This hotel is small, dingy, dark and uncomfortable. The room looked out onto a light well and you could see into other apartments and they could see in, unless curtains were pulled. The TV remote did not work properly, the tap in the bathroom and the spout were nearly falling off, the grout around the basin was cracked and dirty....

A great stay. We chose a 1 bed apartment as we needed space for all my daughters Uni stuff that we had to purchase. First time to Melbourne and it was memorable. Staff were lovely even trying to cheer me up on my sad farewell to my daughter day.

Room was old and standard of cleanliness from a maintenance point of view was poor. Grotty windows, marks on the bedhead, what looked like a blood stain/mark on carpet and hard bed. Couches were uncomfortable and looking at air conditioning vent was gross- thick with dust. Old is one thing, uncomfortable and poorly maintained is another. Can't really fault efforts...

This is a basic hotel, with adequate facilities. Service is mixed, some really good, others poor and perfunctory. Cleanliness the real issue - superficially clean, but most whitegoods, doors, bathroom cabinets and bath marked with fingerprints and dirty marks.

Central location. Room clean but all windows looked out directly on other apartments and their living spaces. TV didn't work properly and bathroom light wasn't working. As a result, not the greatest stay.

The hotel is conveniently located near the CBD, however we were staying for an extended stay of a month having just been relocated by work from overseas. The hotel purports to offer 'serviced apartments', however: - The apartment is actually filthy. There is mould in the shower, the carpets do not appear to have been vacuumed either before our arrival,...

Staff Unfriendly and Rude. No smile in the face at the time of check -in. Requested a Late check -out and the staff created lot of "FUSS". Great Location. Rooms small with very minimum amenities. Won't stay there again.

ENSURE you receive the discount parking ticket, and ask the receptionist to finish with one visitor and not try and book in more than one at the same time. Overall the apartment was VERY quiet and great for sleep, and clean. The morning staff was very friendly. Beautiful cafe across the road and coffee shop at the corner for an...

Came to Melbourne for a concert with another couple. Decided to stay at Quest because of location, price and I have previously stayed there before and found it to be a great place to stay. Easy to get too.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
