Best beds and pillows ever!! Service was friendly and immediate. Hotel was clean and our room was serviced daily. Was central to the city and close to trains and trams. Fridge was well stocked. Awesome shower. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

Location is great - 5 minute walk to the Skybus stop, next to a tram, and walking distance to the big stores on Burke Street. The room was on the small side, but we very much enjoyed our stay -- from breakfast in the morning, to the wide variety of channels on TV, to the cleanliness of the room, laundry onsite, and friendliness of staff. We stayed for 4 nights, and it was a wonderful, comfortable stay.

Walking distance from Southern Cross station, having taken the Skybus from the airport. Perfect location with free tram stop around city, few steps away. Rooms have everything you require including a small kitchenette. Bathroom facilities and large overhead shower with good pressure excellent, after a day exploring before hitting the restaurant scene in the evening. Breakfast's excellent with good variety. All staff very friendly and helpful. a nice touch was the silver fruit bowels filled with ... Read more

Huge thumbs up to the Alto. Not only was it clean, friendly, quiet and affordable, but when I left a rare vinyl in the room they shipped it interstate for a few dollars with super safe packaging. Thank you for that extra attention. We'll be back.

Great location just up the road from the airport bus depot and tram stop. Staff very helpful and left Mum a token hoc of chocolates for her birthday. Staff also assisted us to arrange show tickets and of course directed us to the theatre with ease especially as Mum has mobility issues at times. We had a light dinner one night and it was delish! Cooked on site with attentive staff. Complimentary massage chairs were given and workout and so as the ready nook. We would definitely stay again.

This is such a great place to stay at! The hotel is right in the CBD and the free tram is so close by!!!! That makes exploring the city really easy. There is a room with free massage chairs, which feels great after a day of sightseeing. The rooms are very nice and have Foxtel. And the rooftop honey is delicious!

Walking distance to southern cross station and many places to eat. However, we were on level 2. Could hear people yelling, walking & talking on the streets all night, which kept me awake. Clean, comfortable room. Friendly service Would recommend only if you had to be at the train station early so you can walk.

Lovely little hotel. Perfect location. 5 minute tram to main shopping precint and 5 minute tram ride to Docklands. Very clean and tidy. Crisp white sheets on the wonderful comfy beds. Staff so nice. Two girls who checked us in were sweet and friendly but very efficient. We ordered the full breakfast which was great. My omelette was made to order and cooked beautifully. We did hear voices on the street a couple of times during the night but nothing that disturbed us. Unless you stay in a large s... Read more

We had a long weekend at the Alto with our daughter, her husband and their three young children. We had two adjacent two-bedroom apartments on the fourth floor. The apartments were clean, comfortable and quiet. They worked very well for us - the three children were split between the two apartments (the second bedrooms have two single beds). The lounge/dining areas in each apartment were adequate for us to eat and socialise together. (The deluxe apartment has two bathrooms, one on each floor... Read more

Stayed here on business. Wonderful staff. Great location. Loved the massage chairs. Excellent cable channel selection. Lounge/library/bar/restaurant was very relaxing and welcoming. Best part... they folks had a recycling bin in my room - I was so excited I put a pic on my FB page. Why doesn't every hotel do this????????????

The Alto Hotel in Bourke Street Melbourne is a great Boutique style hotel in the CBD of Melbourne. With very personalised service, beautiful appointed rooms and many other amenities such as free gym usage, Massage chair rooms etc it is a definite "Must return" on next visit to Melbourne. I stay regularly in Melbourne and usually book any hotel on a good rate in Melbourne, as there are so many on offer. This is one of the first times, I have decided that I want to return to the same hotel, as it... Read more

my sister and I went to Melbourne for a huge shopping trip and the Alto hotel on Bourke Street was perfect. We shopped our hearts out and then walked back to our room to offload and start again. The apartment we stayed in was well appointed and had everything you would need for a short stay. It was well priced for a 2 bedroom apartment (with your own bathroom) and big enough to have your own space. Loved it!

Travelled to Melbourne for a business meeting. Arrived evening and was pleasantly greeted by reception. A few minutes later I was in my room. I stayed in a studio queen room and opted to add on the breakfast package ($10). Room was of a good size, modern and spotless. I had a great sleep - bed and pillow very comfortable. The Hotel's mini bar prices are sensible and it is a pity most other Hotels are not the same when it comes to their mini bar charges. For example, a bottle of wine was $21, ... Read more

Perfect location - Skybus and station, with all its shops and facilities, only a couple of minutes and easy walk away, and a tram stop almost out the front of the hotel. The room was very comfortable and well appointed, including a reasonably priced mini bar and free Wi-fi (other hotels please take note). The staff were very helpful and friendly, offering advice on some places to visit not on the usual tourist route. We will definitely be returning.

Comfortable, clean, quiet hotel in a great CBD location, with tram stop very close. Beds were super comfortable and room temperature was perfect. Staff are genuinely welcoming and friendly - providing advice and assistance in a way that was very genuine to help make our stay in the city more enjoyable.

Check in was quick and easy. The room, whilst a bit of a hike from the elevator, was just as depicted online. Double glazed windows meant we slept well although the sofa bed was a little so-so. The tram stop,basically outside the door, made it easy to get around and we enjoyed the walk to Hardware Ln for great food and atmosphere. Reception couldn't do enough to help us store luggage and repack etc on checkout. A great stay in a gorgeous hotel. Loved having a nightcap cosied up on the lounge cha... Read more

I stayed on the 3rd floor and the room was quiet. Whilst it didn't have any view but the hotels proximity to all that you can do in Melbourne overshadows this shortcoming! Definitely blue for money! The staff is courteous and welcoming, the food is very nice! Overall a delightful experience!

Spent 2 days here with my teenage sons. We shared a twin room with a pull out sofa. Beds were ultra comfortable and room was very clean. There is no view but you can open the window for fresh air- a treat in hotels. Micro and mini bar with decent sink. Shower only but good pressure. We were going to Etihad for the footy so needed somewhere close- 5 min walk. The free tram goes past the door on Bourke street so we could get easily to the mall and up to the Princess theatre on Spring Street. Break... Read more

We were on the 4th floor in a two bedroom apartment, it had everything we wanted and needed. We had a carpark not far from the Hotel, organised by Alto. Beds super comfortable, excellent location, everything was easy! There was a bit of construction noise in the early mornings that woke the light sleepers, but nothing too severe.

We travel to Melbourne every year and wouldn't stay anywhere else - We LOVE the Alto and have been returning year after year! The standard of the beds, the pillows and the breakfast almost rivals the excellent service from the staff, the environmental awards and central location to Melbourne's CBD. We love that the tram stop is right at the Alto's front door and we can travel in the city circle for free! Could not rate this hotel highly enough!

I really liked the Alto Hotel. Very handy to everything you need within a close distance. The staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough to help us out. The room and bathroom were both a good size, clean and pretty new. I really liked the recycling bins and the green initiatives. The eating area downstairs isn't huge, but I had enough space there to do some computer work after I had checked out. The free coffee from the machine is good.

Travelled to Melbourne for a sporting weekend and got great results on the field both days and equally so off the field by staying at The Alto. Great location with proximity to dining, entertainment and sporting options as well as to local, regional and interstate transport I was a bit reluctant to provide a review because once the word gets out, I might find it hard to get a room at The Alto next time!! The friendly and helpful Alto team made our weekend... thank you and see you again soon
