Due to my illness, my husband was in charge of our 14 year old daughter taking the trip of her lifetime to see her idol Taylor Swift in concert. The staff were so friendly towards her and treated both of them so well. So happy to change the bedding arrangements, the manager did this with no fuss whilst chatting to... More

Two blocks to the east is the vibrant Lygon Street whilst a five minute walk to the west will take you to the Victoria Market - in all,... More

If you are smokers, this place is a heaven for you. If you have children, or if you do not want to be passive smokers, stay clear from this place. You can get a better place to stay at Tune Hotel, the hotel opposite of this building. Do not trust my review, just go there and you will find smoke... More

The apartments looks absolutely nothing like the photos and was basic to say the least! In a great place to walk into the city or take the tram The room was small, clean but very basic. The front door handle was basically falling off and it felt very unsafe! The Noise was unbelievable, trams and cars all night! No air... More

Excellent location along the Number 8 and 1 tram lines going to Melbourne University with plenty of cheap food options around. But although economical and clean, studio room had no views, a tiny TV with limited channels and no free wifi. a major negative is the lack of central cooling or heating. The split AC was noisy and did a... More

We stayed twice in this hotel in one bedroom apartment for a week each time. The rooms certainly need to be renovated, but it was clean and spacious, and we didn't expect more for this price. The kitchenette was well equipped. The staff were friendly. We definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for a place at walking distance from... More

Booked a 1 bedroom apartment for three nights. No Frills type place, very clean, comfy bed. Overall good value. Close distance to nice areas of the City. Friendly staff. Taxis are easy to catch out front. This is not the type of place I would spend much time other than sleeping.

I've previously been pretty enthusiastic on Plum Apartments but my two recent trips there have been disappointing. My most recent was a first-level room that was simply too noisy as it was adjacent to traffic on both sides of the room. My previous was situated away from the traffic but next to the elevator. If you can get the right... More
