After my recent review of room service of a previous 5 star Hotel I thought it appropriate to review the room service at this one - Excellent. Reasonably priced, good options and excellent food. Pulled Lamb Tostadas for Entree and Steamed Tas Salmon with Bonito Broth and leek for Main, both very very good and timely service. Similar price to... More

I stayed at Mantra on Russell for four nights with my sister. We were visiting Melbourne for a concert, and to see the sights. The location of the hotel was pretty good, however we did experience a few problems. After booking our apartment months in advance, and calling twice to make sure we would have two single beds, and specifying... More

The best things about this hotel was the friendly and helpful staff and it's central location. We stayed in a two bed apartment and needed to be moved because our air con was not working and it was very uncomfortable. Once moved, the air con was working but the temperature could not be controlled, so it was either on full... More

I really enjoyed staying in this hotel. At first I was surprised because when I first arrived, I thought the hotel was in Chinatown. It's right on the edge. But Chinatown in Melbourne is right in the heart of the city, close to everything and is very mainstream. Two blocks over and you are in the heart of the shopping... More

We stayed at Mantra on Russell in November 2013 (late review!); my partner and I were in a well appointed Studio Apartment and were attending a conference that was being held at Mantra on Russell. We went for the Bed, Breakfast and Parking package, and I am very happy we did; the buffet breakfasts were superb with a large range... More

I'm stuck here tonight and have been two two separate rooms now. Neither was vacuumed. Bathrooms were dirty. Walls were covered in scuffs. Nothing had been dusted. I do not recommend! They charge if you've booked even if you're not satisfied and then you're stuck in a quite substandard room.

Hello we booked accommodation through Wotif.com.au and requested a pleasant room as wedding anniversary (over 20years) through the website. This was not conveyed to the hotel so we ended up with a crappy room facing a brick wall. Upon calling reception to ask if they received my request, they said no however, they graciously upgraded our room free of charge... More

I come to Melbourne frequently but the first time ever been to this hotel and I am quite pleased. It is clean and modern with rooms large and comfortable. This is one of those perfect places to stay if you are in Melbourne for a couple of days but don’t want to eat out each night. The kitchenette is modern... More

We stayed at Mantra on Russell for a week during the Australian Open. Location is good, being very central to everything in the CBD. Short walk to various tram stops. Our room was a one bedroom apartment, which was very spacious and staff were very accommodating. There were a couple of down sides. The shower over the bath was difficult... More
