“Great Hotel and Location”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Stayed at the Alto for 4 nights. Great location. Short walk to Hardware lane, right near train station, sky bus shuttle. Short walk to convention centre and south bank.

Hotel itself was nicely decorated. Nice large room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Gave us a later checkout than organized as we weren't feeling well.

Breakfast was lovely, although the restaurant is small so you have to make sure you get a table.

Room Tip: Friends on the first floor complained of kitchen and street noise. I was on the 3rd and didn't h...

Stayed overnight on business room simple with an unintrusive emphasis on environment thru recycling and condiments dispensing.
A good range for breakfast and close to all the restaurants

Highly recommended. Everything was almost perfect. Really convenient location, right across from the Southern cross Station. The room was serviced everyday to a good standard. The room was a little small, as was the desk when it came to getting work done! But the bed was very comfortable! The internet was a little slow. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. When I asked the waitress at breakfast for directions she was kind enough to write down complete directions with tram numbers, times, and streets. Which made my getting around sooo much easier! As was reception great with suggestions for me.

Enjoyable stay at the Alto. Pleasant, helpful staff, excellent breakfast, very clean apartment. Rooms a little small but good value.
Great location for bus transportation to airport and enjoyable walk to city centre. Tram station very close. Would be happy to return.

Room Tip: Front rooms facing onto Bourke street a little noisy due to tram station.

Alto is a small eco-focused hotel centrally located in the Melbourne CBD, within easy walking distance of many city attractions, i.e. Queen Victoria market, Bourke Street Mall, Etihad Stadium, Southbank, etc., etc.
Hotel staff was friendly and attentive.
Guest rooms are small, but comfortable and immaculate. Free wi-fi internet access is included in a reasonable room price ($168 CDN).
I would happily stay at Alto again on next visit to Melbourne.

I needed a modestly priced hotel close to Southern Cross station and the Alto was a perfect choice. It's a 5 minute walk from the station and the airport bus terminus. My studio room was compact but totally functional, with a good bed, a great bathroom and all the amenities required. The staff were excellent - friendly, polite and really helpful. Breakfast was included in my package and the choice was amazing. My only regret was that the restaurant was not open on Sunday night.

Room Tip: Back rooms are quieter
