I stayed here for 3 nights in September for business. Check in was great. I asked about a room with a harbour view and my request was accommodated. Rooms with 2 doubles are a decent size. The single double bed rooms are on the small side. The hotel is pretty high tech with lights, heat, blackout blinds etc controlled by a panel on the wall. The bathroom is well equipped. The staff were great. Really friendly and efficient. So much to see and do and great local restaurants all close by. It would have been nice to have a fridge in the room - perhaps in the clothes closet? Also, would recommend some improvement on the continental breakfast. Perhaps a toaster could be added. The coffee was good. I would stay again.

Room tip: Ask for a harbour view on a higher floor with 2 double beds.

The Alt is a very new hotel in an amazing downtown harbour front location. Easy walking distance to Signal Hill, restaurants and George St. The rooms are compact but efficient and very well designed. Beds are super comfortable. The hotel was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The underground parking was a bonus. Breakfast was very basic but sufficient. We had a great stay a very good rate.

Room tip: Spend the extra for the harbour view.

I was in St.John's to do some research at the Archives and also a little break. The location on Water St. with great harbour views was excellent. The hotel is only 4 floors and provides an atmosphere of basic modern, somewhat an Ikea vibe. Very modern room controls on electronic panel, including control of blinds. Very speedy wifi. Room on small side but no worries because your view expands your space. Very clean. Any staff I interacted with were friendly, without being over the top and very helpful. For example, I had booked a cab to the airport for 8:30am but was checked out and in the lobby early. One of the front desk staff noticed and came over and asked me if I wanted her to call and get the taxi to come earlier as I was ready! The biggest downside was no cafe or restaurant in the hotel. Coming back from a long day of walking up those St.John hills and in front of a microfilm machine at the archives meant it would have been nice to just eat in! Overall, this was a good place to stay and would do so again.

Room tip: Get the harbour side.

We stayed 6 nights at the Alt because of it’s location on the harbour and because of a special promotion by the hotel. (Three nights for the price of two.)We had a harbour view/king bed/5th floor room and although very compact in size the overall cleverness of the design made up for that. Breakfast and parking included. Pastries in morning come from Rocket Bakery and are very good. Very relaxing holiday because we were able to come back to our room every night after a day of exploring the area in our rental car. Staff very nice.Bed comfortable, Clean. Highly recommend!
