About us

“When travelling, you want to stay somewhere that is just as comfortable as your family home”.

This simple wish has been our guiding mantra in developing the Salamanca Wharf Hotel. Situated only a few metres from Hobart’s waterfront, fronting Castray Esplanade and backing onto the historic and famous Salamanca Place, you really couldn’t choose a better spot to drop anchor in Hobart.

Salamanca Wharf Hotel is in the cultural and historic heart of Hobart. It is only a stone’s throw from the harbour, Princes Wharf Shed no.1, where the annual Taste Festival is held, Salamanca Place, home to Saturday’s Salamanca’s markets and the very picturesque Princes Park.

This contemporary self-contained boutique apartment hotel offers its visitors ultimate comfort and convenience within one of the oldest and most beautiful precincts in Australia.

We aim to make your stay with us supremely comfortable with a little bit of ‘wow’ thrown in. We look forward to welcoming you to the Salamanca Wharf Hotel.

Salamanca Wharf Hotel has been awarded a 'Stellar Stays' property, earning a place among the top 3% of over 800,000 properties worldwide.


Lovely apartment hotel in a great location

We spent three nights here in a one bedroom apartment. It is a lovely hotel only a few yeas old situated between two old sandstone warehouses but carefully designed to fit into the streetscape. The apartments had a bedroom, large bathroom with bath, shower, washing machine, little ironing board and iron and heaps of storage space. They provided nice toiletries. Bedroom ah comfortable king bed with doona/duvet but a blanket in the cupboard. Both down and other pillows provided. Good reading lights and blockout blind on the window. The living room looked out over a park - the apartment was at the back of the building. It had a kitchenette with fridge, small dishwasher, hotplates, small convection oven, electric kettle and toaster. There is a small table with two chairs, good sofa, flatscreen TV (another in the bedroom as well). It is all nicely designed - lovely use of local timbers and quite light. Good wifi. There is a cafe downstairs at the front of the hotel - we got coffee there each morning but bought wonderful bread and other goodies from the Saturday Salamanca Market to eat for breakfast. We like walking so the location was good for use - it is close but not too close to the nightlife in Salamanca Place and we could walk to lots of places from the hotel. It is a short walk to Brook Street Pier where the MONA ROMA leaves from. This is a terrific place to stay in Hobart.

Best boutique hotel in Hobart!

We stayed here for the Labour Day Long weekend. I chose this hotel because of the great reviews and the beautiful photos of the rooms on their website. The hotel exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Loft Penthouse - it was so luxurious, modern and spacious, we would have been happy to never leave the apartment. It was so much bigger than our own apartment. It had everything you could need for a weekend away. The bedroom had a beautiful ceiling window and the most comfortable bed we've slept in (out of all the Australian hotels we've stayed at). The location was unbeatable - right next to Salamanca Wharf with a plethora of dining options. The apartment was also remarkably quiet. Don't go past the cafe downstairs for amazing coffee. Great service by the hotel staff on the ground floor and the cleaners were super friendly and efficient. If you want a luxurious stay in a boutique hotel in Hobart, stay here!
