Long weekend stay at the Alto with our trip to Melbourne. First impressions are good and the location is excellent from arrival into town on the sky bus from the airport (terminal is <100m from the hotel). Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating when a small issue was noted with the availability of the room (they thought it was made up but it wasn't quite finished). No problems, sorted easily.
Room (studio queen) is typical size but bed is excellent and very comfortable. Aircon worked a treat which was very helpful after high 30 degree celsius days. Good sleeps all nights we were there and virtually no detectable noise from street or near-by train and tram stations/stops.
Breakfast is excellent with full buffet and made to order menu items available. Well worth the decision to book a B&B rate. The coffee was also very good.
Hotel is walkable distance to most things in Melbourne but for those less keen on the pedal mode of transport, there is a tram stop 20m out the front door that has links to the centre of the CBD, casino, Flinders station and all the other tram lines.
Well worth staying at the Alto on Bourke.
