“Excellent choice in Melbourne”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

First and foremost this hotel is perfectly situated - close to two major train stations and in the heart of the city. It is a small hotel but one that gives excellent service. We had an apartment/hotel room - i.e. separate bedroom; living cum dining room cum kitchen. The kitchen was completely furnished with oven, microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans, plates, glassware and cutlery. Staff at reception were friendly and efficient. It made the stay in Melbourne very pleasant.

Stayed in a twin room over weekend - room well appointed and very clean. Staff very friendly - we didnt have a chance to try the restaurant on this trip, but enjoyed our stay and would stay again in preference to larger hotels

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! So close to everything, can walk to Bourke Street Mall and the CBD. Beds are so comfy. If back in Melbourne will be staying here again. Breakfast menu and buffet good way to start the day. Other reviews stated that the rooms are small and noisey. Yes they are small but what do you want when you are out all day. Perfect space. We had a one bed apartment and adjourning queen studio - perfect. Noise is nothing more than what you would get at home. Double glazing on the windows shuts out the outside noise.

Had a wonderful stay at Alto on Bourke. Great location and the 3 and 2 bedroom apartments we stayed in were very clean with very nice contemporary furnishings, good beds and with 10 ladies travelling together a bathroom per bedroom was perfect! Handy location with many good places to eat nearby and trams right outside. There was one thing to consider, many of our party were kept awake 2 nights by nearby building site noise, it went on all night and was very loud. I would return to Alto for another visit but would check on the building site situation.

- Very clean & tidy room (small but comfy), comfortable bed, friendly reception staff
- Excellent location in the CBD: tram stop just outside, Southern Cross train station a short walk away (taxi rank just outside the station)
- Complimentary gym facilities nearby & an inhouse relaxation room (I didn't get to use them though)
- iHome device available in room (useful for playing iPod music)
- Free wifi provided but connection was rather spotty at times
- Traffic outside at night can be quite noisy so remember to close the windows

Chose the Alto due to location as I had a conference near by on Bourke street. Great location, easy access, clean & tidy room! Staff extremely helpful & accommodating. Lovely breakfast! Will definitely be staying there again!

Friendly, helpful staff that went out of their way to help with my enquiries. Also an excellent location for doing business or for sightseeing if on a break. The Hotel is a beautiful old restored building complete with creaky floorboards in the hallways. I travel a lot and it was so nice to be able to full asleep in the most comfortable bed I’ve had in a month since being home and even then it was a step up from mine!
