My husband, young son and I stay in Melbourne 2 or 3 times a year to visit family and always add a cbd stay to enjoy this fabulous city. Have stayed in most of the top hotels over the years and would again for a special occasion but for an all round great hotel we can't go past the Mantra... More

In Russell Sr around the corner from Little Bourke st and China Town is this nice hotel. Good size rooms and great facilities. Some are worried about the price of the wife but there is far more to this place than that small issue. Pool and gym. Great breakfast area and more importantly I would say the best Happy Hour...

I stayed for 4 nights in October to attend a large event at Etihad Stadium. I needed a hotel near transportation with a kitchen...and got so much more. I was travelling on my own but there would have been plenty of room for 2 people. The bed was comfortable and the wardrobe ample (though there needed to be many more... More

If you're looking for decent accommodation, then this hotel is it. However it is overpriced for the average amenities. The staff's terrific and always helpful. The rooms are decent, beds are comfortable. Don't expect anything fancy. It is your standard hotel at Australian high prices. The breakfast buffet is not too bad. If you're looking for something quick then this... More

This hotel is at a perfect spot. Close by to China Town and the Malls in the city. The rooms are decent and quiet and the staff helpful. Checking in was fuss free and it was perfect that they even provided for free umbrellas when it rained heavily.

I last stayed here about five years ago, The quality of the apartment I experienced had been maintained and the excellent feeling of space is the factor that sets this Apartment offering apart and in my opinion, superior to many of the other competing Melbourne serviced apartment options. Gouging Rack Rates are a problem and I had to track down... More

We stayed at the Mantra on Russell for a week with our son. It was undeniably the best hotel we have stayed in Melbourne! The staff were extremely accommodating with requests (our son was only 10 months at the time so we had a lot of cleaning requests/extra bedding /porta cot etc) Anyone traveling with a baby knows how important...

We enjoyed four wonderful days at this hotel. The location couldn't have been better in the heart of Chinatown. Our apartment was spacious and well equipped. The kitchen was brillient for a hotel. The swimming pool was a real bonus and for once lived up to the pictures on the website. Happy to recommend this hotel.

We had acres of space, two TVs, a package that included a good breakfast and we had dinner at Mantra twice too! We barely used the kitchen facilities. I'm told the pool was nice. The room was clean and tidy, and housekeeping was good. The front of house staff were brilliant, even organising two wedding cars and helping with a... More

We went on a trip that included shopping, theatre and eating out, the Mantra on Russell was perfectly located for all of the above. The Emporium, Melbourne Central, and QV were all within walking distance as was the theatre. There were restaurants galore to choose from Stalactites across the road to Chinatown around the corner. The staff were friendly and... More
