Apartments of South Yarra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 January 2012

We were surprised by this unit. It is conveniently located with parking on site. The original building is old but has been totally redone. The furniture is modern and the unit is large enough for long term stays. Please note, the keys need to be picked up at a hotel about 2 blocks away. This was not an issue and now that we know the process, we'll be back.

Room Tip: There are no elevators but the stairways are wide and safe.

Reviewed 11 November 2011

My husband and I stayed in the Apartments of South Yarra for one week over Christmas 2010. The apartment was spacious and very clean with a fully featured kitchenette, meals area and free internet access.

We did not have a car so it was easy to catch a train from the city to South Yarra station (2 stops) and walk two blocks to the Claremont Hotel to check in. I had previously stayed at the Claremont Hotel and on both occassions found the reception staff extremely friendly and helpful. The apartments themselves are an easy 5 minute walk from the hotel.

You cannot fault the location in South Yarra with everything in easy access and we found it was the perfect base to explore (midway between the City and St Kilda). I would not even bother looking for anywhere else to stay the next time I am in Melbourne and for $100 a night you can't go wrong.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower floor if you don't like stairs

We stayed in the South Yarra Apartments which are part of the Claremont Hotel on Toorak Road. We arrived at 7am so the apt wasn't free until 1pm so we were able to store our bags at the hotel. We were allowed to have breakfast at the hotel every morning and use their wifi - even after we checked out we came back for the wifi. (Note: the apt only has cable internet) The apt was clean, spacious and warm and had all neccessary and essential equipment required. Only 5mins walk to South Yarra station and chapel street so great location also. Good place to stay in Melbourne!

Room Tip: All good - apartment 11 had a view of the city

Pros: Pretty clean, very quiet. Comfortable beds. Complete kitchen (a lot of apartments like this don't have real ovens, only microwaves - there was a hob, oven, microwave, fridge), decent heater, small outdoor space so you could eat outside if the weather cooperated. The staff were friendly and helpful at reception. Basically the apartment delivered pretty much all that was promised.

The neighbourhood itself is a really good base for exploring Melbourne, you're 5 minutes by foot from the train and trams, as well as shops etc on Toorak.

Cons: Some of the cleaning in the bathroom wasn't great (hairs in corners, a bit of mould in the shower etc), I would have liked to have a better selection of TV channels (we were traveling with our young son - this means you're actually in the room evenings), the broadband internet was annoying on two fronts: the supplied cable meant that you HAD to use it on the kitchen table and the speeds were near dialup a lot of the time.

We have stayed in the Apartments of South Yarra three times over the past three years.The fact that we keep returning should tell you something!
The location is really good with tram and train access very close by. The apartments themselves are situated in a quiet street between Torak Road and Chapel Street, two of the area's most vibrant thoroughfares. Supermarkets, specialist foodstores and the excellent Parahan Market are all nearby.
The cooking faciliities are more than adequate and there are TVs, DVD players and radio/CD players provided.
The apartments are administered by the staff at the Claremont Hotel, five minutes walk away on the Toorak Road. They are helpful, friendly and efficient, acting promptly to ensure the happiness of their customers.
We can recommend The Apartments of South Yarra to anyone who wants clean, unfussy, safe accommodation at a decent price in a really good central location.
