Stayed here for 1 night for business. Found an awesome rate on Expedia.

In terms of location very central between CBD, St Kilda & Richmond.

Very modern feel and the front desk staff very polite and friendly aswell as efficient. Checking in was a breeze and got an upgrade to a 1 bedroom apartment so thank you! (Thanks to the le club membership).

The room was modern and spectacular very comfortable like my home! I've been impressed with all the M gallery series of hotels in Melbourne.

Room was clean and tidy aswell as spacious. Bathroom was awesome separate shower and spa. The spa bath was amazing, and although I didn't get to use the In room massages and spa selection I will next time.

Checkout was quick and efficient and all staff are very polite and knowledgeable.

Love coming to Melbourne for that warm, friendly melbournite hospitality.

Looking forward to coming back!

Stayed: August 2014

Funky little hotel in a perfect location for experiencing Melbourne. Hard to fault anything really, friendly, knowledgable staff. Room key didn't work (did not really worry me) - but reception gave us a couple glasses if wine comp. A couple night in the TV didn't work and they upgraded us complimentary , the service, drinks and food was always excellent, so we weren't really that worried about a TV, but they couldn't do enough to apologise.

We stayed at the Como from June 23rd through the 27th. Beautiful accomodations and friendly staff. We were warmly greeted at the front desk and our luggage was taken up to our room. We had a beautiful courtyard view out our floor to ceiling windows. Breathtaking!
One thing we found odd though was the bathtub/shower combo. The tub was a jetted-spa so it was taller than a regular tub. But for this 5 foot person, it was rather awkward getting in and out of the tub/shower! I am not certain an older person could have manipulated it very well. The bathroom was large enough to accommodate a separate shower so we didn't understand why there wasn't one installed.
I know, I know.....you are probably saying, "That is your biggest complaint?" Well, yes, yes it is.
The first night we were there we were awakened to the sound of the fire alarm at 5am. I quickly called the front desk and was informed to come downstairs asap. There was a small fire in the warehouse next door to the hotel. The fire department was efficient in putting out the fire and the hotel staff did a wonderful job keeping everyone informed. The chef promised us it wasn't he who started the fire!! We were able to take pictures of the nearly naked man who only appeared to have a coat on and socks. A thoroughly entertaining night!
The pool was amazing as well although it was quite a journey getting to it.
We enjoyed our stay at the Como and highly recommend it to one and all.

Dear Robyn K,
Many thanks for providing us with such an in-depth online review. I am so pleased your stay was overall enjoyable. I am sorry about the disturbance with the fire alarm , it is certainly not a regular occurrence. I am however pleased this did not ruin your whole night and the staff were able to effectively reassure and keep you informed.
We have a number of different room plans and upon your next stay we will be sure to provide you with a separate shower to bath.
We look forward to welcoming you again in the not so distant future.
Kind regards

With all the great views I was skeptical on how good it would actually be, but this hotel lived up to the hype. We stayed in the one bedroom room after being upgraded. Rooms were large and the bathrooms were huge! We arrived much earlier then the check-in time due to flights and expected to just leave a luggage there and go shopping until check-in but with out even asking they were nice enough to check us in at 9am! The hotel is right next to the south yarra train station and tram and its just a quick ride to get to the city and most tourist destinations. Will definitely be staying here again when I'm back in Melbourne!
