The Como Melbourne
This time, I chose to stay Como Melbourne, as another part of Melbourne during my stays in Autumn.
A place packed by shopping outlets and considered as high profile society. The place that famous as affluent inner suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Nestled in Southeast of Melbourne CBD, Toorak is not a common place for tourists, but you never know before you really set yourself here.
Come for excellent classic luxury feel, but stay for the total privacy compared with other touristy side of Melbourne.
Don’t let the misconceptions about affluent area gives you impression about everything here is expensive. It’s far away from it.
Let’s explore this extraordinary boutique hotel!
Connected directly with Cinema Como Hotel, it’s strengthen its positioning as an art hotel. The sculpture and artwork are scattered around in each levels. The most obvious is in the lobby. From the entrance door until the end of the lobby, you will feel surrounded by arts in various forms.
The invitation to discover this signature 5-star hotel didn’t cost you much dime. In terms of price point, one night stay in this property is worth every dime.
Located at the corner of Chapel Street and Toorak Road, The Como Melbourne blends local Australian feel with hip touch and contemporary style.
Do you ever feel like staying in an art gallery? Literally “staying” for a night, i mean.
I felt that when i stepped into the lobby. As you bask in the deluxe interiors of this celebrity style boutique hotel in Melbourne, make sure to take time to appreciate the impressive collective of art.
The Front Desk Assistant Manager, Aastha Nigam, acted as double agent, helping you with check-in and recommendation to the coolest place as well. She recommended me to hit Top Paddock for a pleasant breakfast and i really thankful for hers. I took her advice and indeed it was adorable breakfast i had there.
Luckily, with being a Platinum Member of Le Accor Club, I was upgraded to 1 BEDROOM APARTMENT Category. Can you imagine, being alone in this 52 sqm rooms featuring a luxurious King Bed, separate lounge room with work desk and ensuite bathroom.
Kitchenettes also included if you really aiming for longer stays.
One thing that surprised me, the room has a connected balcony. More exact if I called it, a garden!
Spending a morning in here with a cup of coffee brew directly from the coffee machine is like a perfect way to start the day!
Let’s check the amenities!
Oh yeahh! I loved T2 teas, the symbol of premium tea and The Como Melbourne specially arranged the T2 teabags for each guests. How good they are!
Not to forget the bunch of alcohols for the late night lovers.
Thank you The Como Melbourne for these amenities. Hohoho.
The most crucial part of the hotel room is the bedroom. You can have a best living room and kitchenette in the world; but if your bedroom is sucks, it’s game over.
The Como Melbourne take this seriously with the comfy huge bed, i didn’t face any issue of insomnia in here.
Everything was smooth!
The blue rubber duck, as they called The Como Duck is waiting for the guests in each rooms.
For my case, it is nestled nicely on top of the bathtub. You’ll find The Como duck in every bathroom at the hotel and is a gift you can take home to remember your stay.
The toiletries are by luxury Australian brand APPELLES who combine essential oils and natural ingredients to make some of my favourite skincare products. I love this APPELES brand before i know Como Melbourne provided them all as the complimentary toiletries.
Would I stay at The Como, Melbourne again?
Oh yeah for sure!
The lineup from the rooms to the staff, the location and the amenities; The Como, Melbourne is a fantastic place to base yourself for a weekend getaway or even for a staycation.
The quiet and convenience The Como Melbourne offers makes it easy to explore the best that South Yarra and Melbourne provide.
