5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

What a surprise! I thought I found a great deal when booking this hotel....but didn't realise how great! Staff were really friendly, the room was really spacious and breakfast just topped it off! Close to Chapel street shops - ideal location. Next time we visit - i'm not looking anywhere else!

Best hotel I have ever stayed at. Everything from the beautiful foyer to the boutique feel with arty detail and a large room with beautiful finishings throughout including bathroom with big bath. Will come back again for a third time.

If you have loads of luggage then maybe you should forget the Como as you may need to haul them up and down a set of stairs. While the porter service is excellent and you can have your bags taken to your room for you, we decided to negotiate the journey from front desk to our room ourselves. That was a mistake. But this is the only negative comment I can make about a fairly luxurious hotel that has top notch front desk staff, a free coffee while you wait for your check in to be completed, excellent car parking service and roomy, roomy rooms. Did I say that the rooms were really large? The bathroom was also spacious but if you are not used to throwing your leg over the tub to gain access to your shower, then that could also be a downer. Like most modern hotels in this star category, there is an emphasis on providing something a little different and in this one it was the bath accouterments which were over package to my liking, nil accounting for the waste generated. The king bed was extremely comfortable and I had the best nights sleep thanks to the pillow selection. Usually we stay at the Sofitel but the Como's location in South Yarra, among the high end shops and a wide selection of restaurants, was a nice change. Would return again.

Room Tip: Great night's sleep in a quiet room with a super comfy bed.

Great location for shopping and a very short train ride into the city. Great service, lovely rooms. So close to all the shops and restaurants, especially in Toorak Road. The entrance is a little inconspicuous from the outside, but lovely decor inside. If you find the price of breakfast a little steep, there are plenty of places locally to get out to and dine at.

Room Tip: Even the base room is lovely. Good for a quick stopover.
