We spent a month in Quest Carlton Finley for temporary accommodation. Cosy apartments (yes, they are not big) with the basic tools to manage. Very close to the city, usually people don't stay indoors much, so the space don't really matter. Lygon St is filled with Italian restaurants, wich most people like. Carlton Gardens are very close for healthy walks!... More

We stayed at Quest Carlton on Finlay during a recent weeklong visit to Melbourne. We had a 2BR apartment, which was an amazing amount of space. The rooms were clean and well-maintained, and there was everything we could want in the apartment--washer/dryer, sink, large refrigerator, etc.. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The location is right in the Carlton... More

Four of us stayed here for a weekend in a 2 bedroom apartment. In comparison to other apartments we have stayed in for the same price this was very small and the parking was extra on top of the room price. Unfortunately during our stay someone must have sneaked an extra car into the parking lot and boxed other paying... More

Located in an alley off the main road. Photo is misleading as most rooms face buildings. Our room faced a crumbling, dark brick wall that was so off-putting that I kept the curtains closed and the lights on. I spent as much time out of the room as possible during the day. The management tried to move us with no... More

I stayed for four nights in the context of a conference at the University of Melbourne which is within comfortable walking distance. The place is being refurbished but I was out all day so did not notice any noise or dust. Upon arrival I was upgraded from a studio to a two-bed room apartment, very spacious for one person.

Stayed at the quest Carlton for about 3-4 nights in 2014. loved the location, close to everything. First thought the building from outside was abit rough but inside very modern. Great people who work there and the rooms nice and clean. Would recommend it.

Two small bedrooms. Living area quite small. Not my favourite Quest but can't complain too much. Close to everything on Lygon Street and walking distance to city. As per Quest, full (but small) kitchen and laundry facilities are part of the deal.

The hotel provides apartment style rooms, they are upgrading them at the moment which will make them very good I think. Staff are always friendly. Nice comfy beds. Good parking that you have to pay for. It is also about 30m from Lygon street, wall to wall restaurants. It is probably a 10 minute walk to the theaters and Chinatown... More
