The Como Hotel is located in a delightful urban area called South Yarra. There are many shops and restaurants nearby. The rooms are quite large and recently renovated. The gym has a swimming pool and is well equipped. It is a short taxi ride to the center of Melbourne.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your positive feedback in relation to your stay with us at Como.

We appreciate your comments and agree that South Yarra is a wonderful location in particular for shopping! As you mention it is also only a short taxi ride into the CBD area from the hotel.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

We stayed here on the last few nights of our visit to Melbourne and the GOR in September 2011. The room was well appointed, clean and modern. This hotel in right at the northern end of the Chapel Street precinct and only a short tram ride from the Melbourne CBD.

Would highly recommend this place to stay at. Staff were very helpful.

Room Tip: Go the King Room

We stayed at The Como last night, it was great. The room was spacious and comfortable, the staff were very helpful. The hotel was lovely, we had a full breakfast with many options. There was nothing to complain about. The Como is in a fantastic part of Melbourne with great shops and restaurants all around. I'd love to go back and visit.

We recently stayed for 5 nights at The Como and will certainly stay there again. The location is just perfect. On previous visits we had stayed in the CBD but after enjoying the location on Chapel Street, I doubt that we will bother with the CBD again. It was just fantastic to step out of the hotel and be right on Chapel Street, almost on the corner of Toorak Road. The trams head along both (major) roads, so from The Como everything is very accessible. But you don't need to jump on a tram (though I love to catch them!). Chapel Street is a great shopping/dining street, and the Praharan Markets are a short walk away. The Como has been refurbished and the foyer now serves as a funky bar. Our room was HUGE! OK so the bathroom shows its age (we did love the spa bath in the 80's!) but the size of the room more than made up for that. I must mention the reception staff...they were wonderful, most attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The only shortcoming of The Como was the $35 per day parking charge...a bit rich we thought for leaving the car in the driveway of the hotel!

Room Tip: Our room looked over a pretty garden which was lovely.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Como Melbourne and it certainly lived up to the 5 star rating. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the location, being in South Yarra was close enough to the city for convenience but far enough to feel more of a holiday location.

Close shops, restaurants and bars made for easy dining and shopping.

The room was spacious and comfy!!
