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

this is the 2nd time I have stayed here but first time in a one-bedroom apartment. Last time was in a studio on a solo trip. This time with my husband and son we found the one-bedroom apartment ideal for our needs. Even with the pull out sofa bed fully extended we still had plenty of room. I found the... More

Room was brilliant but seriously Mantra, how do you think you are going to get away with no free wifi in this day and age? To be honest the room was way above my expectations but it really was spoilt by not having decent wifi especially in s place that is marketing to business travelers

Overall I thought this place was pretty nice. The staff was pretty helpful and friendly. I had a one-bedroom, and the room temperatures vary considerably between rooms. Generally, the living room is hot, the bedroom is warm and the bathroom is freezing cold. The rooms are also dark, especially around the kitchen area. There were quite a few times I... More

We had a great night. The hotel has just been refurbished so everything was fresh and new and the studio room was spacious and comfortable. Close to Princess and Her Majesty's theatres and Little Bourke St is just around the corner...plenty of choices for eating out!

I stayed with my wife and teenage daughter in a one bedroom apartment. The room was spacious and comfortable. My daughter described the roll-away bed she was sleeping on as “hospital looking bed”. She did sleep well, although I think this bed is getting close to its use-by-date. The room decor could also be described as being a bit dated,... More

We had a great 4 nights at The Mantra and were extremely pleased we stayed here. The facilities were well maintained, the staff ever helpful and the location superb for shopping and dining. We enjoyed using the pool and spa, the weather in Melbourne was wintery so it was very relaxing to warm up this way. I have stayed at... More

Mantra on Russell certainly ticked all of the boxes for a weekend of relaxation, food and sport - yes all of these combined can be relaxing!!! Great location to top end of the city pubs, and of course iconic Chinatown where everyone's budget and palate is catered for. Spacious rooms, balcony and kitchenette decked out with quality fittings. Easy walk... More
