We had two nights at Plum apartments. 14th floor overlooking freeway. Windows are double glazed and room was quiet. Reception staff could not be more helpful about all enquiries. well done! Tricky to get to off the main road. turn in before McDonalds and come in the back way if you can find it. Crown Casino is about 500m away,... More

I have stayed here four times and will keep returning when I have need to visit the Southbank end if Melbourne. The apartments are roomy, clean and have all the things you need to be a bit more self sufficient than you can be in a hotel. The city side rooms are a little noisy on Friday and Saturday nights...

Two families booked two, 2 bedroom suits next to each other (on the same floor) as our children wanted to be close together. Arrived and told that our apartments were NOT on the same floor, they were actually in two completely different buildings!!!! This is despite the fact that I confirmed with the telephone booking staff twice that we were... More

I stayed in a 1 bed city view apartment for 4 nights. The apartment was fairly spacious and comfortable. Because of Melbourne's freezing temperatures in winter, I did not make use of the balcony it comes with. It is a self contained apartment and has everything you need including washer, and dryer. The only negative things about the apartment were... More

I booked a 1 bedroom apartment at the Plum apartments. On check in I was told that my apartment was next door in The Bank Apartments, no explanation was given as to why. The apartment did not have a separate bedroom, the bedroom had to be closed off with sliding doors, when these were closed you could not get out... More

3 x couples stayed here (room 3305) to see a concert at Rod Laver in July 2013, so we booked a 3 bedroom penthouse and were quite happy with how large the apartment was. The location of this place is fantastic! There is a 24hr Mcdonalds across the rd, there is a tram stop 30m from the door, and Crown... More

I originally hesitated about booking Plum because I'd read some unfavourable comments, but there were some good ones too and I took their advice with choosing a city view apartment. The apartment was on the 23rd floor in the Bank building and we had a clear view to the hills in the East and towards the city to the North.... More
