This hotel is well located next to train and tram station. Close to the CBD with lots of great restaurant nearby. Service was good, and stuff was friendly. Fast internet access. Alto on bourke is a green hotel. Spacious room and well equipped.

Wonderful boutique hotel in super location in downtown Melbourne. We had a rail trip the next day and this positioned us perfectly for a timely departure. Very nice room. Close to a number of good restaurants.

The location makes this a winner few minutes from Skybus terminal and the CBD. On arrival we were hoping to leave luggage in storage but was pleasantly surprised that at 9.30am we were able to have our room. We requested a quiet room away from the lift that's exactly what we got. The room & bathrooms are small but adequate.... More

ONLY hotel to consider in Melbourne CBD. Ambience of a small European family hotel where a guest is a guest. Walk few paces from Southern Cross Rail station and Bus Terminal. Trams stop frequently almost outside the door. Green principles. Free excellent WiFi. 24/7 real person reception. Impeccably clean. You can open the windows or slide them shut to complete... More

The best part about Alto is its location. Smack center of the CBD, you can walk almost anywhere you would want to go provided it's not raining (Melbourne's weather!). The room was quite small, but we didn't need any more space. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds we've ever slept on. My husband and I were... More

We after all were only in our room to sleep and shower. The staff were more than helpful and the hotel was quiet and clean. Rooms were made up beautifully... More

Alto Hotel conveniently located near Southern Cross Station for access to the SkyBus to reach the airport. Trams conveniently nearby. Definitely a green hotel. Liked the free WiFi. Beds were the most comfortable on our trip in Australia.

I recommend this hotel and I will definitely stay here the next time I am in Melbourne. The airport sky bus is just 200 mts away from the hotel. Hotel staff is very courteous and the room was very clean.

Alto Hotel is a very short walk from Southern Cross train station, and has a tram stop almost outside the door -- that said, you (almost) won't hear a thing inside with the window closed! The windows are double-glazed yet can be opened for fresh air. Reasonably sized, tidy rooms, with unlimited free reliable wi-fi. Free unlimited use of the... More

Lovely hotel in the heart of melbourne! Rooms are really well furnished, with lots of detail put into the design and quality furnishings. Close to everything so easy to explore the city. Definitely worth a stay here on your next visit to melbourne!
