Her Indoors and I stayed 4 nights just before christmass,in a one bedroom apartment. We've stayed in a studio here before,but while nice,i'd always go for the apartment. Spacious,comfortable,nice decor,good firm bed,full kitchen,though we only really used the fridge,theres that many food joints just outside the hotel, chinatown restaurants all along little burke st,just round the corner. Well set up,and... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. It was decent enough. Although the bathroom and powder room could have been cleaner. The beds were comfy and kitchen was good. The biggest drawback was the noise coming from the street outside. Being right next to Chinatown and a couple of pubs, there wasn't one night where I slept through. Be aware... More

I got booked into this Mantra for one night on a short business trip to Melbourne. I was given an excellent two-bedroom, two bathroom apartment on the 16th floor, with beautiful views. There was a fully equipped kitchen and a nice living/dining room. Mantra somehow manages to be both a normal hotel and an apartment hotel at the same time,... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment on the 13th floor. Clean and spacious for 3 adults, it never felt crowded, and came with a fully equipped kitchen. I'm a light sleeper but I could barely hear the traffic even though the window and balcony door doesn't fully seal when closed. One problem with the gaps was someone in the... More

We enjoyed our stay in a lovely one bedroom suite. Rooms were clean and well serviced. Bathroom was modern and the bed was certainly comfortable. Loved the snacks and drinks at the downstairs bar. One mishap with the balcony door lock created a rather humorous moment. Parking for CBD was well priced. The value for money of this hotel is... More

My wife and I were extremely impressed the staff at reception - very friendly, co-operative and helpful, giving good sound advice about the city of Melbourne. My only criticism would be car parking, too expensive for country folk.

My stay was average. The furniture in the 1 br apt is so 70s. The towel rails in the bathroom fell apart. The vent in the laundry was falling off the ceiling. The carpet looked old & dirty. No free wifi in rooms. No proper room meal service after 10pm. There are even charges for late check outs. What on... More

We found the Mantra on Russell to be functional accommodation for our family of four. The beds were well sized, the kitchen well stocked, the laundry accessible and the living space very usable. We stayed in a 2br apartment suite, which was similar in size to many small 2br rentals we have seen. The pool is a good size and... More

We stayed for a week over Christmas in a one bedroom apartment, the apartment was nothing like the pictures we had seen when looking for somewhere to stay (maybe some are but certainly not the one we stayed in), the furniture was very dated and the grout in the bathroom tiles was mouldy. We had a unit on the side... More

We had a one bedroom premium suite which I had paid extra for - I don't think it was worth the extra for the view! Although it was very spacious and very clean, it was dark. The first room we were allocated overlooked the city as stated. However, it also overlooked the bins from the restaurants of China town. We... More
