Fantastic location, friendly and helpful staff, and serviceable units at a reasonable price make this a good place to stay. Unit was clean and tidy but could use a little maintenance and update of some bedding to keep it looking fresh. I would stay again.

I stayed here for easy transport to a work seminar. The studio apartment was clean but smelled stale. In the evening I found out this is because cooking smells come in from the adjoining room. The air con didn't work and the phone didn't work so I had to go to reception to organise heaters. Next morning I discovered the... More

Close to some great restaurants and the theatre district. The rooms need a little maintenance and updating. I rang Quest on Lonsdale direct as husband had previously stayed for business several times. Thinking it may be cheaper or at least the same price as found on internet, they would not meet the internet price so I booked over the net.

For for nights this one bedroom apartment was ideal. Central location meant a walk or free team to pretty much everywhere and lots of eating options right on the doorstep. A bit if noise early in the morning during the weekend but the weekends were quiet.

My family stayed at Quest on Lonsdale firstly because of its location. My daughter had an appointment at the Royal Children's Hospital so we wanted somewhere that was easy to find. We found the location was very good close to shops and restaurants. We were travelling as a family of 3 and it is difficult to find accomodation for 3... More

The reception Staff were friendly. The hot water service may need attention as it went hot and cold. When I paid by my debit card, the payment did not go through - so I was called some time later in the evening - when I was at a function - so was a bit annoyed as I had to go... More

I am a heavy hotel user in many locations including melb. I expected much better value for money. The 1 bedroom apartment had very small rooms, looked onto a brick wall and rubbish bins. The room facilities worked but were 'tired'.

The staff are always friendly and helpful. The hotel is easy walking distance to most of the city. The breakfast room service is great. The lady who delivers is so lovely. The hotel rooms are always clean. The hotel is not too noisy given that it is on a main road.

We all know those hotels that are convenient, but you make a lot of compromises. This hotel fits well and truly in that list, I would say too much so. Very basic room, dated to say the least and no real life in it, feels like a motel in the suburbs.... Bathroom compares with a unit I remember renting in... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
