A veritable paradise for everyone from foodies to nature lovers, Hobart is a city that every Aussie (heck, every traveller) needs to visit at some point.

If you're planning a visit for MONA FOMA or en route to surrounding wineries, here's where to crash at the best accommodation in Hobart.

Alabama Hotel

CBD | Rooms Sleep 2

This quirky hotel comes has a super cool retro fit-out, and (despite the killer location) costs are kept low because you share a bathroom with a few of your fellow guests. There's an epic bar and open-air courtyard, and you're basically in the centre of all that Hobart's city has to offer. Book your stay here.

The Barn

CBD | Sleeps 2

This stunning, architecturally designed (and owned) Airbnb is the perfect base for exploring inner-city Hobart, with plenty of cosy elements for visits during the cooler months and an outdoor area for summer evenings. The 1820s sandstone barn houses loads of mod-cons, including a compact kitchen, wood-burning stove, and gorgeous loft bedroom space with exposed roof beams. Book your stay here.

Moss Hotel

CBD | Rooms Sleep 2

If checking out Salamanca Place and its iconic markets is high on your to-do list, Moss Hotel is your guy. The contemporary rooms beautifully integrate heritage elements, and are fitted out with everything you need (including bathrobes, we love), and there's a garden and bar onsite. Book your stay here.

Deco Apartment

West Hobart | Sleep 4

An ideal base for two couples checking out what Hobart has to offer, this two-bedroom deco flat has views out to the city and over the water, and it's nice and fresh with plenty of lust-worthy mid-century details. You're well within walking distance of the city and Salamanca Place, as well as the North Hobart strip, where there's plenty of action too. Book your stay here.

The Tasman

CBD | Rooms Sleep 2

Housed in an 1840s heritage building, The Tasman celebrates Hobart's unique local character and pioneering past. Just steps from the famous Salamanca Markets, St David’s Park and the vibrant waterfront of Sullivan’s Cove, there are 152 unique rooms filled with original artworks from local artists, crackling fireplaces and island baths. Foodies will want to check out The Tasman’s stunning restaurant Peppina led by renowned Tasmanian chef, Massimo Mele who gives Italian-inspired cuisine a local Tasmanian twist. Book your stay here.

The Bake House

South Hobart | Sleeps 5

Hobart is enamoured with its history, and you will be too as you nod off in this charming three-bedroom home. It's decked out with 1880s antiques throughout, and has plenty of room for relaxing when you're staying in with a full kitchen and living area, and a landscaped courtyard. Book your stay here.

Movenpick Hotel

CBD | Rooms Sleep 2–4

Yep, like the ice cream... Treat yourself to a stay at the Movenpick Hotel, where your booking includes free house-baked chocolate treats in the lobby, and free ice cream for kids. Rooms here have views over the Derwent River and Constitution Dock, and you'll be super close to Salamanca Wharf and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Book your stay here.

Sustainable Cabin

South Hobart | Sleeps 4

If you're keen to explore Hobart's natural surroundings while still being close to the action of the CBD, this architect-designed cabin is a great pick. You'll want to settle in to enjoy the rooftop garden with chickens and loads of herbs, full kitchen, and outdoor bathtub. You're at the base of kunanyi/Mount Wellington, with a walking track basically at your doorstep, and right by the must-do Cascade Brewery. Book your stay here.
