Great location, we walked nearly everywhere. Convenience store only metres away made the stay easy, Cafes and restaurants all around. Very good value for money in the location, a minor cleanliness niggle with micro wave and pots not as clean as you would expect, all else fine. by John

A nice roomy apartment well set out in a good location in Melbourne CBD. Fine, professional staff and a good overall experience. We would recommend to other people for the convenience to trams, food and music venues.

No issues with our stay. We did have an issue as we booked for 12 between 3 2 bedroom apartments and asked for foldaway beds and for two singles instead of a queen. Was resolved by having two foldaways in each apartment but would have been nice if the issue hadn't occurred.

I stayed here for 3 nights over October. The first pleasant surprise is that I was up graded to a one bedroom apartment which was lovely. The apartment was clean, comfortable and overall quality was great. The best thing about quest on lonsdale is the location! So close to practically everything. Overall a great place to stay.

We chose this property for its location which was fabulous. The rooms are basic but clean. They need maintenance to check air conditioner and bathroom fans are in good working order as ours did not work. Staff are very friendly and efficient.

Room small and badly arranged. Minimal wardrobe space. CONSTANT NOISE from clothes dryer next door. Bed lumpy & I got a roller bed on my side as I am recuperating from a back op. Overhead shelves not set back so you'll hit your head. Water takes at least 5 min to become WARM. Water will unexpectedly turn hot or cold...

Stayed here a couple of times. Very handy to shopping, dining, transport. Apartment was very comfortable, love the history of the building. The little cafe downstairs was very helpful and we had a delicious breakfast that we could take to our room. Can get a bit noisy around midnight but we will ask for a "quieter room" next time.

Parking issues that were not resolved. Ended up getting stuck at the book gates during peak hour! The linen in my room was not clean. Towels had a very pleasant smell. Only 2 pillows in the roo. And both were lumpy and unclean.

Happy with the room cleanliness. Our room was close to the elevator and did cop a little bit of noise from other groups. Beds comfy. Plenty of pillows and warm bedding. Some of the bedrooms slightly small for extra suitcases to be on the floor - which would be my only gripe. Location was fab - walked everywhere.

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.
