Good, noise from restaurants empting bins was the only annoying part of the stay. Movies through the TV would have been nice, as they have this in other hotels. The staff were friendly and always very helpful

I love staying at Quest. Always friendly staff who are willing to help. Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Reception staff always smile and welcome me on my return each day. A real pleasure to come back to.

Quest Carlton provided my family with a clean, quiet and spacious refuge away from the busy streets of Melbourne. The proximity to restaurants and cafes suited us perfectly. The proximity to the CBD was also perfect. We found it close enough to walk to the CBD but far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle. Our room...

Outstanding facilities. The apartment was perfect. Location is great and the staff were incredibly helpful. We would recommend this to all visitors! Close enough to walk to the city but the tram was close too.

The Quest Carlton apartment was nicely presented, it included comfortable beds and the Quest was well positioned for Lygon Street, the Melbourne Museum and the City. The service provided at reception was very helpful.

Handy location, reasonable ammenities, whilst a little bit on the upper end of pricing its closeness to the restaurants on Lygon street is handy. Only had 2 issues, one with the internet login where the staff struggled with the IP details and one where the room servicing didn't occur.

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
