Ibis Hobart Hotel Review is part of the TPOL Down Under Trip Report.
Hobart is expensive. From renting a car to going to a museum (see Museum of New and Old Art (MONA) Tasmania: What the £µ¢&!). The hotels were not a bargain either. Unfortunately, there were not points hotels, leaving me to use the few precious dollars I have to my name. Like the rest of the trip, I started searching for hotels upon arrival. This is a terrible, stressful strategy. While it worked out in Melbourne (see Aura Hotel Melbourne: Flinders, Flinders, Flinders!), I didn’t have much luck in Hobart. Many of the bargain hotels were closed for late arrival check-ins. I ended up going with ibis because it’s a brand I know and because it is located in the center of the city.
The reason to stay at ibis hotels is because they are cheap. Rates are often less than $100 a night. This one was not. For $128 a night, here’s what I got.
The room looks like a typical aloft.
I had an accessible bathroom because the other rooms did not have a view.
This is the view I would have missed?
There’s nothing special about this ibis, including the price. Paying $100 a night here, Darwin, and other cities throughout this TPOL Down Under added up to a small fortune. If you’re going to Hobart, I recommend selecting the cheapest hotel option. There’s not much to do in the city anyway (see What to Do in the Citaaay, City of Hobart). Alas, it’s what I had to add another ‘country’ to the list of places I’ve been.
