I have been staying at the Alto on visits to Melbourne for over 10 years for business and personal trips. Always welcoming. Not 5-star but nor is the price. Always efficient. Always clean. Always ready to assist.

This hotel is very straight forward, meaning it's a warm and neat hotel for the price you pay for near CBD. Best part about this hotel is the location as just outside of the hotel there is a 🚊 station that takes you to the shopping district and for its free. Because Alto is situated between Bourke St and not...

I was here for a week on business. Very friendly & helpful staff, clean rooms, very good CBD location. Only issue is I had a room that overlooked the street, and even with their sound proof glass, I heard the trams on the street from about 4am onwards as I am a light sleeper.

After spending 5 nights on the outskirts of Melbourne on business, it was nice to transfer into town for Sat night. I love this little hotel, what a great find. My husband and I arrived early morning after dropping off a hire car at Southern Cross Station (right around the corner). We planned on dropping our bags off, but were...

Great boutique hotel in great location with tram stop right outside. Included breakfast was ample and a good choice served by jolly staff. Nothing too much trouble for all on reception from arranging a slightly later check out to advising on the best coffee shops. Well done, keep it up!

This is the second time we have stayed here. The location is perfect, just down the street from the terminus of the Skybus. It is in a quiet location, but there are many restaurant/bar options nearby. I really enjoyed the Calamari salad at the Bar Humbug. It is also right by the free Melbourne tourist trolley system. We also enjoyed...

Excellent location, very friendly staff and super-comfortable rooms. This hotel is kept exceptionally clean and the rooms have everything you need. I also love that they are environmentally friendly. There is a restaurant on site which serves a great breakfast. They also have a fantastic selection of Foxtel channels.

We stayed here for one night on our way back from Hamilton Island to the United States and were pretty happy with it. The room was very small but it had everything we needed. The location however couldn't be beat. It was 1/2 a block from the train station and had plenty of "tourist traps" around it. Not only that,...

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.
