"Melbourne City Hotel"
We booked for two days through Expedia and discovered we had to pay $20 per day for the car park and as the hotel was in the middle of the city we had no other option. We had the studio room which was very small; it was semi self-catering, however, there was nowhere to sit and eat inside the room except for the bed. We were also disappointed to learn that as we booked through Expedia we would not have our room serviced for the stay.

"A good and decent accomodation"
Generally a decent hotel with good service and cleanliness. It has a good location. It takes about 10-15 minutes walk to Swanstown Street and Victoria Market. Just remember to read the instructions on the washing machine carefully as we had a bad experience with it! Overall a good choice of accommodation!

"Good suite facilities, cleanliness disappointing"
Room had good view for a small premium, with balcony. Lay-out and furniture were appropriate and tasteful, large bathroom with hidden laundry, full kitchen (presumably one can ask for cookware, which was scant). Looking more closely there was a sense of fatigue and lagging maintenance about, including large stains on the furniture, dirty towels - not a good look-, dirty walls, faulty remote, a highly temperamental card-reading system in the lifts that was quite annoying, that kind of thing. I would probably go back for a longer stay, but would make sure to view the room first. I was annoyed at them taking a bond off my credit card; at the time of writing I don't know if they have given it back. Instead of reversing it at check-out, they tell you they'll pay it back "in a few days". It gets hard to follow this through when you're leaving the country. I'm sure they'll do it, but what recourse do I have if they decide that I was the one who stained their furniture or walls or carpet?

"Great CBD location, close to theatre."
I took my mum and my sister in law to Melbourne for the weekend to watch Les Miserable. The hotel was a 2 min walk to the theatre. The apartment was on the 26th floor with terrific city views. It was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic time and I would definitely stay here again.

The Oaks on Lonsdale is central to the MCG and Etihad Stadium. It is also close to the Bourke Street Mall, Restaurants and public transport. There is also an IGA Supermarket next door which is very handy for food and alcohol shopping. The apartments are quite spacious and well appointed. There is both heating and cooling.

"Oaks on lonsdale good stay"
I give it a 3.5 to 4. Nice hotel and good location. Studio apt had a kitchen and large bathroom plus fairly comfortable king bed. It was lacking a chair. No place to sit or eat other than bed. Needs a coat of paint. Beautiful city view. Free washer/dryer is nice if you get the one that works. Party above kept us awake all night on Saturday. Other than that no issues.

"Great location and a very spacious."
Had a great time at the Oaks. Location was perfect and apartment was spacious, clem and very well equipped. We were so pleasantly surprised as after reading some of the reviews we were a little hesitant. What a nice surprise when we opened the door to unit 1505 (one bedroom). Multiple restaurants in area (borders China Town) and tram, bus and train station within a 3 minute walk. Our washing machine in the apartment did to work and when we called the Front Desk, they came up immediately to see what was wrong. They could not correct the issue so took our laundry with them and returned it all washed and dried later in the evening. A perfect place to stay - we loved it.

"Terrible Experience and Service"
The hotel staff were very rude and provided horrible service. We got kicked out of our room without any warning until the last minute because of apparent noise however we weren't notified of any noise complaints or warnings until we were actually rushed out of our room onto the street at night. We weren't even making much noise, could hear a lot more noise coming from another room on the same level. I recommend staying at any other hotel in Melbourne CBD as it's not worth paying to stay at this hotel. Was not an enjoyable experience at all.

Although the hotel amenities is less than satisfactory, its fantastic location is a huge draw to revisit the hotel. Oaks at Lonsdale is just about 5 minutes away from Chinatown, 3 minutes to the major theaters and 2 minutes from the Parliament station. It is a short walk to the Melbourne museum and Fitzroy street, and the major shopping area is just 3 blocks away. Most importantly, city circle tram is just a stone throw away to hop on and off to all the major attractions in the city.

"Good location"
Walking into the room we felt that the wall looked soiled. There is nowhere to stack luggage or even a chair to sit on. Bed is quite close to window and curtains opened when getting in/out of bed. On level 28, it was a little disconcerting. elevator service was quite good as was bed comfort. Door to room was lethal, it sprung closed with no mechanism to slow down. Be careful with fingers and arms. There is a nail sticking out of carpet close to tiled area, wear shoes or slippers. Location close to Chinatown, other eateries and trams was very good. Cafe downstairs was also excellent.

Nobody made up our apartments for two days continuously. I understand that one day is because of public holiday but the second day the apartment was not cleaned despite we told the reception that we need to clean the room. When we came back to the apartment after sightseeing in the evening, we only found out the room was not made up at all. We contacted the reception again but they said there is no housekeeping staff at night!!
