Alto is the place to stay if you are looking for a quiet, clean and homely boutique hotel with professional and friendly staff right in the center of Melbourne. What impressed us most was the hotel's exemplary dedication to sustainability and environmental best practice. This starts with small details such as yummy apples and fair trade, organic tea and coffee as much as you like, or the recycling bins and organic soap and shampoo in those stylish rooms. But Alto does much more than that: Its entire electricity comes from renewable energy (wind turbines) and all its carbon emissions are kept at a very low level compared to other hotels - and whatever there's left is offset. Sparky, a compact little electric car, is available for guests to navigate the city's suburbs should the need arise (buses, trains and trams are literally at Alto's doorstep).
All this and the fact that the hotel is independently eco-certified, monitored and tested on a regular basis makes Alto clearly our hotel of choice in Melbourne - and a shining example for other hotels to follow.
PS: If you're lucky you might even get treated to some of their honey from the hotel's very own rooftop bees!
