“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

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 you're looking for a posh hotel with other additional facilities then this is not for you. Nonetheless this hotel is definitely worth what we paid for!

What a find, homely, comfortable and friendly. Excellent position to enjoy South Yarra, Chapel St and trains direct to the city only 100 meters away. 500mb free WiFi, not bad considering what a ripoff internet connections in Australia cost compared to other countries. We recommend the Claremont Hotel Guest House.

Good Value if you want a 'Sleep & Go'

2 mins from Train station, less than 1 to trams. If you are a foodie or a shopaholic, you will not care about the room as you will only go there to sleep. Which is great as it’s really all its good for. There was no couch or rest area, so it’s perfect if you just need a roof over your head. If you were to stay there for a few nights, I think it might become a little harder. You literally get a bed, a tiny desk & chair and a TV oh and some selves. That’s it. So it’s no home away from home, in saying that - you are not paying top dollar either, you can save it up there and then spend it on the shops below you.

2 main issues - 1) No toilets in room, have to go down the hall. 2) No lift, if I didn't have my partner I would have never got my heavy suit case up 4 flights of stairs!

Large, spacious, cleaned twice daily incl bathrooms, bright, free WiFi, free cereal and toast for breakfast. No mixed dorms, towels changed whilst I was there, locked doors and lockers in the room available. TV in my dorm (female 6 bed), no alcohol allowed on premises. Efficient and helpful staff. Next door to South Yarra station and close to Chapel St which has lots of shops and restaurants. Family, couple and solo traveller friendly, good mix of ages and Australian and non Australian tourists.
