But the location is good. A 15 minutes walk will take you to the Salamanca Market.
The hotel is in the city's warehouse district, which has been spruced up. It's within a few blocks of nice restaurants, a grocery shop, and pharmacy, plus about 15 minutes' walk to the waterfront. Internet isn't free, it's $5 per 24-hours, renewable with a new code from the front desk each day. Parking was adequate but a little tight in an area behind the hotel. We never got shut out but a couple of times we took the last spot. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen and bath were more than adequate in size and amenities. Front-desk staff were aloof but got the job done. The cleaning staff (mostly Filipina it seemed) were consistently friendly, smiling and belting out a hearty "good morning" when spoken to. Overall it's a good hotel, and I would not hesitate to stay there again.
