If your looking for cheapish accommodation in Carlton then this place is OK, its small, tidy, 5 minutes to Victoria Markets, on a tram line, 10-12 minutes to centre of Melbourne, nice pub across the road (The Queensberry), 10 minutes to the heart of Lygon St, has a self-service laundry on premises, upper floors may have a view, small but...

This apartment is just nice for both me and my sister for a stay of 4 nights. It's small and cosy but it has everything that you could ask for. They have excellent service and are very friendly. This place is also very near to the CBD and the Queen Victoria Market. The tram is just outside the apartment. Overall... More

Dont get me wrong. Love students and student life. Just dont like dirty rooms where the TV doesnt work. Where roomservice comes with a... More

Booked this hotel online and is was much cheaper. I was a good size one bedroom apartment with ensuite. Only a short tram ride or walk from... More

Received a value package from Qantas for 4 nights. Good access to trams and Carlton sights/restaurants etc. DEspite being on floor 1 on Swanston St side, not to noisy to disturb sleep. Room comfortable and kitchen with hotplates and microwave was handy. Quite spacious, although hall and entrance were a bit run down. Had a mixed experience with service -... More

Absolutely fantastic location, quiet, clean, good price - easy walking distance to CBD, Lygon St, Fitzroy, and Queen Vic Market. It's also right on the Swanson St tram line with a tram to CBD every few minutes. A bit difficult to find as the Skybus dropped us off around the corner quite late at night and there was no signage... More

Read the reviews before booking and was very nervous given the variation. So the thing is... just think about what kind of traveller you are. If you want a mint on your pillow and dream of the Hilton, then book there. If you are totally okay with 'okay' and want a great location, at a great price then this was... More

Off the back of this, I've stayed in Plum before, but at the CBD location instead in Melbourne which was a lot better facilities and cleanliness wise. I went in expecting the same but was a little disappointed. It still had some of the charm, but not enough unfortunately. Location still wasn't bad as Carlton has tonnes to offer, bedding... More
