Somerset on Salamanca is a very comfortable lodging in a great location. It's right at one end of the historic Salamanca Place and an easy stroll to the city. The rooms are spacious and offer more than a traditional hotel room. TVs that work with plenty of channels and free WiFi. The facility appeared well maintained and (importantly) the bed...

Great size room in a great location right next to Salamanca. Apartment style room with washing Machine , Dryer, Kitchenette and all the mod cons needed for a lengthy stay. Although the room was quite modern, it was noisy. A fan noise and other corridor noises made it hard to sleep. The price was good for what you got and...

I particularly chose this place as my parents were visiting me and it was a serviced apartment. The dishwasher was faulty, no house keeping to take of the dishes, rooms were dusty, the shower screen was broken and it was exactly opposite of what I had expected. After paying $$$ you expect a certain standard and would not recommend anyone...

Dear beingneha, My sincere apologies to you for the lack of housekeeping standards. This is certainly not the standard in which Somerset on Salamanca prides itself. While we strive to maintain the highest customer satisfaction standards, monitoring our effectiveness can be a challenge at times. We welcome feedback such as yours as it indicate the areas where we can further...

This hotel is in a good location and is nice and large but that was all it has going for it. There was a street light right outside the window, after dark you have to close the door and draw the curtains. Maintenance was poor, check in at a nearby hotel (500m), TV and furniture below average.

From the first interaction staff were friendly and helpful. Location was perfect, great for the markets and walking distance to everything else. Everything in the apartment was comfortable. It appeared to have everything but we didn't cook as there were so many restaurants walking distance away. If you have children don't forget Princess Park is up the road with a...

We stayed in a 2br apartment just for one night and proved good value when compared to a hotel, esp with 2 bathrooms (we were two couples). It is in a great location at the end of Salamanca Place, close to the wharf area and Battery Point. It has free parking so you can leave your car there and walk....

The size of our apartment was excellent, lots of room with a well separated bedroom in case one of us wanted to stay up later to watch tv. The king sized bed was perfect, very comfortable, and because it was really 2 beds together, there was no movement felt by partner. Having two toilets was great and the huge shower...

Two nights were spent here while on business. - although situated in a great location, it is over priced for an average suite; - front door to the premises slams each time people enter and exit; On checking in, we received an underlining tone of patronization and just because u say sire in your sentence Mathew, doesn't mean your being...

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment with another couple and both rooms were well set up with king beds.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was absolutely fantastic. The location which is right next to Salamanca is so handy, walking distance to restaurants and the harbour.
