“Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Tram and South Yarra Railways Station are just , literally, outside the doorstep. Convenient store is just across the street. Kitchen facilities to do your own cooking with several locked big frigdes to store your groceries. Cool enough during the summer , as long as you don't let the hot air outside in. Bathroom very clean and done daily. Beautiful and old suburban district with character. $15.00 cab ride from the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.

Just spend 5 nights at the Claremont and for what it is it was great value. Can be a bit noisy as you can hear people walking past your room at night but for the cost of A$74 per night this was fine. Single room was small but had a TV and the toilet/shower are not far away and staff kept the bathrooms clean. The continental breakfast was great, able to sit and eat and read the paper. Staff were friendly. I would certainly recommend this place to friends.

I had friends from the UK come over and wanted a cheap but clean hotel near a station so to get in and out of the CBD.

The Claremont is on Toorak Road, South Yarra

I took them to the Claremont to have a look and they liked what they saw and were given a lovely clean room just right for their one week stay.
The price included breakfast.
The bed was clean the sheets were cleaned and my friend he checked the bed very carefully.

It is only a minute from South Yarra rail Station and the Tram number 8 outside the station. perfect location.

Lots of restaurants and cafes, Chapel Street minutes away by foot.
They thoroughly enjoyed going to my friends café Splash juice bar in Como shopping centre, Toorak Road, South Yarra. Value for money for breakfast, lunch.

They were extremely pleased and every day they would jump on the tram or train to the CBD and do their thing.
They and I would recommend to people on a tight budget to have a look at the Claremont as it is not to everyone's liking.

Room Tip: Ask to look at the rooms first of all. Check out a couple of the rooms and ask to see the serviced r...

I wasn't more than a single room with a double bed that called suit. The room was cold, the bathroom was very small and congested... the restaurant was shabby, the breakfast contented only serials and milk and overly sweetened juice. it wasn't worth as the advertised...!

Stayed here for 2 nights in October as we were down in Melbourne for a gig.

If you aren't too fussed about having your own bathroom and you are just looking for somewhere to rest your head on a budget, then this is a decent place to stay.

PROS;
* The room wasn't particularly large, with a double bed, a table and a clothes unit to hang clothes on
* Staff were very helpful, polite and courteous
* Close to public transport for getting to and from the city
* A short walk from Chapel street (loads of bars, shops & restaurants)
* Free tea & coffee all day
* Free WIFI
* Good breakfast served daily (included in room price)

CONS:
* Room a little on the small side
* Shared bathroom facilities may put some people off

Stayed here for 2 nights, and I really enjoyed it. We only spent the night at the hotel though, as we were out during the day time. The rooms were small but good enough for the cheap price we paid for them. Bathrooms were always clean although communal. Actually, the entire building was very clean. Free breakfast was a great plus with plenty of great varieties of food and all-day supply of tea/coffee. Staff were very friendly and helpful too. Slept great too!

Stayed here recently for one night. The place was very central and well serviced. The room was small but adequate and there were plenty of bathrooms that were clean-enough. The place was quite noisy though and for most of the night I could hear the other guests walking around or the road or train station. Breakfast was basic.
