“Limited car parking and interrupted sleep”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Apart from the lovely friendly Lisa at the counter, this was not a great experience. My daughter and I arrived with an hour to spare for the Devo / Simple Minds concert to find no car parks even though one was booked. The helpful Lisa rescued the situation but I spent 30 minutes going to another car park. The room was supposedly an upgrade but was quite basic for $170 per night - the sofa bed I was expecting didn't exist. At 3am, someone at the front door started ringing every room in sequence including ours twice until we took phone off hook - then listened to endless irate neighbours responding to their calls. Very tired in the morning - walked two blocks with our luggage to get to our car. On the positive, the room was clean and TV large

Room Tip: Great location if going to entertainment centre in darling harbour - double check car park booking...

We stayed at the Quest on Dixon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was excellent, staff friendly and the location perfect.

We stayed at the Quest on Dixon for 6 nights. The apartment we had was great. We had good views to Darling Harbor, Westfield Tower.
The location of the Quest on Dixon was so good....It was right beside Chinatown where we had a number of good Chinese meals. Paddy's Markets was just a 8 min walk. We were also just near the Chinese Gardens which is well worth the visit.
It was only a 15 min walk to the central CBD of Sydney.
We would have no hesitation in staying here again.
The staff were extremely friendly and any request we asked for was no trouble to them.

My family stayed at this hotel on our recent trip to Sydney.
Great location, great service, great clean room.
My only problem is that I could hear the lady next door swearing at her partner, thankfully it didn't last all night. I couldn't hear any other neighbours so they must have been yelling at each other.

... for a stay in Chinatown. Absolutely perfect location for your typical tourist. Just a short walk to Darling Harbour . The apartment was huge (for 2 people) and, despite overlooking busy Dixon St, was surprisingly quiet.
Would definitely stay there again.

We were only staying one night at the end of a holiday but this was a huge disappointment. The location is pretty good, being close to Darling Harbour but the outside is quite scruffy looking and the foyer looks nothing like the photo shown on their ads. Not only was there no balcony but the window looked over an enclosed area with a corrugated roof below and rusty machinery! The manager was quite nasty when our credit card was declined (we had been travelling for 5 weeks and had no problem with it before or since) as he was demanding $200 security deposit (room already paid in full weeks before on same card!).
There are no staff on premises overnight so any emergency or a key that failed to operate the security system would have made life very difficult. We will not book Quest again! We would agree with other reviews in regard to the drivers licence copying. We visited friends at a nearby Meriton which was everything we had expected to find, and so much more(pool, spa, reception fully staffed, separate bedroom, lounge/diner/kitchen and washer/dryer) - for $22 per night more! No comparison!

Room Tip: I have no reason to suppose any of the other rooms are any better- the manager was dealing with anot...

pleasantly surprised at the great quality, cleanliness, value and incredible quietness despite busy but handy location to many attractions. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Foxtel inclusion would have been nice but had no time to watch anyway.
