Great staff, location, hot prepared to order breakfast, and top service and value for money. Don't even think of staying elsewhere in the CBD. Just a 5 minute walk from Southern Cross and within the Free Tram zone.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here after the A-League soccer grad final on a Sunday night. It was adequate and perfectly catered for our needs. I believe that we stayed in a studio queen room (room 302). The hotel room did not reflect the floor plan as illustrated online and was smaller than we anticipated from the photos we... More

I stayed at the Alto for three nights with my family. We booked a two bedroom apartment with kitchen/et al and another Petite queen room. When we arrived at the hotel, there was carpet repair works being done on our floor, but the staff had already emailed me about it before. They were friendly and courteous. Due to the delay... More

We stayed here over Christmas and it was a lovely place in a fabulous location, with easy walking distance to the city centre. The apartments were very clean and modern (only slightly being let down by the temperamental/slow wifi). What made this place so brilliant was how the AMAZING staff went above and beyond their jobs. They were very helpful... More

AltoMelbourne, General Manager at Alto Hotel on Bourke, responded to this review

On first read this could have been any of our wonderful team. However this was our super special Assistant Manager - Jenny. She does lots of great work every day and certainly went a step further this day. Glad to hear that her effort was appreciated. Gary Stickland General Manager - Alto Hotel More

We recently stayed at the Alto. Very warm and cosy atmosphere and great service from the staff. Nothing was a problem. We will stay here again. The rooms are fantastic with attention rot detail. Theres a laundry and a relaxation room to chill out and also a library.

We had a wonderful weekend which was affordable. I love that the Alto is eco friendly but also provides excellent facilities. The food was lovely, the room luxurious. We will definitely be back and recommend to our friends.

This modest hotel represents excellent value, it was so Central I was worried about noise but double glazed windows meant we had a good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was good except for the coffee machine .They should get a real espresso machine,that is our only complaint everything else was excellent.

This is an excellent restful place to escape to after a hard day in Melbourne. Rooms are fantastic, Staff are wonderful and the food in the restaurant is great. Their green ethics are also a huge plus

My husband and I were in Melbourne for our honeymoon late April-May 2015, a total of 6 nights. We were extremely pleased for staying at Alto. First, the room. We stayed at the Queen Studio room and it comes with a mini kitchen with a sink, microwave and some cutleries. There are some cookies and coffee/tea replenished daily. Bed is... More

Stumbled across this place when looking for a mid-price CBD room. Impressed with the service, ambience and value. Full Foxtel and Wireless inclusive and a clean, modern and comfortable room. Good breakfast choices. Only downside is the cramped public and dining space. Definitely worth a return visit!
