Brady at Reception sent up a complimentary bottle of champagne when he learnt it was our wedding anniversary and it proved to be the start of a wonderful stay at the hotel. Our room (330) was modern, well appointed and had a lovely view of an internal garden. We didn't hear any traffic from the street, despite the proximity to Chapel St. The hotel is walking distance from the fab shopping and dining options on Chapel St and Toorak Rd and a lovely boutique cinema is in the complex below. This is a fab alternative to the larger hotels. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Como after reading Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We had a really spacious and spotless room with large ensuite. We loved the location - only 100 metres from trendy shops and cafes but no street noise at all within the room - we were really impressed! The kingsize bed was comfortable. Extras included additional down pillows, quality bathroom products, complimentary bottles of water, bath robes and a good range of Tbar quality tea. There was no coffee plunger however - just instant coffee. (eek)
Valet car parking was $35 but we were able to park our hire car easily on the street for free Fri and Sat night. (Week days may not be as easy though)
The only minor issue was that the bath was really high and rather awkward to climb in for a shower.
The staff were efficient and very courteous - our checkout taking only 30 seconds! We'll be Back!
