This is the last time I worry about sound from neighbour room. I stay in room 420 which is also a connecting room. For 2 nights, I can hear my neighbour's snoring at night? I thought I was dreaming. When I know the wall, I realise that it is not a concreate wall. It is some kind of hollow gibson...

It is decorated with class and sophistication. The room was large with a view out to a tranquil garden setting. There was a...

After two prior visits to the Como I found the same elegant and a little quirky hotel with great room with stylish décor and a huge black marble bath. The breakfast was modest but well-chosen and one could order more interesting stuff a la carte. But what ended up a major disappointment was lack of staff interest in assistance when...

I highly recommend this venue for its location, its services, then pool and gym and its quiet stately ambience. It is in proximity to great restaurants, shops and tram & train services. This is my 3rd stay and I will return

We styed there for three nights last week and had the most amazing room.

Visited the Como for one night to attend a business function. The hotel has a great location on Chapel street; perfect for an afternoon stroll and window shop. The foyer of the hotel is very bright with a nature/garden/spring feel to it. Feels really fresh when you walk in and the rooms are similar. The rooms are spacious, well laid...

We enjoyed a very nice stay at the Como. Our room was massive with a beautiful view of a terrace garden. The highlight of the room however was the deep bathtub/spa bath. The Como room staff have also mastered little touches for example the plug chain spelt out "Como" and there was little rubber ducky as well. The hotel is...

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.
