Stayed at Mantra on the Kent on a business visit to Sydney. The room was spacious and self contained with kitchen (oven, microwave, stove, etc) laundry and pantry. The room was presented clean with a wide selection of teas. On the downside, the bathroom looked tired and dated and air conditioning was not functioning. Overall good value though.

Mantra on Kent locates at CBD, just 5min to shopping mall or train station. The Hotel/Apartment is spacious, supplied with complete cooking facility for you to make your own meals. They also provide us a bottle of Red wine with compliments. There's washing and drying machine, ironing tools which is especially suitable for people who need to stay for days... More

Mantra on Kent is in an excellent location and the rooms are spacious with good cooking facilities. The rooms are clean but the age of them does make them "not as nice" as other places I've stayed. The staff are friendly and helpful. The amenities are limited though (gym/pool etc).

Mantra on Kent in Sydney is located near the Queen Victoria Building and is an easy walk to Darling Harbour. The One bedroom apartment I grabbed was under $200 a night and the hotel is a pleasant surprise. It is spacious, almost oversized for one. Has everything you need for either a short or extended stay.

Stayed for one night. Comfortable room, if a little clinical. The girls at reception were nice and accommodated my request for higher floor. I would stay again. There was a smell of dampness in the room next to the window, the fan in the bathroom could not be switched off, and the aircon is noisy when on. Apart from these... More

This hotel was very nice. Convenient to all the amenities, restaurants and main attractions in Sydney. Staff were very friendly and chamber maids/cheer staff were exceptional. Good value for money and only less than 5 mins walk to darling harbour. Rooms large and clean. Nice hot and powerful shower. Only criticsm is that I found it very cheeky that they... More

First time stay at Mantra on Kent. Was happy with the room and service provided. Clean towels and clean room every day. We stayed for 4 nights and would recommend to friends to stay here. One bad point was other patrons slamming doors on their way out/in in the middle of the night.

I was so happy with Mantra on Kent. We had an executive studio apartment. The apartment had sliding doors to section off the king bed which was great as our child was sleeping on the pull out sofa bed in the lounge. The kitchen and bathroom/laundry were modern and clean with a large walk in shower. The location is just... More

Very pleased with our stay at Mantra on Kent. Staff very helpful. My request for a high room with a view was granted without any problem. Thankyou. It was lovely to look out on Darling Harbour. Nice spacious room with kitchen facilities and washing machine & dryer if needed. Only disappointment was breakfast. Food was lukewarm - although staff apologised... More

Mantra on Kent does a lot of things right. I stayed in a large, clean, and attractive apartment-style room with a spacious bathroom with a washing machine, a very comfortable bed, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a balcony. The staff were friendly and their service was speedy. The location is excellent as well. Where Mantra could do better is in the... More
