Overall, I was pleased with Hotel Claremont. Service was efficient and most important of all, the shared showers was very clean. The only down side is that the hallway was noisy when ppl walked pass, but I'm a heavy sleeper, so it didn't bothered me much. Also the wifi connection was weak in my room, constantly dropping out. Will definitely... More

I stayed 3 nights in the double bed room. The small room was fine for just myself, though it may have been a bit too crowded with two people. The shared amenities were always clean. Breakfast was included each morning, and the staff were very friendly. I parked on Darling Street, just off of Toorak Road, in a paid parking... More

We stayed 5 nights. It was very clean and had friendly service. It was a two minute walk from South Yarra train station (and maybe ten minute max ride to downtown), and lots of great restaurants.The breakfast was simple but good, with toast, cereal, tea, and instant coffee included and fresh coffee for $2. We had a private room that... More

I was surprised by how basic (spartan) the bedrooms were. 'Hostel' or 'guest house' or 'budget hotel' would be a more accurate description of this establishment than 'hotel'. However, I liked the building and its reception area and staff. And the Claremont enjoys a wonderfully convenient location in an upmarket shopping strip close to the railway station (South Yarra), the... More

Decided to stay here due to its location and price. The location was great with the South Yarra train station only 100 metres from the hotel and the price was reasonable with breakfast. Unfortunately the twin room had bunks in it and was extremely cramped (not the exact depiction on the website). The room at night become stuffy with no... More

This hotel has the charm of an old fashioned hotel that is past it's grander days. However for what you pay and the location it's very good. Do beware, most twin rooms are single bunk beds and the bathrooms are shared. Personally I think they would better marketing it as a better than average hostel, as this is more true... More

This place is ideal for the budget traveller. Room was small but clean and warm. Breakfast is a bonus, friendly staff and great location make this guest house a winner. This guest house is located close to a train station that within 10minutes gets you to the city centre. Staff are helpful with outings and advice on getting around.

This is one of the best budget hotels and its right on the Melbourne city fringe. The train to the MCG and city center is a 1 minutes walk. Trendy shopping strip of Chapel Street is here too. Local eating is varied, well priced with fast or sit down food on offer depending on your needs. The hotel isn't smelly,... More
