“Huge apartments 5 min walk to city.”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment while travelling as a family group. Quest offer a servivced apartment - 24 hour reception desk, but limited 'to room' service. Rooms cleaned 6 days / week, no room service.

The apartments are located behind the Eureka Skydeck in Southbank - an area that is mainly made up of apartments and hotels. A short walk leads you to a bridge crossing the Yarra River and straight onto Flinders St train station.

We were located on the 18th floor with great views over the river and the city. The apartment had 2 bedrooms (one Queen, the other with 2 single beds pushed together), an ensuite, bathroom, laundry, kitchen and lounge. The whole apartment would have been at least 80 square metres. The apartments are fairly new - carpet still very fluffy.

Kitchen was stocked with cutlery, china, pots etc for 4 people. Significant extra bedding to cope with the cold Melbourne weather (all night air conditioner wasnt enough when it was only 5 degrees outside).

Only real issue with the apartment was the towels - a 4 person apartment, but only 4 towels in the room. Ladies - you'll need to pick up extra towels if you are planning on washing your hair.

Would recommend for any groups travelling to Melbourne. Price was more than reasonable given the alternative of getting 2 x separate hotel rooms instead.

I stayed here on a recent business trip at the Convention Centre and travelled with work colleagues. I found the location convenient for business and very close to lovely restaurants. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms themselves were clean and tidy, great view, very spacious and comfortable and enough privacy for 3 work colleagues.
I would certainly recommend this property and would return.

I have been statying here since 2007. I come back because of the fantastic location, the great service and the fantastic staff. The rooms are fantastic, well looked after spacious. When in Melbourne for longer periods I often bring my wife for the weekend. If anyone (be it businessperson or couples) wants to come to Melbourne and experience a great place to stay and be treated well then this is the place to come. Close to everything, yet out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Melbourne. Great Hotel keep up the great work

Room Tip: Opt for the rooms that overlook the Kings Domain and the MCG

For the last 3 years my wife and I have been staying here regularly and have found the overall facility just great. The staff are always so friendly and accommodating, the location so central to everything Melbourne has to offer and the apartments are as good as you would get anywhere. Also very impressed with how quiet it is at night so a good nights sleep is never a problem.

We have stayed here several times while visiting Melbourne. A very conveniently location, the apartments are well-maintained, well-stocked and very comfortable. Staff always pleasant and helpful. Very good location for MCG and Rod Laver Arena. Just a short walk along the river.

We arrived shortly before noon and our apartment was not ready. After an offer to check our bags or park the car, we were promised our room by 2. The front desk called us on our mobile at 1 and told us our room was available. Thought that was nice of them. Our apartment was an executive 2 bedroom on the 17th floor. It was very well equipped and modernly appointed. The view of the city was great from the MCG to the harbor. The location was an easy walk anywhere and proved a great location for our 4 days in Melbourne.
