Perfectly located for the theatres near the Spring Street end of Lonsdale Street. Lots of fantastic late night restaurants close by. Good sized apartment with balcony overlooking the tree lined Lonsdale Street. The bed was comfortable. Tastefully decorated and the hotel staff were accommodating. The only complaint was on our return at 10.30pm the door to entrance of hotel was... More

I stayed here for two nights recently because it was close to the workplace I was visiting. Right in the heart of Lonsdale St. and a stone's throw from Chinatown and several big theatres, the location is fantastic. There are plenty of restaurants and virtually next door there is a small IGA which also features a liquor outlet. The room... More

We had stayed at Quest on Lonsdale a few years ago and enjoyed it so much however this time was a little disappointing. There were no issues with service - we booked in on Easter Saturday, Quest held our luggage from 10am until check in time - we were running late back to the hotel after babysitting some friends children....

I can't say enough good things about the Quest on Lonsdale, and all of the staff here. I stayed at the Quest last year, and was absolutely enthralled - the hotel is lovely, the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, the place is immaculately clean, the furnishings and facilities make it like home, and location is ideal. So when I... More

The Quest on Lonsdale was very well located to Melbourne CBD. A ten min walk would have you in the heart of Melbourne CBD. With centres like the Emporium, Myers and David Jones which were all inter connected. The Quest was also close to convenience stores like IGA with Woolworths only a ten min walk away. The Quest was very... More

Standard clean, comfortable apartment, in good location in Melbourne, especially if you are going to a show at Her Majesty's or the Princes Theatre, also close to the Museum. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen clean with enough crockery and cutlery for exactly two people! I do sometimes wish these places would give you a saucepan big enough to cook... More

We experienced several moves over the first couple of days due to poor air conditioning in 2 rooms and leaks from the roof in another. While the air con in the final room we were moved to worked OK it was very noisy.

1. Not exactly in the CBD, although it advertised itself as it is 2. The service counter actually closes at 10pm, or 11pm, depending on whether weekend of weekday. So, you can already imagine how troublesome this would be when you need any assistance at night. 3. Security, could be at risk, even though the guests would have been given... More

Stayed in the 2-bedroom unit with a colleague for work. Not the most beautifully decorated place but it is the very essence of functional. Everything you could possibly need was provided and for the 2 weeks we were there, there wasn't much to complain about within the room itself. Front desk stuff is always friendly and the location is really... More
