My partner and I had a delightful stay here. Just one night with a noon checkout. Arrived 11am and got straight into our room. Just refurbished tastefully and very roomy and comfortable. Service was excellent.

We were very impressed with the Como Hotel and we would definitely stay there again. The only thing missing was a restaurant in the evening. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We liked the big spaces.

In suite 527. King size bed good; slept well. Bathroom/shower good, but smooth marble floor - slippery when wet. View out window was cooling ducts, building sites & look down into mall :) Limited TV selection ... only analog channels & restricted pay TV selection. In-room dining reasonable quality; breakfast good. Lobby so boutiquey, that it has steps everywhere ... why is there not a single level for entry/reception/lifts? Overall, enjoyed a single night; private and relaxing; good base to wander down Chapel St shops

Worst hotel ever! Staff were unhelpful & moody. Bar staff didn't know how to make a simple cocktail. Room was old, outdated, shower door hanging off hinges, room service was non existant. Would never stay here again & would never recommend this hotel to anybody!

After several visits I have to say this hotel is not the Melbourne icon it was in the 90's.
Even arriving in a limo did not get us help in with the cases.There are stairs and a walk to the lifts which are by the "back door" to the Como arcade.
The lobby is smart and we read newspapers and used WiFi there, as it is free there and does not reach rooms. Reception staff work hard and seem to get all the phone calls too. Management were invisible and the bar very down market.
The rooms are all sorts of shapes and quiet, with large bathrooms and baths and good toiletries.
The TV's are too high up the wall when sitting below.
The tea/coffee kit is stored in the wardrobe without an electric socket.Out in the room there are NO high level electric sockets so tea making happens on the floor!!
House keeping is most unreliable.Little cleaning is done until the day you leave.
One day the cleaner left all our glasses and cups around the bathroom sink for us to put away!
We never ate in as there are dozens of cafe's near by.
The room windows are sealed but the air con is set to switch off after one hour if you fail to trigger the movement sensor in the ceiling near the door.
The bed cover was way too warm. The newspaper was kindly delivered daily.
Unless the price was excellent I would probably not want to stay again,despite a good position in town.
The pool looks very shallow and is open to the weather on the roof, did not make me interested in using it.
