I stayed at Quest on Dixon for two and half months during my recent business trip to Sydney. As everyone has mentioned, location is the major asset here, with so many happening places in the close vicinity. The staff is (like Sam,Ellen) courteous and friendly. Exec studio was well equipped with full kitchen, well lit room, spacious patio/balcony, good facility (cleaning) services. I stayed on 2nd floor and enjoyed the view of the 'busy' Dixon st over each weekend (it was well quiet otherwise)
The only thing I would like to mention is, though my room was booked with unlimited broadband internet, the internet passcode used to expire frequently and I had to get it reset (but yes, they used to reset it very quickly)
And yes, one more, since I had a late night check in, though I had confirmed prior to my travel about adequate arrangements for my after-hours check in, there was no one at the front desk and I had to seek help from one tenant to make a call to the on-call reception to have me check-in.
Apart from that, my entire stay was hassle free and enjoyed the long stay at this Serviced Apt. Thank you Quest for making my trip a memorable and cherishable.

Room Tip: Either book rooms on 2nd/3rd floor to have a nice overview of the Dixon St, or opt for the top floor. The floors in between (like 4th to 10th maybe) look directly into the appartments on opposite side of the street.

This was a great place to stay right in the heart of the beautiful city of Sydney! Self contained, convenient and comfortable as well as close to everything the city has to offer. Easy walking distance to Darling Harbour, George Street cinemas, entertainment centre.

Room Tip: We stayed on 4th floor. Quiet. Felt secure.

Reasonable price for what you get. Very large room (but I wonder for what purpose), noisy balcony that from the 6th floor looked directly into the apartments opposite. Pleasant staff but this is not a hotel.....it's a block of serviced apartments.
Servicing rooms was always late .... but if you're out and about, this is not so important. Worse bedmaking ever!
Great location....handy to Sydney's free bus loop. About a 10 minute walk to Central station.
Plenty of great cheap eating nearby if you like Asian food (which I do). The Uyghur restaurant right next door is a real treat for anyone who likes Xinjiang food. (Avoid the dreadful Japanese place right next door to this unless you're looking for cold cabbage and rice at $12.00 a bowl) and atrocious disinterested service.
Yeah...I'd go back. Sydney's overpriced but this place is more than adequate and a great location.

Room Tip: Looks like permanent residents have the higher floors with views. You might be lucky if you ask.

We were pleasantly surprised. its a nice little apartment hotel. We had all we needeed to get ourselves breakfast. A lovely large balcony. The sliding doors were good sound proofing for the most part.
Situated at the beginning of China Town and a bridge that takes you into the Darling Harbour / cockle bay restaurant area

We stayed for 4 nights.

Positives:
Location. Just a stroll to Darling Harbour.
Size of rooms - they were more then generous in size and a large balcony. Rare to ever find rooms this big!
Reception staff were friendly.


Negatives:

Beds. They were a big negative. We ended up with two singles, (meant to be a double room). This we could cope with but one sank to the floor when you sat on it. The bedding (sheets, pillowcases) were old and worn with holes or small rips.

Self Catering - It was good for boiling some eggs for breakfast, but that is as far as you could take it. There was a microwave and a portable hotplate in the cupboard, plus all the crockery and pots and utensils - just not set up for self catering.

Cleanliness - Wasn't filthy - just wasn't clean. When there's hairs in the bathroom its not that pleasant.
