Pros: right in the middle of the CBD, clean and tidy 2 bedroom unit with full kitchen. Wonderful staff who go above and beyond to assist you with anything you need. You can have breakfast on site, however we did not so I cannot say how it was. Cons: street noise may both some people but you are staying in... More

Perfect location in the city with close proximity to almost everything - eating joints, china town, malls, train station, Queen Victoria market. The room is comfortable and well equipped. I would recommend it for both business stays as well as with family.

I'm a convert, staying in a apartment style room IS the way to go. The Somerset, has to be in one of the most convenient locations in Melbourne, trams across the street, The Emporium in the same building, Hardware Lane bars half a block away. But the biggest plus is having a stove, fridge, sink, dishwasher and especially a washing... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Somerset in April 2015. We found the location great and the staff extremely friendly. The room was clean and tidy however was a little dated. The free wifi and papers were really appreciated. All in all a good value for money hotel in central Melbourne.

Spent the weekend in Melbourne staying at the Somerset. Location wise, the Somerset is in an enviable position, dead set in the middle of Melbourne, walking distance to shops and dining. The staff are very attentive, acknowledging you every time you pass them and on one occasion when I was leaving the hotel and it was raining, the front desk... More

We stayed three nights and were very happy with the location in the centre of town. We were in a one bedroom apartment enjoyed the amenity of being able to eat in if we chose. Nice spacious lounge area and reasonably well supplied kitchen. Good for a short stay in a fabulous city.

We stayed in a one bedroom for three nights. The room was large and had all the amenities. We chose this hotel because it was the only one that was centrally located with a washing machine in the room. The front desk employees were very helpful and were able to check us in an hour early even though they were... More

We recently stayed 9 nights in an executive 1 brm apartment. My 15 year old son slept on a trundler bed in the lounge and my husband and I had the bedroom .It was very spacious, with a washing machine, small kitchen and a dishwasher. The apartment was a bit noisy at night as there was no double glazing. We... More

The two bedroom apartment was out dated but neat. Curtains and blinds needed repairing and main bedroom was small. The location of this apartment was great for shopping eating out and football. There was a car park on level 4 with cars driving past our window which made the apartment a bit noisy during the night. If you love shopping... More

One can even walk to the Federation square, Flinders street railway station and Eureka Towers. The rooms are clean and tidy and bed comfortable. The furniture in the apartment we... More
