Footy Weekend

Stayed here for 3 nights and was a great location for catching trams as the stop is right outside the hotel. The bed in our room was super comfy and you even had the option to purchase the type of bedding they use if you found it good. Complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate available in the dining room at any time. All in all was a great location, great rooms with a kitchen, great staff and great value for money.

Friendly and respectful

I loved staying here and felt right at home. Enjoyed the genuine friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff; loved the comfie bed and decor; loved the rooftop honey; and the building is cute. Really great to see Traditional Owners acknowledged in the information booklet and I was wonderfully surprised and impressed to see how green you are - with dual bins and recycling options. I really appreciated how much you consider you your role in the community and the only thing that would top this is if you had an Indigenous employment strategy you could share. :) :) :)

Thanks Alto !

Our first time at the Alto and we were not disappointed. We stayed in room 202 "Petite Queen". The room was smallish but had EVERYTHING you could want. Reminded us of a hotel we stayed at in Paris. The room was spotless and very comfortable and easily big enough for the two of us. We had just closed the door on arrival and a knock came, lovely staff member presented us with a bottle of bubbles and some chocolates for our anniversary, made our day. I loved the apples at the entrance of the dining room, which we enjoyed each day. Breakfast was great, they even delivered to our room one morning. All day coffee machine came in useful after a full day out shopping. Very easy walk from Skybus Station and a nice walk...10 minutes or so into the bustle of the shops. Definatley recommend this Hotel and we will be staying again next time. Thanks Alto, we had a great stay with you guys, compliments all round.

Off to the cricket

Perfect for the overnight stay. Very clean & neat room, slept like a baby and handy to Spencer St station for the trip to the airport for an early flight home. Pity I had to go back to work!

Altissimo!

Only spent one night here in a standard 2-bed apartment but great value for two friends travelling together. Would be even better value for parents and a couple of kids wanting a longer stay and to do some self-catering. Nice linen, very clean, quiet and so convenient to Southern Cross Station.

Clean and quiet

We took the Skybus from the airport to the Southern Cross Station and only had half a block to walk to the hotel. There was a tram stop close by but we decided to walk everywhere, which was fairly easy. It took us about 10-15 mins to walk to the city centre and Federation Square from the hotel. The only negative of the location was that we couldn't find any nice cafe/bars or restaurants that were open in the evening, so had to go into the city for dinner. Otherwise, the hotel was comfortable, the staff were pleasant, we had no problems and it was very clean and quiet.

Very good gotel, bit overpriced

Overall experience was very good, short of excellent only due to the room itself being of less than the quality I expected for the price-range. I know there is a component of the cost going toward the four green star rating, and I accept that. Other facilities such as the relaxation room and the small library with book exchange made up somewhat for the pokey view-less room, and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The overall feel of the hotel was good. We had complimentary breakfast which was very good, but no way I'd pay the asking price if it were not complementary, especially given nearby options available... Location was good, but for the money, I think next time I stay in the CBD I'll look for something closer to the middle of town.
