We arranged to meet our two sons and their families (a total of 6 adults and 5 children aged 9 to 14)in Melbourne and choose to stay at Quest on Dorcas because of its proximity to the CBD and the tram line. We booked three apartments to accommodate the two families plus grandparents and requested that all apartments were on... More

Good, modern, clean rooms. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and while the bedrooms are relatively small, the 2 bathrooms and generous living & kitchenette space more than made up for this. Its only about 4 tram stops from the cbd and there are plenty of trams routes going past so getting about Melbourne from the Dorcas is easy. I'd... More

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....

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.
