Great location - it is the wrong end of Bourke Street but with the free tram zone and a tram stop just across the road access to all of the CBD couldnt be easier. The staff at this are exceptional. - I had frequent dealings with them and they were friendly and helpful without esception.

Everything clicks at this hotel. Great location right at Southern Cross Station allows an easy Skybus ride from the airport and then just cross the road to the Alto. Check in was seamless with Aimee providing great service and advice. All of the staff we encountered were very professional. Outstanding room (admittedly an upgrade due non-availability of our requested room)... More

this was a last-minute booking but we were very happy with the hotel. It was very conveniently located. Although the room is a little small and didn't have much of a window, it was very comfortable and clean. The bed was especially comfortable. The service given by the staff itself was excellent – very helpful and friendly and made things... More

We took Alto because it simply was the hotel nearest to the town terminal for the Skybus. And of course because it had a very good rating. After that we realised how lucky we had been. New, very clean and simple with a truly friendly personnel and a lovely breakfast. We even ate there one evening. Very silent rooms even... More

The vibe is great, the staff were all wonderful. In particular the beds are absolutely glorious and the breakfast is just great (far better than the usual 4/5 star international chain buffet). Yes the rooms are not large, but ours was more than adequate and the en suite was larger than average in my experience. The 24 hr help yourself... More

The hotel is a short less than five minutes walk from the southern cross station where the skybus terminates from the airport. The tram stop to the main shopping district is just outside the hotel and within the free team zone. Facility wise, the hotel is adequate and clean. Overall value for money.

Overnight train trips aren't the most comfortable. Arriving at Southern Cross at 8 am, I was very thankful for both the location of the hotel, and for the early check-in arranged by the concierge when I explained my situation. Rooms were comfy, the free wifi actually worked, and staff were friendly and helpful. The only minor downside I can nitpick... More

Great location with 2 minute walk to Southern Cross Station & 5 minute walk to Etihad Stadium. A few minutes on the FREE tram & you are at the Bourke Street Mall (which opens onto Myer,David Jones,Melbourne Emporium, Melbourne Central etc. When you have family members that LOVE shopping this is the perfect place to stay.

My daughter and I stayed here last night.The staff were pleasant and friendly.The room was nice and cosy and had everything we needed.Having the small kitchenette was great as we made our own brekkie.The beds were comfortable.The neighbours nearby were a little vocal,not other guests but from outside.I would definately come back as its only five minutes from Etihad stadium..
