    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.

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

    The rate.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    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.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    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.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    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

  • Family with children
    9.6

    very convenient location. We apprecite to have 2 bathrooms in the appartment. Everything was new.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    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.
