“Ticks all the boxes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Booked several nights stay and was not disappointed. The room was brand new, fresh, clean, modern with industrial-style detailing, and well-appointed with a flat-screen tv and iPod dock. It was our home away from home and we were left with nothing wanting. The location was within walking distance to all inner city sights, very close to a city circle tram stop, and we were also the first stop of the Skybus from the terminal at Southern Cross Station. The service was prompt and courteous and the room was serviced with care. There was also a fully-equipped gym on site as well as a large laundry room. Undoubtedly one of the best within its class.

Staying in a studio apartment at this property as I write. Good location with on-site parking ($20 per night). Very well equipped kitchen with full size fridge/freezer, two burner cook-top and oven, microwave and dish drawer dishwasher. Good sized room with well functioning bathroom.Nice balcony with a table and two chairs,

Would definitely stay here again and would happily recommend to friends.

Really enjoyed our stay at Oaks on William - places we wanted to visit were 600m away. (Vic Market, Hardware Lane). Exceptional view over the city for our first 2 night stay (and this was a cheap deal), unfortunately we had a view of concrete walls for our more expensive 1 night stay. Try and get a view - it's magnificent! Will definitely return.

Just got back from 4 nights in Melbourne and our stay at Oaks on William was great! Modern and spacious self contained apartment close to everything. Kitchenette was equipped with all that you could need - even a dishwasher. We will definately be going back to stay when we next visit Melbourne.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms have park views.

My partner and I stayed at Oaks on William for four nights in July 2013. We were in a top floor apartment with a spectacular view of the city. We booked on a discounted rate and we were still given a beautiful room. There was no street noise due to the high rooms

The apartment was cleaned efficiently every day of our stay and the staff were polite and helpful. There are many tram stations close by and we have no problems walking into the city each night for a meal.

Great stay would recommend this to anyone looking for a weekend away that leaves you feeling great.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, ours was breathtaking.
