Quest Pr4ahran, is an excellent place to base yourself while in Melbourne. Trams to the city about 75 metres away, and close to restaurants and bars on Commercial Road. car parking right at your door. Let Rod and his excellent staff look after you.

The apartment is close to the Prahran market, which makes it extremely easy for fast food joints and other eateries open till late. Good for a overnight stay for business or visit, however the rooms on the ground floor are bit tight where the parking comes right to your door step. For a family it is bit of a squeeze.... More

We stayed in the Quest Prahran 3 nights from Friday to Monday (during the Formula One) This place is so noisy we didn't get any sleep. We got woken up all the time by trains going passed, people coming home, cars coming and going all night. (Carparks are direct in front of every apartment) There is a nightclub right next... More

I arrived for a work trip with a large suitcase not realise that I'd have to scale almost 30 steep stairs and two levels to get it to my room. The two bedroom apartments are not suitable for all adults to stay in, the main bedroom is fine but the second bedroom the beds are small and very close together... More

Despite reception selling the hotel as being refurbished, good location and a great place to stay it was definitely NOT!!!! I will never make this mistake again. My colleagues room had a fan which was about the fall from the ceiling onto his bed with exposed wiring, my room was at the front so extremely noisy with lots of trains... More

We are always concerned when we hear that guests did not enjoy their stay especially when it is not typical of the feedback we receive. We have indeed been completely refurbished in the past twelve months. Unfortunately things still break from time to time and they are repaired as soon as they are reported to us. The fan was replaced.... More

If you're looking for a central stay in Melbourne, Quest Prahran is a great choice. It's situated just paces from Commercial Road tram stops and the train station, both of which run directly into the CBD. As food lovers, one of our favourite aspects of the location was the Prahran Market around the corner – here there's a range of... More

Enjoyed our time there. Staff were accommodating. Only concern is that when the oven was used, the room filled with smoke. Even more concerning is that the smoke alarm on the ceiling stayed silent. Nice and central to Prahran and the team into the city.

Three of us stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment for one night. Several apartments enter a locked shared staircase area before going into our own apartment. Ours consisted of lounge/dining on the first floor and bedrooms/bathrooms up the stairs on the next level. We were given the option of stairs or an apartment without, so stairless apartments are...
