The Alto has a real green initiative, which was great to see. It's about time there was a hotel that gave you a recycle bin as well as a normal rubbish bin. The soap/shampoo/conditioner dispensers in the shower are a great idea (instead of the little bottles), except ours wasn't working properly. The room was small but very nice and clean, with a great little work area and good WiFi service. The bathroom is small, and the shower doors were more like a Dr Who type contraption which made the shower small even for me. Bed was very comfortable with great pillows - one of the best night's sleep I've had when not at home. The public areas are small but very nice (let's say cosy) - especially the library area, which I wish I could have spent more time in. The staff were friendly during our stay, although our card didn't work coming into the building late one night, which was a bit of a hassle but fortunately there was someone there to let us in. We were staying during the film festival, so the location wasn't as close to the festival areas and shopping centres as we would have liked, as we were travelling by foot (you might prefer it if you're using public transport). A nice little hotel at a good price, with green initiatives.
