"Useful position"
This hotel is in close proximity to theatres, restaurants and galleries. It is neat, clean and has a small useful kitchen, as well as a small dining table, comfortable chairs and lounge. There is a supermarket downstairs nearby, and if you want to brighten the place up buy a bunch of flowers. Great if you are in town for a few days or over a weekend.

"Comfortable room, great view"
I stayed on 20th floor with views of the treasury building and the MCG. I was there on business so the room was very comfortable, quiet and close to everything...only a short stroll to emporium and state library. Great value. Only criticism- could do with a full length mirror in/on wardrobe. Strongly recommend for a short stay.

"Avoid like the plague!"
Horrible Experience. I was down for a 3 day business trip and it started and ended badly. Waited 15 minutes to check in. Once i was handed my room key I went up to my room to find the room has not been made. Another trip down to get a new room resulting in another 10 mins wasted. A few days after checkout i found a charge of $150 on my credit card. I contacted the hotel and they said they will call me back to follow up. Had to chase them up later that day to be told "we found a shower cap around the smoke alarm wrapped in black tape so you were obviously smoking in there." I told the person I don't smoke to which he replied maybe it was a guest and they have proof. He even said my colleagues room was found with the same smoke detector blocking contraption! I told them this was ridiculous and he said he'll speak to his manager and get back to me and of course he didn't. I contacted them the next day and was told they will reverse the charge (after saying i will dispute the charge). This kind of customer service is unheard of! Stay away, there are plenty of choices around.

"Close to the CBD and public transport."
I stayed here for the weekend of the Melbourne Marathon. The race start is a little less than 2 km away from the hotel. A great view of the city from the upper floors but not too noisy.

""OK" if thats what you are looking for."
One night only. I was in late and out early so i didn't get that much of a taste. I thought the room was clean and the bed was fine, but the whole place has a rather cheap feel and is pretty charmless. The telly was the smallest I'd ever seen so I didn't bother looking at that. At the reception they took a hundred dollar deposit on my credit card. In case, I was told, I used some room services. A bit odd since apart from the shampoo, soap and miniature UHT milk, there didn't appear to be much else I could use. Overall I'd say that the value was only 'OK'.

"Quiet location and handy to transport"
My sister and I came to Melbourne for shopping expedition. We had a wonderful time and found the free trams an amazing way to get around the city. It took us a day to find out about the station 2 mins up the road from the hotel. Perhaps the reception staff could ensure guests are made aware of this service so close by. We found the café next door was a great place for breakfast and the staff were most helpful and friendly. Overall our stay was very enjoyable. Hope to be back again.

"Home through Melbourne"
We stayed Melbourne on our way home from Turkey. We had a one bedroom apartment with excellent views over the city. The apartment was very comfortable and spacious. All attractions were an easy walk from the hotel and there is an excellent cafe next door for breakfast which has free wifi. The hotel provides only 30 minutes of free wifi per day. If you need more you must pay but be aware that the time charged is consecutive from the time you log on. We had assumed two hours meant two hours of use over the day which was not the case. When I asked the desk about this misunderstanding we received a code for complimentary two hours which was much appreciated

"Great location and quiet."
Great location and quiet. Hotel is easy walking distance to main train and tram stations and downtown but just far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle. Convenience stores, theatres and good restaurants all close. We went for the AFL Grand Final so very close to the start of the parade and walking distance to the MCG across Fitzroy Gardens. Also walked to the Melbourne Museum and Carlton. Plus the hotel was within the free tram city boundary.

"Fabulous room, great location."
Fabulous, comfortable and beautifully clean. Would definitely stay here again. IGA with bottleshop right next door, was really handy. Could get coffee in the foyer. Only disappointment was the shower. It only had a screen which went a quarter along the bath. Water was everywhere which was a bit of a concern with a tiny bathmat. Overall a lovely place to stay. Appliances all top of the range and staff were approachable and helpful. 10 minute walk to town and one minute walk to free circle tram stop.

"great location, nice amenities"
The hotel is in a great location with nice views near the theatre district and Chinatown. Easy walk to Fed Square. The one-bedroom apartment was spacious, clean and mostly quiet. Staff were polite, efficient and knowledgeable. Would stay here again if I found a good rate again. Only minor downsides were lumpy pillows with no extras in room to swap with and could not use balcony because other people were smoking on theirs and the cigarette smoke was overpowering out there. Would be great if the whole property was non-smoking so smoking on the balconies was not permitted.

"good position. quiet except for airconditioner"
I have stayed in hotel before and experience is variable. Sometimes good sometimes terrible. The volume on TV didn't work at all and the air-conditioner sounded like it was going nuclear about to explode no matter what setting was used (eg minimum) which made the night cold as had to switch it off. Ok for a single night. Would be worried about a longer stay putting up with those things. Café in foyer very good for takeaway breakfast & coffee.

"Ideal"
I rate an experience based on my expectations which take into account the rate I pay for the room and location. This was a 5/5 when it came to my expectations. The rate for room was better than anywhere else, it's right next to a supermarket and in the CBD. Even better, I received a room upgrade to a one bedroom apartment. It was very clean, roomy, had a great kitchen area and was bigger than a residential apartment in the Melbourne CBD.

"Fantastic accommodation in centre of Melbourne!"
After staying at this hotel on previous occasions in the past, we again stayed at the Oaks on Lonsdale for our recent short stay in Melbourne. Once again the location, staff, rooms and amenities did not disappoint! A great location with a leisurely stroll to the Bourke Street mall & the Emporium & Melbourne Central Shopping Centres only a few minutes walk away. The tram line runs from Spring Street, just off Lonsdale which made it easy to get to Southbank, DFO and Etihad Stadium. The staff were friendly and helpful right throughout our stay. The rooms were comfortable and the self contained apartments are great if you want a night in! An enjoyable experience!

Location is very good close to China Town, and the Spring St Trams. IGA next door which is very convenient. The room is spacious, decor a little on the tired side with old cooking smells and the bathroom was not the cleanest. We had constant sound problems with the TVs in both the bedroom and lounge - not a huge issue as we were out all day, but it was annoying when wanting to watch TV in our down time. When we booked in to the hotel we requested the express airport shuttle with a lady at the front desk to take us to the international airport 5 days later. As far as we knew this had been done. Luckily we double checked the day before leaving and were surprised to find that it had not in fact been booked and we could no longer get the express airport shuttle but had to get a taxi instead. The gentleman was very apologetic of the mix up. All in all it was a nice stay in a good location.
