We have stayed many times at Mantra on Russell and stayed again on our recent trip to Melbourne in March. So here's another review on it! All went well upon checkin, we were welcomed warmly, however one bizarre thing was the holding deposit for the accommodation is 100- if you pay by credit card and 500- if you want to... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and found the 1 bedroom apartment very comfortable. The hotel is in a great location to see the sights and restaurants of Melbourne. Unfortunately did not have a chance to use the pool or sauna. Will return when next in Melbourne.

We travelled from Canberra to Melbourne for Easter holiday. When we checked-in the "premiere" room, the door to the balcony was widely open. My husband went to close it and found the lock on the door was broken. We contacted the reception and waited for the guy to turn up. The first guy came up to check and told us... More

This a very reasonably priced serviced apartment hotel. We stayed in a one bedroom which comes complete with full kitchen and laundry facilities. Bed was QS even though I think the website might say KS. Average quality fitting but all very functional. Housekeeping and room service are efficient. There is a small pool with spa and sauna facilities. Easy walk... More

Pro Clean Friendly service Big room Got a balcony room no extra charge Nice spa and sauna Con They charge $30 a day for parking at the carpark next door.

Warm welcome, nice rooms, perhaps a little tired as others have noted, but not off-putting. Oh so convenient.... on the door step of Chinatown, an easy walk to my work places in either East Melbourne or Carlton. Breakfast was great, didn't try the restaurant as so many choices nearby.

We had a very nice stay at Mantra on Russell. Excellent service, pleasant staff, clean room, nice amenities although the pool was out of service on our last day. Everything you expect in high end accommodation. My only small gripe was that the decor is showing its age. At this price point you expect the best and as it is... More

This is an excellent place to stay. My friend and I stayed there for a night and loved it. Room service really good and prices not to expensive. Beautiful spa and pool area also. Loved that they had the option to extend your stay for a small amount per hour. Will be staying here again.

I stay in this hotel a lot for work and always have the same experience. It is a nice hotel close to everything the City has to offer. I don't tend to eat there as there are so many great asian restaurants around it is a short walk to SouthBank and the Queen Victoria Markets
