I stayed here recently with four other family members and found the apartment comfortably accommodated all of us. We stayed in a spacious three bedroom apartment, the facilities were of a good standard (although the paint work was a little scuffed and the soft furnishings were showing some wear). The twin bedroom was ok, but you couldn't open the door... More

The Mantra was everything it promised it would be. Our one-bedroom apartment was clean, modern and comfortable. Space was used cleverly and the view of the city at night (with a little traffic noise which you would expect in the CBD) was definitely a highlight for us! The mini-bar was well stocked, the bed was super comfortable and the kitchen... More

My family of three stayed here for 5 nights last month and everything was just perfect. We had chosen it because of the location, and we weren't disappointed. Everything's very near, including shopping malls, cafes and even the museums and parks. As muslim travellers, it was also easy to find halal food along Rundle Street. The room we had was... More

Family of 5 stayed in 2 BR apartment. Apartment provided a good base for us spending 3 nights in Adelaide. Parking was available for a cost of about $15-20/night but need to book in advance (though able to use parking a block away if needed - we did this for the first night). Apartment was small for 5 of us... More

The rooms are comfortable and modern. The bathroom is up to date and clean. The reception desk was extremely helpfull. Most of all, you are in the middle of the city and a walking distance to the buzz. Great value!

I had booked a one bedroom apartment for an overnight stay and was surprised to be given a two bedroom. There was plenty of living space all around the apartment, and i can imagine it would be suitable for families or couples staying together. I resided in the main bedroom which was very spacious and more than enough for my... More
