My mother and I stayed at this hotel for one night only - the reception area that greets u from little bourke st does not sell the property - grotty would be a word that comes to mind. Appreciating the historic significance of the building the hotel is not worth the money charged noting the following - our room stank... More

Dear Emma_L001, Thank you for sharing your feedback on your recent stay with us at Quest Gordon Place. You will obviously be aware that we are in the midst of refurbishing this property and most apartments are now being freshly painted. For the paint smell I can only apologise as this is an unfortunate and unavoidable side effect however please... More

We stayed there on Sat night and loved it. We had room 10 but unlike a previous review it was VERY clean. Sure it needs a paint job but we loved the character of the place. My husband is very very tall and hit his head a few times on the doorways (& bumped his knees on the door handles...)... More

We stayed for one night on Friday night. Booked studio room - after reading about previous reports on rooms facing the street ( below street) that they were very noisy. SO TRUE. You will not sleep at all and to top it off the garbos come around at 6am. This is an ancient building so expect to see rough walls... More

Dear beachbird129, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at Quest Gordon Place. For the noise disturbance you experienced we can only apologise, as being in the heart of Melbourne CBD it is of course impossible to eliminate all outside disturbances, although many of our guests comment that our great location more than makes...

We stayed at Gordon Place while we needed to be in Melbourne for treatment at Peter Mac for a six week period. Right from day one the staff were helpful, wonderful, caring and made our stay not so bad under the circumstances. We enjoyed the quietness and location of the hotel was fabulous. Its always a place we will appreciate.... More

a wonderful heritage building - great inner courtyards - very helpful and attentive staff. Had a one bedroom right down the bottom and the rear - so quiet - but nice to look out into the trees in the courtyard. Little Bourke St at the top end was quiet - and suggest you use the lane way to the right... More

Disappointing, is what this place is. For the price and stars, I expected cleanliness. Bzzzt. Wrong. My one-bedroom (10) looked very tired and looked like it hadn't been properly cleaned in a while. I could turn a blind eye to the black stains on the warped carpet, the major scratches/dents on the wall, the grotty grouting in the shower but... More

Housed in an old building with a fascinating and sometimes infamous history, this comfortable hotel is superbly located in the middle of the Melbourne CBD. Lots of interesting laneways and restaurants around, and not far to trams or trains. We booked a studio but were upgraded to a huge 2 bedroom apartment, with a kitchen, dining room and large lounge... More

We stayed at the Quest for 2 nights on one of the "dungeon" rooms on the bottom floor, which are below street level. Actually, despite what some other reviewer said, there is reasonable light if you open the curtain; and you can open the windows if you like, for fresh air. The room was small, but quite adequate for a... More

The hotel is well located if you want to be within walking distance of the Melbourne Cricket Ground and nearby sporting venues. It also has close access to both up market and cheap eats. What suprised me most was how dirty the public areas were. Not only small bits of rubbish on the floor and in the lift but stone... More

Quest Gordon Place is in a fabulous location in the centre of Chinatown close to theatres and shopping. The free tram is a short walk from the door. It has exceptional staff for whom nothing was a problem. They cheerfully replaced room cards when there was a problem, organised internet access and sorted out tricky invoicing for a trip that...
