We stayed here over Christmas and it was a lovely place in a fabulous location, with easy walking distance to the city centre. The apartments were very clean and modern (only slightly being let down by the temperamental/slow wifi). What made this place so brilliant was how the AMAZING staff went above and beyond their jobs. They were very helpful... More

On first read this could have been any of our wonderful team. However this was our super special Assistant Manager - Jenny. She does lots of great work every day and certainly went a step further this day. Glad to hear that her effort was appreciated. Gary Stickland General Manager - Alto Hotel More

We recently stayed at the Alto. Very warm and cosy atmosphere and great service from the staff. Nothing was a problem. We will stay here again. The rooms are fantastic with attention rot detail. Theres a laundry and a relaxation room to chill out and also a library.

We had a wonderful weekend which was affordable. I love that the Alto is eco friendly but also provides excellent facilities. The food was lovely, the room luxurious. We will definitely be back and recommend to our friends.

This modest hotel represents excellent value, it was so Central I was worried about noise but double glazed windows meant we had a good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was good except for the coffee machine .They should get a real espresso machine,that is our only complaint everything else was excellent.

This is an excellent restful place to escape to after a hard day in Melbourne. Rooms are fantastic, Staff are wonderful and the food in the restaurant is great. Their green ethics are also a huge plus

My husband and I were in Melbourne for our honeymoon late April-May 2015, a total of 6 nights. We were extremely pleased for staying at Alto. First, the room. We stayed at the Queen Studio room and it comes with a mini kitchen with a sink, microwave and some cutleries. There are some cookies and coffee/tea replenished daily. Bed is... More

Stumbled across this place when looking for a mid-price CBD room. Impressed with the service, ambience and value. Full Foxtel and Wireless inclusive and a clean, modern and comfortable room. Good breakfast choices. Only downside is the cramped public and dining space. Definitely worth a return visit!

My parents stayed here, not I but I chose this hotel for them. I chose this mainly for the great reviews this hotel have and the price which included breakfast. My parents loved the location and said everything else was pretty good, no complaints except there wasn't any views which was expected as I requested to be at the back.

Spent a few days in Melbourne April 2015.. Alto is well located near sky bus terminal and tram stops. Cosy small hotel atmosphere, helpful staff and great breakfast !. It's in an old converted building ( former railway Union offuce) so has some real character. Cosy lounge and relaxation room . I would stay here again.

Green hotel just a block from the Melbourne airport bus stop at Southern Cross station. View of a brick wall but bed was comfy, room was clean and great value. Laundry facility was very handy, and coffee machine in lounge was a welcome bonus.
