I would happily stay here again. It was really easy to get to from Tullamarine Airport: I just caught the skybus from the airport to the city, then walked a very short distance to the hotel (Im not good on distances, but it only took 5 minutes). The staff were all lovely, and very helpful, and the room was nicely... More

I really liked staying at the Alto - although regret not asking to change rooms. The room was lovely, spotlessly clean, tiny but functional bathroom, great location, reaonable price - but the tiny window in the room overlooked a brick wall just a few metres away and had no natural light. It was a struggle to wake up in the... More

The Alto is our hotel of choice whenever we come to Melbourne. The best location in the CBD, only a hop skip and jump away from everything. Love the environmental edge that the Alto has over the others. The most friendly staff from front counter, to housekeeping, to the restaurant. Always sleep well in the comfy beds. Cannot ask for...

This hotel is in a great location. Convenient to CBD and the Southern Cross Station making walking to city attractions or catching the free tram easy. The parking was not convenient and very limited. From the reviews, we expected nicer furnishings in our queen suite but the carpet was reminiscent of indoor/outdoor material and the stairs going up to the... More

This was our second stay at the Alto Hotel -just one night on our way home after 5 weeks in Australia and in-between 4 flights home. Just perfect for us; a short walk from the bus station, very quiet (no view from windows but last time we had quite a bird show), comfy and a kitchen for our strange eating... More

An overnight for business which made a comfortable night essential - and I was not disappointed. A comfortable room and a pleasant and relaxed breakfast. I couldn't have asked for more. I will definitely use Alto on Bourke again.
