Friendly staff, clean & tidy, good amenities in the studio. New towels straight away when we asked for them, Studio room was clean and spacious although we had no view which is understandable in such a high rise city. If I had paid more than we did for this hotel we would have been disappointed reception felt like the entry... More

Melbourne is where us Aussies go for a tram ride. The free tram is right outside the door, central to the mall, china town, train, markets ect. The bed is a true kingsize, no the twin ones zipped together. Gym on site and you can select the type of view you would like. The Brother Thomas Cafe next door does... More

The hotel looks fairly new. Its very in date and stylish. The room was really nice. The service was also outstanding. Its also right in front of a Tram stop so its easy to get to and from places. If i go back to Melbourne I can see myself staying there again!

Oaks on William was a great place to stay, check in was friendly & quick. Internet was at a small charge but with no problems. Room was extremely spacious. My only recommendation would be to have a room that over looked the park rather than Office Buildings. A small walk in to the Melbourne City Centre but definitely worth it.... More

Booked a great room on last minute.com with a fabulous rate after another local hotel failed to provide care for their customer. Very comfy bed. Unfortunately the room I occupied was not private and I surprised several office workers 2 meters away with an eyeful after stepping out of the shower :-((((

Stayed for 3 nights, I was in a studio with kitchen. Room was of an excellent standard, spacious and very clean. There is no in house room service which was the most disappointing thing for me. Great location, across the road from flagstaff train station and trams available right at your door.

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.
