Challenging to find an hotel, which does not look like a single room and where you do not feel at home. Alto is different as most of the rooms have a small kitchen stand with a real fridge(bye bye small mini bar full of overpriced items) and you can even book a place that is more like an apartment. We tried the Queen studio, one of the first prices. The hotel is very clean and you get everything that you need: a large TV with Foxtel, fast Wifi, iron in the room, quietness… There is a relaxation room with massage chair and a breakfast(not tested). The room service stops after 11pm but you are in the center so walk to Chinatown if you are very hungry. The service is excellent from the night duty to the maids. Location wise, it is difficult to beat at these prices. You are walking distance from the station where buses depart to the airport every 10 minutes, 5 tram stops from the Collins/Swanston crossing(get your myki) but you can walk as well, especially after a long night when taxis are too busy. The only thing that was a bit disappointed is the size of the room in itself. Not enough to stay inside for a long time. Compared to the Citadines, it is smaller. Having check the prices, Alto always beat the others accommodation although sometimes not significantly. Reflecting on this, you are not staying in the CBD to remain in your room.
