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...

Stayed here for one night. One night was enough! Awful smell. Marks on the walls, dirty floors. Whole place felt dirty. Friendly reception staff. Will not be staying here again. Would not recommend this place even though it's relatively inexpensive.

Beds clean, but other items likes kitchen could have been spruces up. Had to throw bleach around bathroom as it had quite a bit of mould and I am very fussy when it comes to bathrooms. Wifi did not work. Location was fantastic with tram stop out the front & walking distance from everything. Able to put bikes in foyer...

I stayed at Plum Serviced Apartments Swanston St Carlton for the Melbourne Cup 2016 who allowed an unacceptable and potentially life threatening breach of security that completely wrecked my stay. This resulted in a stranger being able to access a key that opened my Hotel Room door. On Tuesday morning 1 Nov at 3.00 am I awoke to find an...

We stayed here after reading some of the reviews and took a chance for three nights in October.... it was of good value in a great location close to trams, Lygon street and several other places we wanted to visit within walking distance. The apartment itself had its ups and downs, the bedroom was of a good size, bed clean...

Stayed here for 4 nights - great value for what was very cheap Melbourne city accomodation. Tram stop right out the front but really walking distance to most things. Apartments were clean, quiet and nicely presented. Would stay again
