Stayed at the Alto for just one night last week. Service was friendly and helpful. We arrived early, so understandably the room was not available, but by the time we returned to the hotel in the afternoon, our bags were in the room. The room was on the small side, plain but super clean, with a very comfortable king bed... More

My stay at the Alto was fabulous. I booked a room with a kitchen for my 8 day stay and it was the perfect solution for an occasional breakfast, lunch, dinner. As promised, the location was ideal. I was able to get almost everywhere I wanted to go by walking or the free tram. But the absolutely best part of... More

This is a very comfortable mid range hotel: We had a two bedroom split level apt. The accessibility from the southern cross station is a 5mins walk which means you can get the sky bus from the airport and walk to the hotel without a problematic trip to the city. The staff are friendly, the hotel food is good and... More

Fantastic stay at the Alto, we picked it for its proximity to the Melbourne convention and exhibition centre, you can walk there in around 15 minutes, the same time to get to the Crown Entertainment Complex. Spencer St station is 2 minutes away, there are bars in the street and a tram stop outside the hotel. This boutique hotel has... More

The Alto Hotel is a modern, clean hotel and only has 4 floors (so sometimes it's quicker to walk up or down the stairs as there is one elevator). It's close to Southern Cross Station and tram stops. Staff are friendly and internet connection is great.

The Alto is the perfect place in Melbourne in every way! A boutique hotel with very, very friendly, happy and accommodating staff. The room was excellent with the most comfortable beds imaginable. (You can even purchase the beds that are used by the hotel!) Breakfast was delightful with a good range of continental offerings and individually prepared and cooked hot... More

The Alto has long been my hotel of choice so I was delighted when I found that there were two pokestops close enough to be accessed within the restaurant and bar area. I could even access one of the stops from my room. Having free Wi-Fi and access to two pokestops all night long meant that I didn't even use... More

A hotel i have stayed at previously and it continues to be a hotel of choice in Melbourne. Close to transport, pleasant and friendly staff, a nice little restaurant and nice clean rooms, comfy beds and even some chocolate treats on arrival.

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.
