Where are these positive reviews coming from?!? Old decor, cold pool, detatched desk staff (if they are even there), and a terrible breakfast (there are loads of other great options on every corner, don't eat here). Maybe I'm asking too much. What's that, you expect your phone to work? Too bad, it doesn't. The bathrooms are so small, you feel...

I stayed here on a Thursday evening with a friend and although this is a older style hotel it ticked all the boxes. Everything was nice and clean, comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast was simple but delicious. They even let us leave the car in their underground the next day as we had an...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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.
