“Great getaway for couples/family in Melbourne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Getting a good deal for 3 nights made this a value for money place to stay. Good location on Elizabeth street for accessing most of Melbourne city attractions. Trams on the doorstep were a little noisy in the mornings. Our 2 Bedroom apartment gave each couple space in addition to the ample shared living room, kitchen and dining area (Would be plenty of room for a family). A full kitchen with good quality appliances could also be used to self cater and save more on costs. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were fantastic. More attention to general cleanliness would have been appreciated: crumbs on the table, fluff and paper on the floor. Apart from this no other complaints.

Room Tip: If a light sleeper maybe ask for a room at the back of the building due to the trams, especially if...

Stayed here for 9 nights in late June thru early July. Room is spacious and clean. I have no major complaints and only praises for the service staff, especially Abdul, Pandooka, Erangi, Betty and Paul. What the hotel lacks, the service staff more than make up for it. Great job Florence. Only complaint I have is the hotel has no Wifi. They have ethernet cable provided and to get connected is quite expensive. Wifi is quite basic for most hotels. Strange they would missed out on that.
Overall I had a great stay and getting around is quite easy because the location is right smack in the central area. For those who don't mind walking a lot, this is it. That's the best way to explore central Melbourne anyway. Hooked up the Wifi and this service apartment will be a great stay for short and long term. Oh another thing, they can do with a change in their complimentary beverage in-room. The tea is not bad but the brand of coffee they use sucks. And a little more variety wouldn't hurt.

You can hardly feel any warming air coming out of the vent. It is super cold in the room without a heater.... Stay away from this place. Radisson is way way much better.

I recently spent 3 nights at somerset and have nothing but praise for the apartment and the staff.The room was clean and spacious and any problems I had were rectified straight away ensuring my stay was as comfortable as possible.The apartment is centrally located and travelling alone i felt very safe in the surrounding areas at night.Breakfast was also included in the deal which was excellent every morning.

My daughter and I took a shopping trip to Melbourne and chose this property because of its location . Unfortnately we were not told about the major building construction going on next to the property and we were woken each morning at 7am by the noise of the construction site.

Stayed in the 2 bedroom apt. Location was good, near to free tram n bus for holiday. Chinatown was just a stone throw away, which was plus. Cleanliness could b better tho. Dust could b seen on tv stand n screen. With the weather being cold, a nice heated room would b great but the air condition did not work well n did not really warmed up as instructed.

I stayed on a tenth floor room - spacious, perfectly pleasant, and good value thanks to an online special. Unfortunately my stay was made a lot less pleasant by the noise from the busy street below, which made it hard to sleep - I heard every tram, car, and even the sound of horses hoofs at one stage! An extra layer of glass would have made for a much more enjoyable stay. As it is, I'd hesitate to stay again.
