Stayed in a one bedroom apartment in early August, this is a great location. Walked to Lygon St, and also close to heaps of restaurants and shops. Great to be able to use a washing machine and dryer, kitchenette for breakfast. One review I read said recently renovated, which I wouldn't say, however the rooms are still quite nice.

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

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!

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...
