The two-bedroomed apartment was comfortable and spacious. The location is great, right in the centre of the city. It is ideal for transport and shopping. To attend the Australian Open Tennis it is the best. I have stayed in various hotels over the years but have been coming here three years in succession. The tram stop is right in front of the door, the train station is within walking distance and taxis are everywhere. It is surrounded by shops and convenient stores, post office, cafes, take-aways, restaurants and supermarkets are all close by. The hotel even held a drinks and snacks party for their Australian Open guests (and I suppose including the non-tennis guests) during the event. A nice touch.
The staff are friendly and our 2 x newspapers were delivered at the room door each morning. As women travelling together we felt safe and very much at home at the Somerset.
We'll be back next year.
