Had a problem with the booking caused by Qantas, resolved easily Room excellent, large for a studio room Good restaurants nearby and perfect for convention centre, short walk away. We walked to Myer centre to shop, can always pay for a ride back on bicycle.

This is a good hotel with easy walking distance to the theatres, train station and restaurants at Southbank. Mantra has studio apartments and standard rooms. If you;re a light sleeper ask for something away from the railway as the hotel backs on to it. This visit the breakfast staff seemed totally overworked and it took ages to order something -... More

We were at a exhibition in the convention centre, which was less than a 10 minute walk, the rooms were spacious, had a small kitchen, very well placed for the waterfront restaurants, so really excellent all round.

I stayed 2 nights here for a business conference held at the Convention Centre. It is an absolutely fabulous location. We were able to take the train from Brisbane airport straight to Southbank and our accommodation was only a few short km walk which is ideal.

We were fortunate enough to get a room at such short notice (works fault). The unfortunate part, we had to spend 10 days in an apartment next to the train tracks. Every night, we only got 4 hours of no train noise before it started the day again. The apartments are beautifully appointed and the room was always cleaned beautifully... More
