I stayed at Como recently and then also a few years back. I loved it then, and love it still - its got a nice chic vibe, great location in the cosmo South Yarra. Found all the staff to be very friendly at every interaction . Housekeeping was great! The hotel was in the process of a refurb, the refurbed rooms are gorgeous and love the new colours and styling - very contemporary. The bathroom - you can tell it's an older hotel by the oversized bathroom and black marble all of which ties in nicely still. The huge spa bath was wonderfully deep and relaxing but the shower head was a water-saving one (yeah, I know thats a good thing!) but not my liking. Bathroom amenities - Morrissey branded, very nice! They also have a pillow menu, which I took advantage of as I dislike feather/down pillows, they quickly provided a foam one.
Rooftop pool was easy to get to - walk along a corridor and then up a set of stairs to the gym & pool area - its not nearly as difficult as some make it sound! Breakfast experience was good as was room service - but I preferred to explore and experience the local scene, after all, you're in Melbourne.
Definitely will keep staying. My final advice - if you plan on heading into the city/CBD everyday you might find this a bit out of the way - its a simple 20-30 min tram ride. But aside from that, nothing to fault with the location and area.
