              Disappointing stayWas disappointed with room. Broken light fittings, loose carpet and room looked nothing like the Agoda photos. Small dining and lounge area basically unable to be used as not enough room to sit more than 2 people at the table (2 bedroom apartment) which was pushed in corner and no where to move to. Chipped kitchen benches, fridge with no door shelves, the list goes on. Lots of road noise in one of the bedrooms and light straight thru flimsy blinds make for an unpleasant experience. Won’t stay here again as many nicer, quieter, newer and better places nearby. We felt like we got a bad room cause we didn’t book direct with hotel (used Agoda) Suggest you look elsewhere nearby as location is good but hotel tired and very run down.

              Very friendly staff. Clean room. Exceeded my expectations.”

              The bed was comfortable, it was warm enough in the room without a heater. I used the microwave, it was clean as were the dishes and I was very comfortable, it was quite spacious and I would stay there again. Its close to bourke st for trams into the convention centre and close to tons of restaurants and theatres.

              Good location but aircon not working”

              Air-conditioning didn't work (didn't a few months ago when I was here either). So I woke up in the middle of the night in my windowless room, feeling very overheated. Had to go and ask for laundry powder as there was none in the apartment. Apart from that everything was fine. Not a very fancy place but great location. It would be better if there was a speaker for music, like the Quest in Adelaide.

              Great location but could be cleaner”

              To be honest we half expected it from experience as it is Quest, but it’s not as clean as we’d hope from a hotel of this price. The bath needs a scrub and the furniture is grotty and worn. Highlight was the bed- it was very comfortable! Laundry was free to use but was a hassle as it was behind reception and not in the room.

              This was probably the worst Quest i have stayed in..”

              On arrival we where greeted with a sign stating the AC was being upgraded. A portable AC had been dumped in the room it was not hooked up, i had to rig it up with cushions at the window to get some sort of AC.. The room was cluttered and very shabby. It was dated and dirty, it had a broken power socket and, a light in bathroom was broken and exposed.. The advertised gym was apparently not available due to a fall out between Quest management and the gym operator. Location is good but that is the only plus

              Good affordable apartment in CBD”

              Good things were the amount of space and the separate bedroom that mutes almost all lights and noises from outside. We got one of the best sleeps we had here during our australian vacation. Cooking is fine. The air conditioning could be better and less noisy. The apartment could do with some small fixes and some new pans, which apparently are planned for the next few months.

              Great location!”

              Great location, room was spacious although quite basic inside, it was just fine for our stay. one staff member (I think his name was Leo?) was very friendly and very helpful, whereas the other staff on front desk didn't greet us or say hello when we arrived, didn't acknowledge us when we were waiting in queue to check out and were generally quite despondent, as if they didn't enjoy being there, which dampened the experience. It would be great if staff just said hello - it would have made us feel so much more welcome.

              Good location but average hotel”

              Hotel has a very good location. Apart from that hotel is pretty average. There was no aircon/heater installed in the room so the hotel had placed a ventilator which in my case had to be used to warm up the room. This was not ideal as temperature very difficult to control

              Fairly ordinary appointments but it is clean, adequate and has all the basics for accommodation in a fairly convenient location. Lots of choices for food nearby, ranging from basic to exotic and fine dining, take your pick. Not too far to the trams. Staff are very approachable and helpful and get a plus, plus for that. My travel companion and I enjoyed the stay.
