Located at the Spring St end of Lonsdale Street, close to Theatres and Restaurants and with a small supermarket almost next door. The reception staff were polite and helpful, and the 1 bedroom apartment in which we stayed was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable, although not much in the way of warm blankets was provided, which meant... More

This apartment has everything you need: kitchen, washing machine, large living room... The only t hing I dislike is that they do not have restaurant there. But it is not a problem becasue it's close to Melbourne Central and some good restaurants. I only stay in Melbourne for 03 nights, too little time for me to enjoy the beautiful sites... More

Located just by parliament and within easy access of restaurants, pubs, bars, theatres etc, a good spot overall. Security was fine, the room tidy and clean. I didn't use the internet in the end but in light of other people's comments to clarify its 55 cents a minute so $5.50 for 10 capped at $10 for 60 minutes. Go over... More

Booked this hotel when staying in Melbourne CBD to see a concert. The apartment was very good value @ $143pn at the time. It was on one of the higher floor levels & the staff had taken on board my request for a quiet room away from lifts, etc. The kitchen was complete with everything we needed to be able... More

Very impressed. I requested a high floor as suggested on trip advisor and was on the 22nd floor and loved it.Great to be sitting on the couch early of a morning and to look out and see hot-air balloons and look down at the trams rattling up and down the street.Fantastic location. Used the Parliament Station daily. I would buy... More

A bit disappointing. We actually changed our original booking to stay at this hotel following a recommendation. I think we should have stuck to our original plans. Whilst the apartment was "spacious" it was "spacious" in all the wrong areas. The bedrooms were very pokey - to the point you had difficulty in closing the door in the main bedroom.... More

We were at this hotel on an overnight delay in Melbourne as a result of the ash cloud, so our stay was brief. Overall we were really happy and we would stay there again. Pros: 1. Fantastic comfy king bed with quality linen 2. Spotlessly clean 3. Friendly and efficient service - welcoming, happy, courteous etc. 4. Big windows with... More

Stayed at Oaks for a theatre trip. Ideally located around the corner from The Comedy Theatre. Room was on the smaller side but was clean and comfortable. There was also a kitchenette and actual cutlery and crockery (which you sometimes don't see in such apartment-hotels). No free wifi - minus. The major thing that we noticed was the lack of... More
