Its not often that is stay in a hotel but when i do i make sure to give the most accurate and informative information for people wishing to stay. Hotel claremont is a cheap option for travellers looking for an affordable option when visiting Melbourne. It is a little pricier than normal backpackers however the privacy and small dorm rooms...

Not bad for a budget room. Only issue was the keyring on door key is huge so they insist on making you leave it at reception when you go out. Twice during the night when we arrived back we had to wait about an hour for the dodgy night shifter to come back to his office, and no apology at... More

I stayed here twice, because I really like that hostel. Very close to South Yarra train station. It's a clean hotel with friendly staff that always tries to help you to have a pleasant stay. I would recommend it to everyone. The bathrooms were very clean and the price is much better than a lot of hostels in Melbourne that... More

We stayed for a week at the Claremont and were glad we had chosen a double room with an extra twin bed. This gave us a nice, larger room. The rooms were clean, bathrooms very clean, breakfast was simple and easy and tea available at all hours. Being on the front of the hotel was a little noisy (trams, people)... More

Stayed at the Hotel Claremont for a weekend when visiting Melbourne for a wedding - it was Grand Prix weekend so most accommodation in the city was booked out or out of our price range. The rooms and beds are basic, and the bathrooms are as clean as you can expect for communal facilities (a lot cleaner than your average... More

The Hotel Claremont is a nice hotel for people on a budget. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the location is great (lots of bars and restaurants in South Yarra, good neighborhood), the breakfast (included) was toast and cereal, coffee, tea and orange juice. Plus you could get tea and coffee anytime you want. The staff was also really nice... More

Very clean and very good location for the price. Extremely nice staff. On the other hand room was definitely too small and extremely noisy. The firecutting doors keep on slamming. Ok for a couple of nights but probably not for a stay of 8 nights as we did..

This guest house is well located , few minutes from South Yarra train station and 10-15 minutes from the CBD.. Sharing your bathroom is not for everyone and some guests are not aware of others.. Nevertheless my stay was great.

Not terrible by any means, but I felt $89 for a very small room with basic shared bathrooms was a bit much, I think $60-70 would have been more reasonable. Paying an extra $10 for a hotel room or self-contained apartment with private bathroom would have made more sense. Other than that, breakfast and common rooms adequate, nice old building,... More

We stayed 3 nights here and were very pleased, the beds and pillows were very comfortable, everything was clean, the building itself is gorgeous! Its very close to the train station and there are plenty of shops and places to eat around the hotel. I would definitely reccomend staying here.
