Or if you feel like spending a little more and really maximising on Hobart’s views of both harbour and mountains...
- Henry Jones Art Hotel A super cool modern hotel set in old warehouse buildings on the waterfront. It features a bar, restaurant and gallery in a quaint old building filled with artwork. Rooms start at around $190 a night, it's worth it though!
- Lenna One of Hobart's most stylish boutique hotels housed in a stunning vine-covered heritage mansion in chic Battery Point. Room specials from about $170 but going much higher.
