Just spent three very satisfying nights at Oaks on Williams. The rooms are new, clean and modern and are well insulated from the outside and adjoining rooms. Our king bed was extremely comfortable and the bedlinen is good quality. Rooms to the rear are quiet with no tram or street noise however the views from the front are of the beautiful Flagstaff Gardens park. Every room has a balcony with a bistro style table and chair set. It was nice to be able to open the balcony door, especially when sleeping to allow fresh air into the room.
The kitchenette is well appointed with a large fringe, full size oven, microwave, draw dishwasher and small cooktop as well as all that is needed to cook and serve a basic meal.
The rooms do not have a tradition business style writing desk but instead have a small dining table and two chairs. The staff are friendly and do there best to help and answer inquiries. The rooms are cleaned and stocked daily. The location is handy with, the free city circle tram, a train station and an abundance of trams on the doorstep that all link you with greater melbourne. The Victoria Markets and Elizabeth Street are a stones throw away and have many cheaper eateries for lunch. There is also a very nice cafe at reception for coffee and breakfast. For dinner it is best to hop on a tram and head for Southbank, Lygon Street or Fitzroy's famous Brunswick Road - all about 10 to 15 minutes tram ride away. This hotel does not have some of the smaller high end luxury items such as bathrobes, pillow menu, shower caps or name brand toiletries but it makes up for that by successfully offering a friendly, well priced, half hotel, half bedsit alternative to the big chain hotels. I can recommend this new kid on the block.
