I had last stayed at the Como more than 10 years ago and enjoyed it. It had fallen off my radar with all the new hotels that have opened in Melbourne in the past couple of years. So it was with curiosity that I returned to see how the hotel had held up. And, the response is good!
It appears that the hotel has had refurbishments as it's looking great, fresh and stil contemporary.
The check-in staff were helpful and the offer of a complimentary espresso was greatly appreciated. A nice touch and one I hadn't experienced before! Though it was a struggle to juggle my bags and coffee to the room down the staircase that leads to the lifts. A ramp would work better here.
Our room was very stylish however quite small. It faced Chapel st, though minimal street noise. The bathroom has a lovely black marble art deco style which I liked and the corner spa was a nice treat to unwind in before hitting the Melbourne nightlife. I hadn't used Morrissey toiletries before and was very impressed...good quality and I'd be tempted to buy them for home.
I noticed the TV didn't have all the digital free to air channels which should be a standard offering these days.
Sleep quality was good both nights and didn't hear any neighbours.
Well done Como in reinventing yourself and keeping with the times!
