Convenient location within proximity to what Melbourne has to offer. Great customer service with very helpful and friendly staff that seems to go out of their way. Good clean room and very comfortable bed.

Rooms are really compact but have everything you will need and are clean, really liked the fact you can open the window for some fresh air! Staff are friendly and welcoming. Enjoyed breakfast in the little restaurant down stairs great way to start the day, also ordered room... More

Travelled to Melbourne for a sporting weekend and got great results on the field both days and equally so off the field by staying at The Alto. Great location with proximity to dining, entertainment and sporting options as well as to local, regional and interstate transport I was a bit reluctant to provide a review because once the word gets...

I really liked the Alto Hotel. Very handy to everything you need within a close distance. The staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough to help us out. The room and bathroom were both a good size, clean and pretty new. I really liked the recycling bins and the green initiatives. The eating area downstairs isn't huge, but I... More

We travel to Melbourne every year and wouldn't stay anywhere else - We LOVE the Alto and have been returning year after year! The standard of the beds, the pillows and the breakfast almost rivals the excellent service from the staff, the environmental awards and central location to Melbourne's CBD. We love that the tram stop is right at the... More

We were on the 4th floor in a two bedroom apartment, it had everything we wanted and needed. We had a carpark not far from the Hotel, organised by Alto. Beds super comfortable, excellent location, everything was easy! There was a bit of construction noise in the early mornings that woke the light sleepers, but nothing too severe.

Spent 2 days here with my teenage sons. We shared a twin room with a pull out sofa. Beds were ultra comfortable and room was very clean. There is no view but you can open the window for fresh air- a treat in hotels. Micro and mini bar with decent sink. Shower only but good pressure. We were going to... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
