Clean, comfortable and well located. Reception staff friendly and approachable. I think the price was excellent for accommodation of this standard. That is all I want to say, but Trip Advisor insists on a 200 character minimum.........

Just got back from a week staying in a 3 bedroom apartment - 2 real adults and 4 teens! The location was superb for our situation. The teens were able to come and go around Prahran, as were we. There are heaps of restaurants, the Prahran Market a five minute walk away-we walked down to get our coffee each morning.... More

Just stayed at Quest Prahran again and loved the renovations! Our apartment looked fresh and contemporary and was really comfortable. As always the staff were really friendly and helpful too. Thanks Quest Prahran, hope to stay again sometime soon :)

We recently stayed, along with friends, in one of the two bedroom apartments for four days. The place is definitely in need of a facelift. It looked like renovations were going on whilst we were there but unfortunately they had not made it to our unit by the time of our stay. Tiles coming off the wall in the bathroom,... More

The only good thing I can say about this apartment was the location just behind the Prahran Markets and close to train and tram stops. Three couples stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. On walking in to the apartment the first things we noticed were a large wax burn on the carpet, peeling kitchen cupboards and stains on the dining... More

We were in Melbourne visiting our daughter who lives in Prahra. Quest is idealkly located to Prahran market, Alfred Hospital and tram access. In fact the tram stop is about fifty meters away.We had a one bed apartment with equipped kitchen. All the rooms are being updated, but ours was fine. Sleep quality perhaps not so great because of the... More

Having been a resident of Prahran for many years, I'm used to the noise that can filter through at early hours of the morning. Heck, I'm even used to the trains. But I was not prepared for the noise that repeatedly woke us throughout the night we stayed at Quest Prahran. We were staying in a one bedroom apartment that... More

Very conveniently located to restaurants, Prahran Market, cinema,city transport. Mainly helpful staff but the two groups of two senior couples were both moved during our stay of 5 days for different reasons. In one two bedroom apartment the two single beds were only suitable for small children, certainly not adults. Another two storey, two bedroom apartment had a second bedroom... More

Recently spent 5 nights here in a 3 bedroom serviced apartment with family group. A few nit-picks - no exhaust fan in bathrooms so a bit like a sauna, apartment sleeps 6 but only 4 dining chairs, mish mash of 5 unmatched wine/champagne glasses. But, great location very close to tram line to the city, close to Chapple St and... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenage children) stayed at the hotel initially for 2 nights and upon our return from Sydney for an other 8 nights. During our initial stay we were allocated a 2 bed room apartment on the first floor. Whilst the bed rooms were roomy the sitting area and the kitchen was rather small.... More
