“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and were impressed overall. The room was a good size and the hotel is in a quiet area away from the hustle & bustle of the main city. We were slightly apprehensive having read some of the other reviews but we got a great deal for 3 nights so though we would give it a go.
On the downside the hotel is quite far from the main tourist area of St Kilda and also Melbourne city itself however as we had a car and free parking is included this was not a problem to us. The tram stops nearby so its not really an issue without a car either!
The rooms are clean and of a good size and the pool was a nice bonus too.

Room Tip: The spa bath room was a nice bonus and not too much extra

I booked a standard room and it contained a very comfortable King Size bed plus a single bed. $155 a night. These apartments are perfect for an overnight stay. Rooms were clean and tidy. Spacious with its own private courtyard. Was very pleased.

I stayed at the Quest East St Kilda in January for 7 days.

If you are coming in on a late flight be sure to let reception know the day before. There are limited hours in reception so they will organise a key if you let them know.

Overall the facilities were fairly good.

The hotel was clean and the staff were attentive.

I would definitely stay here again.

If you are looking for a 5 star hotel matching those in the CBD this is probably not the right place for you. If you are looking for a place to stay that has good facilities and plenty of space with value for money then its probably a good option for you.

I must also comment on the WIFI facilities at Quest as they were super fast. That was a big plus for me considering I was there on business.

Rooms were old, although a friend had a renovated one. Ours looked like it hadn't been touched since 80s. It was clean in the room but the communal areas were filthy. I wouldn't recommend it particularly given the price. Not value for money.

We have stayed here twice in two months now and found service and staff great. Great room, comfortable and value for money. Will continue to stay here whenever we visit Melbourne. Highly recommend to others! The local restaurants are also excellent and great value.

Hotel furniture was quite old and room was not that clean. Hotel staff was really friendly, and accommodating. I was a bit disappointed when I saw hotel because it didn't look anything like I imagined based on the photos from hotels.com. A/C was bit noisy, terrace was dirty but I didn't really mind it much because the price was good and people working at the hotel did everything to make my stay pleasant and enjoyable. Location is also good, and surrounding area is really nice. I really enjoyed early morning walks to Monash university.

Room Tip: Don't expect too much

Rooms are very old specially furniture and kitchen, need a must renovation, corridors bit smelly some times due to old building.
Staff was good and facilities are fine also, just it is a bit old. That's it.

Cheers
