Location is very convenient. Just a few steps away from the Southern Cross train station and airport Skybus, there is also a tram station just outside the hotel. We had a room on the second floor. We had studio queen and the room was nicely sized and well furnished. It also had a small kitchenette and a fridge. A view...

If ever we had a home away from home in Melbourne, Alto is it. Everything is so comfortable. Location, amenities, value and great staff who actually remember you. And of course we love the apples. Thank You.

Well appointed, spacious room. Everything very clean and all that we needed for a few nights. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Good location in CBD as well as quite close to waterfront. Our king bed was a little tired and warn in. Try to get a room on upper floors. We were on the second floor and there was...

We couldn't fault our stay at the Alto Hotel on Bourke in any way (February 2017). It started with some super friendly customer service at front reception (it ended the same way also) and this set the tone for our stay. Everything was easy. The location of the Alto is basically perfect. It's close to Southern Cross Train Station on...

Great location right in town. We took the one bedroom apartment but were upgraded to the two bedroom which was more than adequate space wise and had great a/c. Had everything we needed, clean and tidy, and service was good (although we arrived at 11pm at night). Great little common room/coffee room/library too. Good value for money. Only small downsides...

The Alto is conveniently located right next to a tram stop and within an easy walk to Southern Cross Station. Bourke Street busy and interestig. While the rooms are nicely average, the superb customer interface is terrific and the breakfasts are well worth adding to your reservations. Recommend!

Within walking distance to Southern Cross Station and Etihad stadium -for the soccer! The tram stop is at the corner (and its free if you are roaming in the city area). We took it up to Mrs Parma's for the best chicken parm dinner you will ever have. The rooms are very quiet so you can't hear the city noises....

Our family of five stayed here in December. The location is good - tram outside and groceries nearby. The actual apartment offered all the amenities we needed but the space really is tight. Having just come from another serviced apartment in Sydney j found us eating out more in comparison because the table only sat 3 people at a time...

A perfectly adequate if modest hotel very close Skybus service to airport and on free trams into city (as well as walking distance to a number of attractions at this end of town). Room was clean, small and well insulated from street noise. Staff friendly and helpful. But on balance decided to spend a little more to get a nicer...

I enjoyed the night at the hotel as it was clean quiet spacious enough. The price was reasonable too so I couldn't have asked for more just for one night in the middle of the city. I recommend this hotel for sure.

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.
