MACq 01

Occupying a coveted waterfront position in Tasmania’s capital city, with sweeping harbour views, MACq 01 has interwoven itself into the very heart of the island’s history, and showcasing a proud sense of place here is as much a feature as anything else. Guests here have the charmed chance to transport themselves back in time, as MACq 01 brings some of the island’s previous residents and their personal tales to life, through an innovative – and fun – team of in-house ‘storytellers’, who’ll guide you around the waterfront and property itself. Furthermore, MACq 01 boasts impressive wall murals, artworks and other clever architectural elements to reflect Tasmania’s natural beauty and cultural heritage too, from huge sunset frescoes to wild forest scenes.

The interior design of MACq 01 is certainly contemporary, despite the nostalgic theme that runs throughout the building, and it all works wonderfully well. The lounge, in particular, really encapsulates what this boutique Hobart waterfront hotel is all about with its grand fireplace in the centre of the room, encouraging people to gather around it and share in the art of storytelling themselves. On top of its unbeatable interiors and uber-urban design then, MACq 01 also offers valet parking and butler service, a small but modern gym, and stunning Hobart waterfront views from its five-star restaurant and swanky lounge bar – a perfect combination.

Accommodation Options

Guestrooms at MACq 01 are chic, modern and super cool in design, packing a real punch in terms of style in what can be considered some of Hobart’s trendiest hotel rooms. The colour palette on the walls is kept light allowing bold art work and statement pieces of furniture to do the work for them. Décor varies from room to room even within the same room category, but expect anything from rich blues, warm golds and splashes of primary colours depending on the identity of your room.  Bathrooms are uncluttered refined spaces with a good-size shower and, in some cases, a deep-soak tub. All rooms feature mod-cons including wireless speakers, flat-screen TVs and tablets. Upgrade to a Hosted Luxury Suite for butler service.

Continuing the hotel’s strong ethos, The Story Bar offers a snapshot of Tasmania and her people with historic newspapers hung from the bar, artefacts on display and a number of pieces of art all captured within the modern interior.

Activities and Entertainment

By far, one of the highlights of staying at the MACq 01 has to be the guided walking tours of the hotel, city and harbour. Your guide, or ‘storyteller’ as they are known, will regale you with their extensive knowledge of the island going back hundreds of years right through to the present day. Thanks to its central location, it is also easy to reach some of Hobart’s other attractions including the Maritime Museum and the pretty Franklin Square.


Attentive staff will ensure your trip runs smoothly with valet parking, laundry and dry-cleaning services; in-room dining; and, if you require it, private check-in and check-out. A well-equipped gym with the option of a personal trainer will help you keep in shape during your stay.
