A friendly hotel, with a sample of local chocolates in your room on arrival to start the stay off. I was in Melbourne for the Real Madrid v Manchester City game and the trams being outside made it easy to get close to the MCG for free and then walk with the crowds. The restaurant breakfast, full filling and delicious... More

Stayed here 2 nights, great location for trams and Southern Cross station, walking distance to all the sights. Rooms are spacious with all amenities. Staff friendly. Nice lounge with fireplace and library and free coffee, tea and hot chocolate, although we didn't try it.

Living and travelling in South East Asia ups the ante significantly when it comes to standards of service expected from a hotel of a similar rating. Happy to report that Alto lived up to expectations: it was a pleasure to call this place home for three nights, as much for its courteous, unobtrusive service and cosy little apartment as it...

A friend and I stayed here for a long weekend and loved it. Great location - close to southern cross station, where the sky bus arrives to. Nice rooms, very Eco-friendly. The staff on the front desk are friendly and helpful. Thanks for everything!

Stayed there for two nights and enjoyed it. Courteous staff, good facilities and the complementary WiFi, coffees and apples are a bonus. Well located to tram, airport bus service and food outlets. There are also shopping facilities nearby and the free CBD tram is a good thing that make the stay convenient..

Perfect for...location, service, quiet & comfort. My group required a 3 bed apartment ( which was sufficiently large enough for 5 adults) & a 1 bed Spa Room (quite spacious for 2 ). Handy for all attractions with the tram stop right outside & railway/bus station about 100 metres away. We always stay here for our once a year football... More

We stayed here at the beginning of July and enjoyed every minute. We were welcomed at reception and the check in was efficient and friendly. The room was extremely clean and the addition of cooking facilities and crockery etc was very useful. The breakfast was great...having a freshly cooked breakfast was wonderful instead of the usual Bain Marie hot food.... More

Stayed here on the first weekend in July, and could not fault the place. Stayed at the petite queen room, and didn't feel petite at all. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about Melbourne in general. Location about 100m from Southern Cross station which was perfect with lugging our bags from there and there was a neat pub a couple of... More

Stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath apartment for 10 days on holiday as family of four. Plenty of space and with cooking facilities and a good sized fridge. 2 Tvs with pay tv and free wifi which was reasonably speedy and handled all four of us on it at once. The apartment was clean and serviced daily. The Hotel... More
