Just to mention I have never written a review on a hotel in my entire life. But for this hotel is honestly felt like I had to write down somewhere how amazing it was. I’ve been in many hotels and hostels, and most of them have a cold atmosphere, or are a bit dirty. Even the more expensive ones. With this hotel I had such a special feeling, like it felt really really good. Clean, kind, and eye for detail. A lovely lobby, super cozy!! Or how we would say in Holland: super gezellig! To whoever who is not shire wether to choose this hotel: do it. You’ll love it. Regards Rozanne
We stayed here for a couple of nights just to get away and thoroughly enjoyed it! Retro rooms are basic bed and shared bathroom facilities but are tastefully decorated and the lounge is a great place to chill with a quiet drink. Very central to shopping and a short walk down to docks and Salamanca. The staff are friendly, welcoming and informative will definitely stay here again!!
Friendly, happy and informative staff really make the Alabama a welcoming and inviting haven. It’s obvious that the owners are truly invested in providing a fantastic experience for their guests. The hotel is designed in a quirky retro style with vintage furniture, indoor plants and an eclectic mix of works by local artists. The plant-filled communal balcony is a sunny green haven above the street. Bedrooms are comfortable, clean and well heated - a necessity in Hobart’s chilly winter. Mine had a faint smell of smoke drifting up from the balcony, but it really didn’t bother me & you can keep the windows closed. Bathrooms are shared, separate for men & women, and very clean. It’s best to shower earlier to have a clean bathroom to yourself, but that’s always the go with shared…
Service with a capital S. These guys are friendly, helpful and their knowledge of Hobart unsurpassed. The rooms are large, comfortable and they don’t have a TV or bathroom. This is completely fine as the girls and boys showers were just awesome. The soap they give you is handmade and smelt divine. We had a tea and hot chocolate in lounge after our dinner. It is value for money and we would stay again.
Friendly and helpful staff, welcoming lounge bar, clean rooms and toilets, great art on the walls.This Deco hotel has been brought sensibly up to scratch with paint, carpets, decor, wi-fi etc, while retaining an old school feel. Great location for visiting Hobart on foot or public transport, having a car might not be so easy.
