I styled there last weekend (2 nights in the bank building) with my partner and another couple. I was a little apprehensive because sharing a unit can be a little squishy but absolutely no problems at plum. We stayed on level 37, with a great view, and had 2 good sized bedrooms, one with ensuite and a second nice bathroom.... More

Came to Melbourne for a long weekend and family celebration. I needed somewhere close to the family and this was ideal as it was a 30 second walk around the corner. It was a 2 minute walk to the Casino, 7 minute walk to the Exhibition Centre and a quick tram ride to anywhere else you wanted to go. The... More

We stayed in the new building called The Bank. I am so torn writing this review because the apartment was really good, if a little small, very clean and very well equipped but it was on the 'highway' side of the building and the traffic noise was awful, fine when you are awake, chatting and watching telly but in the...

These apartments are located very close to Crown Casino, South Wharf DFO and to the quirky coffee shops of South Melbourne. We attended the Comedy Festival. We caught a taxi ($9) into the city but walked home via Southbank. The apartments are well appointed and have all that visitors need. They were light, bright and reasonably spacious.

It's about ten minutes walk from Flinders Street at the south side of Melbourne CBD to the Plum Apartments. An inconspicuous entrance from busy littered City Road takes you to a clean and tidy, if spartan, lobby. Here the friendly staff will offer a bag drop for early arrivals and late departures, or early check-in to a room if one... More

We stayed here in March for a function at Crown Casino, just a short walk away. Very clean one bedroom apartment with small kitchen and a washing machine and dryer in the bathroom cupboard. Everything you needed, we were on level 34 so no road noise. It is on the SKYWAY bus shuttle drop off, very convienent. There was a... More

I stayed here for 4 nights during Australian Tennis Open 2013. I stayed on the higher floors, 1 bedroom apartment with city view & extra space. Very close to Crown casino, 2 minutes walk. The only thing I don't like is the parking was very small & narrow. It only fits one car to drive up & park. Costs $12.00... More

Lovely apartment and excellent value for Melbourne. My only grumble is the noise from the freeway so I needed ear plugs but we were given a two bed place to compensate so I cannot really complain. The bathroom fan could not be turned off which was noisy too. We were told it could be turned off but we tried several... More

We stayed for 5 nights in January for the Australian Open tennis. We have come every year for 5 years and always pick 1 bedroom apartments to stay in based on location and price. This was the best value for money 4+ star place we could find and it turned out to be better than expected. We were put next... More
