The first impressions were poor as the parking arrangements are very confusing and we carried our bags down five floors to reception only to have to take them back up with us to the room on the 18th floor. The room, however, was very spacious, but had a broken window which was fixed by maintenance quickly once we informed housekeeping.... More

Rooms need to updated and the room service was a bit expensive and alot of choices. I did get room service breakfast wasnt that impressed. I found the carpark alittle hard to work out yet your so close within the CBD you can walk everywhere.

Have stayed in many Mantra hotels over the years and always receive excellent rooms. They have a home away from home feel. The room was spaicous and cozie. Service was at a good standard and location of hotel is close to everything. The hotel also has a deal with the car park next door (wilsons)? $30 for 24hr carpark but... More

I felt very un comfortable to that and when he finish he... More

My husband & I booked a premium 1 bedroom apartment as we have stayed here before & knew what to expect. We had a king size bed & a balcony with a view of the city (mostly high rise buildings). The unit was well appointed & clean. There was a coffee machine in the kitchen which not all hotels have... More

I have stayed here several times since about 2005, most recently in April 2015. The hotel is perfectly located right in the heart of Chinatown and only a few blocks from the Bourke St. There are lots of great little bars and cafes scattered around the Hotel. However, this place desperately needs a facelift. I stayed with 3 friends in... More

Not really fair to say average, but manly due to renovations going on in the hotel. Like any well used accommodation the rooms to get tired. Staff were very helpful both at reception and the restaurant.

We have stayed many times at Mantra on Russell and stayed again on our recent trip to Melbourne in March. So here's another review on it! All went well upon checkin, we were welcomed warmly, however one bizarre thing was the holding deposit for the accommodation is 100- if you pay by credit card and 500- if you want to... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and found the 1 bedroom apartment very comfortable. The hotel is in a great location to see the sights and restaurants of Melbourne. Unfortunately did not have a chance to use the pool or sauna. Will return when next in Melbourne.

We travelled from Canberra to Melbourne for Easter holiday. When we checked-in the "premiere" room, the door to the balcony was widely open. My husband went to close it and found the lock on the door was broken. We contacted the reception and waited for the guy to turn up. The first guy came up to check and told us... More
