Always wanted to try this place and was not disappointed. We stayed in a studio room and it was excellent. A granite bench with large round sink, microwave etc was so convenient. The window opened which is always a nice touch. The bed was first class with all the usual bits and pieces next to the bed. I found the... More

Stayed here for two nights. Rooms are small and dark but this didn't worry us. Free wifi. Great location. Jump on a tram to Bourke Street Mall....3 stops. 2 minute walk to the footy, trains. Very helpful staff. Great choice of breakfast packages. Highly recommend this hotel!

Thank you comment on our friendly staff, we strive to make everyone feel welcome and relaxed,. We thrive on feedback that indicates we have achieved this.

This is a very basic but clean and well located hotel. Staff is friendly and things like a guest laundry can be a big help on a business trip. Doesn't have the charm of a hotel in a cooler neighborhood but for location and price it's a good deal.

This hotel is very clean, comfortable and in a great position in Melbourne's CBD. Easy safe walking distance to everything in central Melbourne. Very close to Southern Cross Station and the Skybus to Tullamarine airport. It was also very affordable. We would happily stay here again when next we stay in Melbourne.

If you want a clean ,convenient, friendly hotel with helpful staff then this is the place for you. Room was small but adequate and as quiet as you get in a major city. Certainly no noise that would keep you from sleeping. The room had a handy area for storing 2 suitcases. Beds very comfortable and warm. Bathroom very clean... More

Alto on Bourke is a fairly small hotel directly opposite the train line and on the bus routes as well. The rooms are lovely and the staff are tremendous, but the small touches are what make this different - free wifi, apples, tea and a coffee machine for guests to use at any time, a restaurant that seats only 25...

Our location near Southern Cross and the airport express shuttle is a benefit to many of our guests. Having your office next door is a bonus. On check of room account there is a $24 charge for the Big Breakfast & Continental Buffet ordered. Our waiters note on the service docket that the charge is to be added to the... More
