                          Thank you kindly for our stay at the Alto. We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment which was so comfortable. So close to everything and staff were fantastic. Together with our two daughters, we had a wonderful stay and will recommend Alto to Melbourne travellers.

                          Location was excellent. We caught a sky bus from the aiport to Spencer Street Station and then it was a short walk to the hotel.

                          location is good, especially near the airport bus station

                          I liked the overall cleanliness of my room, the excellent lighting and the effective black-out blinds.

                          Excellent facilities, location and particularly helpful and friendly staff.

                          Occasionally noisy being in room at rear and directly above service entrance and lane.

                          The room was clean and very comfortable, the staff were friendly and efficient and the location was great. Would happily stay there again.

                          The breakfast wasn't wonderful. Would not eat there again.

                          Convenient location. Straightforward check in. Lovely yet simpe facilities. Just what i needed without too much fuss. Particularly like the self serve coffee and book exchange in the lounge. Must try the massage chairs next time!

                          The staff and welcome we received was fabulous - the front desk representative seemed genuinely happy to see us when we arrived.

                          The hotel is very clean and the room, although small, is very nice. The location is excellent!

                          The rate.

                          Travelling as a family with 2 teens, it was affordable and in a convinient location within minutes of transport, eateries and shopping. The free internet and ipod dock was a winner with our teens. Coin operated laundry made packing a breeze and the free flow of hot drinks machine all day was fantastic on cold days. Where else can you get all these in Melbourne at this fabulous price! Will be back and reccommned this to anyone. The all white decor may seem stark to some but it actually accenuates the cleanliness of the hotel.

                          Centrally positioned,five minutes walk from the airport shuttle bus terminal.Adjacent to the bus and tram system for getting about the city but only about a half hour walk to Flinders street.

                          The location was fantastic and the staff were fantastic

                          the bed was a little on the soft side especially at the edges so you often felt you were going to fall out

                          The cleanliness,the friendly staff and the food,it was value for money.A very pleasant stay.

                          The bedlamps were not bright enough to read by.
