Had a weekend in Melbourne. The Alto hotel on Bourke was great, so close to southern cross station, a tram stop out the front into Bourke St mall , Docklands etc. Staff were great & would certainly stay there again. If you want a great city location at a reasonable price, modern, clean & in the city this is a... More

Such a lovely hotel! Walking distance to southern cross station so you can get the Skybus from the airport and walk 5 mins down the road. The rooms are always clean and the staff friendly. Food is so good and it has a really lovely personalised vibe. Not a big impersonal hotel chain. Coffee machine where you can get a... More

If you're looking for a modern hotel with an opulent atrium, Alto isn't for you. If you want sweeping city views to the distant Grampians, Alto isn't for you. But if you're looking for a hidden gem with nice modern furnishings in a quaint, older style building, with friendly, courteous staff and great food, then stay at Alto! I give... More

Caught the Skybus from the airport to Southern Cross, then across the road, so very convenient. Pro's- - Location as above - Staff were very good, professional and helpful - Room- we... More

Always a great pleasure staying at the Alto where the staff are warm and friendly. We have stayed here many times and never been disappointed, we now walk through the door and feel right at home but ready to explore Melbourne as it's in just the best location.

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...

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.
