This is a false Quest Accomodation. The occomodation. Terrible small space, dirty, smell of restaurant coming into room. Just bad. Dirty cups, floors, mould in shower, windows dirty with spider webs on inside. Block out curtains with no sheer curtain behind.

Checked in to find the shower didn't work. I went out for dinner and said to reception that I'm out but please do whatever needs to be done to fix it. It took 3 hours for the maintenance guy to come and be advised that it couldn't be fixed. I returned to the hotel to be advised the maintenance guy...

Located at the top of Lonsdale Street and just a quick stroll to Parliament train station this is ideally located for anyone wanting to stay near the centre of Melbourne. Not far to Bourke Street mall either.

Great rooms for families as there is plenty of space. Only a short walk to catch a tram into the center of the city and a 30 min walk to MCG. Unfortunately the Air conditioning was not very efficient and we had a fan in the room but as we were on the top floor we could keep the windows...

If you're going to the theatre in Melbourne, Quest Lonsdale is a great place to stay. Theatres are just round the corner. Very comfortable rooms. Helpful staff. Trams and train at the top of the street to explore the rest of Melbourne.

We checked in early on NYE hoping to relax before going out. The air con in the room was not working, and as there was a fan in the room, I can only assume the staff knew about it and chose not to advise us. We were promptly moved to another room, but both rooms showed signs of needing a...

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.
