This would be the 6th time that I've stayed at the Alto & I keep coming back. The hotel is clean & comfortable & the location couldn't be better. A short walk from Skybus, the tram stop is just down the road & it's a couple of minutes walk to Southern Cross station. I stayed with my teenage daughter & the main reason we go to Melbourne is for the football. The Alto is a great location to stay for this reason as it's not only a short walk to Etihad Stadium, the closeness of Southern Cross train station makes it handy for the Yarra sporting precinct (including the MCG) as well. On this stay we had breakfast one morning, but didn't make use of the free coffee or massage room (which is usually on the agenda for us). I'll be staying there again in June & very much looking forward to it.
