Great location, excellent staff and a clean apartment served us well for our 4 night stay in Melbourne. We were able to walk and explore central Melbourne's myriad of arcades and laneways from our base.

Book this place for my friend family because it located in the heart of Melbourne. Very Good location and easy to access. Easy booking system but the room need to be cleaned properly. Reception should be more helpful....

We enjoyed our stay at the property. Great location with lots of shopping options nearby :) The central location made getting around easy even with a little one in tow. Rooms were spacious. Our little one especially loved the street view...kept her entertained for quite awhile :)

A centrally located hotel with easy walk to shopping/dining precincts, Victoria Markets and Southbank. The room was very comfortable with the added benefits of a full kitchen and washing machine and dryer.The staff, especially Paul the Concierge were very helpful and obliging. Will be staying there again on our next trip to Melbourne.

The rooms in the Somerset were spacious. The breakfast offered many choices including eggs poached to order. The hotel is very secure as it takes one's room card to activate the elevators up to the room floors. The location of the hotel is center to a very busy city and therefore close to many restaurant venues and shopping arcades.

Poor Room Service and Internet speed was not upto the standard of what it is claimed to be and it has to be improved to ensure customer dosent face any hardship during the stay. Appropriate response for the concerns to be addressed in quality manner rather than ignoring the same.

I booked Somerset on Elizabeth for a one night stay in Melbourne after a business trip based on great reviews and pictures online. Check in was easy and staff were friendly. Despite being early I was still able to access my room. Online, the rooms appear modern, fresh, open and light. My room, whilst clean and comfortable, was not what...

We stayed three nights over a weekend in February. The location was fantastic, just a short walk to Bourke Street mall and trams stops. It is within easy walking distance to a variety of good outdoor eateries and restaurants, including Hardware Lane. Coles is a short walk away for groceries, and the walk can be done through an air conditioned...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
