    Stayed in a one room apartment last week. The location is great as you are actually near everything and anything... However, being in the heart of everything means that I have had to bear with the noise that occurs nightly and worse on fri & sat nights. There's an entertainment venue nearby on Queens Street and people start to queue... More

    Thank you for your feedback. About the Noise, We are on the process of installing double glazed windows and hopefully this will reduce the problem. With the security purpose we do have an onsite management staff to look after any security issues and i can assure that the apartments are safe at any given time. I will Definitely look in... More

    I stayed in a studio apartment (Apartment #3) for three nights last week while on a business trip to Melbourne. The Quest is close to a range of good restaurants and bars as well as in easy walking distance to a number of convenience stores. When I travel for business I prefer to stay in services apartments so I have... More

    After two nights of having rubbish trucks and street cleaners outside my window I moved accomodation. No apology from staff or offer of refund. At 3am I opened blind and a truck was parked with engine running right next to where I was trying to sleep, parked in alley off little collins st. This was continuous through both nights. Do...

    Stayed here with 2 other couples in a 3 bedroom apartment. The third bedroom was tiny and no storage area and the downstairs bathroom needed a make over. The living/kitchen area was huge and very comfortable. I could not fault the staff who helped us enormously as we were caught in volcanic ash flight delays for days. The biggest down... More

    We booked one night here when between leases whilst living in Melbourne. The staff were lovely, and frankly they'd need to be because the hotel was pretty awful. The first room we were given smelt so badly of smoke when we opened the door that we had to troop back down to the southern hemisphere's slowest elevator and back to... More

    Was placed in the old building, lift shuddered all the way up, room door had an ill-fitting lock, room stank of cigarettes and urine. It was freezing and there was only a small oil radiator. This is not 4 star, the advertising is not accurate, and I asked for my money back. FIrst time I have ever walked out of... More

    We stayed in the same room as the previous reviewer, and a month after that review, the washing machine and the broken shower screen had not been fixed. Also, the dishwasher did not work. One of the blinds could not be closed. The freezer was frosted over and unusable. We paid on average $160 a night. We were given only... More

    We were located in Apartment 28 of the “Queen Street building”, across the noisy alleyway other people on TripAdvisor have complained about. Naturally, we expected to pay a premium tariff as we were visiting Melbourne for the Formula 1 Grand Prix event, but were confident that we would have excellent accommodation, as portrayed in the photos on their website.
