... and then getting home by 5pm.

We spent our evenings looking for places to rent, until Wednesday, when we found out that we'd got a two bedroom apartment at Thornbury, which we're very excited about. We pick up the keys Thursday and move in Friday (18/7).

The night we signed the lease we celebrated with mini Ben and Jerrys tubs, and we took the photos thinking of you, Matt! When we were at the 7/11, we had a look at some of the flavours and there really is a ...

... be good to have a place for those interested in following my grown up adventure, without spamming everyone on Facebook with notes and "OMG THIS IS SO AMAZING, YOU SHOULD BE JEALOUS" and "EWW TICKS AND CAMP FEET AND NO MILO, I MISS HOME" status updates. So, will stop procrastinating, need precious sleep. Not looking forward to jetlag. Not long ...

... don't know what our street is like on game day, well let me tell you it is chock-a-block!!!!! We left the truck and van down the other end of the street. After lunch we decided the street was not going to clear before 5 so we decided to drive the van forward in to the drive way, and spun it around ourselves and pushed it out the back. What a ...

... so its pretty different..There was one of god Ganesh..which was maintained since 2006..its probably the longest one on the wall..London should consider this really because it gives a chance for people to express themselves without people doing graffiti..Melbourne is also notorious for its coffee shops..they do really nice coffees..I mean better than Starbucks lol and have loads of places to just chill and have a drink..visited the Victoria state library too where you get all these ...

... t only tell us which way to go but where we could purchase a myki card for the trams and how the whole system works. So we turned around and found our soon to be local corner shop and purchased our mykis and some reduced sandwiches, what a winner. The tram was swift and smooth and we watched Melbourne suburbs wiz by. Only 10 minutes later we arrived in the centre. So what can I say about the CBD? For one thing it's small, easily walk able, it's ridiculously clean and the ...

    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.

    Fantastic Service


    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!

    I have never been to a hotel where you are greeted each time you leave and return like the front desk staff did at The Como they should all be congratulated for their friendliness, their professionalism and most of all their help!

    The staff were absolutely without a doubt fantastic! Very friendly, helpful and what got me when they asked how we were doing or how our day was you could tell that they really wanted to know and they were interested! Not just asking for the sake of it!

    The hotel is a very beautiful place to stay in and the facilities were great! We have decided that next time we visit Melbourne we will definitely be staying at The Como and not only that, but recommending Hotel Como to all our friends and family

    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


    September, 2003

    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.
