Great value for inner-city Melbourne with lots of positives: close to St. Kilda Road tram, spacious apartment with well-equipped kitchen, excellent staff on hand. A bit dated with poor Internet but these are features that can be fixed.

Great location and value for money. Directly across from the gardens for an early morning run. Close enough to the city to walk - only about 15 minutes. The South Melbourne Markets are also only a short 10 minute walk away for great food and supplies for your unit

20 minutes walk to the city. Tram station is less than 300 meters. Amazing housekeepers. Room is so comfy and well equipped with convenient facilities. Staff are so friendly and helpful, willing to go extra mile.

Location is very convenient and the room was clean and comfortable. However, some of the staff need an attitude check. Rude and abrupt staff at check-in was not a good start. I've traveled all over the world and this was the first time payment has ever been demanded upfront. Overall, disappointed.

I recently attended a training course in Melbourne and the Quest was right across the road which meant no travel for me each day. Room was clean, quiet and spacious with a balcony, full kitchen and washing facilities.
