The room we stayed at was cosy and lovely. Couldn't ask for me but we loved how it was newly refurbished from it's old greenish look to its new black sleek look. One of the best refurbished rooms we've seen for quite some time. The hotel services are great as well as their management.

Thoroughly enjoyed our night at Mantra on Kent. Amenities were excellent. Rate was very competitive. Check in and out was helpful. Shower was surprisingly good, small head but strong flow and temperature control was easy, towels were a little small but dried well. The room was adequate in size and well equipped. It was nice to sit on a lounge... More

Our stay was only OK. Staff were friendly enough but there are a few things that would make it unlikely that I stay there again.... 1. We arrived at 2:30pm and our room was not ready (even though check-in is supposedly 2pm onwards)... OK, so not the end of the world we waiting until 2:45pm and were able to go... More

Dirty apartment that was never clean the whole week I staid there. They only made my bed. Water stains in multiple locations and damp smelling. Scuff marks everywhere. Lights that did now work. Bathroom did not have a fan so when showering I had drips of water falling from the ceiling on me. The air con clinked a light long.... More

Staff are all friendly and room service is well priced, fast and high quality. Nothing negative to say about my stay at the mantra. Will stay again... More

Our family of 10 shared 4 units. We expected the usual hotel rooms but instead all had a kitchen, full laundry, main bed separated by sliding glass doors & much space! We found Mantra on Kent very clean, with great staff and exceptional value. We will visit again.

Staying over the queens birthday long weekend I was anticipating a very average room. Boy was I wrong. We were greeted by the manager and her supporting staff who were welcoming professional and willing to help. The room itself should not be called a "hotel room". It is an unfair label! The room was impeccable. Clean, tidy and plenty of... More

Great choice for a staycation within Sydney CBD over the long weekend. Customer service was excellent they took care of us from the beginning with bottle of wine on arrival and an amazing breakfast buffet each morning. Great sized rooms definitely value for money.
