Had an overnight stay to attend a concert at the State Theatre and was very impressed with the location, the friendly, helpful staff and the apartment in general. Good value for money, clean, and tidy

I chose the Mantra on Kent after spending a week at the Mantra 2 Bond, also in Sydney, which I really liked. This one, not so much. Please note that a lot of this will be a comparison of the two, and I also put in a review of the Mantra 2 Bond St. I booked an executive suite, which... More

I stayed at the Mantra on Kent for 1 week while I was in Sydney for business. The apartment was spacious, clean and well appointed. There were however, some issues which all together make this a less than ideal hotel. WiFi - The hotel markets itself to business travelers and functions. For business travelers, internet connectivity is a must.The WiFi... More

Hotel is located in very good location close to darling harbour, George street, Sydney tower, QVB building and others. It's close to town hall station but if drinking, it's close to city tunnel...

Definitely wasn't expecting a high room with views of Darling Harbour for the low price paid. Fully equipped laundry and large bathroom.A lovely king size bed with glass panelled sliding doors which could be closed for privacy and a sofa which extended to a sofa bed. Parking station next door which meant easy access to the car. Close proximity to... More

Unexpectedly given a high room with view of harbour. Turned out to be a wonderful spacious apartment, full laundry facilities, high pressure shower, comfortable modern furnishings and luxurious bed. Also location is excellent. Would definitely go back there for any Sydney visit, no question.
