The Hotel Claremont is ideal for the person who doesn't like to waste their money on 'trimmings'. It was clean, staff friendly, the room was spacious and well appointed, with ceiling and bench fans provided (with 40 degrees outside, we kept comfortable). Breakfast was generous, and little extras like free chilled water, and hot chocolate any time was available in the dining room. The Hotel is a very short distance from the South Yarra train station, with beautiful shops and restaurants also at our doorstep. The Mexican restuarant on the way to the train was great. For low cost, budget accommodation, this hotel is excellent.

The location is fantastic - a stone's throw from South Yarra station and close to shops, restaurants, cafes, and short walk to Prahran. The breakfast which is included in the price is excellent - pretty much everything you want other than cooked breakfast but far better than most hostels. The staff are lovely, really friendly and helpful - and (what is often unusual for lots of hostels) happy too. The downside for me though was that the windows in the rooms are locked so that they only open about 3 inches which on a hot night doesn't let the air out and it was HOT!!! There is a ceiling fan which didn't reach my end of the room and the free standing fan didn't really do the job. Being an old building there was no air con. So ... a great place to stay in winter but avoid in the height of summer unless you like sleeping in a sweat box.

The Claremont is conveniently situated for bars, restaurants and public transport. It is really a good hostel rather than a guesthouse. The bathrooms are plentiful and kept very clean. The breakfast is excellent and free tea and coffee is available all day.

The best of this hotel are :
- Location. It is only 50m from South Yarra Railway Station, where you can go very easy to Flinder St and Southern Cross Stations and the greater Melbourne area.
- Location (again). The Tram in front of the hotel is going directly to Flinder St Station.
- Location (again) The Toorak Road where the hotel is located, is a business centre with row of different type of cuisine, Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Steak house, Cafe etc. open until late.
- Location (again). Close to the famous Chapel St for branded clothing shops.

The breakfast is included with plenty supply of toast, cereal, milk, tea and coffee.
The shared bathrooms were clean.
Each room has a flat TV screen on the wall.

The negatives are minor :
- the room is rather small, with fan only, but there is plenty of spaces in the dining room and reading room to spent the relax time before sleep with WI-FI facility for computer
- Unless you have the front rooms which affected by road noises and night people on the road, the rear room are better with less noise penetration from outside/road

Room Tip: The rear room away from the road are better for light sleeper, less noise affected.

We had an excellent stay at this guesthouse/hostel. The rooms are good. Bathrooms and shower rooms cleaned every half hour. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a good location near chapel street where there are many bars and restaurants. It's also right next to south Yarra train station. Train takes about 10 minutes to the city. Will stay here again
