We have just stayed 5 nights during the Comedy Festival. Was a return visit to this hotel. Great location, easy walk from Southern Cross Station for access to and from the airport. Tram stop just outside the door or an easy walk into the CBD. Staff are great and the rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Fantastic breakfast buffet, especially good value if you can have it included in the room deal. We are revisiting Melbourne in a week and will be spending another 2 nights at the Alto.
