“Perfect Weekend Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Really enjoyed our stay here. An easy 10 minute walk to Spencer Street Station where the Skybus from the airport drops you. Checking in was efficient. We had a room on the 19th floor. Plenty of space, clean and a comfortable bed. Everything was new and fresh. Shower was hot and lots of pressure. The toiletries provided were also of a good quality.
The hotel is located a couple of hundred metres from the Victoria Markets and about 20 metres to the trams, including the free City Circle one. We walked to the MCG which took us around 35 minutes. Overall a great place to spend a few days in Melbourne.

Room Tip: High and facing Flagstaff Gardens

This hotel is a great place to stay when visiting Melbourne, its close to the city centre and Queen Victoria Markets and all other attractions are only a short tram ride away or a nice walking distance. The room itself was new, modern and very clean not to mention quiet we never heard a thing! We had room with a balcony and a city view which was fantastic to look out at night. The coffee shop in the building is great too. This hotel is definitely value for money!

I got upgraded to a room with a balcony and great views over Flagstaff Gardens. The room was nicely decorated with mini kitchenette and very comfortable.
Lovely staff too. This place was great value coming in at $134 a night. Bargain!

Perfect. New, clean, quiet, spacious, comfortable, convenient. Absolutley no issues here. I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of this hotel and recommend this hotel. Inclusive wifi would be nice although I have a data card so it was not an issue for me.

Room Tip: higher floor overlooking the park is nice

On arrival and booking in, one of the friendly staff advised me that I was flagged for an upgrade to one of the topmost floors and was amazed to find my room had an incredible panoramic, almost 180degree, view of Melbourne city, suburbs and the bay. After dragging myself away from the balcony, I found the room to be so spacious, well laid out and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and again it was wonderful having a coffee on the balcony in the mornings and taking in the view once more. Although I'd stayed in hotels in the centre of the city before for convenience, I preferred to be in this location as it was very quiet. It was so close to all transport with Melbourne Central Station only a few minutes walk. As too was the Victoria Markets which is minutes around the corner. (One of the advantages of Melbourne is that it has a great transport system anyway.)
Needless to say the staff were friendly and helpful at all times, especially with tips for getting around Melbourne.
The only downside was that no breakfast room service was available but the cafe downstairs offered lovely coffee and breakfast with the option of taking it back to the room.
The Oaks on William will now be my first choice when returning to Melbourne.

Room Tip: See if an option is available for a room upgrade. The higher floors do have less traffic noise.
