We found the apartment located at Arden Street North Melbourne very good value for the price. The apartment was only 1 room but housed a sitting area, kitchenette with all facilities (including fresh milk supplied in the fridge and a washing machine), a very large double bed and a roomy bathroom. They provided quality toiletries, iron, board and hairdryer. Location...

I had three nights at Plum and I found all the staff at reception friendly and helpful and with some great breakfast, coffee and dinner recommendations. It's a fabulous location, near to the Victoria Markets and Lygon Street and only 10 minutes into Melbourne Central. The tram stop is a minute away. The room was clean and comfortable. I had...

Rooms are average, bathroom is small. They told us they were going to make up the spare bed and pull out the double bed for us as there were 3 of us. They never did and we had to make our beds ourselves. Wasn't enough towels for us either we had to request more. My main concern is that next...

This is a mixed permanent residential building, with some services apartments. The room was very clean and in good condition. The blinds were broken, so the neon lights from the street were a bit intrusive, but you can sleep with the street noise anyway. He lift and hallways stink of either garbage or some kind of foul cooking stench. It...

Stayed here for one night. One night was enough! Awful smell. Marks on the walls, dirty floors. Whole place felt dirty. Friendly reception staff. Will not be staying here again. Would not recommend this place even though it's relatively inexpensive.

I stayed at Plum Serviced Apartments Swanston St Carlton for the Melbourne Cup 2016 who allowed an unacceptable and potentially life threatening breach of security that completely wrecked my stay. This resulted in a stranger being able to access a key that opened my Hotel Room door. On Tuesday morning 1 Nov at 3.00 am I awoke to find an...
