I had done heaps of searches for hotels in Melbourne before hand and found that most hotels had great pictures on their website but unimpressive pictures and reviews on TripAdvisor. Oaks on Lonsdale was the only hotel I found that had beautiful pictures on the website that also looked just as beautiful on the pictures from people who have stayed... More

Our room smelled. Smoke detectors disconnected. Couch had a massive stain covering it. Then when it was time to go to bed the linen had not been changed and had to sleep on the top sheet. Oaks you have had your last chance!

I stayed with my friend for 3 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment - we were lucky enough to book under the 'Lonsdale Saver' rate which was excellent value for money & meant we also got a complimentary 11am check out. Loved everything about this hotel. The apartment was spacious, modern & very clean. It had a perfect sized balcony... More

Stayed here over New Year in a one-bedroom apartment. The apartment was excellent - roomy, very modern and all necessary amenities. Also had a balcony with table and chairs. It was a short walk to the tram stops, so not difficult to get around Melbourne although it's quite a walk down to the Yarra river and Crown casino complex, which... More

After reading the TripAdvisor reviews, we booked 4 nights during October 2009. Easy to get to using Melbourne Airport Shuttle. Great location/views. We found that restaurant prices were little unreasonable so we walked across the street and had a couple great (inexpensive) meals at the hospital dining room and also bought groceries just up the street at Woolworths for a...

We stayed in this Hotel after checking out of one we weren't really happy with. We got the deal from the internet and paid $277 per night in the high season. The apartment was spacious with 2 king-size comfortable beds and 2 good-size bathrooms but the best thing of all was the magnificent view of melbourne from our balcony. We... More

The hotel is located east of city centre, which takes 10 mins walk to QV. The apartment has all the appliances needed, and it is cleaned once a week. The only cons is it lacks a fitness room. However you can take tram to Melbourne Aquatic & Sports Centre (www.masc.com.au), in which you can do all kinds of sports!

The room was clean & new & had a great view of Melbourne. The studio, however, was a little cramped & there were no chairs. Otherwise, a good stay.

Booked a studio apartment for 3 nights and opened the door to find a very small room with a kitchenette taking up half the room. There is a tiny closet that would fit a few jackets and shirts and nothing more.. although wierdly there is an abundance of kitchenette cupboards - so you really have no option but to store... More

Stay 3 nights in this hotel. C/In around 8PM and no one in the receptionist area. So, a bit panic since my 3yrs old boy already sleep in my wife's lap and we have a lot of luggages. Finally, I rang them and after explain that I've been waiting in receptionist area for about 10min, then he finally comes up... More
