When I was looking for central accommodation recently for a special staycation with my son, the Quest Savoy Hotel Hobart stood out.
Not only is it in maybe the most central position in the city, but it also has a wide range of room types including apartments and studios. Combine this with a great price and I was sold! We were going to stay at the Quest Hobart Savoy.
Below, you will find our full Quest Savoy Hobart reviews including what the rooms are like, what facilities exist and where you can find the Quest Savoy Hobart Tasmania.
Quest Savoy Hobart Review
The Quest Savoy Hobart Tas 7000 is located at 38 Elizabeth Street on the corner of Collins street right in the centre of Hobart’s CBD.
Across the road is the Elizabeth Street Mall and you are surrounded by dining and shopping options as well as being right by the bus hub. Hobart’s waterfront is a short walk away.
There are 32 Quest Savoy serviced apartments Hobart which includes studios and one and two bedroom apartments. The apartments have full kitchens and laundry facilities whereas the studios have either a kitchen or kitchenette depending on the type.
The apartments in the main building include mini-bar, heating, air conditioning and everything you would expect from a quality hotel.
For budget conscious travellers, there are also budget Quest Savoy apartments across the street. These are much the same as the more expensive alternative but are in a building with stair access only.
Our Executive Suite
This room is great!
Located in the prime position at the corner of the building looking in both directions up and down Elizabeth and Collins Streets, this room is surprisingly quiet. A large 49m2 means it’s also surprisingly large for a studio. It could easily be a one bedroom apartment if they wanted it to be.
On entry into the suite, we found a full kitchen with everything you could need including oven, stove, microwave, toaster, fridge and freezer.
There were mini-bar supplies including some junk food, soft drink, wine and beer. The prices were reasonable for a hotel.
Next to this is the dining area with a 4 person table and chairs before a big sofa which folds out to a double bed. This was made up for us since we requested a twin configuration but folded up so we could use the couch and easily fold it out at night time ready to use.
There’s a large TV and stereo. The included wifi is great. We were able to connect our computer to the TV via a HDMI cord we brought with us and stream content.
Just around the corner from the open plan living is the bedroom area with cupboard, a single lounge chair and queen sized bed. The linen and bed is very comfortable. There is an ironing board and iron.
Finally, there is a bathroom with a large corner spa easily big enough for two. It’s great! There’s also a small range of toiletries.
The Quest Savoy apartments Hobart include daily housekeeping except Sundays and public holidays. The only thing missing from the description online is a desk although that is not necessary with the dining table and chairs.
The room is comfortable, quiet, clean, spacious and well equipped – everything you want from a hotel room. Being self contained is a massive bonus. My only complaint is that there were many windows in our rooms and gaps in the curtains so the room was quite light quite early.
Like other Quest serviced apartments, this hotel focuses more on its location and apartment style accommodation than its facilities.
There is free wifi and the glorious Savoy Baths are located in the lower level of the building.
Savoy Baths is a day spa with heated pools, spas and saunas. You can also get massages and other spa treatments. Guests get discounted entry and I recommend you book ahead for their services.
There is also a laundry service along with a guest laundry room with coin-operated machines, free newspapers, in-house movies and a pantry shopping service. You can also chargeback at some of the nearby restaurants. There is a list in the room of seven restaurants which have this service.
If you are wondering about Quest Savoy Hobart parking, there is parking available a five minute walk away at the Market Place car park and parking tickets can be validated by reception for a special discount. When we stayed here, it was $18 for up to 24 hours of continuous parking.
There are no Quest Savoy restaurants but there are many eating options nearby and the hotel has a chargeback option with some of them. You can also order uber eats, menulog or cook in your room.
There is a full supermarket just a block away which makes self catering easy. It’s possible to order a continental breakfast pack from the hotel as well priced at $12 per pack when we stayed.
Our Quest Savoy Hobart review found a great hotel that I would highly recommend to anyone coming to Hobart. If you are looking for well located, self contained accommodation then it is hard to beat.
We were very comfortable on our stay here. The only thing that might make you hesitate is the lack of onsite parking and the charges are likely to add up if you are staying here for more than a couple of days with a car or if you want frequent access to it.
Still, if you are looking for a studio or apartment stay in the centre of everything with a bit of space, you can’t beat the Quest Savoy Hotel Hobart Tasmania!
