Alto Hotel on Bourke, Melbourne
Wonderful people, great little hotel
Great small hotel in super location in Melbourne. The people in this hotel were all wonderful, vey helpful and friendly. This is the perfect location and perfect hotel for us. Not expensive, all the amenities including a coin operated laundry room for guests. Breakfast was excellent and only $16 AU for continental or $19 AU for full breakfast. This hotel is one of our favorites in recent years. Compared to a five star in Sydney, where the price was 2 1/2 times the Alto and breakfast was $ 48 AU, we will take the Alto every time.

Convenient place to stay for the Aussie Open.
I was here to attend the Aussie Open. They were extremely efficient checking me in and getting my bags stowed so I could race off to the Tennis. The breakfasts here were VERY good. The breakfast area was a little small, so one morning there were several people banished back to their rooms to await a phone call saying there was space for them, not that they waited long. The only negative I have here is that everything felt a little dated. That being said, if the price is the same, I'll absolutely be back for the Open next time.

Great hotel right in the center of town.
Amazingly nice and helpful staff at every turn. From letting us check in early after a flight from the US, to the charming and professional brekky staff. Even the manager, Gary, paid attention to our comfort and needs.
