The quality of Oaks properties varies significantly. This is not one of the best. Although the location is great if you are looking for a central location close to theatres and shopping, there may be better options. If you are travelling on business do not accept a studio apartment. There is no desk to work from and the room is... More

We had a great long weekend in Melbourne and stayed at the Oaks on Lonsdale. It is well positioned and close to the major attractions and theatres. Everything is within walking distance and you can also jump on the free city circle tram to give your feet a rest. There are so many awesome restaurants to choose from and plenty... More

A good apartment option if you are travelling with friends. Oaks on Lonsdale offers two bedroom/two bathroom accommodation which most importantly for us offered a twin bedroom. We traveled as three friends not two couples. Clean and with good sound proofing our apartment enjoyed beautiful views of Parliament House and beyond. The two balconies provided a sunny spot for breakfast... More

I was recently in Melbourne for a three nights for the Melbourne Cup horse racing carnival. During this time most hotels charge the rack rate and its very difficult to get a decent hotel for a reasonable price. The Oaks on Lonsdale is in a great location, its very central to the shopping and theatre district and also Chinatown. We... More

I have stayed here twice while on business in Melbourne. Clean, spacious, great views and friendly staff. My only criticism was that I had a lot of trouble working the washer/dryer when I had to wash something. Instructions were not helpful Fantastic space and views in the rooftop apartments!
