The Alto on Bourke is a great boutique hotel close to transport, both the tram & train station are only minutes away. I was upgraded to a one bedroom with spa bath for a one night stay. This was a great luxury & I took full advantage of it. Even though the room was on the main road I had... More

The hotel is in a great location with both trains & trams right out the front in both Bourke & Spencer Sts. The staff are very friendly & helpful which made our stay great. We had a studio room which was great in size & we were able to do our own breakfast. A lot of shopping around without catching... More

Great little hotel perfect for short stays. The rooms though small are comfortable and clean. There is complimentary coffee and fruit in the lounge area and the breakfast was great. Good value for both the room and the food, would definitely stay here again.

It is near to tram stops and Southern Cross Station, and great for day trips to suburbia. It gives free coffee and tea every morning in the restaurant, and a nice warm reading area by a fire place. Really wonderful if you come in from the cold. Room is a little tight especially when they tried to fit a kitchen... More

We had a two bedroom apartment which accommodated our family of five perfectly. And at a great price for Melbourne CBD. Very clean, with all the ammenities needed for our night stay. Staff were super friendly and very helpful. Five minute walk to Southern Cross Station, bars and restaurants. Great for couples and families.

Stylish decor with very comfortable beds, complimentary tea and coffee in the lounge/bar, nice restaurant, five minute walk to the Skybus station in Spencer Street. This hotel has a lot of eco friendly credentials which were much appreciated. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent free Wifi access.

I have stayed here many times for work and it is great. I love the box of chocolates on each stay which welcome me back with the hand written notes. Everything is always in great nick. The staff are welcoming. There is wifi throughout the hotel at no extra charge, which is essential. All up its lovely. The breakfast is... More

If you require an international type hotel which you can use for business rendezvous, the Alto is not for you. If you are on the other hand a first time tourist requiring a comfortable base from which to explore the City, the hotel is an excellent choice. Situated one hundred metres from the Airport Bus terminus, the transit is easy... More

The team at the Alto are really friendly, even the chef stops for a chat. It's a bit unsettling at first, but once you get the down to earth quirky vibe it really makes your stay. There are lots of other small touches that add to your experience, opening windows, honey at breakfast that the bees on the roof make,... More
