Great room, location, comfortable bed, good service, nice breakfast, highly recommend and would stay here again at the drop of a hat. There were only two small things that stopped this being a 5-Star review (as that means pretty much perfect). The water temperature and pressure were extremely difficult to get right, i actually spent more time getting it to... More

Had a one bed apartment. It was very comfortable, spacious and had everything I needed. It was quiet and very well serviced. I love... More

I recently stayed at the Mantra on Russell for a girls weekend. The position so close to Chinatown and the central CBD was fantastic. The front of house staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms clean and comfortable. Thanks for a great stay!

I recently stayed at the a Mantra on Russell for seven nights, and had a wonderful stay. The room was clean and well maintained, the bed and pillows very comfy, the lounge and dining areas comfortable, and the kitchen well equipped. I had a one bedroom apartment, on the 18th floor, with a balcony view over Little Bourke St, which... More

Very Nice hotel, worth the price. Location is great and most attractions are within walking distance. Next to China town and a few blocks to the river. I have stayed here several times and will certainly stay here again.

It is nice to be greeted by friendly FOH staff who are always prepared to assist (even lending us an umbrella on a damp Melbourne day.)Our suite was large with plenty of room to spread our wings and quiet (which we always appreciate). We utilised the swimming pool and spa and found them clean and warm. Breakfast was the standard... More

Ideal accommodation and location in the city! Close to China town, and QV. I had the one bedroom appartment, which I thought was excellent for the price. Front desk were friendly and helpful and serviced 24 hours. Didn't eat at the restaurant, because there were too many other places to eat in Melbourne that were cheaper! Melbourne is open late...

Whilst accommodation and location are good make sure you have your mini bar checked before you leave. We have twice been billed for unused items. I don't know what system they have in place but it ends with the customer footing the bill for a housekeeping error. When questioning the account with staff you are made to feel guilty unit... More

I choose this due to its central location. Great one bedroom apartment. Excellent breakfast. My only gripe is in this day and age not having free wi fi in all rooms. Disappointing.i hope management does something about this. One public computer is not what people want.

Our room as booked had a too-soft bed for oldies with crook backs so we asked and, after trying another bed (same room type) the front desk found a firmer bed for us in a different room type that was perfect. For 4 nights this made all the difference. Located close to lots of great restaurants and cafés lunch and... More
