Good value for a hotel in this location. The rooms have been done up nicely and are very comfortable. As it's an older hotel that is done up - there is a 1950's feel about the place when you're walking to your room past the groovy pool area. The rooms have everything you need and there is parking under the... More

My wife and I recently spent a total of nights at this property which is brilliantly located in Drummond Street in Carlton and a 2 minute walk to Lygon Street with all the excellent food outlets and restaurants.

The best thing about BW Plus is its location. Grattan Street is a cross street with Lygon, near Faraday Street and all the cool food, wine and shops that you may want. A few odd things like charging machine coffees to your room with the breakfast deal - or you could have instant - and the shower head which pointed... More

Booked 2 nights here, a Friday and Saturday night. The hotel was buzzing. Chose this due to its proximity to Lygon street, the pool available for use, the car parking provided and the buffet breakfast. Was more than impressed, this place is seriously the best restaurant we've stayed at, the staff are extremely friendly and always go out of their... More

Great setting. Lovely hotel, perfectly styled. Rooms had everything you would expect in a 4 star hotel. Staff went above and beyond. Car parking was a real bonus. Location was great, easy access to main roads around the city. No to mention a short walk awY from the city centre. I will definitely be back when working in the area.

Pleasantly surprised - fabulous position right next to Lygon St, great room, very clean, friendly and helpful staff, internet worked well. Parking was tricky (tight spaces, full on weekend nights) bit we found street parks as long as we left early in the morning. Would definitely stay again. Really did "fit the bill".

Stayed here for the AFL Grand final weekend. Room price is reasonable. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We had breakfast included which was okay. But could have used a coffee machine as this was not self service.

Very disappointed with our visit here and did not enjoy our time. The room had a very strange layout and felt thrown together we also had the unfortunate experience with an especially uncomfortable bed. The walls were paper thin and felt very uncomfortable listening to our neighbours conversations all evening. For the price we were paying I was expecting quality,... More

Have stayed here many times when visiting Melbourne. Location is fantastic close to everything either by foot or tram. Rooms are clean. Bathroom a little small. Ask for a room in the far wing. These are larger and quieter. No ramp at entrance.. Need to drag cases up the stairs. Breakfast always good. Restaraunt s hardly open. But there are... More

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighborhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
