There were lots of great things about our two night stay at The Como, we arrived around 1pm and were checked in by a lovely lady but I forgot to note her name, our studio room was clean and bright with a view of Chapel Street, I was worried it might be noisy with the traffic and the renovations but it was very quiet. I loved everything about the bathroom, the big bath, the cute duck to take home, the comfy bathrobes, lots of towels provided and the beautiful smelling toiletries. The bed was large and comfortable and the quiet room and thick curtains made it easy to sleep in.
The fridge was not very cold and had a bit of a funny smell. I liked that you were provided with a toaster so if we had ordered room service breakfast we could have toasted the bread ourselves, there's nothing I hate more than cold soggy toast! We weren't sure where to plug the kettle in and I ended up climbing under the desk to find a power point and I was a bit disappointed in the instant coffee provided.
We usually stay in the CBD but this location is fantastic with trams and trains close by as well as lots of shops and restaurants. Because there were so many options close by we didn't use the bar or the restaurant. We did use the pool which was nice but it was a bit of a trek to get there up to the 6th floor in the lift, along some corridors up a flight of stairs and through the gym. Upon checkout the lady asked our room number, if we used anything from the mini bar and said all right that's all done then, she didn't ask if we enjoyed our stay, where we were off to etc, which after the warm welcome we got was a bit of a let down.
Overall a very nice stay with a few small things that stopped it from being amazing.

I have not stayed at The Como Hotel for many years but it is still a wonderful hotel to stay. The rooms are spacious, and very comfortable beds. Very friendly staff and a great location in South Yarra

My wife and I had three wonderful nights at this superb hotel. We were greeted warmly on arrival and nothing was too much trouble. The place felt like a second home. The position is perfect for shopping, dining and transport. We are really looking forward to returning. Thank you to all for making our stay so memorable.

This hotel is ok, the rooms are quiet and have the biggest mirrors I've seen for a while which are functional as well as unusual. The bed was very comfortable and the bath very enticing though I only used the shower. It has the makings of a 5 star but, the car parking/drop off is small with no valet, there were renovations going on so take poor people at reception had to put up with deafening hammering, there was also limited room service available due to the building works.
The breakfast was nice but took a very long time for a couple of eggs and bacon to be cooked, nearly had to walk away as it took so long. The cold buffet was fine.
The premises is well positioned if you don't need to be in the city with a variety of shops walking distance.
The staff were very friendly and helpful in every regard. Will love to see it after the renovations as they've dragged it down for this stay.
