Travel Blogs from Melbourne
Well, that's one week down already in Perth and I'm not quite sure where the time has gone... Alcohol probably doesn't help with the perception thing I guess! Having tried our hand at snorkeling up the coast from Perth and boogie boarding on a waveless sea, we decided that a more active sport should be our next challenge. Squash it was, so with …
... to go to the markets but as luck would have it they had closed earlier in the day. Instead we visited the Federation Square and lounged in the sun on the free chairs provided. There is also a museum on the square known as the AAMI museum with a few different free exhibits where you can spend a few hours strolling around.
That evening we met up with one of our South America friends, Jasmine who ...
So here's the flights - Melbourne to Brunei about 8 hrs, Brunei to Dubai about 7.5 hrs and then Dubai to London another 7.5 hrs
Ange made a friend on our first leg that she ended up calling a pain but did give her a hug goodbye. Ange is a much nicer person than me lol. Because of my leg I asked for the aisle seat so on the second and third leg I sat behind Ange. She wasn't all that impressed with her fellow row mates. For ...
... Stu’s relative in Perth even told us that late-night and weekend shopping was only introduced a few years ago in Perth. So if you come to Australia for urban life you better stick to the big places on the East Coast such as Melbourne and Sydney. There is so little urban life in Western Australia, that the country overview map even shows tourist places like Coral Bay with a population of 190 people, and that a town with 50.000 people is already the fifth largest settlement. The ...
... to get some more antibiotics. After that we just took it easy preferring to stay warm inside though for dinner we did venture out to the city centre as we had a dinner date with my friend Rosarie. It’s always great to see Ro and it’s been fantastic to see her twice in the span of a month as we caught up in Queenstown awhile back. The restaurant called Movida (www.movida.com.au ), is located on probably one of the funkiest lanes ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Como Melbourne - MGallery Collection
The Hotel is in a fantastic location next to Chapel Street with great restaurants and shops. Also near the tram with access to the city and St Kilda. We spent three nights here and loved it.
The room was very comfortable with a lovely big bed and snuggly pillows. The bathroom was huge with a big tub and free duck slippers and use of bathrobe!
The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful and this was a great place to stay at the start of our trip. Would stay again on any return trip.
Of all the times that I have been on holidays this has far been the best hotel experience! The level of service we received was excellent!
Best Of Everything
best staff best valat service best room the como suite couldnt not have asked for anything better been to alot of hotels and this one is very highly recomended
My partner and I went there for a quick get away. We wanted something clean and fun. This hotel is located on Chapel St (Shopping mecca). Fantastic location. The room was great with 400 thread sheets. The bathroom had a bath that could fit at least 4 people in it. I liked the idea of the roof top pool, especially considering the 4 different temperatures in one day. The Como is close to trams and is central to shopping. All in all it was great!
Recently stayed at the Como hotel for a quick 2 night getaway with my partner & i must say that the hotel absolutely made the trip. Got upgraded to a spa suite which was huge with a beautiful spa bath in the bathroom - def big enough for two!! Staff were exceptionally friendly and the hotel was amazingly warm (temperature wise) during a very very cold Melbourne weekend and the king size bed the most comfortable I have slept in!!! Cant comment on the breakfast (had late "brunches" on chapel street) or the pool / spa (didnt have time to check it out) but if the rest of the hotel is anything to go by im sure it wouldve been great. Also location gets a huge tick chapel st is fantastic for shopping & it took only 10mins by tram to get into the city. Overall a fantastic hotel that i would not hesitate to recommend.
Loved this hotel great rooms, very nice staff and excellent location. I do have to agree about the smell of smoke in the room though our floor was non smoking floor, but our room did smell of stale smoke.
Everthing else was great though.
Stars, Location, Atmosphere
Loved this place. Great rooms. Great Suites. Location was close to all that's going on. Downstairs bar is small but trendy. Excellent service. Left the cufflinks back in the states. Had a pair delivered for use within 10 mintues. Filled with famous folks from around the world.
Not what i expected
noisy room on third floor, stank of smoke (requested non smoking but told not available) showerhead leaking, and would not sit in the clip so kept falling out, no bath, breakfast good, noce decor, overall I would not go back.
Boutique Hotel of the stars, The Como South Yarra
Our local friends picked The Como for our visit. This is crowded with tennis stars during the Australian open and the favourite of many of the pop stars that visit Melbourne. We wanted some thing close to the famous Chapel St shopping strip, close to the city just 10 minutes by courtesy limo, close to fine dining and of course we wanted to be pampered without paying a fortune. We hate the huge foyers of 5 star hotels and all that fuss. This is superb place to stay, understated with friendly ambience and simply a delight.We dined at Ciccia Bomba and Caffe E Cucina which were good value and Red Orange which we loved. In the courtyard on friday or saturday very charming.Chapel Street is a great place to shop, and after hours full of young people enjoying themselves
Nice Hotel in a Nice Location
This was my first stay here. Nice location. 2 blocks from the a train station and on Chaple Street, with a lot of interesting shops and good restaurants. Tram goes by, also. I wish my bedroom and bathroom at home were as big as they are here. Very friendly staff. Nice big bed with six big pillows. Giant bathtub with a menu of special baths that room service will draw for you on an hour's notice. I liked the Gentleman's Bath with a Brandy and cigar. I would stay here again. I got the best price and an upgrade by calling the hotel directly.
