Great location handy to 96 tram, city circle free tram and trains from Parliament Station. Had an unexpected view from 13th floor over Parliament House to the MCG, which was a bonus. Nice spacious balcony room. Lovely staff, in particular "rugby girl" on reception whose name I still don't know! Convenience store and small café right outside hotel, easy walk... More

A good hotel. My apartment room was very large with a kitchen, dining table and lounge room. Service was very friendly. About 15 minutes walk from the city centre but close to tram stops. My only problem was that there was no plug for the bath, but this was quickly rectified by staff.

I have returned to the Oaks after an absence of almost two years. The previous stay was in a studio that required some maintenance. I am pleased to report that management appear to have dealt with issues in previous reviews, and that my recent experience in a one bedroom unit was very good. The location is good on the north...

We stayed in a studio room for 2 nights and had a nice view from the 22nd floor. Was a good location for Greek precinct and Lygon St, but does take about 15mins to walk to Bourke St Mall. However you are close to the city circle tram stops that can take you to the outlets etc. Staff were friendly... More

Our room was on the 25th floor and the view from our balcony and room was FASTASTIC!!! The room was clean, very spacious for my toddler to roam freely, the kitchen area was big and everything was provided (cutlery, pots, pans).

This hotel is in a good location - right near the theater district. Short walk into the main shopping streets and china town. I stayed in a studio room, which was adequately sized, the little kitchen space was quite handy and there is a couple of supermarkets nearby to get breakfast supplied. The views were quite good from the higher... More

We stayed in a two bedroom, one bath apartment and it suited our family of four. Very good location. Not fancy, but clean. We didn't have a view, so I'm not sure if there are any at this hotel. Overall satisfactory stay.

When we came in we were welcomed with a strong pungent smell from the washing machine. We were promised a penthouse room but were clearly given something much less than advertised. The 'king' bed that we slept in was just 2 single beds pushed together which gave us the most uncomfortable nights of sleep, the tv in our bedroom's LCD... More

It's nothing flash, but great value for money and lovely staff who were very welcoming. Kitchen was woefully stocked if you actually wanted to cook or even have more than a couple of people eat food. But it did the job for us for a couple of nights.

Thoroughly enjoyed the hotel itself for the location. The room was big and clean. The only reason I would not stay again was the most horrible hard beds. Both rooms were unbareable to get a good nights sleep which was a pity as we were there for 3 nights. If the beds were replaced with soft hotel standard I'd book... More
