The criteria for our 4 night stay in Melbourne was for accommodation close to the Royal Exhibition Building (Carlton), the Princess Theatre in Spring Street and at a reasonable cost. The Plum Serviced Apartments in Carlton met these requests. The fact that the fabulous Lygon Street was just a short block away swayed our decision, despite the many negative reviews...

* Advertised as 24-hour reception, but if you arrive late, you have to phone a mobile number and wait. * Reception lady was v.helpful and even walked me to local shops as apprehensive about walking around on my own at night. * Rooms are quite spacious but smelled stuffy * no bed light lamps * I'd go back again but...

Would not let my worst enemy or mongrel dog stay here. Place reeks of cigarette and marijuana smoke, one lift works, beds are crap, television gets dodgy reception and air cond rattles like a two dollar hooker. Pissed off the travel agent we use for work related thought this would be a suitable venue. Guess they will be losing business...

Online this hotel looked clean and modern. This it was not. Rather worn and shabby with a view to a laneway looking down on used towels that had no doubt fallen from upper levels. Noisy visitors every hour through the night to the room across the hall was disruptive. Will never stay there again.

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...
