Oaks on Market
Ranked #91 of 160 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed October 1, 2010

I stayed in a studio room for a few nights. It's comfortable and clean, no frills, innofensive hotel deisgned for the business traveller. Tourists are left very much to their own devices, as there is no tourist information in the room, in fact very little information even about the hotel facilities! Studio has a kitchenette but no laundry facilities (there is a space for a machine in the bathroom but it's bare!). The studio is a decent size - get a room on a high floor, facing the street.
They still live in the past. There is no digital television (only analogue channels). There is Foxtel but clearly hotels still think "business travel" is a male occupation as there are 3 sports channels, a news channel and Discovery. There is nowhere to plug in your ipod/mp3 player and no wifi (very expensive broadband). The location is convenient for the convention centre end of town and the street is quiet.
For the price I would probably try somewhere else with more services/facilities who make more of an effort

Friendly staff and overall a good stay. Room service closes at 10pm however, and we could not get spring water. Studio apartment is highly recommended.

I stayed here for a week on business as part of a 4 week business trip. On arrival there was no-one to help carry my heavy bags up a flight of stairs to the hotel lobby although the staff did take my bags up to my room when I asked. The one bedroom apartment was fairly poorly set out and the quality wasn't great. Room service finished at 9.30pm. The area is a little out of the way off Collins Street and on each night I returned after working late, there was a group of men hanging around the alley nearby. I didn't feel particularly safe and decided to change hotels. This wasn't a problem and the staff were accommodating.

Location is perfect for a meeting at the convention centre. It keeps you in the heart of the city but on a street that is quiet. Our studio room was above average in size and the kitchenette was as advertised - well stocked with utensils and stove top, toaster etc. Curiously though, not even a small dining table. Where things fell down rather badly was in the room amenities and in particular the lighting. Until our final day we had to make due with a two feeble ceiling fixtures and absolutely no table lamps for bed or desk. On the final day, they finally brought in two table lamps that seemed to have come from the dumpster. We had to ask for a stopper for the bath and on one of our 4 day stay, the room was not made up despite assurances from the desk that it had. Well we can tell when a bed has not been made or other things put in order. The desk staff were friendly and I suspect at the mercy of too few support staff in maintenance that undermines their best efforts. Finally the internet is not up to standard. Extremely expensive and slow (even before the speed is downgraded after a very small download limit).

We stayed here for 2 nights on a weekend getaway, paid $175 a night for a studio room on the top floor, beautiful views over the river to Crown Casino.
The location is great, close to South Wharf DFO, Spencer Steet shopping centre, the Crown Complex, restaurants - a short tram ride to the Bourke Street Mall and other shopping.
The room was beautiful, spacious, lovely bathroom. Only slight issue was the noisyish air conditioning that we couldn't work out how to turn off.
Staff were helpful and friendly.
Will definitely stay again.

Stayed for a one night business trip. Location is reasonably convenient to the exhibition centre and Southbank. The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was fine. Internet was expensive and poor value. Overall this is a safe option but nothing special.
