Great location. Really quiet. I will return Travelling alone always on the look out for places that are friendly and feel secure. Lonsdale was clean with generally friendly staff can't beat the location close to City and great eateries and bars.

We stayed in room 204 and the bathroom / central cooling fan was so loud that it kept us awake most of the nite since the rooms are small and it echoes. My husband had a big interview the next morning so it was most inconvenient. Having said that the gentlemen at reception handled it professionally and we were moved... More

We had stayed in these apartments several years ago and were pleased with them. However with all the surrounding tall apartment blocks now there these apartment are quite dark and dreary. The location is great for the city, surrounding coffee shops good and close to public transport. The staff were helpful.

Very helpful and friendly staff, especially the man on reception in the evening, he has a great sense of humor. Breakfast was delivered on time and to a high standard. Free WiFi was a welcome change from previous hotels I have stayed at. Would highly recommend.

I stayed here for a couple of night recently and it was ok, but there is much better accommodation in Melbourne that is more comfortable and contemporary and the same or cheaper price. The service was fairly good when I checked in, so no problems there. However the room was a bit old and tired and although tea and coffee... More

We had a group of us stay at this hotel for the Melbourne Marathon.... our experience was terrible I will NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone. The car parking they offer is close to hotel, yet they fail to mention that you cannot access your car at all until 9am on sundays! There were 12 of us staying and one... More

I recently stayed here while on a work trip. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, it was an easy walk to St Vs (where we were working) and convenient to the city attractions. The apartment was serviceable, but dated and the elevator was so old and slow i wasn't sure if we were going to make it at times... More

And the deal breaker ......Fluffy towels.. I would highly recommend ,Quest... More
