This was the tenth time we have stayed at the Apartments of South Yarra and it is impossible for us to find something new to say. The accommodation is tucked away just off the area's busiest street and is handy for transport into and out of the city..ITt really is a brilliant location The rooms are kept immaculately clean and were ideal for the 18 days we stayed there. The staff (who are based in the nearby Claremont Hotel) were, as ever, cheerful, efficient and very responsive to any requests. We look forward to staying there again in 2019.

When we booked this appartment we hadn't any idea where or how it was South Yarra. After visiting Melbourne city centre we knew South Yarra was the best location choice. The area is really worth visiting and in fact much nicer than the city centre of Melbourne, it's full of interesting shops and good restaurants and very lively. There's a train station (South Yarra) 10 minutes walking from the appartment which takes you to Melbourne in 10 minutes. Location couldn't be better. The appartments are all situated in one single 3-floor building and have free parking just outside. The rooms are modern, well furnished and with kitchen facilities, bed very comfortable. We stayed here before going to Tasmania (ferry not too far by car from South Yarra) and we liked so much that we booked again for a second stay after returning from Tasmania. I highly recommend these appartments for a visit to Melbourne. Just forget the free and miserable breakfast at Hotel Claremont, it would be in fact better publicity for the appartments not to provide this free breakfast... You need to pass by Hotel Claremont for the check-in and to get the keys, it's only 5-10 minutes walking. You might get much better prices if you contact directly Hotel Claremont or the South Yarra appartments instead of other hotel sites.

We spent five nights here and were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was. A lovely small village feel even though it's only a couple of minutes to the railway station. There's a well stocked old fashioned food store opposite the railway station and many good cafe's and shops nearby. The good sized flat has everything you need, is very clean and we would certainly stay here again.

Stayed in downstairs apartment with car park at door. Short walk to Chapel Street and a million restaurants, cafes, shops and the Como movie theater. Tram around corner takes you into CBD. Clean and comfortable apartment. Very good value all round. Definitely recommend.

It's a great location ....we needed to visit a friend in the Alfred hospital which was walking distance,so allowed us to pop in several times in a day without the worry of parking. The restaurant strip is just at the end of the street, so no shortage of eating options from basic to high-end dining. The appartments (we've stayed 3 times now on different levels) are always spotless. They are basic, but very comfortable. We love that they support repeat custom by offering a discount for returning clients. It also has free parking and free wifi. Value for can't find better!

The room was pleasant and spacious. The bed was comfortable whilst possible a little on the basic/cheap side. The bathroom taps were hard to turn on in the shower and the temperature kept changing accordingly. Other than that the only issue was having to carry heavy bags up 3 flights of stairs

key pickup was back at the Claremont Hotel, a short walk from the Sth Yarra Train station which was convenient. Rooms were good size with kitchenette. Recommend if you are staying for a week, but there are so many dining options in the area. A bit of train noise, but we were so tired at night, we just crashed. Ask for a ground floor apartment if you have any issues with using stairs. We found the place to be clean, well decorated and very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast back at the Claremont is adequate, if unexciting. The usual toast, cereals, tinned juice and packets of jam.

Just 1 train stop to MCG. Great apartment but getting a car park is a challenge. 1 space per unit prone to outsiders use. Reception at Claremont Hotel on Toorak Rd. Excellent value for money. Tram on Toorak road also.

I have had a terrible experience with this company! Lived in their South Yarra accomodation for 4 months and when I moved in the place was a gross mess. Clumps of hair all over the floor, dishes dirty with old food and mould growing in the corners of the rooms. When I was moving out they took their time evaluating the place and failed me for having a bit of dust on the skirting, when the place was clearly not cleaned when I moved in. A month after the contract ended a debit came through my account for a months rent unauthorised, taking all my money out of my account. This is a simple process to prevent and should not have happened, completely unprofessional! I have been moved out of the building for 2 months now but still havent received rent back. On top of that they have sent me bills claiming its my repsosibility to pay them when the contract ended 2 months ago. I have had too many problems with these people. Would never go back there again. Fair warning to students! Doesnt even deserve a star.

An absolute last minute trip which required a short stay and a car park in surburbia. I was honestly not knowing what to expect as I was aware of the Hotel Claremont (which is not a place I would stay) but the other reviews did put my mind at ease. The apartments are actually a block of flats which have been freshly refurbished (somewhere I might have once rented as a 1 bedder!) and super close of Chapel Street. Exceptionally neat and clean. Great provisions and well appointed for the price. I really couldn't fault them except to note that they can be a little noisy due to the design but that might just depend on who particular guests are and it was a Saturday night (I always take ear plugs so no bother to me!) The customer service was exceptional, really courteous and efficient.
