Stayed in a one bedroom apartment over an extended weekend for A$164 per night. We were impressed with the amount of space in the living/dining/kitchen area. A high-level air-con/heat pump in the living area worked well, to keep the place warm at night. LCD TVs in both living area and bedroom. Bathroom facilities were excellent, which included a washing machine/clothes... More

Got good deal through Wotif, great location. Studio apartment with nice view. Very small overall, had a well equiped kitchen so you could cook, but nowhere to sit and eat it - a bit of a contradiction of terms. Just a bed, no chairs. I had to ask for a small chair to be sent up. With a bit of... More

We stayed at the Studio apartment for 3 nights, and booked it through wotif mystery hotel, so we managed to get it at 105 AUD a night, which was really a bargain. We were amazed that the room actually had a kitchen, with a microwave oven, a dishwasher, pots and pans, a pretty big fridge, a stove and a small... More

The hotel was in a fabulous location, only 100m from Parliament train station. Plenty of places for breakfast nearby and only a short walk to the major theatres, Greek district and musuem. There is a convenience store right next door for food and supplies. Everything was very modern and clean, reception staff very friendly. My only negative comment would be... More

Quiet location but close to everything. Lovely kitchen and spacious apartment. Excellent view from the lovely balcony. Bathroom is the only drawback. Floor got wet after shower, drainage not up to standard. Helpful staff. Internet access available in apartment but quite expensive. Overall, good. Will come back.

My wife and I stayed at the Oaks for 4 nights during May and enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a studio apartment which was rather small, I would recommend spending the extra few bucks and getting a larger room. The room was clean, the staff was very helpful, and the location is fantastic. The trams in Melbourne can get... More

Melbourne is a very well organized city and this hotel is strategically located - few minutes away from train station, tourists' hop on hop off bus stop, the city tram, and about 20 minutes walk to the famous Victoria Market (a must visit in Melbourne). The staff is friendly and attend to your needs promptly. Be mindful that the housekeeping... More
