I usually enjoy staying in Quest apartments, but this one certainly did NOT live up to their normal standards. We rented a 3 bed apartment last weekend and while the apartment was roomy and central, the noise was dreadful. A nightclub nearby on both Friday and Saturday nights meant it was difficult to sleep. The apartment needed a good clean,... More

Not up to Quest standards at all. Frayed carpet, dirty bathroom, leakimg toilet, only decaf coffee, nothing like in their photos. Very tired and basic. Construction on building but not told on arrival.

The noise from the nightclub across the street will keep you awake until 5.30am. The windows are not double-glazed and the music is so loud even earplugs do not block it out. Do not risk staying here. Although we complained about the noise on our first night, our call was disconnected and we were not contacted again by the staff.

A group of us stayed here for a long weekend recently. We'd read about the noise complaints from other travellers (after we'd already booked - rookie mistake!) but were assured the noise was 'no more than other hotels' in the vicinity. Quite frankly, for some of us it was just a nightmare. The building, on the Queen Street side, is... More

Step out the front door and your in the heart of the shops & cafe's. Very handy to the trams. Our apartment was spacious and well presented. Friendly helpful staff on reception. Good air conditioning. Nice clean rooms Minor issues: The building could do with an upgrade; very old lift, strings on the venetian blinds missing so no way of... More

Have stayed here a few years ago and I think things were better. However, this time had room 13A and there was no air conditioning. We were supplied with an evaporative unit but it was so noisy, we couldn't sleep with it on and because of the heat we couldn't sleep at all. Window open was not an option as... More

Travelled to Melbourne for business - central location perfect for balance of work and play. My room was well equipped; the staff helpful, and my after hours check-in was hassle free. I'll use Farifax House next time I am in town.

I was booked here and stayed two consecutive weeks of two night stays each. The $200 ikea sofa in the lobby should have tipped me off that this place is cheap. The first time I came I was put in a room with ten steps up to a loft-style room/unit. I have had knee surgery and had an aversion to... More

Chose this place for the central location and because it looked quite nice in the pictures. But upon arrival we were placed in the Queen St building (next door) in a horrible room. There were lots of stairs before and after the lift and the bathroom was quite unpleasant. We moved to a different Quest the next day...

I booked a room for a business trip based on the fact that it was tucked away on Little Collins St and would be a quiet place to sleep. After booking in I was disappointed to be directed to another building that faces the very busy Queen St. Thursday night, 4am... garbage trucks until dawn. This would have been OK... More
