My wife and I travel to Melbourne annually and normally stay outside of the CBD but my uncle had been raving about this boutique hotel near Spencer st " Alto" where he regually stays. Perfectly located as we hopped off the Sky Bus at Spencer St and had checked into a roomy I bedroom suite within minutes as it is vitually a 1 minute walk from the station. The receptionist who met us was very welcoming and this continued throughout the vist by every staff member we met, they were all so helpful. On the friday night we even had the pleasure of meeting the charming owner Ricardo. The breakfast was huge and not to mention delicious. I will never stay anywhere other than "Alto." in Melbounre.
