I stayed here for 3 nights. The location was excellent - just a short walk from Southern Cross station where the airport shuttle dropped me, and within walking distance from everything in central Melbourne.
The hotel was fantastic. They also claim a lot of green credentials, and there is one thing I have to highlight. Every single hotel (including travelodges) now have a policy that they only change towels if the guest requests so (i.e. dropping them in the bathtub or floor). But I have never seen this adhered to anywhere, meaning those hotels claim to have green policies in place but staff choose to ignore them. THis is frustrating to somebody who actually would love to contribute and reduce the footprint of their hotel stay. Hotel Alto was the first place where this towel policy was actually working! well done.
