Hotels Down Under: The Warm & Friendly Como Melbourne
Truth be told, Australia isn't always warm. Staying in Melbourne could mean some cold weekends so you'll want a hotel that can handle the ranges of temperatures and a wide range of potential requests. Apparently that hotel is the Como Melbourne. Up to several tests, the Como has passed with flying colors. For those who found themselves surprised by the occasional and rare spells of chillier weather, the hotel warmed them with its luxurious bed and spa bath which some guests claim can fit two people while others thought even four.
Got upgraded to a spa suite which was huge with a beautiful spa bath in the bathroom - def big enough for two!! Staff were exceptionally friendly and the hotel was amazingly warm (temperature wise) during a very very cold Melbourne weekend and the king size bed the most comfortable I have slept in!!!
With 107 rooms the Como prides itself on maintaining the charm of a small hotel with highly personalized service. One past guest raved how the discovery of his forgotten cufflinks was no problem as the hotel staff personally delivered a new pair within 10 minutes of his call for help. The high quality service has gotten them national attention as well, they've won "Best Deluxe Accommodation in Australia" and "Best Luxury Hotel in Victoria" for several years plus, the guest reviews are top.
The only problem people seem to find here is the remnant smell of smoke as the non-smoking trend hasn't yet hit down under. But our guess is, let the staff know it's bothersome and chances are they'll get you an air purifier within 10 minutes.
