I had a relatively lengthy stay for business in Sydney. The wonderful staff at the Mantra on Kent made the trip a bit easier. While the rooms are large for a downtown location the real upside is to this location is the friendly, efficient staff. A level of service I would expect from the better hotel chains in the U.S.....

I was unsure what to expect of this hotel from its unassuming look on the street, but once you are inside you are greeted by the friendly front desk staff and find a quiet little respite from the busy city. They offer a nice breakfast on the second floor, but the rooms are what make this place so nice. They... More

Mantra on Kent's appartments are spatious, clean and quite comfortable. The location is not bad either, a couple hundred meters from QVB and Darling Harbour. Overal a good choice for a short stay in Sydney CBD.

We stayed there from 27th June - 2nd July and then again 3rd July - 5th July (we had an over night stay in Bathurst in between) I was very impressed with the level of service and friendliness we received from the team at reception.

Our balcony room was noisy - overlooking the very busy street. No soundproofing - bins, lorries and sirens at 2am! Balconies were only on rooms floor 10 and below. Offered a higher room- had no opening windows and the 'view' was only if we sat sideways leaning off the sofa looking through very dirty windows. We opted for the balcony... More

Unfortunately the stay did not get off to a good start when my partner tried to check in. They did not offer to store her luggage while she waited for me to arrive, they offered her not water, and would not let her use the toilets sighting, "they are for hotel guests only". Really poor form. The room was a... More
