The Quest are gradually doing up this apartment block and I think it will be good when finished but like others if you choose a studio it is at the back and though quiet, it does look out onto a brick wall. I hasten to add we weren't in the apartment during the day so it didn't worry us too... More

This apartment hotel is located in the heart of the Lygon Street restaurant area, close to Melbourne University and the Melbourne CBD. We stayed in a first floor apartment that had a small outdoor area in addition to the indoor living area. Quest has convenient undercover parking accessed from Mission Place (there is no parking on Findlay Place) but the... More

This is in the heart of Lygon St in Melbourne. Hundreds of restaurants starting right outside the front for about 2klms either way. Very comfortable inside with every thing you need & attentive friendly service at the front desk.

Stayed here for three nights... Conflicting thoughts on the place... I feel a bit mean... On one hand it was clean, very very convenient (right on Lygon St... Minutes from great food) with lovely, professional, warm and friendly staff...On the other hand it was a very tired and worn out place, in need of some TLC.. And the rooms at... More

This property is well worth a look when coming to Melbourne. Our family - 2 adults, 2 now teenage children - have stayed here many times. A short walk to Swanston Street tram or a 10 - 15 minute walk to Melbourne Central. The apartments are comfortable with good basic kitchen facilities. Not a huge amount of space but really... More

I stayed here with a group of friends over the weekend, was not a bad price for considering the location. We really didn't spend too much time in our room, but it was a 2 bedroom apartment, with full kitchen, washing machine and dryer, bath/shower. Never had any issues at night, except for some drums playing quite loudly for a... More

I didn't choose the hotel, where I stayed for two nights, on business. The two best things about the hotel are its location and its reception staff. Located on Lygon Street, close to the city and Melbourne University, the area is packed with average but value-for-money restaurants. The location means the hotel has no restaurant or bar. There's a 7-11... More

I stayed here for 3 nights on business. On the positive side: Quick efficient check-in. Room was a 1 BR apartment on the 1st floor, which is effectively the ground floor for accommodation. It was clean, well maintained and had a decent kitchen, albeit with a strict 2-only-of-everything for crockery, glasses etc. Very quiet and a comfortable bed. Free wi-fi... More

I stayed here for three nights - having stayed at two other studio apartments in Australia. This was easily the best - quiet, tastefully decorated, light and well equipped. It is a central on the fringe location without being in the hub bub of the city. It's an easy 5 min walk to trams into the centre or a 15... More

Stayed in one bedroom apartment. Very clean, well set out and comfortable bed. Was worried it was going to be a bit tired but it wasnt and I was pleasantly surprised. Excellent location to Lygon st and our room was quiet. Would stay again if we had a night out at that end of town.
