We recently spend a few days at the Oaks in a 1BR apartment - the location was great and having a kitchen made a big difference us. The apartment itself was spacious and sufficient though not especially lush as the furniture is pretty basic. A word of caution: if you want wifi access while there, be sure to book a...

Serviced apartments at the parliament end of the CBD. I have stayed here several times for work. The rooms are fairly spacious, comfortable and clean and most have good views. The staff are always pleasant. On the downside, the lift can be very slow at peak times and the swipe cards are frustrating (deactivated in last visit). Despite having stayed...

For the price you pay you get a generously sized apartment right in the CBD. This true 1 bedroom apartment is substantially bigger than the average residential 1 bedroom apartment and has plenty of storage space and a good large bed. Countless restaurants, shops and public transport options are just a short walk away. The apartment does however come with...

We enjoyed a weekend in Melbourne and stayed at Oaks on Lonsdale. The location was absolutely perfect - close to Chinatown, shopping and transport. Our one bedroom apartment was actually huge (full kitchen) - with a big balcony overlooking the city that gave us a very beautiful view at night. The room was very clean and the bed super comfortable....

Great location but it just doesn't feel clean. We stayed three nights but wouldn't stay again. The walls in the room/apartment were dirty, the reverse cycle air conditioner couldn't be used because it was so noisy and the washing machine was broken and couldn't be fixed. This is our second and last with the group. Very, very ordinary.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
