“Stylish apartment with all you need”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2011

My partner and I arrived after staying two nights previously in a 4 1/2 star hotel we were disappointed in. I phoned ahead the previous night to reserve a car space and ask if we could check our car and baggage in around 11.30am. This wasnt a problem and the staff were very friendly. Our room was ready at 12noon for our one night stay. We had a 1 bedroom apartment at the back of the building giving us views of heritage buildings and trees from the lounge area and balcony seating. We were pleasantly suprised and excited to view our spacious apartment which had a very comfortable king bed, tv in lounge and bedroom, spacious bathroom and well equipped kitchen. Very happy with the whole experience and the helpful and friendly staff.

We booked on a travelzoo offer of $139 per night for an upgraded one bed apartment and weren’t disappointed. The apartment was modern and spacious with excellent facilities. The bedroom was off the lounge with comfy beds, separate tv, built-in wardrobes and lots of storage space. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was lovely and quiet. The bathroom was huge with built in laundry facilities. Wi-fi is available for an additional charge ($10 for 2 hours) and overnight parking at the hotel is only $20 a night- fantastic value for Melbourne CBD! Chinatown and the CBD are right on the doorstep – and the rest of the city is easily accessible by walking bus or tram. A great stay – very good value.

I booked a 3 bedroom apartment for a group of three couples in Melbourne for a sporting event.
When we arrived we were informed that the room consisted of a 2 bedroom apartment with a interconnecting door to a studio apartment. While this is OK from a sleeping arrangement the lounge/dinning/balcony area was not big enough to seat 6 adults. When we complained to the front desk we were told that they do not have 3 bedroom apartments. This is false advertising, when you are told its a 3 bedroom apartment it should be. There is better accommodation in Melbourne.

We stayed at Oaks on Lonsdale for 2 nights. It was a spacious, modern 1 bedroom apartment. We usually stay in hotels so this was a lovely surprise. The apartment had floating floor boards, comfy bed, a tv in the lounge and bedroom a full kitchen and a balcony. It was a really hot weekend 40 degrees but the air conditioner coped well. The reception staff were a bit cold but it didn't really bother me as we didn't have much to do with them. The location was great and walking distance to most places or a short tram ride away. I would probably ask to stay on the street which doesn't face Lonsdale street next time and at a higher level. The traffic wasn't super noisy but it was a bit noticeable. All in all a great stay. There is also a convenience store only a couple of doors down.

Stayed for four nights in 1 bedroom apt at Oaks on Lonsdale. The apt is in a great location, near to the activity hub but yet quiet and peaceful at night.

We were in Melbourne for the Aust Open and were able to walk to and fro Rod Laver Arena (about 15 to 20min leisurely stroll). We also caught Mary Poppins at The Majestic Theatre along Exhibition St which is just around the corner from the apt.

The room was well-kept, and well-equipped. We loved the large, spacious and well-ventilated shower room and the washer-dryer. Daily housekeeping ensured that the wash cloth, detergent, etc were replenished and the room was in tip-top condition.

Highly recommended for medium to long stays in Melbourne.

We had an amazing stay in a 2 bedroom apartment in Jan for 2 nights. Very clean, spacious, and comfortable. The room had 2 balconies and two bathrooms... Which made getting ready very easy. We were very close to the theatres and free tram. You do need to take a taxi to the casino cause it's a bit of a walk. I recommend this place to anyone! You won't be disappointed.

We travelled to Melbourne from New zealand and were checked in by a member of staff who did not have a good command of English. We did not understand much of what he was saying but belived that he was telling us that we were going to pay in NZ Dollars and not Aus Dollars. We told him verbally that we did not want to do this as our experience told us that establishments generally convert currencies at rip-off rates. When we came to pay, the Aus Dollar rate was converted automatically at a hugely unfavourable rate to us and the staff member would not recredit our cards and bill us in Aus Dollars. Overseas travellers beware of this rip-off. Our rooms were not serviced properly, and we had to point out a lack of hot water in the kitchen and lights which did not work. The room needed complete redecoration. Do not stay here.
