Lovely place to stay, surprisingly quiet, very clean. The staff couldn't help enough. Perfect spot to stay. Close to a many different types of restaurants. I loved walking around looking at all the well maintained historic buildings.

Quest is great if you do not plan to sleep. The location is great however, the windows are not standard windows that seal so the already noisy location means that you may as well leave the windows open. This has been by far the worst place I have stayed and I barely slept the entire stay. The bedroom was next... More

The room was noisy next to the lift on the first floor, overlooked the alley or front entrance, constant noise from Lygon Street plus the noise from restaurants emptying bottles into the skip bins continually until closing. Management failed to talk to other guests in adjacent room on first night, who were a choir practicing singing one song for nearly... More

The place is cozy and very neat. Staff always helpful. Would recommend staying here, close to everywhere and not super expensive. All the facilities in the apartment were perfect, from the comfortable bed to the lovely shower; both of which were greatly appreciated after a 24hour trip!

Nicely and fully equipped and quiet apartment with parking facilities at walking distance from the lively Lygon Street, main city attractions and the University of Melbourne. Staff is kind and supportive.

I have stayed at Quest hotels in and around New Zealand and Australia and it's a formula that works for me as you know exactly what you are getting. The serviced apartments have separate bedrooms to sitting rooms and a bathroom. There is also a kitchenette and dining seating area. Although not exciting with no view, the rooms are clean... More

I stayed only two nights but had a good experience. The apartment was clean and had everything I needed. I was a bit worried about noise because it was off lively Lygon Street but had no problem with noise; in fact very quiet. Only problem was that I had a view of a brick wall from my sliding door. I...

As always a very good night at a central but quiet location. Good size 1br apartment with everything that you could need for a short stay. Good on site car parking is available if you book early. Surrounded by restaurants with a wide range of cuisines not just Italian

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.
