“Average is probably the best way to describe this hotel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We met up with some family for a couple of nights over the GP weekend and even though we booked a few months out this was not a hotel I would normally stay in due to location however our choices for what we required were limited. The service is quite nice, Andrew on the front desk in particular was lovely. The rooms are furnished nicely enough with the main bedroom of the 2 bedroom apartment spacious however the door did not close properly which made it difficult for anybody else to stay up and watch television in the lounge. The second bedroom is tiny, you can hardly walk past the end of the bed and the only window looks out to the elevator shaft. It was so cramped, hot and stuffy - can't even imagine what it would have been like during a Melbourne heatwave. You have keys to access the room which seems very old fashioned in this day and age and the shower was very poor. The water pressure terrible and it was leaking.

Room Tip: If you are wanting to stay here to go to the MCG then that is great but otherwise there are way bett...

A great spot within walking distance of the MCG and tennis centre. 10 min walk to the corner of Spring and Flinders in the CBD, or there is a tram stop 50 metres away. We stayed here for two weeks, staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended

Thank you for your kind words.

It is great to see that our guests are seeing just how close we are to the Melbourne CBD as well as the MCG and Rod Laver. To be able to walk out the front door and not be hit by busy city pedestrian traffic or a messanger on a bike, to me is a great way to start the day. Gives you time to breathe before you get into the daily hustle and bustle.

We look forward to welcoming you again.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights over Australia Day weekend and were delighted that there was still availability, as it is very close to the city and the Australian Open (which was having its finals, so everywhere was quite full). The location is really good, a very short walk to Jolimont Station, the MCG, the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens, and also not far from Rod Laver Arena and Melbourne Park tennis centre and soccer stadium. A great plus is that as its set back from Wellington Pde, its probably one of the quietest locations this close to the city.
The apartment was about $180/night, which we thought was pretty good considering that we only booked a few days prior, and for such a great location.
The service was friendly and helpful. The apartment itself was nothing special, but was spacious, had good facilities. The bed was the firm side of comfortable, which is a plus or a minus depending on your taste, a bit on the firm side for my taste, but okay.
There was evaporative A/C to control the temperature which was needed pretty much non-stop, as the apartment was very warm and stuffy for some reason (the warmth was strange as it was a first floor apartment with no direct sun), but this meant we had to leave our bedroom door open to the lounge area. Strangely the lounge opened onto what I suppose you could call a courtyard, but was a strange blank area in the middle of the building about the size of an elevator shaft, with a grate in the middle for drainage - not a place I'd wanna hang out in, but some small beautification and maybe a seat or two would go a long way to improving this area - though not having an opening to the street probably further reduced any minimal outside noise.
I imagine there'd be more noise if there was footy on at the MCG, but it seemed well protected, as the building faces away from the MCG.
All in all a good (not great) stay, but would recommend to others.

Room Tip: I'd ask for an outward facing room, and maybe one not that there's much view - it was the fo...

This is our first time at the Quest Jolimont and we were pleasantly surprised at the standard of the apartment we stayed in. It was very clean and comfortable. But what we really liked was the quiet location yet being so close to Rod Laver and the MCG it is very convenient being so close to these great stadiums and with the Tram service not far away we took an easy trip into the city we highly recommend these apartments and will return.

My husband and I, as well as friends have stayed at these apartments on at least 5 occasions and will continue to stay here when staying in Melbourne for short trips to the footy. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the MCG. It has always been clean and well maintained. Staff are pleasant. Carpark can be tight for larger cars and is limited spaces. Street parking is ok, depending on the day of the week and the time you have to get up to feed a meter!
Location is great for the MCG, but it is a residential area, so not much else close by except for a couple of larger chain hotels near, convenience store and a few other shops. Bridge Rd, Richmond and the City are certainly walkable - but takes about 15 - 20 mins comfortably.
Price is usually quite good for the 2 bed apartments. Quite often get good value on last minute or with Quest direct websites.

We booked a 2br apartment for one night for the footy. Location was great, literally 2 min walk from MCG.
Room was modern, clean and beds comfy. Couldnt really complain about anything. Staff were friendly and helpful.
We paid $370 for the night for 3 adults which wasnt cheap but still reasonable we thought, considering 2br apartmemts on a saturday night arent easy to find.
Would definitely stay here again if going to the footy or tennis.

Very convenient, quiet and clean one night stay proposition if you are going to the MCG for football. Under 5 minutes from hotel to your MCG seat. Internal room not recommended for long stays as you really need the blinds pulled down most of the time for privacy. Otherwise fine and good value for money.
