close to everything including tours from Federation Square and the free circle trams and the Coles and wollies for food to have to meals in room. Chinese and Greek sectors just down the road and easily walking distances.

We stayed at a different quest before and loved it but it wasn't in the city it was about 20 min drive from city. So this time we choose quest in the city, the room was tiny but it did the job. Easy to stay there.

Had a lovely visit. Location was extremely handy to restaurants, shops and transport. Staff were friendly and helped us with early check in. Décor was nice and functional but just needed a thorough clean. Good value for the money.

Average. Has some problems checking in. Room was clean but dated. Louder than you would expect being on Lonsdale St. The lift was extremely slow and on the verge of breaking down every time I used it. The keycards are terrible and take 20+ attempts to get into your room.

Good location being close to the theater and China town. Accommodation was clean and tidy. Staff were very friendly and helped us with an early check in. I would recommend staying at the Quest on Lonsdale.

Nice comfortable room, friendly and efficient staff always made welcome. Good location close to lots of food venues and theatre and in my case St V's. Used this motel many times and it is great to be welcomed back each time, a nice personal touch!

Currently staying here, the bath tub and sink have black mold all around them. Made a complaint, but was told they could not do anything about it. the rest of the apartment is extremely worn and not maintained. The space is good but owner don't seem to give a damn.

we thought that the room need updating majorly because it was very dated. the room wasn't clean and the bathroom was not good. the shower leaked and went from hot to cold when showering and over all the whole apartment wasn't very nice to stay in. we chose quest on Lonsdale because we have stayed at many other quests in...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
