Reviewed May 25, 2013

Stay in this hotel for 4 nights. The room is spacious and just 5 minutes walking to Crown Casino and the tram station at Flinders Street.
There's total three 7-Eleven shops around the hotel.
The reception staff were very helpful too.

For what it offers and claims this place delivers. I stayed there for three nights in a studio apartment on the third floor. Not great views but the room was clean, modern enough, and comfortable. Small gym and pool. For the price in the CBD it was very good. Lots of good restaurants, shopping, southbank etc within easy walking distance. Ate lunch at R2 which is attached to the hotel and was not great, had the lamb skewers and salad and was uninspired, but it was well priced. Negroni just down Collins Street towards Southern Cross is a good value Restaraunt, especially for dinner. Check in and out was quick enough.

Only issue is the bathroom, appears the renovation of the rooms did not have enough left in the budget to properly refit. The bath and shower are all in one, and if you are not of good fitness and health it could be a struggle getting in and out. Overall though excellent value.

Room Tip: Go high to get a view.

I regularly stay at the Oaks on Market when I work in the city. The staff are always very friendly and helpful and the hotel is well appointed and maintained. The rooms are spacious and I love the view over the river, expecially at night. The gym, pool and spa area are a most welcome retreat after a busy day.

I would highly recommend this place to everyone!

One of the few hotels in the city that will cater for 5 friends in one apartment at a reasonable rate. Had a 2 bedroom city view apartment. It was great as no one had to share a bed. Staff very friendly, minimum of fuss, great price so a thumbs up all round. Great location close to where we wanted to be.

This is another occasion where I wish Trip Advisor had half star ratings as this establishment is above average, but not quite very good.

The pluses:
- Our room was huge, it was a single room with bar fridge, kitchenette facilities and a bathroom. We only paid $135.00 a night so the size of the room was a huge bonus for that.
- The bed was very comfortable.
- We were on the 21st floor and there was absolutely no street noise to distract us from having a good night sleep.
- The breakfast buffet was on sale for $15.00 per person and while not amazing it was a very reasonable spread for the price tag. However espresso coffee not included and the fruit was empty the day we ate there.
- We arrived early (about 8:30 am) and were able to check in immediately.
- The location is quite good, you can walk down the street to take the City Circle line for free but we tended to walk every where as we were eating lots!

The negatives:
- On the first day we arrived the lifts were semi-out of order and I kid you not we had to wait for about 5 minutes for a lift to pick us up from the ground floor. Usually I would walk but not an option on the 21st floor with cases.
- Someone must have vomited in the lifts another night as there was a terrible puke smell for the balance of our trip.
- The shower was over the bath in our room, we are young and healthy but even I had to be extra careful getting in and out.
- The towels smelt a little odd to me, like they were using really nasty washing powder.
- There was a reasonable layer of dust on some of the lesser used furniture (base of desk and bedside tables), the light shades were full of debris and a suspicious stain on one of the curtains (think 'There is Something About Mary). That said this did not bother me enough to complain.

Overall given I usually stay at boutique hotels, I found I missed that personalised service. The room was nicely appointed but the shower over the bath and the general cleanliness let it down. I think Melbourne has better on offer, but the price tag of $135.00 could not be beaten.

Room Tip: On the 21st floor I did not hear any street noise.

Recently stayed in a 2 bedroom city view apartment - 4 women on a girls night out. Great location close to trams and right near Collins Street. The apartment was great - lots of room and was clean with a full size fridge. The "city view" was great other than the fact that the view out of the window was of the building next doors roof - but if you just looked beyond that - the view of the city was great. Will definately stay again - perhaps with the hubby & kids next time!

Fantastic location in the CBD and within walking distance of just about everything. We had a two bedroom apartment which was on the third floor. It very comfortable and well furnished. Our only disappointment was that it didn't have a view. Customer service on reception was very good and we were allowed to check in early. The apartments do not have their own car park but you can use a nearby one for only $10(see reception). The indoor swimming pool was very nice. We didn't use the exercise room or the sauna. I would certainly stay here again especially with a higher floor.
