Room was clean and spacious but rather uninspiring. No direct heating or cooling in the bedroom, only the living room. Did have balcony which 26 stories up you needed to not be scared of heights. I would stay at quest next time which is 10 meters down the road.

On arrival our room was not ready. The second bedroom similar to a storage room . Very dismal. Location was great. Accessible to all sights in Melbourne . Our room could have done with a coat of paint. The walls were quiet grubby.

We chose this hotel as it was close to a restaurant we were dining at. The special price through the hotel's website was worthwhile. The studio apartment had a separate bedroom and faced into a light well, overlooking apartments next door. Not really a problem for us for one night. Plenty of cupboard space. Reception staff were helpful and friendly.... More

Well at the last minute needed to stay in the cbd. This place is close to everything and the prices very reasonable for what you get. The rooms were immaculate and Vishnu at reception was an absolute delight. So genuinely friendly and helpful. I usually stay at another hotel but will be using this again for sure.

We have stayed at other Oaks hotels but this is my favourite. Very well priced for the area - walking distance to restaurants, bars and shopping and close to some of my favourite spots (Melbourne museum, Carlton Gardens etc). We have stayed a couple of times here and choose the one bedroom with city view. Could be improved by aircon/... More

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
