One of the things I like most about staying in apartments is that it gives the feeling of being home, or a guest at a friend's place rather than a hotel. That's how I felt when I stayed in a one bedroom apartment at the Oaks Lonsdale. The apartment was modern, nicely furnished and well appointed, everything in the kitchen... More

I stayed for a 6 nights in a one-bedroom on the thirteeneth floor (halfway up the tower). It was on the north side (sunny, but afternoon intensity blocked by the mammoth tower across the street). The kitchen facility was well equiped, and the small grocery next door had all I needed for breakfasts and lunches. The coffee system was a... More

Large rooms and great location. Close to theatres and shops. One bedroom apartment had lots of room and has 24 hour reception. I will stay here again.

Overall, a good apartment well located in Melbourne. A couple of warnings though. If you think you'll get views like those shown on the Oaks website, forget it unless you're prepared to pay a premium price. The 2 bedroom apartments only seem to have windows in the lounge and master bedroom; everywhere else is pretty dark and dingy with no... More

I booked this Hotel online without any previous knowledge of the Hotel. I had read all sorts of comments about it but it seemed to be good value for a Two Bedroom Appartment. We were pleasantly Surprised with our Accomodation from start to Finish. Firstly, our appartment was huge- as big as many houses I've visited, and was fully equipped... More

We stayed at the Oaks on Lonsdale for two nights at a very, very reasonable rate. We drove in from North Williamstown and Melbourne was chaotic by comparison, but reception was very pleasant and let us park our car in the secure carparking (at $20 a night) early. One thing that did surprise us was how poorly planned the carparking... More

We stayed two nights at the Oaks on Lonsdale in Melbourne and would not stay there again. The apartments are clean and attractive, the service was fine, and the location is terrific, but the poor air circulation in the apartment was almost enough to drive us out. It was warm in Melbourne and very warm in the apartment, but the... More

We booked a one bedroom apartment which had a very spacious living/ dining area and kitchen (great when you are traveling with kids). The bathroom also had a good size and contained a washing/ drying machine. Cleanliness however was an issue. The floors where sticky and had dirty spots everywhere. Same thing with sofa and chairs. Bathroom cleanliness not convincing... More

We were at Oaks on Lonsadale during the second week of October, having good time in spite of the weather. The hotel is nice and room are comfortable, even i found very disappoiting not to have a table in our studio room! We had to have breakfast and lunch standing or siting on the floor. Then washing machines are not... More

Often stay at Oaks on Lonsdale when in the city for work. Staff always friendly. Impeccable cleanliness of rooms and hotel in general. My tip is don't go for the studio rooms unless you don't plan on spending more than a few hours in there as they are very small. This place is one of my faves in Melbourne. Also... More
