We booked on the net, and were pleasantly surprised to arrive very late (midnight horror) to a smile with genuine warmth from the desk clerk. The room was clean, ready and no fuss, as was checking in. Wonderful at the end of a long flight from Perth. Over a four night stay we enjoyed consistently good service, from desk staff... More

I didnt know what to expect with this one. I booked last minute for a business trip and was on a budget, I'd never heard of the place. The reviews looked good though so I gave it a whirl. When I arrived the carpet put me off...looked like the place needed updating immediately. I was pleasantly suprised by the spacious... More

I stayed here with my mother while visiting Melbourne for her 80th birthday. I chose the 1 bedroom Spa Apartment, this was nice and spacious and included a kitchenette. We found the hotel very well located, the Sky Bus stops nearby, and the tram is directly outside. It was a small, comfortable, welcoming hotel. We ate in the small restaurant... More

Pros: the feather-bed!, great location, friendly staff, clean room and property Cons: n/a Tips: Taxi rides to and from the airport to this hotel are expensive. From the airport I paid 65AUS and to the airport in the early morning my fare was 85AUS! So I would recommend Ubering whenever you can! I really enjoyed my stay at this cute... More

Stayed overnight before our flight next day, and it was as good as ever. Love the Alto. The staff are so helpful and nothing is a problem to them. Lovely breakfast as well. We will be back. Can recommend it.

We enjoyed our stay with the Alto Hotel recently. The Studio apartment was well appointed, very clean, friendly staff, with a free wi-fi (which worked well) and full Foxtel Service (instead of just selected channels such as the Sports package). Breakfast was very nice and there are a selection of places to eat in the area. The Alto's location, a... More

The Alto was a great choice for a spring break in Melbourne. We chose the hotel based on my spouse having stayed there once before during a business trip, and the fact that it is so well located for an independent traveller. The location is excellent for airport travel -the airport buses arrive at Southern Cross station just a block... More

The building has a nice architecture. The staff were lovely. Especially bar/kitchen staff. The rooms were pleasant, splash of welcome colour, great facilities (iron etc), warm and the bed really really comfy. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a nice apartment at the Alto for recent stay in Melbourne. Location 2 mins walk from Southern Cross station and tram right outside. Excellent staff, couldn't do enough for us. Nice touches were apples and coffee machine in the lobby. Relaxation room. Beautiful comfy bed with lovely crisp sheets. all in all, will definitely stay there again.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
