We arrived in Melbourne for a 3 day stay after our tour by car from Sydney. Unfortunately the room assigned to us did not have a bath - as wss requested. I discussed this with the staff at reception and was treated politely and upgraded. The hotel is within walking distance of the CBD and the trams. Parking is available... More

Here is the list: -The room was very small. -There was not even a single chair in my room. -The sheets did not fit the bed. -The heater was so noisy I left it switched off. -There was a frequent draft blowing...

We have just spent an enjoyable 2 night stay at Oaks on Lonsdale. The one bedroom apartment was quite spacious and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and there was hardly any noise apart from some dumping of bottles somewhere in the area a few times at night. Our apartment overlooked the rear of the property and the view,... More

It was smaller than I thought and I should have booked 1 bedroom instead. TV in the room wasn't really good, it wasn't... More

Great inner city Apartments. Had a 2 bedroom apartment for 6 days.Because we booked as a team, they gave us a really good rate. The view from the 28th floor was stunning and from the Oaks, it's a only short walk to Places like Lygon St and South Bank where there are loads of great Restaurants.

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment and were amazed at the spaciousness of the apartment. We booked through a special deal for $200 pn and found this to be extremely good value. The room service menu was particularly impressive. The location is great, about a 5/10 minute walk to bourke street mall. Overall, the oaks was a fantastic choice and... More

We spent 3 nights in a studio apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean & very well equipped. The only negative is there is no seating space other than on the bed & it was a tight squeeze with two adults & two large suitcases to negotiate your way round the bed. reception staff were very helpful & overall I would...

I stay at the Oaks frequently and find the apartments roomy and clean. The staff are helpful and there is parking available conveniently in the hotel. The Oaks is close to the train station and a short walk from the centre of Melbourne shopping. The restaurants in Spring St are great and you will be spoiled for choice in dining.
