I've been to canberra quite a few times and always wish, when I stayed elsewhere, that I was at the quest This time I had a studio room (normally I have a 1 BR) and it was great. Spacious. Recently renovated. Great aircon. The bed was soooooooo comfy. Though I did have a giggle at the smallest TV ever known... More

A few of us stayed here for work recently. Great location that was close to our office and all restaurants, but that also forms part of the downside. You are right above the pubs/restaurants and it can get pretty rowdy. Very nice staff, nice apartments and very spacious balconies. My room smelt a bit musty, but this wasn't the case... More

I stayed here for 3 nights during a work trip. The receptionist was lovely and friendly and I was in my room very quickly. The room itself was nice with enough space. However, the layout meant that when you opened the entry door, you pretty much ran straight into the table and chairs making getting in or out of the... More

I've stayed a few times now and have been happy with the Quest experience. Parking is available behind the building which is a benefit as street or public car parking is tough to find. Rooms on the front of the building are the best as you balcony gets a view. Rooms at the back can loud when garbage trucks come... More

We just got back from our stay at quest Canberra. This was my first time staying in a serviced apartment rather than a hotel. The quest had the service you expect from the hotel but with a lounge room, your own kitchen, separate bedroom, a huge balcony and a cheaper pricetag. It is five minutes walk from anything you need... More

I stay here regularly for work, the location is central, rather than a formal hotel, these are serviced appartments, but the experience is typically better than most hotels in Canberra. The place has a low key, intimate feel without an impersonal large lobby like most Hotels. Rooms are large and often feature generous balconies, rooms are modern and stylish. There... More

I recently spent 6 nights here for work purposes. After reading previous reviews on Trip Advisor warning about the noise from the nearby Irish Murphy's pub, I asked for a quiet room away from the hotel noise. I was given room 18 which is at the back overlooking a deceptively quiet lane - with lots of rubbish bins. I was... More

Dear Campbells05, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback for Quest Canberra. Being a hotel in the central CBD city of Canberra, we face the obstacles of outside noise such as street noise from cars as well as people passing and the truck noises from the emptying of the bins for the corresponding shops in our building. Unfortunately... More

The apartments are very centrally located in a lovely old building. My apartment was clean, well equipped and relatively spacious with a nice private balcony. Front desk staff were very helpful and lent me an umbrella when I was going out for the evening and it was raining. There was a problem with the hot water for the whole building... More

I booked here because of it's location and because it is in the Melbourne building. I was alone in a one bedroom apartment. Unfortunately I was in Canberra for a funeral and was very preoccupied with that so I missed out on the opportunity to capitalise on the central location. The Parking system was awkward being in a back lane... More

Stayed here recently for a work trip to Canberra as I wanted to prepare my own meals and the Quest offered a small kitchenette. There was a pub located behind my room and it was pretty noisy when they were loading empty kegs out. It was also a happy hour night of the week for students so business was roaring.... More
