“Great for business and pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Stayed for one night whilst in Melbourne for special event. The hotel is in the heart of South Yarra, right on the corner of Chapel & Toorak Rd, so it's an amazing location. We were upgraded to a suite on arrival, which was a nice surprise and the room was clean and comfortable. Morrisey amenities and complimentary bottles of water were a nice touch.
If I had to pick one thing that was out of place, it would just be that in the morning they had no Express Chekout box at reception. But that was about it.
Good hotel for business or pleasure travellers.

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

I stayed at the Como for 11 nights in November, it was my second stay and this time is was for the Melbourne Cup Carnival. I do like the hotel; the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely, a really good size, modern, clean and with everything you could want, even a very big bath, which I believe is unusual for Australia.
I've never been into the restaurant, but the bar is nice and I've had the bar food which is good. The bar is strange though, it's either rammed full or empty and it's not open all the time. However the choice of bars and restaurants close by is endless so that's not a problem.
Chapel Street is a good location, the shopping is amazing, it's close to the tram and if you like walking or running there's a great track along the river into the CBD. Also the taxi drivers all seem to know where Chapel St is, which is a massive bonus as many Melbourne taxi drivers don't seem to know the city at all!! If there are any negatives, they would be: the public areas are a bit impersonal and sterile, the rooms were often only cleaned late in the day and during Melbourne Cup Carnival the hotel should warn overseas guests that taxis are almost impossible to get and reccommend advance bookings!

we stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, we scored a sweet deal including breakfast. Breakfast is amazing...and the concierge is really helpful as well.

but we could see the light through the door crack at night so the room wasnt that dark to sleep in, but all in all, i'd recommend to stay in Como...oh and watch for celebrities as well. I was having breakfast one morning, i must be in my own little world, didnt even realise Guy Sebastian was sitting at the next table...lol

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We stayed at The Como in an open plan king suite for our honeymoon in November 2012. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a massive bathroom - perfect for getting ready for the spring races. We found while the staff were pleasant enough the hotel lacked that something special that usually comes with being 5 star. Location is brilliant, but on future trips I will be trying elsewhere in South Yarra.
