Oaks on Collins Street
Travel Blogs from Melbourne
We arrived in a very sunny Melbourne – around 36 degrees and caught
the Skybus into the central train station where we debated about
walking to the hotel. We then caught a taxi to our apartment and
checked in before exploring our local area. We stayed in St Kilda, a
main road that comes out from the city centre, an …
In Melbourne for a mates birthday doing mandatory bar hopping. Had a bad flu but soldiered on through 8 bars and a bit of sightseeing.. Tips for travellers:
1) Walk the Yarra River from the Crown Casino to Federation Square. A cool walk viewing the city from the other side of the river. Lots of places to eat and drink at along the walk.
The trip to Melbourne this time did not involve any drink ups, pub crawling or shena****ns... it was all about relaxing and sight seeing...
The trip started off with seeing the Dracula's Cabaret show on Victoria St, Carlton, followed by the Geat Ocean Rd tour the next day. The Great Ocean Rd tour was amazing! There were many amazing …

Got a great price for the weekend so I took the offer.
Two blocks from the Skybus to/from the airport, 4 blocks from the centre of the CBD... what more could you ask for.
Got a great studio room with cable and its own kitchen and a special pebble entry to my room :-)

Historical Traveler Reviews Oaks on Collins Street Melbourne
We stayed for our 10yr wedding anniversary. The room contained a Queen bed, two seater lounge, round 4 seat dining table, and kitchenette with sink, mini fridge, microwave, kettle and basic cutlery. The ensuite is right next to the bed and separated from the main room by sheet glass walls and a little cramped. No possible views. A small balcony looks at neighbouring office blocks and down onto the pool area.
My partner and I spent 2 nights here and it wasn't a pleasant experience.
$105 per night from lastminute.com.au - it was a "mystery" hotel in the CBD. Thought I would be subjected to the usual type of web hotel room - you the the ones where no one else wants to stay so they put the nasty internet deal people in. Turned out the room was sensational. I got a twin Studio and it was HUGE. Unique layout which has to be seen to be believed. The hotel is right in the heart of Melbourne and you can walk anywhere. Collins street is so awsome for shopping and eating and the airport bus connection drops you at the door of the hotel if you like. I walked from where the airport bus terminates at Southern Cross Station. Loved the front desk staff - ALL of them were really on the ball and nothing was too much trouble. Have to say the housekeeping was a bit under the mark but nothing major, just ever so slightly lazy for my high standards.
Good central location
Myself and wife stayed at Oaks on Collins for 4 days and nights.
We found the amenities more than satisfactory.
A short stroll into the cbd centre. The 1st floor restaurant was more than adequate for breakfasts and evening meals with the staff very friendly.
Would recommend and would visit again.

Yeah, great! I'll be back.
I booked through wotif
It was a good deal including breakfast for one and upgrade to
executive studio appartment. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay of two nights here in this funky hotel, clean room and comfy bed.
We stayed in a Executive studio apartment for 1 night before moving to a 1 bedroom apartment for 3 nights over Easter. Few problems, ie. the location was a little out of the way for shopping and restaurants but not really a problem unless you are not fond of walking 4-5 blocks.
Our studio room was sleek, modern and done in various shades of black and white. They packed a lot into a very small space. It worked better visually than on a more practical level.
Myself and two friends stayed at the Oaks on Collins for a week-long shopping trip in January. The room normally accommodates 2 people, but the staff set up a portable bed for us which was really comfortable.
Excellent value for money
We stayed here in January for 3 nights and got an amazing deal on ---- for only AUD$120 per night. The room was small but really nicely decorated and the bed is comfortable. We had a balcony which apparently is not available in all rooms. The hotel is still being finished so this was the reason for the cheap rate however we were not inconvenienced in any way but the building works so it made no difference to us. There is a small gym and a really small pool. The bar in the lobby is really good the drinks are really cheap. During the day it is also a mini food court. I would definitely stay at this hotel if I could get a similar deal.
It was our honeymoon and we weren't satisfied with the hotel we were staying at so we surfed the Net to search for a better one in the area. We shortlisted a few and Oaks On Collins was the first that we checked out. We nearly missed the building because its contemporary design didn't look like a hotel from the outside. We were pleasantly surprised at the special rate we were getting because the room's just too new with complete facilities - attached LCD TV, a mini kitchenette with electric stove and oven, boiler, plates and bowls etc complete with utensils. We could even find a measuring cylinder the next day! There were also photo frames and flowers on the table. During check-in, we realised we were the first to actually use the room as it just opened less than a week! Needless to say, we switched hotel immediately. Even packing and tugging our luggages late at night was well worth it.
