We booked into a studio unit but were able to upgrade to a one bedroom apt for minimal cost. Our room was fantastic: full kitchen, large living room, very comfortable bedroom and a welcome terrace with great views on which we were able to enjoy a glass or two. The Oaks was close to all amenities including grocer, buses, trams,...

The rooms are a good size and the bathrooms are nicely finished. the location is also great so you can walk around to most locations. They offer dry cleaning and laundry services and have a 24 hour reception. Public...

On night stay in one bedroom. Basic but clean. Bathroom is a good size and I love the fact that there was actually some bench space alongside the basin. Bed is comfy. Kitchenette with mini fridge, kettle and microwave. Small tv but okay size for the room. One glaring omission in the room was the lack of any type of...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you very much to choose stay with oaks on Lonsdale recently. I appreciate your comments and went through the areas you have highlighted, I have to say our studio room is little bit compact for the leisure guest as it was designed for traveller staying overnight for business. However, we do have decent self-contained one bedroom...

We booked a studio unit and the first time we were here we were on the 27th floor with great views. The room was fine, but the housekeeping left a bit to be desired, there was a shortage of cutlery and plates and the cleaning could have been more of a priority as there was grime around the corners in...

This was the first time I had stayed at Oaks on Lonsdale. I was in a studio apartment on the 27th floor. The apartment was spacious enough, clean and tidy. However, the air conditioning made a whining noise all night. There was no security lock on the inside of the door, which made me feel a bit uneasy being on...

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.
