When I heard that the Singaporean Luxury Hotel Brand “ Como “ was set to make its entry into Australia by opening their first hotel in Perth at the Heritage listed Treasury Buildings , which were being renovated at that time , I could not wait to get a glimpse . And Open House Perth certainly provided the opportunity during last weekend, after the Hotel opened at end of October this year. All though only certain areas were accessible for the Open House visitors, from what I could see the 48 room hotel will certainly be beyond expectations in terms of décor and luxuriousness. Designed by architect Kerry Hill , the property has understated elegance , and dare I say so , a hint of old world charm , which gives it an aura which is totally compatible with the heritage inherited with the building itself.
I spent some time in the bar, and it is an idyllic setting to relax and catch up with a friend or two after an afternoon of shopping in the city. The service was impeccable and the hot chocolate was to die for.
