Visited Melbourne for the AFL Grand Final. Could have booked hotel rooms in the CBD but chose Quest On Dorcas in South Melbourne as they are full size apartments at a reasonable cost. The apartment # 1112 was a one bedder with kitchen, lounge room, office nook with desk, kitchen and bathroom. The apartment was clean and modern. The location... More

I normally stay around the corner but it was fully booked so I got put here. The accomodation was clean and had modern interior however the bed was rock hard and very uncomfortable and sorrounded streets very loud with trucks/cleaning cars in the morning. Would not stay here again unless there were no other options.

Our 2 bedroom unit was small but adequate. No privacy as lounge windows were extremely close to building next door where you could easily see what office workers were doing and they could see you. Next time would request a different room outlook. Units were extremely clean. Bedding was very comfortable, although tram noise was considerable as we had our... More

Stayed here for a week. Found the location good with plenty of cafés and restaurants near by, also a tram stop at the top of the road so was quick to travel around.

stayed here for a weekend away in Melbourne, staff were very friendly and accommodating. Executive 1 bedroom Room was clean and spacious. Didn't like the added costs associated to requests such as an hour later checkout ($10) and room with a view ($20/per night), usually find that sort of request is granted if a hotel can accommodate at the time....

We loved our stay. Our apartment was very clean and comfortable. We had a two bedroom for 2 adults and 4 children and there was more than enough room for all of us ( 2 bathrooms). Easy tram ride into the city off St Kilda Rd. Fantastic views of city and botanical gardens. Parking. Beds comfortable. Quiet. Supermarkets near by.... More

I can't agree more that this hotel has very clean rooms. I stayed several times here during my trip to Melbourne and each time, the room given is very clean. The staff are really friendly and helpful, from recommending places for breakfasts to even in assisting refunds. As we returned several times, the staff even remembered our names. Thumbs up... More

I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on a trip to Melbourne with a few friends in June 2014. I can not recommend Quest on Dorcas more highly.
