Reviewed 6 May 2014

Stayed there for a couple of nights, in the beginning of a three week holiday around Victoria. I booked the room because of the good reviews on trip advisor and wasn't disappointed. The hotels very close to the Southern cross train station, so it is very easy to get there from Melbourne airport. The room was not very big, but well equipped and quite functional with a small kitchenette. Unfortunately there was some building works going on near by, so it was a bit noisy in the morning. We didn't try the breakfast as we didn't get up early enough. There are quite a few decent restaurants and bars around and is only 10min walk from the shopping district. The receptionists were all very friendly and had very good suggestions about places to eat in town. We tried to go back three weeks later, but due to some sport event couldn't find a room.

At only around 100 metres from the southern cross station/skybus drop off, it is very convienent. Clean, quiet and modern interior. Cozy rooms with tea/coffee and sky tv (also free wireless throughout). I did not eat there as there as many good places around, but the breakfast offerings seemed a really good deal. If your a single or acouple who want to get out and play and have a great place that is clean, quiet and welcoming to return to sleep, this is your place. If your a family who wants to spend more time in the hotel room, there might be better options

Great location
Staff very welcoming and helpful
The breakfasts are great with a large menu.
The studio is not huge but it's luxury in an adequate space
Oh and the relaxation chairs are just what the doctor ordered at the end of a long days sightseeing
We would stay there again and recommend it.

Everything I needed for a 2 day business trip: close to the business district, short walk from the railway station and airport shuttle bus stop, comfortable quiet room and friendly, fast, efficient service. Good wifi with no complex setup required or limit on devices connected.

The green credentials are credible and in evidence.

Room for improvement: free coffee in lounge was pretty horrid - a Nespresso or similar capsule machine would do better.

But there's a Hudsons on the corner if you want a better cheap coffee. Across the road is the new School Of Life cafe with great ambience and all the Alain de Botton books you can eat ;-)

Also across the road is The Hub, a great coworking space.

We enjoyed our stay at the Alto. It is very close to Southern Cross Station so getting to and from Skybus was a breeze. It's centrally located so our walk to Etihad Stadium for the footy was only a couple of minutes and at the same time the walk to the shops down on Bourke Street wasn't that long. Also the kitchenette was very handy in making some quick breakfast and dinner meals.

If we ever came to Melbourne again I would definitely stay here.

We stayed in one bedroom unit for a couple of nights on our last stop over on way home from Asia.
This was our 7th property we stayed in last 3 weeks. Great city centre location and professional service from all the staff. The 1BR unit is ideal for family and quite spacious for an inner city hotel with full kitchen and dishwasher.
We would definitely choose this hotel again when we next visit Melbourne.

I just arrived back from 4 nights at the Alto on Bourke and there was nothing I could fault about my stay. There were 4 of us ladies celebrating a 50th birthday and we all enjoyed our stay. The Alto was close to everything. Spencer Street Station was 200m or so down the road and trams just outside the door. The kitchenette was fully equipped with everything we needed and the staff at the Hotel were excellent and full of knowledge. All 4 of us decided we would definitely stay there again next time we come to Melbourne.

Room Tip: We had room 404 and the only noise we heard were a few tram bells which was a nice reminder that we...
