We stayed four nights at the Alto and found it to be a great place for a visit. We had an apartment -style room so we could cook our own food etc if we wanted - and that is a good thing in a city like Melbourne with so many markets and so much delicious food! Our room was on... More

A last minute (TripAdvisor recommended) booking in the heart of Melbourne. Warm greeting and simple check-in. Good recommendations for dinner close-by, and then up to a cosy, clean and very functional room. Off to the free gym for a run and then back for a fantastic hit shower. Quiet room and amazing Queen bed! Large screen TV and free espresso!!... More

Based on previous reviews we booked a one bedroom spa apartment (as opposed to a one bedroom apartment) as we have a six year old son and every bit of room comes in handy. We were very... More

Great location close to Southern Cross for airport buses and trains. Spotless rooms with wonderful amenities. Beds and pillows were so comfortable. We love the 'green' aspect of this hotel and plan to stay there whenever we are in Melbourne.

We chose this hotel for its location and family orientation. The rooms were compact but served our needs well. We made use of the breakfast offerings which were above average. Staff always accomodating and helpful - visible presence of the GM which is why they work well. Wifi available and eve a massage chair room for weary travellers. Close to... More
