The good: It's cheap accommodation just 5 minutes walk from Melbourne Central. They made up our room 1/3 nights we stayed there! The not so good: 1. The heater in the room did not work 2. The hot water in the shower was hit and miss 3. The bed is hard! 4. The parking is incredibly limited 5. The smells... More

Plum Apartments in Carlton are a reason place to stay if you are looking for cheap accommodation. A small couch, table with cooking facilities. The apartment is in a large block of units/rooms in the university district. It was fairly clean, the bed was fairly new with a firm consistency. Very small TV, certainly you could not watch it from... More

A great location if you're visiting Uni Melb, but that's where it ends. This is shoe box student accommodation which seems to be more someone's tax write off rather than a commercial customer focused offering. We stayed on level 1. Carpets in the hallway and the carpet in the hallway and the apartment was putrid. The appartments itself smelled terrible... More

Excellent location. Clean rooms. Although it was slightly noisy at night time due to trams, etc, it did not disrupt our sleep. Our room was on the first floor as well. The 1 bedroom apartment was a bit of a tight squeeze with the roll away bed, but this was easily folded up and put to one side every morning.

Once checked in I made my way to the room, the room was neat and clean, the layout was a studio apartment - kitchen and bathroom. Situated right at the front of the tram stop and only a short walk into the city makes it a great location. I stayed in a room located at the rear so it was... More

Nice size studio apartment, good location. Just walk 10 mnts to CBD. Trams in front of your door. Close to Melbourne University. Many restaurants around. We stayed at 2nd floor, so it was a bit noise from the road and trams. But overall we enjoyed our stay.

The hotel staff named Brad, is an extremely shameful aggressive person who is a shame for this hotel. He doesn't give a damn about the cockroaches in the room and can yell at you at the top of his lung. There were cockroaches on both rooms he gave me and he could not even be bothered giving any refund or... More

I stayed at plum carlton for a week. I arrived early in the day and I was able to store my luggage so that I could come back and check in after 2pm. I enjoyed my stay, my room was clean, tidy and in good condition. Rooms were serviced daily except for weekends, house keeping staff were pleasant and friendly... More

Stayed at the one bedroom apartment when we were in Melbourne for couple days. The room is quite old and the air-conditioner was very loud. There wasn't any undercover parking available throughout our stay there which caused us trouble to keep pay park on the street and having the vehicle moved every 1 or 2 hours. Not an ideal place...

My partner and I booked last minute, we suddenly figured out that check in was not available before two. The guy on the phone clearly hates his job and said in a very patronizing tone that it "cleeearly states on the website" and "I should know because I have stayed before" (yes ok about 8 months ago but I organised...
