My partner and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Alabama Hotel over the long weekend. Our room was exactly as described online, perfect for couples. It was clean, comfortable and had a lovely window above the bed that offered the perfect afternoon breeze.
The guest lounge area was dreamy. It was welcoming, warm, and offered wonderful sunlight and soft music.
The staff at the hotel were wonderful, friendly and always up for a chat. To top it off I got to try one of the staff's homemade honey with my chai (best ever) & got visited by two lovely fluffy dogs.
We will absolutely be returning, already planning a trip back at the hotel in June.
10/10 - Thanks so much Alabama Hotel.
We stayed at the Alabama Hotel for about a week and first we thought the shared bathrooms could be a small issue for us, but the shared facilities were clean and had no line-ups in the morning. Our room was small but very comfortable, clean and had everything you could ask for. The hotel 'living room' / public area and bar is fantastic and the staff is more than helpful and very nice. This hotel is highly recommended if you are on a budget and are after a fun and friendly environment to call home for a few days.
Tip: Woolsworth is a quick walk down the street. There are many shops there including a nail salon, coffee, and a liquor store.
I like the glass bottled water they offered.
Shower was hot. I never had to wait to use the shades bathroom.
There are stairs, no elevator.
The room was very spacious. It had a fan, fridge, plenty of lights, electrical outlets.
I liked the main lobby area. WiFi worked well all over the building.
The guests looked mature. It wasn’t a hostel vibe. It felt like a European hotel.
Workers were very friendly.
If you do selfies, check out all of the great walls in the hotel. They shoot nicely.
If you arrive late, be sure to get the door code! They use WhatsApp. It saved my life when I realized I was flying into Hobart after 9 PM. The staff got me the check in details within minutes. There was no need for me to panic when I realized last minute that I might not be able to get inside the hotel so late! Bless them.
Love the soap. It’s a very eco-conscience spot.
Place smelled so good!
Be sure to stock up on food. Shops close early and you may be stuck hungry without snacks in your fridge.
Had such a pleasant stay here, great value. Super funky interior, staff are incredibly friendly and offer great recommendations of places to eat, things to do etc. Room and shared bathroom were clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again! Wish I could have stayed longer to properly check out the bar at the reception/lounge and socialise.
I loved the Alabama!
Firstly it was so clean!
The lounge area was groovy enough that you’d actually want to hang out there with friends. Perfect location for us & friendly staff.
Our twin room was a bit sparse - could have done with a chair and a small table, I mentioned this to staff and I’m sure they’ll sort it out, but otherwise it was excellent.
