I stayed in the Quest on Dorcas for 3 nights on a business trip. Main reason for me was to be close to the business area in South Melbourne where I needed to go. I have stayed in this place 2 times before, and was pleased to see that the place was still in good shape, clean and well maintained.... More

Stayed for three nights as part of a road trip. Prepaid through Quest website and got parking included in the building on our floor level (usually $15 per day extra) and a great price. Even got upgraded to a 2 bed executive apartment when we booked a 1 bedroom executive. Cleanliness, comfort and level of appointments was excellent. Friendly staff.... More

Chance booking for Oz Tennis Open - not a lot available at a reasonable price. Apartment suited our needs perfectly - clean, ample size with separate bedroom and was fully self contained meaning that we could choose to eat in. A small IGA store is within walking distance, as well as a good pizza house. The tennis arena is about... More

Stayed here as everything else in Melbourne seemed booked out. Lucky choice as the hotel was clean, comfortable and cheap. Modern decor and the apartment was spacious. All staff seemed friendly and it's only a couple of minutes from the central area of Melbourne. Would stay again.

We had three generations of family members in 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a quiet study nook. Some of the apartments looked to be privately owned, but we heard no noise and slept well. It is close to St Kilda road to get the tram into the city, but a bit too far to walk... More
