    Great value and locationOnly down was ceiling fan was covered in dust, as was the top quarter of the walls. Obviously not cleaned in a long time up there. Being a beautiful old building, the ceiling was extremely high, but just not nice to think if a chunk of dust will drop onto us at night. Other than that, brekky was simple but sufficient and great for price. Location can be beat, between Chapel St and South Yarra Stn. Would definitely stay again as staff very friendly and bathrooms being extremely clean.

    Comfortable stayConveniently located close to public transport (train and trams) and the main shopping strip on Chapel St, also easy to get to city and St Kilda. Staff were friendly and helpful, dormitory room was relatively spacious, with comfortable bed, and a locker big enough to fit my luggage, however no lock was provided. There was only a fan provided for the room, so can get pretty hot in warmer weather. I was impressed by the bright and clean bathrooms (four individual ones on the top floor). Excellent breakfast with tea, coffee, hot choc, juice, milk, cereals, breads with choice of several spreads like margarine, vegemite, jams which were provided in small individual packets, and canned fruit. Only downside was that I could not access the free wifi at all during my stay. But overall, I had a great stay here.

    Friendly staff, convenient location, cleanliness

    I enjoyed my stay in Claremont even though I only stayed for a short time. The interior is like a French/European style which was lovely. The place is very quiet and has a nice homelike atmosphere to it. The reception staff is very friendly and I was delighted with their service. The bathrooms are very clean and they have clear instructions everywhere whenever you need assistance. Highly recommend this hotel for those who wants to explore the beauty of South Yarra with so many unique boutiques and restaurants nearby.

    I really love it there. Will recommend to my friends if they were to visit melbourne. The staff were so friendly and attentive. Once, it was raining and we got wet. A staff saw us and immediately passed us towels. Talked to other hotel guests as well. Very homely place.

    Value for money, location, free wifi

    The Hotel Claremont Guest House is an older style building with excellent facilities, including a large kitchen, laundry and common areas. Although there were lots of people staying, including school children, I found it to be quiet and private. I had an ensuite room which was large and comfortable, with free wifi and digital television. Although the room wasn't serviced, the bins were emptied daily and the room was very clean.

    It is located in the central Melbourne which is just 2 stops from federation square by train. The tram stop is also 1 minute by walk. It is good value of money, friendly staff and fantastic free breakfast and Wifi. The surrounding suburb is vibrant with many cafes and restaurants, as well as local design shops.

    Travellers beware of the problem in their booking here for double bed. Always turns out to be a bunk bed. Issue was never solved. Another issue i have is with the water in bathrooms, hard to mix and match to your preferred temperature. Other than that all is good and great for the budget specially the free breakfast. Cleanliness is 10/10.
