Quest Prahran is centrally located making access to restaurants, shopping, cinemas and even a fruit and veggie market only a short walk away. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment on the ground floor which was generous in space for a couple. It would be acceptable for a couple with a young child too. The space was clean and welcoming....

The apartments are located on Balmoral Street South Yarra/Prahran, more or less being the Prahran Market. A 2 minute walk around the corner and you can enter the market via Commercial Road. We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment on the ground level, which was spacious and comfortable for a family. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen facilities, lounge area and dining... More

We are so pleased that you found the location convenient. Thanks for alerting tripadvisor patrons about our special rates for the hospitals in the area which includes The Alfred, The Avenue and Cabrini. Guests do need to call the property direct to access these rates. We are sorry you found the bed hard. Everyone has different preferences so we keep... More

6 of us stayed in a 3 bedroom unit for one night for the State of Origin. Would highly recommend for a short stay for a sporting event at the MCG. About a 30 minute walk to the stadium but also close to the tram line. Plenty of pubs and restaurants around, short walk to chapel street.

We made a last minute decision to stay in Prahran and saw that this was fairly central to get to restaurants etc. The staff gave us our parking for free as the online room prices had already gone. Our room was downstairs in front of the carpark. Our aircon wasn't working and the staff were very prompt in checking it... More

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

Thanks for your review. We love the markets too and the convenience of being located walking distance to Chapel Street. Next time you stay try a one bed executive room. This provides an upstairs apartment with a larger living space, full laundry, located above the car park, a bit more spacious for a family stay. Our friendly reception staff book... 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

We do apologize that your stay was less than satisfactory. The unfortunate trade off for having a convenient location is sometimes noise, especially on a major event weekend when we have a full house. We are generally careful to qualify guest needs and allocate rooms appropriately for their stay. Most of our rooms are not impacted by noise and we... 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
