Rooms themselves are fine but a few things occurred during my stay which means I will not stay at this hotel again: 1. $150 room bond taken at time of check-in which will take 5-7 DAYS for the hotel to refund to my bank account. This bond is more than the actual room rate and a refund time-frame of 5-7...

A big let down, will not book Quest on Lonsdale again, most of the furniture was marked / scratched, timber missing from the doorway to the bedroom, The mattress looked cheap and nasty. We actually asked to be moved to a better room, but were told the hotel was fully booked, so on that note we grabbed our bags and...

Would not stay here again. Given a room overlooking the alley way with lineup of skip bins. Even though we had booked many months in advance, and for a 3 night stay, the room given to us was like a last minute fit you in here room. The noise from, garbage trucks emptying skip bins, noise from rattling metal cages...

very disappointed this time we stayed. If not because of location my husband may not stay again. We had trouble with the room key, the car-park, the amenities and shower access. Lots of good features and great location for what we wanted this stay but we were disappointed this time.

Having stayed at other Quest apartments previously, I thought the Quest on Lonsdale would be a safe bet for a weekend stay. How very wrong. The first warning signs were the reception that looked like we had just arrived at a hostel. The room was smelly, stained carpet, stained walls with paint peeling, the shower floor had mould. The window...

Really good place to stay - on short notice. Was able to book on short notice with minimal fuss. Staff were really helpful and accommodating. Have stayed there in the past and will continue to do so. Location brilliant - close to theatres.

I like the kitchen in the room. It is so nice to have one in room. The hotel is also near the Telstra office. It is very good for us to do business with Telstra guy. Your hotel is the first choice when we made a business trip with Telstra in Melbourne.

Title says it all. Room was clean and spacious. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, theater and museum. Only one staff member on reception and had to wait to drop bags off and again to check in - but that is a minor gripe on an otherwise great experience.

Whilst in a good location for business in Melbourne, this property is not one I would recommend for a long stay. Ask for a room rear facing unless you want to hear traffic noise all night and BYO pillows unless you enjoy waking with a stiff neck - oh and bring a portable heater if you enjoy sleeping in a...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
