Everything was really good. Clean, modern, warm (Melbourne was freezing and raining) and the staff were very helpful pleasant and professional. The location is very handy to everything in the city and a easy walk to the convention center. I would definitely stay here again.

Staff were really friendly and helpful, food was great in the hotel, room was clean and comfortable. Nice dining room, all staff helped us with travelling plans and gave us their knowledge on local points of interest. Counter staff also googled tram times etc for us which was very useful

This hotel was a mixed bag for me, but I thought closer to 3 star than 4. I liked the position, close to the skybus stop and free tram right at the front door. Front office staff very efficient and helpful, free tea and coffee, as well as apples to go all day helped to boost things. The room (queen... More

Perfect property for location in Melbourne and has 2 and 3 bedroomed apartments with bathrooms and plenty of room. Kitchenette handy with laundry even though we did not use. loved that bathroom were both levels and outdoor balconys to open windows and doors. Again chosen for location and apartments. Staff were excellent. Would stay again.

I took my daughter to Melbourne for her 21st and ended up staying at the Alto on Bourke. I usually stay at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne but this was full so decided to try the Alto. While it is definitely not the Grand Hyatt it most certainly had it's good points. We got the one bedroom spa room which... More

The Alto was great! I would definitely stay there again. Super close to the Convention Centre (a nice 10 minute walk), really close to the SkyBus to the airport and trams, which I didn't take but they were right there. Also very close to Melbourne Central shopping centre and heaps of shopping on Bourke Street. Best of all though was... More

The good news is the beds are on par with those at the Sofitel and Intercontinental-- super comfy. Also, the front desk service is very friendly and the rooms are very clean. The bad news is the "business centre" contains 2 computers co-located in the dining room which is adjacent to an open kitchen. This means the noise level is... More

Located very coveniently in walking distance to Southern Cross Station (with Direct express bus to airport) and downtown of Melbourne. Hospitality and customer oriented mindset of Gary (the GM) and his team are remarkable. Rooms fully equipped with a small pantry and some extra complimenary services provided (coffee in the Restaurant, Books on loan, fresh apples, etc). Like the Green... More

We arrived at the Alto very early on a wet Monday morning after a very bumpy flight from Dubai and were greeted very warmly. Although our 2 bed apartment wouldn't be ready till later we were welcomed into the lounge & offered coffee & hot chocolate and then offered the relaxation room where the kids could sleep in private till...

We are very pleased to read that you enjoyed the little offerings and facilities. Thank you for helping our environmental objectives with sorting recyclable items from waste. Little actions like this make a big difference. The free tram network is certainly a great service that brings all the corners of the city even closer. Our beds are set with deep... More

Great room, I could regulate the temperature of the room, there was a good choice on the mini bar, options for variations in meal times:i.e. had to catch the train early so I had breakfast in my room and the food was good. I enjoyed the room size, it had space for my family members who came to visit me... More
