For the price, the Oaks on William isn't bad. But it's not great either. Plus points are the fabulous views and the comfortable beds. These are fairly spacious apartments. Some items in our room weren't working. These were reported to reception but were not fixed during our nine day stay. Reception staff were sometimes very good and occasionally rather disinterested....

Stayed 4 days for a business trip, 1 bed app overlooking the park. Room was clean, queen bed very good. Parking is well placed in the building, nice gym. Cafe on floor is just amazing with coffee and breakfast options.

Stayed here on a visit from the UK - nice clean rooms and with good tram links into the rest of the CBD and further afield.

Stayed here for the weekend. Good central location - close enough to walk everywhere. Rooms were well appointed; though the views weren't that great from the room I had. Was most impressed with the on-site gym facilities. Great little cafe next door that does a mean Brekkie - straight off Reception.

First visit to Melbourne and indeed Oz. Were given a choice of rooms and opted for a room overlooking the park. Despite having a balcony, it was too cold to make use of. The room was a great size, comfortable and well decorated. Great shower-room with double stall. Kitchen facilities were superb with a full size fridge for the beers!...

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.
