“Go the Wallabies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

8 couples met a the Alto Hotel from all over Australia. We loved it's close proximity to the stadium. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was great, with fresh food and friendly staff. A nice touch having apples in bowls at the front stairs. The rooms were comfortable and quite. The Alto is within walking distance of hundreds of restaurants. We loved and Melbourne and the Alto we will be back. Most impressive was the Wallaby Win!!

Room Tip: Book early to avoid disappointment.

We just had two separate stays and I must say it was perfect for us. My wife, I and our son were over to support the Lions and having a serviced self-contained apartment was ideal. The position on the edge of the CBD could not have been better - opposite Southern Cross station and on the tram lines. The rooms were small but were well maintained and it was well stocked. Certainly if we returned we would certainly stay again. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Thanks.

This is my second stay at the Alto. It is very clean and comfortable, friendly staff and a very cosy and warm reading room. The "Green" philosophy is great also. It's well located and walking distance to Bourke Street Mall for those who like to shop!!!

This is the second time I have stayed at the Alto. I really like the 'Green' philosophy of this hotel but enjoy the cleanliness of the rooms and the very friendly and helpful staff more. Both trips have been for work but I will be back for fun sometime soon. Very comfy bed as well.

This is the place to stay if you want maximum convenience, superb comfort and awesome service at a great price. Modern decor, quiet and very comfortable, the Alto has it all. I've never slept in a more comfortable hotel bed and even though Melbourne was extremely cold while I was there, the bed and suite were toasty. Very eco friendly and the rooftop honey at breakfast time was delicious. Will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: My room at the back of the hotel was very quiet. Also, when booking opt for the extra $16 and get br...

We chose alto due to its location and it looked really nice to spend our first wedding anniversary. The hotel is walking distance from the sky bus and train station. Room was ready early which was a bonus. Rooms were spacious and clean. Bed was super comfortable. We loved the massage chairs. We had breakfast included in our room price. There were plenty of choices we settled for French toast and pancakes. The Sunday morning they were very busy and we thought they had forgotten about our orders. If in Melbourne again and wanted to stay a little bit more luxurious we would stay here again.

We stayed at the weekend in a 2br apartment, it was very comfortable, nice & quiet. The staff were very helpful & pleasant. The beds very extremely comfortable. Furnishings were very nice. All in all a great little hotel. Tram outside, taxis and Skybus around the corner
