Everything about this hotel was good: comfort, services, cleanliness, friendliness and thoughtfulness of the staffs. However, we were disappointed that the kitchen wasn't open for dinner on Easter weekend when most of the restaurants were closed. Also the location isn't quite perfect as you definitely need to travel by public transport to get around the city. It is also close... More

Great location for a night in the City. Nothing was below expectation as regards the amenities and service. Just a bit noisy on a Saturday night. Mostly outside noises from people passing outside and guests moving back to their rooms. Free wifi and full range of foxtel channels were a nice free extra.

Amazing and attentive service, super clean rooms and fantastic location. We stayed for four days and enjoyed every minute. Its a really short walk to the train station which also housed the airport bus. The rooms were decorated nicely and the addition of "full access" foxtel was a nice touch. I especially liked the chillout room with the massage chairs.

I had a very good experience with this hotel. An early morning business meeting meant I couldn't fly from Sydney in the morning and needed to stay one night. I booked the Alto because it looked to be the closest hotel to the airport bus stop at Southern Cross/Spencer St Station. The short walk from the Airport Bus to the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Alto in a two bedroom apartment. The staff are excellent, the rooms clean, the beds extremely comfortable, centrally located and very quiet. The addition of a kitchen is great. There was a small problem with my kitchen having had a leak, that I didn't even notice, but the staff sent up a bottle of... More

There's not a fault I can find with this superb boutique hotel located just a short walk from Southern Cross Station and the Skytrain terminal. We were upgraded to a suite and the service, appointments, cleanliness and level of comfort could not have been better - so many little special touches to make us feel welcome and at home. The...

We were very impressed with this hotel during our two day stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It had a small kitchen area, which gave us an extra sink that we found useful. Breakfast was of a high standard and reasonably priced. Guests choose some items from a buffet, but hot food is chosen from a menu and... More

We have an emphasis on comfort and cleanliness. I am glad that this has been evident. While hot buffets are great for quick self service we prefer to take a little extra time and cook each dish to order so it's just right. When in an unfamiliar city it does pay to be cautious, however the district around the hotel... More

We had a great 6 nights in Melbourne except for the poor performance the Dockers put up on the friday night.The room was nice and clean and serviced well. i like the idea of not changing the towels everyday and saving energy and water as towels can last a few days without changing them. Wonderfully quiet in the room with... More

Stayed here for two nights. Excellent location. About 200 m from Southern Cross Station. Sky Bus comes and goes from here every 20 min to Airport. $18 per adult passenger. Takes 20-30 min depending upon the traffic. Lot of restaurants in the vicinity. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Can not think of any negative points.
