short walk from Spencer Street - FREE WIFIPosted Dec 14, 2014
Pros: Free wifi, friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms
Location: Get off Skybus at Spencer Street and walk 150 m round the corner to Bourke and you're there. Heaps of cafés and shops near by.
Really friendly staff, nice rooms thoughtfully furnished, feathertop beds, double glazing. Excellent breakfast if you want. I REALLY appreciated the free wifi facility, that tells me this hotel is customer-friendly.

Good apartment hotel close to city centrePosted Nov 16, 2014
Pros: Good quality accomodation Proximity to city centre
Cons: Living area small Separate washer and dryer
Location: Highly recommend walking tours for city orientation and overview
Good apartment hotel that worked well for us as a family of four with grown up children. Only criticism is living area is a little small for four adults. Also washer/dryer took hours! Close to city and main tourist attractions.

PerfectPosted Nov 10, 2014
Our room was the one bedroom spa and exactly what we needed for an overnight stay. Only negative was the noisy nightclub across the road.

A Really Green Hotel - Yeah!Posted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: The fact that it really made an effort to be green and has been highly rated for this - plenty of towel rails; staff that listened to/saw that the req

Location: The Alto on Bourke is well located to all sightseeing venues in Melbourne with the tram stop just out the front, and then Southern Cross Station shoul
We stayed here to spend some time catching up on shows, galleries and restaurants in Melbourne. The staff were really pleasant and the rooms super comfortable - not too big not too small (standard accommodation).

Nice hotel close to Southern Cross StationPosted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Good location, wifi, clean and comfortable room.
Cons: Soundproofing the walls
Location: Southern Cross station a few mins walk, Coles supermarket 5 min walk, centre of CBD 10 min walk.
Stayed for 2 nights in Alto on Bourke. It was very convenient when I arrived by SkyBus into Southern Cross Station in Melbourne. Only a few mins walk. Staff were very friendly when I arrived before check-in time, and allowed me to leave my luggage there while I went to see the city. When I returned to check in to my room, my luggage had already been put in my room (a very nice touch!). The room was not large, but plenty of space just for myself. There was a big TV in the room, with lots of satellite channels available. Free wifi was available, kettle, tea and coffee as well. The bathroom was small, just a shower cubicle, toilet and a sink, but all clean and fine for me for a couple of nights. I found the room a bit noisy, walls were quite thin, and the window backed onto an office room so I kept the blinds shut all the time. I didn't try the breakfast, but it seemed reasonably priced and a lot of different choices of buffets (continental, cooked, etc). The centre of the city is about a 10 min walk straight down Bourke St, and a bit hilly, but there is also a tram stop just outside the hotel that will take you down the road in a couple of mins. There is the largest Cole's supermarket in the city just a 5 min walk from the hotel, so good for grocery shopping. All in all, very convenient for city, train station and shopping. Checking out, the staff were a bit abrupt, but not the worst I've experienced.

Superb location. In the heart of Melbourne cityPosted Sep 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
I recommend this hotel and I will definitely stay here the next time I am in Melbourne. The airport sky bus is just 200 mts away from the hotel. Hotel staff is very courteous and the room was very clean.
