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,...

If you are smokers, this place is a heaven for you. If you have children, or if you do not want to be passive smokers, stay clear from this place. You can get a better place to stay at Tune Hotel, the hotel opposite of this building. Do not trust my review, just go there and you will find smoke...

Excellent location along the Number 8 and 1 tram lines going to Melbourne University with plenty of cheap food options around. But although economical and clean, studio room had no views, a tiny TV with limited channels and no free wifi. a major negative is the lack of central cooling or heating. The split AC was noisy and did a...

We stayed twice in this hotel in one bedroom apartment for a week each time. The rooms certainly need to be renovated, but it was clean and spacious, and we didn't expect more for this price. The kitchenette was well equipped. The staff were friendly. We definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for a place at walking distance from...
