Reviewed July 29, 2013

These apartments are only a 10min train ride from Flinders Street station and Melbourne CBD, very conveniently located to shops, restaurants and cafes in the Chapel Street/Toorak Road precinct. There is no reception at the Apartments so you must check in at the Claremont Hotel which is located near South Yarra train station and only a 5min walk from the Apartments block, check out is easy just leaving the key in the apartment when you leave. Our Apartment (Apt 12) was clean and looked like it was recently updated and was equipped with a reverse cycle aircon, iron/iron board, heater, extra blankets/pillows, flat screen TV etc. The down side was that it is located opposite to the railway line but the noise bearable and we were able to sleep sound (Tip: If staying here ask for room 7 through to 12 as these apartments are at the back of the block and will be quieter). My husband and I thought this was good value for money and was good for any short term stays if staying out in South Yarra.

Room Tip: If staying here ask for either room 7 - 12 as these apartments are at the back of the block an will...

Very noisy apartments located on main railway line, with trains running all night = NO SLEEP! Don't stay in street front apartments. Key pickup from Claremont Budget Guest House as no reception on site. Website photos not of apartment building exterior. Very average accommodation for the price.

Very serviceable apartment with free wifi and in a terrific location. Out of the centre of Melbourne but very convenient to it. Lots of shops and eateries nearby. The apartments are allied with the Claremont Hotel and benefit from the brilliant service and assistance that you get from the Claremont. You can even drop in to the Claremont for the free breakfast if you wish.
The bathroom needs a paint in the apartment I was in, but otherwise - top notch.

Perfect location, close to shops (very important) and close to public transport. Clean, spacious and still in a quiet area. Best apartment I have stayed in for a long while. Free wifi and it was no problem to extend my stay for same price for an extra night. Two tv's, comfortable bed and plenty of towels and extra bedding. Will definitely return again.

Room Tip: I had a room on the ground floor and it was really quiet.

The outside looks a bit dodgy, but inside was clean and neat. Kitchen is a good size and all appliances clean and functioning. Considering how close it is to Chapel Street, there was no road noise. You can here the occasional train go by, but it isn't very loud. There was an outside courtyard which was a bit grotty, but didn't get time to use it anyway. Minutes to walk to Chapel St and Prahran Markets and Toorak Road. Train took under 10 mins to Flinders Station and trams are in both streets. Complimentary light breakfast at Claremont hotel was a bonus. A free off road car space is available. Very conveniently located for walking to everywhere.

For $120/night (1 night) we got a 40sqm apartment. Fully equipped kitchen, large bedroom, integrated bathroom an a spacious living room (adjacent to the kitchen, open space).

Very celean, well decorated, free wi-fi access for 2 people (1gb limit in total). Service/personnel well excellent and we had a parking spot.

It's in South Yarra which is a shopping location with many restos/malls/shops. 10 minute tram ride to down-town Melbourne.

Would happily stay here again. Good value for money on all fronts.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 1st or 2nd floor (vs ground). More privacy.

Absolutely the best value services apartment in the area. Exceptionally clean and very spacious one bedroom apartment.
2 minute walk to jam factory, so the location is just unbeatable.
Off street parking and very nicely appointed kitchen.
Will absolutely stay here next time I'm in south yarra.
The only drawback was a bit of morning train noise, but if you sleep with your window closed this will not be an issue.
