Also stayed for a week to attend the Melbourne Flower Show in Carlton Gardens, explore Melbourne city & use as a base to explore the gardens in the surrounding suburbs. BOUQUETS: Location is excellent for short, level walks (5 - 8 mins) to surrounding Asian restaurants, Lygon St restaurants, Queen Victoria markets, the Hop-on-Hop-off City Circle tram; secure parking for...

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

We booked this hotel for a weekend away after I read the reviews on tripadvisor and was very worried as they were'nt the best. Was pleasantly surprised as actually were fine they had a small kitchen area that had everything you required, the bathroom was fine all clean and well equiped. The only draw back was the tiny single beds,... More

Unfortunately we visited Melbourne the race week. Most accommodation was very expensive. Chose the Plum Apartments purely for the price. Fairly small rooms, reasonably clean, however the hallway on the 2nd floor was pretty gross. Dried vomit on the carpet, used mattress outside a room and a constant smell in the air. No cleaning, changing of towels etc over the... More

We booked through a website on a busy race-day long weekend. After reading the reviews on TA, we were a bit worried. But it was all good. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Quite compact but sufficient for our needs. The reception staff deserve a special mention, very helpful and top service. Well done. Convenient to QVB, trams and Lygon... More

Should have checked tripadvisor before booking - lesson learnt! Arrived at 10am and was told we could not check in until 3pm so if you're with littlies do take that into consideration. Also, we had booked for a spare bed - just didn't realize we had to make it up as the foldout bed was left outside the door. Room... More

Once we arrived we were shocked by size of it, but once you spend a day there, its all good. Enough space for everything. Very clean and importantly next to CBD, we could walk everywhere. Restaurants around the corner and wollies 15min away. Tho you need to pay for parking. Would recomend.
