Excellent location

Somerset on Elizabeth is located in easy walking distance of the famous Victoria Market (5 min), Bourke Street Mall (2 min), Federation Square (10 min). Also National Gallery of Victoria, Arts Centre, Casino, Etihad Stadium, MCG, Museum are all easily accessible by the brilliant tram network. Buy a Myki travel card and just tap on and tap off. We have stayed in probably 20+ hotels or self-catering apartments in Melbourne over the years--this has been the most convenient. A large Woolworths super-market is located about 400 metres up Lonsdale Street. We stayed 4 nights--had Greek dinner in Lonsdale Street (10 min walk), Italian at Papa Gino's in Lygon Street (5 min walk and then 10 min tram up Swanston Street to Grattan Street), Chinese banquet in Chinatown (10 min walk up Little Bourke Street) and wonderful Turkish banquet at Alaysia in Brunswick (tram in Elizabeth Street up Sydney Road 25 min)--such a variety and so easily accessible with a Myki card. Also walk a block to Swanston Street and catch a tram to St Kilda via Fitzroy Street--visit Sunday craft market on the Esplanade, or Acland Street for coffee and cake--unbelievable!!

weekend break in Melbourne

I just love this hotel for its location. The room was very pleasant, my only regret is that I only had one night in Melbourne in which to enjoy it.

A week at the tennis

Hotel is in a fantastic location to access all that Melbourne has to offer. My only complaint is the carpet and furniture in our 2 bedroom unit was very stained and therefore felt dirty. The washing machine combined dryer is extremely uneconomical and perhaps management should look at replacing the combination unit with 2 individual units as the power that is consumed to dry clothes in the combi unit is crazy.

Perfect 4 night stay

Very good reception staff - EVERY day! Room service attendants - friendly. Room very clean. Excellent location for a city break/stop over/weekend - next door to the Emporium! Easy to get to Skybus, trams, Victoria Market etc - great having a spa at the end of a hard day of shopping! Will certainly return.

Everything is close! A tram ride to anywhere or WALK (as I did). GPO - great restaurant (good service and food) less than 5 mins walk away; China Town close - theatres easy to get to. How good does it get?

Comfortable stay in great location

The Somerset is a great option for families looking for good value right smack-bang in the centre of Melbourne. The location was perfect: close to basically everything, a block from the trams of Swanston Street and around the corner from the delights of Chinatown. Hard to fault anything about the hotel. It was a good-sized apartment for 2 adults and 2 small children. And the staff were excellent: attentive, friendly, and we checked in and out while barely breaking stride.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The tourist info booth in Bourke Street Mall had good ideas on what was on for kids, and had some good discount vouchers to share
