I had stayed at the Mantra on Russell before and it was much nicer then. The room I stayed in this time definitely needed an update and a good clean. The general room had been cleaned nicely but the carpet, curtains and especially the balcony felt grotty. The furniture was dusty and the kitchen cupboards very chipped. However, the service... More

We spent one night at this hotel when we made a quick trip down to Melbourne and we did not regret our decision! This is a great hotel. There is a parking garage attached to the hotel, meaning we didn't have to drive around to find somewhere, and they have their own floor with the lift taking your straight to... More

The location of this hotel is great. It is an easy walk to Chinatown, Federation Square and shopping. The staff was very friendly and professional. However, the hotel needs some upgrading. We booked a 2 bedroom as we were traveling as a family. It is always great to have this option for a family! The carpets appear to be very... More

Great central location close to theatres, restaurants and bars. We stayed for one night as we were in the city to see at a show at the Comedy Theatre which was a very short walk away. Pre theatre dining and drinks afterwards very close by with good selection. Our room was very spacious. We had a one bedroom apartment with... More

We stayed here for a week while on holiday. This was our first time in Melbourne and we couldn't have chosen a better location for exploring the city. The apartment we stayed in was spacious and clean. View from balcony was great and all the staff we had dealings with were polite, helpful and friendly. The only negative that I... More

Location: The Mantra on Russell is located right in the middle of the CBD and on the edge of China town. There are great restaurants and shops all within walking distance. Southbank is just a 15 minute walk away for example. Parking is right next door in a secure section of the public car park. Service: The staff are extremely... More

Stayed here for a few nights on a business trip. The location is great - rooms are average. Service was good. Overall rating - better than average, but they lose points for 'infrastructure'. Recommendation worthy.

We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment for 5 nights and I can't fault them. Arrived early, our room wasn't ready so they changed rooms so we could check in immediately. Noticed there were only 2 kingsize beds set-up so rang and asked them to separate them and bring in a roller bed for our 3rd child. Went for a walk,... More

Compact apartment, everything you need for a few days stay. Kitchen seemed well equipped although we only had breakfast and made lunches when we went to the cricket. Spacious enough for us with plenty of storage. Nice and clean. Friendly staff when we needed to check in with them. Bonus is the location. Close to all areas of the city... More
