“Very Central, Great Two Bedroom Apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Second stay here. Even better room layout this time on one level. Excellent little kitchen, all laundry facilities in room so totally self sufficient.
Extremely central to CBD attractions (trams, Chinatown, shopping ect.) and the sports precinct (AAMI, tennis centre and MCG) also only 10-15 min walk away.
The only downside was that it's quite noisy ( city sounds) overnight so if your a light sleeper bring earplugs. Didn't bother our crew at all as we were exhausted from trying to cram all Melbourne has to offer into a week!

Stayed January 2014, traveled with family

We stayed at Quest Hero over the Christmas period 2013. We travelled with my elderly parents and could not fault the service or the apartment. We tried initially to book two bedrooms/two bathrooms but unfortunately this was not possible so we shared one bathroom, which was OK. Shower was fantastic! Bit noisy at night on a couple of nights but to be expected considering the time of year. Excellent location in the heart of the city. Staff were helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again

I booked a room for myself and two friends as we were in town for a convention at the Rod Laver Arena. I made the mistake of assuming that the reception would be open after 9pm but the building was closed, however the staff had left me keys and check in instructions in the key deposit box, so getting into the hotel was easy-much to my gratitude!
Apart from being a bit of a maze inside (only one lift takes you to the car park) the room was very comfortable and the location was brilliant- Chinatown is minutes away. There was a taxi rank very close which made getting to the arena really fast and convenent. The staff were very helpful and did not charge me for the trundle bed, which we didn't use. Nor did they charge me for an after hours call-out. The lady at the desk encouraged us to come again as she could get us a good group discount, which we probably will.

Overall experience of our 2 night stay was very good. We were staying at 2 bedroom type at 5th floor. This apartment was spacious and well equipped. Both bedroom had ample cupboard. The bathroom a bit small but clean. Spacious living and dining room. Good internet connection although a bit tricky for using more than one device. Relatively good value. Great location, just few minutes walk for various kind of food and getting on the public transport as well. Very helpful and kind front desk staffs. Entering from Little Collins to the reception with large/heavy luggage could be a problem as we have to go down through some stairs and no special path for wheeled luggage.

After booking a number of rooms then ringing to confirm a week before our stay it was very disappointing to find out our accommodation was not booked. We were told that someone would get back in touch with us, after waiting two days we received noting so my husband called again. He was then told nothing could be done our booking was not in the system and there was no availability. I would not recommend staying at Quest Hero as the management and staff seem useless and showed no compassion to the situation they had placed us in.

Quest Hero on Russell is in a great location! It's a little hard to find on a one way road, however one there its fine. Not all rooms have a view, however that's understandable being in the middle of a city and I wasn't in the room enough to care. The front desk staff were great, especially Louise. Is a place I would stay at again.
