“Very comfortable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Helped by fantastic female staff member. Stayed for two nights for both business and relaxation ( 2 nights away from our own busy motel). Joined up as a member on Internet and saved a few dollars. Parking on site, very clean modern room, great beds and pillows. The sky high rooms have great city views. Thank You Oaks had a great couple of days off.

Stayed July 2013, traveled on business

Stayed at Oaks as have not been there before and also needed somewhere with a car park . Good location, only a few blocks to Melbourne central or QV if you want supplies at Coles or Woolies. Free circle tram stop is only a few minutes walk away over Spring St, otherwise only about 20-25 min walk to Fed square. Have stayed in quite a few apartments and hotels and this one had one of the best (king!) beds I have slept in. Had a 2 bedroom apartment on floor 24 with great views towards MCG. It is also close to eating places. Greek precinct, china town, and further down we at Pomodoro and also Mrs Parmas just in lane behind us. Car park is tight , we have a Honda CRV and managed OK but wouldn't want to have anything higher or longer to manouvre.

Room Tip: If staying in apartment try and get floors 20 and above if want to get views

Stayed here for 2nights as part of my Lions rugby tour. Normally I stay in the Southbank area of Melbourne but enjoyed my stay here at the Oaks. Was in a studio bedroom on a high floor - it was spacious with everything and more that I needed for my short stay. The Oaks is in a good location and Melbourne is an easy walkable city. Great to have onsite secure parking for my stay at only $20 it was reasonable pricing for the city centre location. Plenty of places to eat and drink in the area on Exhibition Street. Good value accommodation.

Recently stayed for a few nights during the week found the Location very handy even a bus stop at the front and walking distance to most cbd attractions. Pleasantly surprised with an upgrade to a one bedroom suite, great views, clean room and a comfortable bed. Look forward to our next visit there. We used advice from tripadvisor members and asked for a high floor great advice thanks.

Room Tip: request high floor.

Perfect Location !!
Spotless Rooms ( compliments to housekeeping staff) Comfortable beds , well equipped kitchen in the apartment and the as for the In - Room Dining... it is to die for !! Hot , Fresh and Delicious cant recommend highly enough. The reception staff were so friendly and nothing was to much trouble, even the maintenance man I came across in the lift was friendly. The business service area is great and well my stay was faultless. Highly regarded hotel

We booked this accommodation via Trailfinders and it may have been due to this that we were given a one bedroom apartment upgrade from the studio apartment we had booked.
The hotel itself is in a good location near to the Exhibition Centre and Museum.
The trams are also at the top of Lonsdale Street which is only a short walk away. The free circle route trams are an excellent way of getting round the main parts of the city. There is also a great tourist bus (hop on/off type) which takes 90 minutes for the complete circle.
It was disappointing that it was an additional cost for wifi at the hotel.
There are a number of nice cafes and small restaurants nearby but they do all seem to close early as they appear to cater mainly for the local businesses and offices within their immediate vicinity ie breakfasts, lunches

Thank you greatly for your feedback on your stay with us here. I am glad you were able to enjoy the spaciousness afforded with your complimentary upgrade from the more compact studio apartment to the one bedroom as this is rarely possible due to demand. It seems like so many guests before you, the ideal location of Oaks on Lonsdale has struck a chord.

My daughter and I stayed here while in Melbourne. It is very central and convenient in many ways. It has an IGA very close, cafes for Breakfast over the road and I chose it because the show we wanted to see was at the Princess Theatre which is literally around the corner. It was lovely and clean and spacious and had a great view of the city from our apartment. The staff were very helpful and booked cabs for us when we inquired about them. The best thing was it was very central and after a day of shopping was lovely to come back to somewhere where it was clean and tidy and we could easily relax.

I hope you thoroughly enjoyed the show at Pricess Theatre and glad you found us convenient to everything you required during your stay in Melbourne CBD. Equally pleased you found our friendly front desk team helpful throughout your stay to ensure your needs were accommodated in their usual friendly manner. See you again soon when KIng Kong opens at the Regent Theatre, just a short walk away in Collins Street!
