It's about ten minutes walk from Flinders Street at the south side of Melbourne CBD to the Plum Apartments. An inconspicuous entrance from busy littered City Road takes you to a clean and tidy, if spartan, lobby. Here the friendly staff will offer a bag drop for early arrivals and late departures, or early check-in to a room if one is available.
Fast lifts give access to small lobby areas with a few rooms on each floor. The air conditioned apartment we had was spotlessly clean, well planned and equipped for self caterers and included a full size washer and dryer. The busy city motorway lies close by but triple glazing on the balcony door (few people will use the balcony, overlooked from other apartments and with the city din very evident) ensured that noise was limited.
There is a Coles supermarket and other handy shops and takeaways a few minutes walk down the road towards St Kilda. The excellent South Melbourne Market lies in the same direction.
If you want to pay with a non-Aussie plastic card - either debit or credit - you will be stung for the usual Aussie rip-off of 1.5% on top. Do note that unusually this applies to debit as well as credit cards here.
