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

My friends and I booked a Quad Share room, which features 02 x double decker beds. This room is shared by 4 individuals. Towels and linen are provided. We did not have out own toilet; the shared toilet is at the end of the corridor. Our first impression of the hotel wasnt great as there was this very strong detergent... More

Chose Claremont because of its close proximity to the city of Melbourne. I must say the hotel was well worth the money if you're someone looking for just a place to sleep and have proper bathing facilities. Toilet was very well maintained despite it being a shared one. There is breakfast provided as well which includes cereal and toast. If... More
