“Excellent place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Great location, particularly if you want to be out of the city but close to the city, i.e. for the Australian Open. Front desk staff and concierge (Grant) were first class. A great addition to the MGallery collection.

This place was beautiful...the decor tasteful and elegant. The room spacious and quiet, and perfect location for eating and shopping. Breakfast was yum and there was champage and choc in room on arrival. Could not speak highly enough of this hotel and will be back for sure.

Overall a very good hotel in a fantastic location with shops and restaurants along Chapel St. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
The one bed room suite has very defined separate bed/ living/ study areas and felt very spacious.

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.

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!
