“Clean and Tidy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Well presented, clean and tidy. Great location if you are wanting to visit the casino. Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was a good size!

Rates are reasonable. We mostly stayed here because of the location, tram stop is 100m up the road!

We stayed here on a boys weekend. Clean, neat and all you need. If your looking for a room to live in this is not for you, suits people wanting to explore Melbourne and the south bank precinct.

Not badly priced either.

We would happily come back with families, safe balconies and wifi is cheap

Well located on City Road Southbank. Walking distance to most city attractions, including MCG and Etihad stadium. The City facing apartments are quieter if you are a light sleeper. Full kitchen and laundry facilities but no pool or gym. There are two tram routes within 100 metres of the apartment. Bus transfer to the Airport is from Spencer Street Station approx. 1km away. If using Skybus they will drop off and pick up from Plum Apartments.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the City are quieter, but cost a bit more. Worth the expense if you are a light sleeper...

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 :)
