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

It was in a great location in between or near all the arcades (malls) in downtown Sydney, and blocks from Darling Harbour and Harbourside shopping/ restaurants. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We also had a full living room, dining room, and laundry. It was perfect for us and such a great time. Just don't ask a local... More

The location is perfect, right near town hall, Pitt Street and Darling Harbour/Cockle Bay. The room was huge for Sydney and seemed very quiet and well maintained/clean - the laundry was a plus. Breakfast options were good if you get there early. The breakfast staff were lovely but the reception staff could be nicer. We will definitely be back!

Great central location, short walk to Pitt St & public transport. The room was far more spacious than I expected for a city hotel. The bathroom was a bit dated & small patches of mould. In need of a make over. Having a washer/dryer was an unexpected added bonus. Reception staff could afford to loosen up a little & even... More
