“Best Oaks in Melbourne CBD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Great rooms with views over Flagstaff Gardens, next to Flagstaff station and the free tram. Most convenient location for a traveler, with easy transport. The room was spacious and comfortable with a great kitchen. Great service including luggage storage.

Room Tip: the one bedroom apartment with kitchen and with park view are the best.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Oaks on William last Monday and Tuesday night. Check in was a breeze, the staff were very proper and kind. The place is so new that the elevators still smell like glue and the carpet smells like new haha :). The rooms are very well endowed. We stayed in a Studio park deluxe, and to be honest, to expect a 5 star villa for the price is silly. There isn't much space on the bathroom counter, there isn't any bath... And the general since of the room isn't huge but it is adequate. Once again, for the price, there will be no complaints here. Costs about $6.50 to get to the bottle street mall, and $40 to the airport. The view of flagstaff park and surround us amazing at night. So in summary, for a fresh, clean, well located, modern and friendly staffed hotel... You can't go wrong here :)

Had the pleasure of staying 2 nights in this fantastic property consisting of all spacious studio rooms, a great full size galley kitchen and full size bathroom, very clean we had our own private balcony overlooking the city, Oaks on William is only a 5 min walk to tram stops and Flagstaff Train Station and a 10 min stroll to Ethiad Stadium a great location to everything and great value for money will deffinatly stay there again.

Room Tip: we were on the 15th floor and only had noise when sliding doors to balcony were open.

Lovely new room. Expensively fitted out. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Great view over the parklands from the balcony. Quiet location. Friendly staff on reception desk. We were upgraded even though we had bought a voucher which heavily discounted our two night stay. Would definitely recommend.

This brand new facility is beautifully fitted out and most comfortable. Opening specials are generous, so check them out. Bed, bathroom, kitchen - I could not fault them. Highly recommended.
It is well positioned wrt public transport, however, be careful wrt Flagstaff Station. It is closed on weekends, so you are relegated to walking or using trams.

I recently stayed 2 nights at this brand new hotel and were greeted by the warm and friendly Paul. I had my own room and they even arranged for the rest of our group to be positioned close by, one even next door. We were unexpectedly upgraded to a Park View room which had a wonderful view over the park and to the West, all the way to the horizon, from Level 16. Friends scored Level 19 and were very pleased.

The room was brand new, clean and stylish. From the Melbourne cityscape feature wallpaper to the cool chairs and hip floor-ceiling curtains and planatation shutters. The room had a balcony and you could hear the city sounds when it was open but when the door was shut it was a quiet oasis.

The location was perfect, right on the city edge and we walked to QVMarkets, free tram everywhere else. The hotel will be amazing when the cafe downstairs is finished.
