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

This is slightly run down but functional in a great location. I suspect there is a big variation in rooms. We had a group stay - some people had no problems with their room/stay while others had big issues with one or more of the following: 1) Noise (there is a fair amount of street noise in the rooms facing...

The room was a good size, and the location is great. Noise from the street wasn't too bad apart from when people walk past yelling. On one night i could hear the TV in the room next door despite it not sounding as though the volume was particularly high. The room i was in was in need of an update,... More

Room did not match internet photos - Certainly not 4 star, tired and in need of renovation / update. Not clean, noisy, broken shower & basin, blind in bedroom broken, cooktop in kitchen not working. No spare pillows / blankets. Extremely disappointed and was not able to get a refund. Stayed only 1 night of the intended 4

Its 3:17 in the morning with a raging party going on next to my room. I'm absolutely terrified by the drunken hooligans next door screaming expletives at being asked to turn the music down by management. This is night 2 of a booked 3 night stay. The first night was spent freezing in my room (107) as the air conditioner... More

Nice combination of cleanliness, comfort and value. The location is central without suffering the noise problem you can get with Melbourne CBD hotels and the staff are efficient and friendly. Hard to fault.

Staff were wonderful and helpful. However the rooms were average. The Air Con in our room wasn't working and Melbourne in Winter can get cold. Little portable air con was put in as a replacement, did a fine job. Just not what you expect when staying somewhere like Quest. Aweful bed and pillows.

The hotel is OK if you are traveling on business and just want a place to sleep. The service tries hard but fails to deliver. It is located close to the main theaters and access is good. Walking distance to most things.

Small but very clean and well appointed apartment. Excellent location with an IGA next door and Chinatown in the next street. Walking distance to theatres and the city centre for shopping. Close to parks and transport. The pillows were a little lumpy but the bed was very comfortable.

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.
