Quest Southbank is a convenient place to stay when working in Melbourne CBD or Southbank. Quest Southbank is close the the Southbank eating areas, Crown Casino and the Convention Centre. I have stayed at this apartment hotel 5 times in 2014, and have been happy to return.

Quest Southbank is located amidst the Arts Community of Melbourne, so there is never a shortage of things to do. If you feel like a "flutter", the Crown Casino is only 5 minutes walk away too. The CBD with its fascinating laneways and quirky shops is also easily accessible on foot. Great location! The service staff were terrific - the... More

The Quest is a suite complex located two blocks back from the Yarra and to the East St Kilda Road. So not far to CBD, entertainment and transport. We had a work function and required several rooms and after looking at the prices of hotel rooms with separate amenities we found that the Quest was 2/3 price. We had a... More

Although the location is great, within walking distance to the restaurants of Southbank, the 2 bedroom apartment we had was starting to show its age abit, marks on the carpet and walls. There was also abit of noise from building work happening beside the Quest, still not too bad a cost for what it is.

I stay here fairly regularly for business, because the location is great - plenty of restaurants in Southbank, and nice parks, walking/running areas (tan track, along the river) The only downside really is that the rooms are starting to get a bit tatty - marks on the walls, bathrooms looking grubby, towels getting thin, and the internal bedroom in the...

My colleague and I had a couple of nights in Melbourne for business recently and stayed at the Quest in Southbank. The location is excellent with cafe's and restaurants on your doorstep. Easy walking distance to anything in the CBD including the Flinders Street Station. If you fancy a run the Tan is an easy warm up distance away which... More

The Quest Southbank Melbourne is a great place to stay. It has a small amount of free parking, swipe card access to your floor, full kitchen and laundry. Supermarket across the road and close to Melboure CBD and Casino.

So, you are going to be working away from home for two weeks, in a country or city you have never visited before, so the first question is where do I stay? As it was to be two weeks and I did not relish that long coped up in a hotel room I opted for a serviced apartment. Thankfully Melbourne... More

We stayed at Quest on Southbank for Melbourne cup in October 2013, we found it clean other than a couple of stains on the carpet. It was perfect for us having a 2 bedroom apartment each couple had their own bathroom and with the kitchen we were able to make our breakfasts each morning. Its pretty central, walking distance to...
