We stayed at Quest on Dorcas on the recommendation of our daughter. We now would recommend Quest on Dorcas - for a number of reasons. The room was lovely and clean with a stunning view over the city skyline It is only a short scenic tram ride or a leisurely stroll from the city but close enough to walk to... More

After an initial misunderstanding about our selection of room, we were moved to the 11th floor, with nice views over the city. The rooms are very clean and spacious, and the beds comfortable - although only queen-size available. The location is excellent, being 1 minute from the trams on St Kilda Road, and with a couple of good convenience stores... More

I must confess I have stayed many times over the past 5 odd years. The rooms are spacious, clean and many offer great views of the city. Quick access to the CBD or St Kilda, supermarkets and shops a 10m walk away. Happily stay here whenever I'm in Melbourne for work.

Just a short stroll to flinders street, local cafes and trams. If you are lucky to have a room with the view of the war memorial is amazing! I recommend heading over for a look the view form the top is amazing. Rooms are nicely fitted out. I would recommend including moisturiser in your complimentary items though.

We have stayed here many times. The location is great. Couple of small supermarkets close by. Right opposite are the Botanical gardens, great for the kids to run off energy! A five minute walk and you reach the National Gallery of Victoria, which is free admission. You do need to pay for some of the exhibitions but most are free.... More
