Wow... what a wonderful experience from start to finish. I booked online and then contacted the hotel. The hotel is not wheelchair friendly so I arrived on crutches after talking to Paul on reception again. He could not have been more helpful... amazing customer service. I received the most suitable room which was amazing and Paul even carried my bags... More

The Mantra on Little Bourke is a reasonably priced hotel located relatively central Melbourne CBD. It is a short 5 min work down to the Shopping Mecca of Bourke St Mall. Tucked away at the top of a hill on a back street the hotel offers a quite position within the histle and bustle of the CBD. The Welcome at... More

Recently I stayed at the Mantra on Little Bourke St, Melbourne. Admittedly it was during school holidays, however, I was slugged $300AUD/night for a very ordinary room with no bathrobe, free WiFi or decent coffee making facilities (unless you regard powdered coffee decent). The office block next door, which was on the other side of a Melbourne laneway, looked directly... More

Our room is large and comfortable with everything that we could possibly need. The staff are wonderful and very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. This motel is very central to trams, etc. I recommend it very much.

We went with the executive suite. For the weekend we were staying, it had a reasonable value compared with room size and star rating. I am a light sleeper so was looking for something away from train and tram line noise. This ticked all those boxes. It is still within a quick walk to trams and trains. The bed was... More

The location is excellent and the rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable too. The room service meal was good (although under- salted and no salt was provided) and arrived quickly. I am only giving this hotel a poor review because the reception service was poor - bordering on rude. There were too few staff so I was... More

Stayed here twice in three days - once in a large family apartment and once in a studio (which was near the plant room - not good!). Staff appeared disorganised (forgetting to get us to sign our arrival card!) and were downright rude to my husband because the room was booked in my name not his! Both nights were too... More

Only stayed one night but was really impressed. It's a really good city centre location and the room was a great size with almost separate lounge, 2 TVs, kitchenette and good size bathroom. Most importantly the bed was really comfy with great pillows (very important) and it was really quiet through the night. No view but that wasn't a problem.... More

Recently stayed for 3 nights in a one bedroom apartment, 9th floor, extremely quiet. Nice sized room, excellent bathroom and clean. Serviced daily. Downstairs is a restaurant but it is an easy walk to many cafes and restaurants. Room service is available also. Friendly and helpful front of house staff.

Little Bourke is a narrow street, not conducive to pulling a suitcase up a hill. But when you reach the top and enter this oasis, it was worth it. The rooms were unbelievably spacious, quiet, warm. And would you believe we had TWO TV's and were able to watch our favourite channels. There was a partition separating the living areas,... More
