This is a great location, convenient to CBD and backs onto Lit Bourke St and city trams from Bouke and Russell St. Staff are fabulous and helpful, rooms are very well appointed and immaculately clean. Explore an upgrade from a suite to a one bed apt. for a modest cost. Try to get higher floor level rooms as this area... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mantra On Russell last weekend. Our 1 bedroom apartment was enormous, It was very clean and well presented. The bed was very comfortable. Our apartment overlooked China Town which has some night clubs but we didn't hear any noise from there or from other guests staying at the hotel. This hotel is in... More

Just recently spent 2 nights in a studio room. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Central to everything also the free city circle tram not far away. Breakfast both mornings was good and had plenty of variety. One of the bonuses was the room had a balcony. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it.

We recently stayed here for 1 night with another couple. The 2 bedroom apartment was plenty big enough. We had 1 bathroom and an additional toilet. The staff on check-in were very efficient. The parking was very convenient ($30 fee). The hotel itself is in a terrific location - wasy to walk to lots of attractions. Right next to Chinatown.... More

Have stayed here before and it has always been ok..one bedroom apartment with minimum equipement etc. Good central location. However..watch out if you can't stand the smell of smoke! It is advertised as a non smoking hotel and both our nights were ruined with the smell of smoke. Management did NOTHING!! and no compensation! Very noisy on Saturday night too... More

Stayed overnight following meetings all day and a Friday night out in Melbourne with friends. The hotel was relatively clean, had a good night's sleep. Certainly nothing spectacular, but definitely a good central place to stay, close to great food in Chinatown and some very good night spots. Would definitely stay here again. Buffet breakfast in the nice restaurant was... More

We were quite pleased in all respects with The Mantra on Russell ... EXCEPT for the air conditioning in our two room apartment. No matter how often the reception staff messed wtih the controls at their end, and despite the fact that a maintenance fellow visited the room and assured us it was working properly, we still found very little...

I had a christmas party in the city so rather than trying to get a taxi we thought we'd stay in town. I had booked a rate that included car parking but when I got to the secure parking it was tiny, full, and almost impossible to get back out of. Check in was easy enough, no complaint. The room...

We had moved out of another apartment hotel which was located in Little Bourke St we had booked & pre-paid - it was disgusting & filthy. Mantra on Russell was the closest for us to drag our suitcase to. Having stayed at many Mantras before we felt we would be safe in moving into this hotel. And we weren't disappointed.... More
