The Mantra is okay. The rooms are clean and the service was fine, but the shower on the hottest setting was barely warm, the parking was overpriced and I have a huge pet peeve with hotels that try to charge customers for Wifi. Many country hotels offer free wifi, yet the city lags behind, attempting to make a greater profit... More

Situated within walking distance of Melbourne's Southbank, Flinders Street Station, and the Melbourne CBD this hotel is convenient for both the tourist and business traveller. The rooms are spacious, modern, and clean. The jet bath was a bonus and a great way to unwind after a long day. The views from the pool are are simply stunning.

We stayed at the Mantra as 2 couples for one night. The corner room has a great view of the arts centre and the kitchen/lounge room is great. We were on the 5th floor which still let in a lot of road noise from City Road and the trucks going past. One of our party was a light sleeper and... More
