I regret booking this accommodation – I have never said that before in any hotel/motels I have ever booked – no matter how small or bad they seemed. I don’t have many regrets in life, but this one took the cake. Firstly, our check-in was an absolute farce. My brother booked two apartments with car parking through the hotel website....

We wanted a bit of time away from hotels so we booked a Somerset apartment for our stay in Melbourne. Elizabeth Street is one of the main roads that run through Melbourne and therefore you are in the heart of the city and all the attractions that offers. The apartment had a king size bed good storage, good seating area...

Great Location,fairly large comfortable suites but very much outdated. Service is kept to the bare minimum although room cleaning on weekdays was perfect. Low cost considering the size of suites & location However a bit noisy from outside traffic as windows are not double glaze.

This place is in a fabulous location very close by to some of Melbourne's main sights. The staff were all extremely helpful and very supportive- this was the best thing about he place.

Fantastic location, well equipped apartments only advice would be to ask for a room away from Elizabeth st, due to road noise if you are a light sleeper. Reception staff were fantastic and moved us after our first night to a quiet room. Overall great place to stay.

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.
