I stayed here over the wknd! Great 24 hour check in staff was friendly and helpful. Quick walk to the Crown. Comfortable rooms. Some better signage would be helpful I had trouble finding the place have never been to Melbourne before. Will recommend to friends and family

Stayed a Plum apartments last weekend. What a great place. Within walking distance to the Crown Casino and South Wharf. The rooms were very clean and well equipped the only thing I would suggest is they include a dust pan and broom in the laundry. The bed king size was the most comfortable bed I have slept in at any accommodation I have ever stayed. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Will definitely stay her again next time in Melbourne

I stayed @ Plum last week and was impressed with what I got for the money.
Even at my late check in off 11.30pm, the staff were bright eyed and bushy tailed and were very helpful and informative.
My $160 got me a two bedroom apartment overlooking the city. It was clean and tastefully decorated. In the kitchen it had all the bits and pieces you would expect and new Miele appliances.
There was plenty of extra bedding.
On checkout the staff arranged appropriate transport and were polite.
I will be using Plum again as the value for the location was great.

These apartments made for a nice stay in the melbourne CBD. Just out of the way to avoid most the noise of the city (mind you we were quite high up) the appartment itself was really large and nicely furnished. Our daughter (1) had plenty of room to run around. Cot provided free of charge. The balcony was enclosed, had a nice view of crown casino. Not being able to access the lift without your room key made it feel secure. Loved the batheroom. Over all was a nice experience, would stay here again :)

Small, clean, comfortable, basic, budget style apartments ... certainly good enough for a few nights stay. Close to the Casino and Southbank restaurants. Staff were polite and helpful. One of the elevators weren't working during our stay and we received a box of chocolates to thank us for our patience.

This are nice clean apartments in a good location. They are small and basic and provide what you would expect for the price. We had a two bedroom apartment, my only gripe is that the single toilet/bathroom is probably a bit underdone for the amount of occupants.

I booked a very spacious 3 bed room apartment for a Saturday night out with friends - we were on the 33rd floor with the most amazing view over the city. Everything was clean, and well cared for - we were enjoying ourselves so much in the room we were nearly late for our dinner booking at Crown!
Will definately be staying here again, but will park at Crown - the car park is crazy tight!
