“Not Long Enough!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

I recently stayed at The Como and I was pleasently impressed. The pictures online do not do this hotel any justice! The hotel is in a great location and the service is great!

The welcome from the gentleman who checked me in was friendly, polite an professional exactly what you would expect from a hospitality professional.

My room was stylishly appointed from the sheer curtains, court yard gardens,beautiful amenities & amazing bath. no detail was skipped. The team here have opperating a luxuary boutique hotel down to a fine art.

All staff I intereracted with incluing F&B staff were friendly and professional.

I look forward to many more return trips to the Como.

I've Stayed At The Como before And Always Enjoyed It, But The Prices Were Getting Out Of My Budget. However With Their Winter Special I Was able To Return. The accommodation Is Stunning, Spotlessly Clean And Very Well Appointed, The Breakfast Which Was Included In The Rate Was Outstanding. The Staff Friendly, Professional And Welcoming. Also A Very Nice Touch When I Collected My Car From Valet, There Was Complimentary Water Placed In My Car. I Hope To Return.

We had a family visit to the Como for just two nights recently. We absolutely loved it! Check in was a joy. We had the open plan spa suite which felt huge and luxurious - enough space for all of us with our 2 yr old in a porta cot in the study and our 6 yr old slept on the huge couch. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff: we borrowed a stroller for the whole visit and also umbrellas when we went out.

I don't normally notice one bed from another but the bed at The Como was so comfortable I thought I was sleeping on a cloud! Fantastic. They seemed to have a new room service menu and we tried it one night: it was delicious and piping hot, with lovely options for the kids- so impressive. Not like any room service I've had before.

Only negatives: no kids shows on the TV channels available. Also, we would have loved to have a jacuzzi at the pool area upstairs... Small things really.

We wish we could have stayed longer but we'll hopefully be back to The Como soon.

I thought I'd try the Como as I'm an Accor member and the reviews on Trip Advisor were very good.
1. Check in an the staff in general are excellent. They are all very friendly and the service they provide is first class.
2. The rooms are HUGE!!! I don't know if they are all the same size but my room had a kitchenette and dining table and a lounge area. The decor is modern and very comfortable.
3. The bed!!!! I didn't wake up until 8:15am and I never sleep that long. It was so comfortable and I loved the pillows.
4. Bathroom, again Huge!!! Separate shower and a nice big spa bath.
I didn't eat in the restaurant so I cant comment on that. I did have a couple of drinks in the So Bar and that was pretty good.
I think this is now going to be my favourite Hotel if I don't have to stay in the CBD
I had a room facing Chapel st and it was very quiet. could hardly hear any street noise.
