Convenient hotel opposite Southern Cross Station
The hotel is just opposite Southern Cross Station where the airport bus stops. However, travellers need to be careful when pulling their lugguage across the road as there are tram tracks which makes it hard to move the lugguage. The hotel is clean and well-maintained. Staff is helpful and friendly. There is a tram stop just outside the hotel to get travellers into the city. Recommended to stay there.

Cute hotel - but don't have a room on the alley!
location, character and feel
The hotel is a cute character hotel located at the Spencer St end of Bourke St, so great for holiday makers - a little too far away from the city for business purposes. I stayed in a suite, which was very small compared to other hotels. The facilities were OK, but a bit tired. The main drawback for me was the alley outside the hotel, which had what appeared to be a non stop stream of delivery trucks, rubbish trucks backing up the alley (its too small not to) with an incessant "beep beep beep". This seemed to go on from about 2am onwards both nights. Even with double glazing - sleep was over. If you are staying at the Alto for work or are a light sleeper, try to get higher than the first floor..
