Recently spent 3 nights in a Studio Unit, while attending a weekend conference nearby. Our room was on a high floor with views across the city. Location is definitely the hotels strong point. It's 100 Mtrs to the Parliament train/ tram stop, which can get you anywhere cheaply with a Myki pass. Rooms are fairly basic and if your looking... More

A Pacific Islander travelling to Melbourne at the time that I did was not a good idea. But staying at the Oaks was such a great experience. Very conveniently located. Close to eateries and shopping. The room had a separate living room and kitchenette which was very convenient. Convenience store also 1 minute walk for those late night cravings.

Stayed for 2 nights.....5am arrival. Check in wasn't until 2pm but staff were accommodating and we were in our room by 11am. 2 bedroom apartments are spacious and comfortable.-Lucky enough to get a great deal for this apartment. Pays to look around for specials. The hotel is just on the edge of the CBD.

As I was staying in Melbourne for a week for work, I really appreciated the space of having a living room and kitchen, as well as a bedroom! Laundry facilities in the room would also be useful long longer stays. The 1 bedroom apartment I had was recently refurbished - other rooms are not. Staff were helpful, even if a... More

I have found that the Oaks brand provides very good quality service apartments. Simple, clean and very comfortable stay during XMAS/New Year period. 1 bedroom apartment with all the necessaries. Kitchen, lounge, dinning. Stayed at the Lonsdale St premises which was slightly outside the main city hub of Bourke st etc. However still a comfortable 10 mins walk or tram... More
