If you're looking for a value for money stay in Melbourne CBD, this is the place to stay! The prices are usually always reasonable, apartments clean and fairly modern. Very close to Crown and everything else in the southbank vicinity. Trams outside, Macca's across the road (for a quick easy meal) and great inner city views from your balcony (if... More

I have stayed at Plum Apartments three times and never had any issues. They are located within walking distance of the Crown Casino, convention centre and not too far from the city. The apartments are well set out and has everything you would need on a short or longer stay.

Apartments themselevs need an overhaul, including the linens. here were old festy blankets on the beds. Part of the... More

I recently stayed here for a business trip. I received one of the renovated rooms, as everything was shiny and new! I had a two bedroom apartment. The main bedroom was of a decent size, however the bed was effectively two singles pushed together. The 2nd bedroom would best be described as cosy and would suit younger children. The room... More

We didn't expect too much from our two bedroom apartment, but were pleased when we arrived. Pros:Check-in was easy and the living room of the apartment was quite spacious. There was an L-shaped kitchen with room for a 6 seat dining table and then an open plan lounge with couch and armchair and little balcony. The bedrooms were small, but... More

We stayed there as part of a group, occupying 3 separate apartments. I found the apartments to be clean, nicely laid out with a sufficient kitchen, stocked with everything you need. Yes, there were renovations going on and it would have been nice to have been told about them before we arrived. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Great location:... More

This property would have to be a favourite of mine. Clean, well services apartments that are comfortably appointed. Only concern was our ability to drive up the carpark.

After my recent experience in Plum Apartments - Southbank, I have no intentions to ever stay in a Plum apartment. On the internet you self rank yourselves 4 star accommodation but I would suggest you reasses this to maybe a 2-3 star. We recently stayed in room 11.1 between 3-5th Dec and were very disappointed with the experience, at the... More
