The fact that I was forced into moving from a luxury hotel to this one due to it being fully booked didn't play in favor of Mantra for sure :) More objectively, the hotel has just what you need on a quick business trip but could do with more helpful front desk employees.

3 pax - stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 12th floor, facing City Road. The apartment was comfortable and well maintained. As others have mentioned, being on the City Road side of the building exposes you to traffic noise at all hours - if you're a light sleeper either pack earplugs or ask for a... More

The Mantra is in a great location for visiting central Melbourne, the Southbank and Convention Centre area as well as the sporting venues. We easily walked to AAMI park for a concert from the Mantra. We had booked a 1 bedroom apartment with twin beds so I could share with my daughter. The apartment is well laid out with a... More

Centrally located within walking distance to the city and sporting areas. The room service needs more attention to detail - not enough eating utensils, tea & coffee not replenished fully each day. On the up side are the kitchen and laundry facilities provided so it can be your home away from home. Just not quite there for 4.5 stars.

The manta sits behind all this of the attractions on Southbank. It is also very close to st kilda road and federation square. I had a small one bedroom apartment. It had everything in it you could need for a short or long term stay.

Had a one bedroom studio and couldn't fault it. We stayed for one night..the indoor pool is great with lovely city views. Breakfast was a bit standard but the rest was lovely. Had a decent sized balcony with views, couldn't hear any traffic noise from our level.

The staff were lovely, the room was clean and spacious and the location was spot on. But all of these things were let down by the incredibly thin walls, doors and windows. We could hear people in adjacent rooms, kids running up and down the hallways, traffic at all hours, and garbage trucks emptying what seemed like infinite bins full... More

Stayed at the mantra southbank for 7 nights over the new year. The hotel was in a good location for the city and southbank and perfect location for getting the free trams. The room was 2 bedroom and did us fine, we only used the spire resturant for nye but you need to see the review for this. A great... More

Clean, comfortable & contemporary with all the modern conveniences at your fingertips, these apartments are excellently located right on SouthBank for all the cultural pursuits of Theatre, Opera, Ballet, National Art Gallery, National Museum & MSO. Excellent wining & dining is also available at Southbank brasseries just a stone's throw away. Mantra Southbank is also a short walk (10 mins)... More

Great apartment with all that you need, kitchen laundry, ironing, etc. I stayed in a 1 bedroom. Bed was super comfy and had a great view out to the arts centre and botanical gardens. Quiet sleep. The staff were very friendly and even offered me a nice complimentary cheese platter (they knew I was travelling on business). South Melbourne has... More
