My wife and I stayed at the Alto for just one night on a quick trip over to Melbourne. The hotel is very well located at the western side of downtown - within 10 minutes walking to just about anything. Rooms are small but include all your basic amenities (no tub) including free internet! Not something I would usually get excited about except that it was $25/day in just about every other hotel we stayed at in Australia. Best part about the Alto though was incredibly nice people at the check in desk. We arrived at about 10am and while they didn't have any rooms available for early check in they made sure we got into the first one available (~11am) and had no problem giving us a later check out. They were also incredibly helpful in giving us a map for downtown, talking through all kinds of things to do and making great recommendations based on our interests. Great value for couples wanting to explore downtown.
