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...

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...

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...

Rooms were average. Basic and clean which is all you need. Staff were friendly and we were able to leave the car in the undercover carpark a little over checkout time, so very helpful. The location was great for Lygon Street restaurants and not too long a walk into the city centre. Victoria Markets were also nearby.

I recently stayed at the Plum North Melbourne in Arden Street. I was a bit hesitant from reading previews about the lack of receiption at this location and other negative comments. All those fears were allayed when I arrived at the Swanston Street reception, late at night. There was a night manager who gave me keys and called for a...

Good value for @ $95 per night with a tight, last minute conference budget & Melbourne heavily booked at the time. Location is super convenient. The room was spacious, well appointed, spotless, bed & pillows very comfy. But like other reviews have said, the cooking smells are very pervasive & once outside your door this place feels like a budget...

Due to my illness, my husband was in charge of our 14 year old daughter taking the trip of her lifetime to see her idol Taylor Swift in concert. The staff were so friendly towards her and treated both of them so well. So happy to change the bedding arrangements, the manager did this with no fuss whilst chatting to...

The Plum Carlton serviced apartments are perfectly located in Swanston Street Carlton with a five minute walk north to Melbourne University and a 10 minute walk south to the CBD and shopping. Two blocks to the east is the vibrant Lygon Street whilst a five minute walk to the west will take you to the Victoria Market - in all,...
