Wow - the location of this place is great! Right in the heart of the city and close to resturants and shopping. The rooms were nice and big and a much better value than a hotel. They even have a washer and dryer in the room. Would highly recommend this place to a friend or anyone visiting Melbourne.

Oaks on Lonsdale is a fairly good hotel! Good location right around the corner from the parliament building and on the route for the free tram tours. There are a few small cafes around the area which are great for picking up a cheap and tasty breakfast. We (family of four) had a two-room apartment on the 25th floor with... More

These are great little apartments in the business district. I have stayed in the two bedroom apartments on roughly a dozen occasions and have been very happy with the staff, rooms and location. The apartments have balconies although they are not large. They are fully self contained and ideal for families or business travelers.

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.

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.
