We stayed at this property for 3 nights in Dec 2012. Check in was relatively easy at Claremont house although the staff there does not seem very friendly.Location for this apartment is great as you can walk to South Yarra station in 5 mins. We had a car and parked at the property with no charge (although the traffic seems to be terrible all the time around South Yarra area). Lots of restaurants around this area.
The apartment was clean enough. There is a sofa in the living room that can turned into a bed. Bed was comfortable and there are 2 TVs in the apartment. Cleaners need to pay more attention on the cleaniness of the bathroom and kitchen. As previous reader mentioned, the kitchen is grubby. The frying pan is supposed to be non stick but it's all scratched so you can hardly see the non stick material. The kettle still have water in it and the inside was all rusty. Air conditioner was a bit old but does the job. We ran out of shampoo and conditioner on our 3rd day and rang the reception and they kindly provide more . They are also happy to replace towels if needed. There is a self service laundry downstairs but a bit costly ($3 for the washing machine and $3 for the dryer).
A few things to note:
- the apartments are very close to the train tracks so be prepared to hear the trains at night time. I bought some ear plugs because of this
- the apartments were quiet for 2/3 nights we stayed there. On the last nite (Thurs), sounds like some teenagers returned to their apartment at 3am in the morning and they were very noisy
Overall considering the price I paid ($135 per night) and the location of this apartments, I think this is a good place to stay.
