4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Oaks on Lonsdale has large self contained apartments in the east of Melbourne cbd. The apartments are equipped to a high standard. You could easily spend a long stay here. A home from home. There is secure parking on offer, though there are much cheaper car parks nearby.

My room was perfect, very clean and all facilities one would expect in an apartment hotel. The TV is quite small but this was not a real issue. Located near Chinatown so there are lots of places to eat. This is a great find at the right price.

Stayed here for the weekend (24/26 July) and the hotel is on a great location in Melbourne. Walking distance from the MCG and the CBD. Checking in was no problem with a very friendly front office staff. When I arrived in the room there was a dirty cleaning towel on the floor and a long brown hair on my bed.... More

Located close to spring street, these clean functional and spacious apartments are ideal for someone wanting more than a hotel room in the city. I found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms come with a washing machine and cooking facilities. As noted in other reviews the TV is fairly basic and rather small. The heater was noisy but... More

We have stayed here before and found it just as good for a week last June. At under $180 a night for a city view one bedroom, it is good value for a city apartment hotel. The apartments are smart, modern and comfortable, with a balcony and opening windows. Serviced daily, fully furnished and well equipped with cable TV, DVD... More

On arrival for our first visit to this Hotel my wife and I found ourselves upgraded from a studio apartment to a one bedroom apartment which was one of the roomiest and cleanest we had stayed in. 13th floor with balcony and lovely views over the city. We also were unaware how close we were to the Royal Exhibition building... More

I stayed here with friends on a girls' trip away to Melbourne. The rooms (1-bedroom apartments) were very spacious, well-appointed and spotless. I was very surprised with the quality of the accommodation given the price (approx. $140 a night). The location is perfect for shows at His Majesty's and the Comedy Theatre, which are just around the corner (two minutes... More

This hotel is good for location, cleanliness, and kind staff. However, be warned that the "studio" rooms are without furniture other than a bed. No chairs or desk in the room, so be prepared to sit on the bed all the time. It was good for having a small hallway kitchen and fridge. However, going through other parties I was... More

Dear guest Thank you for your feedback. It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy our open plan Studio accommodation. We do have one bedroom apartments with separate lounge/ study areas and a balcony, so do keep this in mind on your next visit as some guests prefer the extra space.

This hotel is great value in the Melbourne CBD. Rooms are fairly impersonal and spartan but we had a King size bed which was very comfortable. Location is great, right near a train station and the price was hard to beat.
