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
Had a wonderful time here as the staff were excellent. Ever so friendly and most obliging. Rooms were great. We were give an upgrade where the room was just perfect. We found the location so convenient. Trams just outside or a 5 minute walk to the South Yarra rail station. Breakfast was just delicious with staff there also most obliging. In all our 3 night stay was most enjoyable
From the ultra friendly front of house to the cleanliness and presentation of the hotel we had a wonderful stay at Como. So close to busy Chapel Street eateries and bars the hotel is set back to offer privacy. Our upgrade was greatly appreciated. Would highly recommend the Como Melbourne.
Clean, comfortable and lovely hotel with large rooms. Perfect location near many shops and restaurants and despite being near a busy area with construction nearby, rooms were soundproof and we didn't hear anything.
The best thing about our stay was most of the reception staff - specifically Ilse and Laura who could not have been more kind or welcoming. We had one issue with another staff member but we felt it was dealt with perfectly. Despite this our stay was wonderful thanks to Ilse and Laura who were lovely and made us feel at home
