After a stressful week trying to get our family members out of Nepal after the earthquake, we were welcomed generously to Quest on Dorcas by Newsha, the delightful woman at reception. She showed genuine concern and helped us with all our needs. The spacious, clean and well-equipped apartment was in a great location right near the Shrine of Remembrance, so... More

We had a girls weekend in Melbourne and choose Quest based on its price, location and room options. We had a two bedroom apartment with en suite and separate bathroom. Lots of room to move and not get in each others way. Our room faced the city so great views day and night. Its only located a block from the... More

We stayed at Quest on Dorcas on the recommendation of our daughter. We now would recommend Quest on Dorcas - for a number of reasons.

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.
