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!
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
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.

... Steve informed us to not walk where we could not see where we were stepping; in other words, with every step, death was imminent (a perfect example of how Australia is trying to kill you).
We survived (obviously) and were able to witness some very cool animal behaviors. First, we watched some koalas in a few trees. The first one was awake and watching us. The second one was passed out. Contrary to popular belief, koalas do not get high from the eucalyptus they eat. ...
On the 2nd we took advantage of a free waking tour around the city. This is totally worth it. The guides are all young volunteers who love Melbourne and only earn money from any tips people leave. Given that its a 3 hr tour we were very shocked to see some people just give $5 between them! We made sure we gave our guide 'Flick' a good tip. By the end of the tour it was scorching hot, so we decided to go and check ...
... 6,000 km and what a journey it has been. You could easily spend years or a lifetime traveling around Australia, but our bank accounts are feeling a little light and so it's time for a quick visit in Melbourne and then we will carry on to SE Asia. We are both looking forward to starting the true backpacking part of the trip in SE Asia, and our first destination is Bali, which is right in Australia's backyard. It's been 2 months since we started our trip and we needed ...
... May to mid July...maybe we move the window a little later else winter will still be in full force??
We will get another Pug, probably a new 308 this time.
I'm thinking maybe we fly in to Portugal this time plus some time in the Loire Valley
VIsitors welcome...especially Master Chef Boris (and Marg) or the cooking twins Beth / Rick

I must have missed that special part of being a child where it's really fun to jump up and down on bouncy stuff because, I swear, the idea of bopping around on a gigantic sprung thing does not hold even the slightest appeal. I just recently bought a one year called Emma ...
