A favorite of visiting celebs and fashion types, The Como Melbourne is all airy minimalism with 107 sleek guest rooms and spacious suites — some in pale shades, others in contrasting white and inky blue walls, all with floor-to-ceiling windows. Black marble bathrooms have Japanese-style spa tubs and walk-in showers; some of the suites also offer full kitchens and private balconies. The Brasserie restaurant serves an à la carte breakfast, and the hip SOBar is a buzzy place for evening cocktails. After hitting the shops on Chapel Street, guests can relax in the indoor pool, sauna and gym, or have an in-room massage.
In the Area
South Yarra is a fashionable inner-city suburb with several architectural gems (including Como House, one of Melbourne’s earliest mansions) bordered by the Yarra River. Chapel Street is a major shopping strip home to Cylk, a Melbourne-based brand that sells neutral, minimalist clothing made from sustainable materials, and Chapel Street Bazaar for well-edited vintage duds. Cricket fans will appreciate the hotel’s proximately to the Melbourne Cricket Ground, while high rollers will feel the same about the nearby Crown Casino. There are plenty of eating and drinking options, including Woods of Windsor, a taxidermy-filled bar that offers meaty snacks, such as pig trotter fritters.
How to Get There
I have stayed this beautiful M Gallery by Sofitel South Yarra recently.
It was very pleasant experience during the entire stay.
What made this hotel stand out from others, was how friendly and helpful the hotel staff are.
From the moment I arrived, welcomed by the concierge and receptions, to the house keeping and the gentleman at the bar, they were all fantastic.
To my panic after checked out that my girlfriend has left her ring in the room. The reception went to the room, found the ring, called me back within 10min.
What a service!
The staff at the Como are helpful and friendly.
The rooms are huge and well maintained. It is refreshing to stay at a hotel where you are not crammed into a tiny room.
The Como is close to shops, cinemas and some really good restaurants. It is also easy to get onto tthe freeway and is 10 minutes from the city and Chadstone.
There are self parking facilities at the rear of the hotel.
Love staying here - where you are treated with the utmost respect- the staff is amazing as us the location!
Looking forward to staying again - hopefully very soon.
Also enjoy all the little treats you get such a beautiful touch - thanks again
