We stayed here just for a night...but it was nice. It's a kind of service apartment so you can find the cutlery and oven etc. Staff was supporting, manager suggested us to park the car opposite to the hotel for free (7pm to 7am) and that was safe. My only concern was that they block AUD 75 as security which...

We enjoyed our stay at Oaks for 3 nights. The room provided all the necessary amenities, including a comfortable bed, and the kitchenette facilities provided by Oaks Hotels are always very useful. Seventh floor view over the Flagstaff Gardens, including small balcony, added a scenic dimension. Proximity to City centre, and easy access to Northern roadways make this a useful...

Stayed here for 3 nights and found our room and the service exceptional. Our room overlooked the gardens and a tram stop was just outside. Victoria markets was just a 5 minute walk as was Old Melbourne Gaol. Breakfast in Bro Thomas (attached to the hotel) also very good. Will definitely go back.

This hotel is in a good part of the city, within easy walking distance to the main shopping strip and city attractions. We stayed there a couple of nights as a cheeky weekend getaway from the kids. The apartment we stayed in was refurbished with a very modern twist with exposed concrete etc. It was nice but it just seemed...

I was very impressed by the staff. They were very customer focused. The room was clean with a great view over the park and city. A short walk to the Victoria Markets and the tram is just outside the hotel. I would definitely go back to this hotel,

The Oaks on William is a wonderful place to stay in Melbourne. It is located just next to the William Park and in the Central Business District, just at the periphery from where tram rides in Central Melbourne are free. Nice, modern, spacious and bright apartments, most with nice views. Parking available. Melbourne can be discovered on foot. Friendly staff....

If you would like to be in the city but a bit further away from busy areas...here is the place I recommend. Located in free tram zone, close to the station as well. The staffs were every helpful. Also very close to Queen Victoria market only short walk away. Flagstaffs garden on the opposite also very lovely and serene.

Whilst we would love to do this for all guests unfortunately a lot of the time our Studio Park apartments are fully booked due to their popularity.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
