After waiting nearly ten minutes for the receptionist to sort out the customer before's lost booking we finally got served. We had booked through wofit so be prepared to have them ask you to pay again as for some reason he told us we needed to pay! I told him I can show you the credit card transaction and he... More

Spent one night here at start of a business trip due to lack of accommodation available elsewhere. First impressions count and the first impression was pretty unimpressive. The reception area is small and feels more like a bank, with the receptionist locked behind a counter with glass windows. There is plenty of security, with swipe pass access to the building....

Good location - close to the CBD and the great eateries on Lygon street, however the apartments are Unserviced on weekends and public holidays which is apparently listed on the check in documentation but not on booking information. The halls and elevators are smelly and pretty dirty - we were there on a long weekend so therefore no cleaning. Beds... More

We stayed at the Plum Serviced Apartments (Carlton) for 2 nights in January 2015. This location, whilst not directly in the city centre was located close to a tram stop, and walking into the city only took about 10-15 minutes. Our room was a clean, simple, 1 bedroom apartment. A small amount of dust and a few cobwebs aside, this... More

We had booked 8 days at the Plum North Melbourne apartments for Christmas 2014 as it was close to family. On arrival we found the apartment to be filthy - basin and bathroom covered in dust, leaking shower, uncovered toilet bolts, dirty windows both inside and out, and we needed to clean the fridge before we could store our food...

Bed is comfortable. Aircon useless. Front office useless. Laundry coin operated downstairs. Much better accomodation available in Melbourne for same price.Smell in hallway really... More

We went down to Melbourne for a event called PaxAus and my birthday. We knew that check in is at 2:00pm but our flight was a early one. The Plum were able to store our luggage while we went to the first day of our event and came back later. Upon entering the apartment. It is just what me and... More
