My wife and I stayed at the Quest on Dorcas as part of visiting the Monet's Garden exhibition. For the National Gallery of Victoria and for the many Southbank attractions it is a great location. It is also well located for either a walk or a short tram ride into the CBD. The surrounding area has many shops, convenience stores... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend with our 3month old baby. Friendly and efficient check in, free parking and the 1 bedroom apartment was all we needed. These apartments are located in a great spot close to the Cbd, botanical gardens or Albert Park.

We stayed here Saturday 23 March so that we could participate in a fun run on Sunday morning. We booked quite early online, and requested a week or so later a late checkout so we could shower after our run. It couldnt be guaranteed, but we were asked to make contact closer to the date.

I've stayed here a few times on business trips.

Stayed for a week in December for work in South Melbourne. Great location just off St Kilda Road and opposite the Botanic gardens. Hotel check-in is quick and easy and being a serviced apartment, I didn't really see reception again until I checked out. Apartment was fairly large for a one-bedder.

We had a one bed apt that was well equipped, modern and clean. Comfy beds but hard pillows and no free WiFi, which in this day and age is not good. Even though we were on the 8th floor, our outdoor area faced a brick wall, so we had no view and it made the apt quite dark. The tram... More

A modern, clean apartment hotel, well-located to visit Botanic Gardens, Rod Laver Arena and the National Gallery of Victoria. The rooms are well-appointed including a kitchenette with dishwasher. Two bedroom apartments comfortably fit two couples and we easily got parking right out the front (free in weekends). A no-fuss stay in a convenient location at a reasonable price.
