first time there like 3 years old and it was much newer, went there again recently and not as good as expected, still reasonable good for the price, it's ok for a business trip but not for vacation. location is good while close to china town, lots of restaurant to pick for dinner.

Recently spent 3 nights in a Studio Unit, while attending a weekend conference nearby. Our room was on a high floor with views across the city. Location is definitely the hotels strong point. It's 100 Mtrs to the Parliament train/ tram stop, which can get you anywhere cheaply with a Myki pass. Rooms are fairly basic and if your looking...

A Pacific Islander travelling to Melbourne at the time that I did was not a good idea. But staying at the Oaks was such a great experience. Very conveniently located. Close to eateries and shopping. The room had a separate living room and kitchenette which was very convenient. Convenience store also 1 minute walk for those late night cravings.

Stayed for 2 nights.....5am arrival. Check in wasn't until 2pm but staff were accommodating and we were in our room by 11am. 2 bedroom apartments are spacious and comfortable.-Lucky enough to get a great deal for this apartment.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
