I was in town to catch up with friends from Brisbane. It was a last minute trip and needed a hotel for a Saturday night but everything was well over $200 per night. 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

Stayed for a week...got the room on sale. Checking in was smooth but it was hard to find the entrance at first. Hallway was a bit musty but the apartment is ok. On the smallish side but clean and the kitchenette's a plus.Location's great..walking distance to the CBD, queen victoria market. The only complaint is the noise from the street.... More

Not much value in this apartment for me. I stayed for two weeks with my girlfriend and was reasonably satisfied with our stay. It was clean, very small, very basic, pretty modern but without any wifi which was a nightmare when your moving into a new country. The best attribute of the apartment was definitely its central location. Located on... More

After reading reviews at the last minute was worried as alot of negative comments. Arrived and was greeted profesionaly as all instructions were explained clearly. Checked into room and was relieved. Okay for the price and location. The downside was the stuffy room as I think an airconditioning upgrade is a must. Also decided to check out the advertised modern... More
