We have stayed at the Alto on two occasions and it is now our hotel of choice when we stay in Melbourne. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and well appointed and the beds are the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on.

2nd time I've stayed here, last time was 2 years ago. This is a fine hotel, centrally located, good for getting the bus to and from the airport and a tram stop at the front door. My one tip is don't book the petit queen room if you're a couple, it's a bit on the small side, I made this...

The staff at this hotel were all excellent. The room was very clean, breakfasts were all great, and the location was perfect. Should I ever return to Melbourne I would definitely stay again. The day we had to leave, the dinning staff got our breakfast order ready slightly ahead of "opening time" so we would not miss our bus to...

Parking is interesting, but do able and as with everything at the Alto, small but perfectly formed. Our unit had a small sitting area, kitchen, two bathrooms...

We enjoyed our stay and would use the hotel again. The front room we were given was too noisy for us but the staff happily moved us to a quieter one. We walked everywhere we wanted to go in Melbourne such is the hotels central location.

It was a great stay and sincerely loved every minute of being in this hotel. I was not looking for "home away from home" especially on vacation, but it was absolutely wonderful. I stayed at Grand Hyatt & Mariott for few days before this hotel, but I believe this was worth it, and possibly next time I come, I would...

Staying at the Alto is like coming home. The staff are always friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. The rooms are lovely and clean, with a kitchenette, extremely comfortable beds and a lovely feel to them. It's in a great location with a tram stop just metres away from the front door and Southern Cross Station a short walk away. Breakfast...

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.
