“Very happy with the Como Hotel”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

My husband and I went to Melbourne for the weekend to celebrate his birthday and from the moment we stepped into this hotel we were impressed. Greeted warmly, immediately offered coffee, room ready at10 am and then upgraded to a one bed suite. The suite was roomy, stylishly furnished and quiet with a lovely view over the park from the balcony. The staff were very attentive and respectful and went out of their way to assist. They even put some birthday balloons and a birthday card for my husband in the room. We didn't eat at the restaurant but had a snack at the bar and breakfast on one morning. Both were fine. The location of the hotel is convenient being close to the train and trams with great shops close by. So much better than staying in the city. We loved the Como and it is now 'our' hotel when we visit Melbourne.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the park are lovely.

The room we stayed in was a deluxe twin room for $230 a night. We stayed 2 nights a Thurs and Fri. The bed and bathroom were clean and tidy. Staff were efficient and polite.

Watch out for the mini bar items. Don't consume ANYTHING until u read the mini bar items on the list. If you do consume, you will pay a small fortune eg $7.50 for 50g nuts! I could get the same brand at Woollies down the road for $3.50 but 375g! Breakfast was more economical at a place outside the Woollies entrance, it was $11 for eggs bacon and tomato. They also sell nice chocolates. To get to Woolworths and big W turn right as you exit the main hotel entrance. If you want to shop turn left to Chapel St, it has good restaurants, pubs and shops.
It was a long way to the airport taxis cost $63 one way. It was also a little trip to the city. Trams cannot be used unless you are a local and can get tram tickets from a railway station. So if you heard that they are free, like we did, not true.

From check in, with a really special upgrade, to check out, this was a wonderful stay. Courteous friendly staff, clean room and bathroom with ultra deep spa bath, gorgeous Japanese-inspired courtyard, and yummy breakfast. I will definitely stay at the Como again, next time for a night or 2 longer, use the pool and gym, and spend some time shopping in this great retail district!

This hotel was amazing. My boyfriend and I stayed for one night in an open plan studio and the room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

Very nice place to stay, close to shops and restaurants .
Must go to "Two Birds One Stone" , close by for great food.
Only downside is the very noisy Chapel Street, so if you need your sleep,
request a quiet room.

Great location, particularly if you want to be out of the city but close to the city, i.e. for the Australian Open. Front desk staff and concierge (Grant) were first class. A great addition to the MGallery collection.
