          Comfortable and adequately appointed in the centre of the Melbourne CBD. Close to transport, entertainment, shopping and restaurants in the city. Trams at the front door, China town and major shopping establishments just around the corner. Friendly staff and comfortable well appointed rooms.

          Plum in the centre of Melbourne's shopping district, this hotel offers the perfect base to explore Melbourne. The Swanston rooms are larger allowing more room however the smaller, standard rooms are more than adequate.
