We have stayed in many hotels in Melbourne over many years from the excruciatingly appalling Oak on Collins, to the wonderful but expensive with small rooms Alto or Middle Park Hotel which got pettily greedy with breakfast to now a wonderful 3 nights at the Mantra on Russell. From the moment we walked in we were totally impressed. The welcome... More

I have stayed at the Mantra on Russell numbers of times over the past few years and feel like the standard has dropped. I am a member of the Mantra club c.u.soon and requested two singles beds. While I understand this is not always possible, no explanation was given from the front desk and we saw upon entry to our... More

We stayed at the Mantra on Russell over the September/October long weekend. The location of the hotel is great. It is situated on Russell Street, between Chinatown and the Greek quarter, only a short walk from Flinders Street Station and close to all the major shopping and eating strips in Melbourne However, the service is at best middle of the...

After having a very poor experience in a Breakfree hotel in Melbourne last year, the manager offered me a free night in same hotel or a voucher for another Melbourne hotel, which is what we chose. We stayed here in August 2014 and were not disappointed with our choice. The service on arrival was welcoming, friendly and efficient. We had... More

The location of this hotel is good, close to China town and shops. The staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean but a little tired now. I don’t think this is a 4.5 star hotel anymore. The furniture need replacing and the walls need painting, however the beds are comfortable. I have stayed here many times due to... More

We enjoyed 3 nights at the Mantra on Russell. We were allocated a first room were the previous occupants had obviously been smoking. We asked to be moved to a different room, which the reception staff did straight away, bringing our new keys up to us. The rooms are spacious, with a nice kitchenette, bed is comfortable. The location is... More

The Mantra on Russell was so easy for us to get to and park at. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which had all the conveniences needed to make our stay great. But if you want breaky or dinner they have a great restaurant and bar as well. Everything is so close and handy, city centre, theatres, sport, restaurants... More

I have stayed at Mantra on Russell a few times before and it's always been a pleasant one. My tip would be to ask for a room away from Russell St / Chinatown - it can get really noisy on Friday & Saturday nights! Great location, closed to all CBD main attractions i.e. Chinatown and shops. The rooms are always... More
