I love the Alto. This is the 3rd time that I've stayed there & every time it's been an enjoyable experiece. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean & tidy. The windows can be opened (even if all you can see is a brick wall, at least you can get fresh air). At night, the outside noise was at a minimum. I love the idea of the hotel being environmental eg dispensers instead of plastic bottles & soap that gets thrown away after one night. The hotel is within walking distance to SkyBus, Etihad Stadium, Southern Cross station & Coles, which makes it a perfect place to stay. Last time I was in Melbourne, I had to stay somewhere else. I won't make that mistake again!

Room Tip: Book early.

The location of the hotel is its big asset: it is in the center, very close to most sights and literally next to the skybus (a direct bus shuttle service to and from the airport). Eco-consciousness is certainly the theme. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but relatively small. This is clearly not haute gamme but for the price paid, the value is good.

Great location for football, trains and trams. 200metres from Eithad Stadium. A great pub and restaurant across the road. Rooms were neat and tidy and spacious. The hotel is Eco friendly which is a nice touch. Front end staff were helpful and even helped me out with a new phone charger. Close toa 24 hour deli and banks etc. Short walk into the main shopping area on Bourke St. Well priced and would stay again.

Instead of a long weekend in Melbourne (as 2010), we opted for a week this time, staying again at the Alto Hotel on Bourke. We had a two bed standard apartment which for two adults and two teenage boys is just right - with a comfortable large bed in the main bedroom and two singles in the second bedroom. The room facilities are very good with dishwasher, cook top, oven and microwave. Shower and toilet facilities are good, but there is no bath. Shampoo, body wash etc are provided in pump action dispensers in both shower and by the basin. Hotel has limited parking although is a short walk from Spencer Street Station (Skybus terminal) if arriving by air at Melbourne Airport). There is an on site restaurant for breakfast and dinner although it may not be 7 days a week for both. Secure luggage storage on day of departure is also a added benefit. The hotel is relatively small and staff are friendly and helpful. The only minor issue we had was our online booking (direct with the hotel) showed a 5% discount for the week, which was not applied on checkout until we mentioned it. Location is very handy for trams and a ten minute walk up to the Bourke Street Mall. Free access to a local gym is also included as is free WiFi. Check with hotel for disabled access via side entrance.

Room Tip: Consider booking online with hotel direct
