I stayed here for two nights in March 2015. The Mantra One Sandy Bay Road is located near the wonderful Salamanca Market; you literally leave the hotel and are just about there. My room was spacious, clean and quiet for a good night's sleep. The washing machine was brand new, too bad I was just at the start of my... More

Hi AnneMho. Ha-ha; great to see that you found the driving lesson useful. Hope you had safe travels around the rest of Tasmania. Fantastic to hear that you enjoyed the apartment with its facilities and the close proximity to everything. We hope to see you back again soon. Auf wiedersehen Thomas Berstad General Manager More

Stayed for a couple of nights on a business trip. Room was big with not much furniture felt cold and tired. Bathroom was the same. Just big and not practical. Check in experience was just ok. You need to book a car park in advance or you have to park on the street (which I did). This means you have... More

Hello Ash K So sorry to hear that we missed the mark with your stay Ash. Unfortunately, we only have 14 carspots undercover, which is why you have to book ahead. There are however, other parking alternatives close by and we are more than happy to help with directions. We are very accommodating and if there is anything in particular... More

Three of us stayed in a 1BR apt for MONA FOMA which was fantastic as Mantra is just a short walk to the Harbour, Salamanca Markets, CBD and Sandy Bay. Although located on a busy street, the room was relatively quiet. Room was comfortable for three - the third slept on a roll away bed provided for by the hotel.... More

Hi Miranda C. Thank you for leaving such great feedback about your stay with us. The rooms are indeed spacious and quiet for such central location, as you point out. Good to hear you enjoyed Mona Foma. We hope to see you again for the Dark MOFO festival in June. Thanks again Kind regards Thomas Berstad General Manager More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights while travelling around Tasmania. The room was clean and comfortable and the manager friendly (unfortunately the check-in person on arrival was very take-it-or-leave-it). BE AWARE............there is LIMITED parking and unless you stipulate parking when booking you may miss out, as we did, and have to park on the street. Mantra Sandy... More

Hi there Rushie08. Thank you for leaving feedback about your stay. Great to hear that you were happy with your room and that you caught me on a friendly day.

While this hotel is not lacking from being in a good location for Salamanca Markets & the Harbour front, it is the hotel itself that lacks. It was clearly an office building at some time in its life, which is not to say it couldn't be stylish. It just didn't meet our expectations. We managed to get in house parking... More

Staff at this hotel were friendly and accomodating. The apartments are an odd configuration - entering via the bedroom, walking through the galley kitchenette to the large lounge. The only real issue I had in my room was that the water taps to the washing machine were turned off - something only discovered after much fussing around with the cycles... More

Hello Scott A. So sorry to hear that we fell short of your standards, even though you contacted us before arriving to make sure you would have positive things to write about us.

This is an apartment hotel a few minutes walk to Salamanca in one direction and the CBD in the other. Although on a busy intersection the 1 bedroom apartment was quiet and well-equipped complete with kitchen, washing machine and dryer. Parking is limited and you're best to reserve it when booking your room.

I stayed here for one night on a business trip. It is centrally located, although the entrance is a little hard to find in the first instance as is the entry to the car park. The apartment was a great size for 1 or 2 people and included cooking and laundry facilities. The lounge area had a large window that... More

Hi Jane D. Thank you for giving such detailed feedback on your stay with us. The units are self-catered as you point out, but we are working on a chargeback facility with a local cafe at Salamanca; just 3 minutes away across the park. Thanks to the double glazing the units are generally quiet, but I'll get the airconditioner serviced... More

The postal address may be Sandy Bay road but the entrance to Mantra is in Davey St. It would be helpful to mention this on the website. The need to pre book the limited onsite car parking is "buried" in the small print. Asking for $25 to use the wifi for two nights is exorbitant. The room was large and... More
