Stayed with a friend in this apartment hotel. Close to everything you would need in the city especially a good Chinese meal in Chinatown. Apartment had great kitchenette, comfortable beds, and a bath! Not many hotels seem to have baths nowadays. Very reasonably priced and everything was clean and working which is a good sign. Would stay again.

First time we stayed here (checked in 13.11.2014), after LOTS of research decided this was best for us and definitely were not disappointed. We got a great deal on a one bedroom apartment which was spacious and comfortable. Had everything we needed and the bathroom was particularly big with a decent bath tub for the kids. The pool was great... More

Awesome central location. Tidy clean room. Wifi is awful - even worse they think they have wifi but it doesn't actually work. And they charge $25/day. DO NOT STAY HERE if you want connectivity. Staff are in the dark ages, don;t even realise it is a relevant part of the service.

My wife and stayed here from 10 to 17 Nov 14. The rate was good and included a full buffet breakfast. It's very central to the Mall, China Town, wine bars and public transport. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. The one big issue is that they use king singles joined to make a double. However, the join was quite... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Mantra on Russell. The room was clean and basic, the price was reasonable, it was centrally located within walking distance of shopping/restaurants/museums, and the view was great.

This is my 2nd stay here each time I have had a one bedroom apartment the rooms are clean and large. Great location everything is in walking distance small shopping centre within meters up the road and heaps of restaurants around the hotel. The buffet breakfast is quite reasonable. I will most definitely stay here again.

Booked a "mystery hotel" deal on wotif.com at the last minute. My husband, my 9 year old son and l were pleasantly surprised to discover the "mystery hotel " was a well appointed 1 bedroom apartment at the Mantra on Russell with lovely views of the city. Did not dine in the restaurant but enjoyed a lovely buffet breakfast in... More

Well located in the CBD for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. One bedroom apartment had reasonable size room and the facilities that we required. First accommodation we had stayed at in Australia that did not provide free wi-fi in rooms. Some of the breakfast food was not hot enough. Reception staff were very helpful in arranging our transfer to airport.

My partner and I live in Melbourne but stayed here as a 'city escape' for his birthday. Room was very clean and spacious, loved the heated pool, had it all to ourselves, excellent location, central to everything. I looked at so many places before booking at this was the best value for money I could find, we were very happy.

We have only ever stayed in an apartment in this hotel (3 times now, this was the 3rd visit so thought it time to actually write a review since we keep coming back to it!) and the apartment is a very decent size! Full kitchen so if you want to do your own cooking, there is nothing you are missing.... More
