I last stayed here about 5 years ago and to be honest was not impressed at all. The rooms were dated, expensive and the hotel was to my mind still living off past glory's. Well that all changed recently when I decided to give it another go for a night. On checking in I was pleasantly surprised to receive an... More

Really enjoyed our one night stay at the Como in South Yarra following two nights at the Grand Hotel in Melbourne. Décor was definitely a bit more modern in South Yarra and we had a nice view over parkland from our bedroom. Staff were very friendly and professional.

Normally stay at the Pullman, but circumstances had me booked in here. I would put the rooms on a par with the Pullman. Nice - no complaints. Like Pullman on the Park (my usual haunt) , Restaurant here is also an issue. Small, was full when I was there. More of a Tapas bar setup than a restaurant , somewhere... More

Travelled here recently for some board meetings and decided to bring my very young family with me. Nothing was a trouble. Two cots, a high chair, our own space at breakfast, constant help from the staff, offers of 'baby chinos' and a great kids menu for in-room dining. We loved the upgrade to a one bedroom suite and the pool... More

The Como Hotel was a comfortable stay. I had an issue with a tailor making some alterations - the Hotel helped. I asked for a special meal - the hotel obliged. I asked for extra bedding - no problem. The Como delivered on its service promise. I will return.

My very first impression of the hotel was the stylish lobby and amazing front desk staff. So welcoming and accommodating. Awesome location in South Yarra, with everything a traveller could want at the door. Great restaurants, theatre and shopping right at the door. Business travellers won't need to walk more than 100 metres to get a good choice for a... More

Staying in Chapel Street

Neighborhood Profile
Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with specialty stores selling just about everything. The famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor cater to high-end designer labels and exclusive boutiques. The community flocks to Prahran’s organic markets as a Saturday ritual, while art and film students leaf through vinyl LPs on Greville Street. The gay community also has a strong presence here. Prahran’s heritage buildings like the Reads Emporium and Prahan arcade offer a grand sense of scale and history. No matter your interest, come feel the pulse of one of Melbourne’s most loved precincts.
