The Alto Hotel was booked for it's location and convenience. It was within walking distance to all my needs during my 48 hours business blitz of the Melbourne CBD. I book a petite queen room which was clean, everything worked and ample for me. The hotel was a cool and funky ambience and the staff very friendly and helpful particularly...

Was here for 7 nights on a business trip. most of my time was in the CBD so this location was excellent. Room was clean, neat and quiet. Bed was comfortable but soft. Restaurant was good but a bit expensive but might be just Melbourne. Good front desk. Would recommended.

A great location, quite close to Spencer Street Station and very quiet compared to other hotels right in the central CBD. Room was comfortably sized for a twin share situation. Staff were very efficient and friendly. Breakfast menu was good.

I'm impressed with the staff. They were helpful. I came in at 6 am & need to go tour the whole day. They store my luggage & when i came in at 8.30 pm, the luggage is already in the room. They also allows late check out at 11 am next day which was nice as I was so exhausted....

Perfect location for my business trip in the heat of Melbourne CBD. Rooms were excellent, lots of free Foxtel channels that other hotels don't provide. Clean and modern. Will definitely stay here again.

In Melbourne for three nights for work, I took a Queen studio overlooking Langs Lane. Size is fine for a short work trip or for one person, if staying longer with two people I would ask for an apartment. I am currently sitting in the room now and there are roadworks directly outside the hotel but I cannot hear them...

I travel regularly to Melbourne for both business and pleasure, so it was a little sad when my normal hotel was too full to get a reasonably priced room. I booked this through QANTAS and received a smallish Queen room which was perfect for my one night stay by myself. I asked for a quite room and got it -...

Great location and friendly staff make this an excellent choice for our needs. Despite construction work literally right outside the building we slept well thanks to sound-proofing on the windows. The breakfast deal in our accommodation package was good value, and any-time access to good tea and coffee in the foyer was an added bonus. The hotel's commitment to sustainable...

My wife and I stayed at Alto for 4 nights and were impressed with all aspects of the hotel. The room was very clean and in great condition and the staff were extremely helpful in dealing with any issues and providing information on trips and Melboune as a whole. The location was great - right outside was a tram stop...

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.
