This is a boutique style hotel excellently situated to explore Melbourne. There is a very frequent sky's service from the airport that drops you almost on the hotel doorstep. The building is historic - once used by the Railways Union and many of the features have been retained, The reception is small but the welcome was warm and efficient. My... More

My sister and I spent a couple of days in Melbourne. We wanted a convenient hotel, close to the station and city heart. The Alto on Bourke is just a short walk from Southern Cross Station and the tram stop to the city is just a couple of minute's walk from the front door. This hotel is a gem. The... More

This was out first time staying here but won't be the last. We are a family of 5 with 2 teenagers and we stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which comes with a sofa bed in the lounge. We found there was plenty of room for us and with 2 bathrooms getting organised in the mornings was made that bit... More

This is the second time I have stayed here in the past year. I even booked my elderly parents in last Xmas time. This Hotel bends over backwards to help and look after their guests. From the minute we stepped through the door upon arrival we were welcomed back, even down to the chocolates left in the rooms. We had... More

Hotel is within walking distance from Southern Cross Station, which makes it really convenient to get to & from airport. There is also a tram station right outside which is within the free tram zone. The room is bigger than we expected and came with all the amenities we require. The staff were also very friendly, offering the use of... More

No complaints about this hotel, which is the only hotel I can say that about for my stay in Australia. Comfy bed, Foxtel TV, nice shower, good internet (such a rarity!), location and everything else. It is a small room, and I knew that going in. Solo traveler, so I appreciated the Fox TV system and good free wifi connection.... More

Ideally located to access from Southern Cross Station & then around all areas of Melbourne. The room we had to book (due to limited availability) was a bit on the small side but it was very clean & the bathroom very modern. The staff were all very friendly & extremely helpful. Unfortunately the restaurant was a bit of a let... More

We stayed at Alto on Bourke for two nights as a family. We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment which consisted of three bedrooms and three bathrooms (2 ensuite) a full kitchen, small lounge room area and Juliette style balcony. Although the apartment was not spacious it had everything we required. There was a fairly step spiral stair case to... More

The Alto is a really great hotel for spending a weekend in Melbourne. On this visit we tried one of the two level - two bedroom suites and it was absolutely as promised. The main bedroom was well equipped with queen sized bed, tv, wardrobe and opening doors onto a small but functional julienne balcony. The second bedroom was equipped... More
