I've stayed in other Mantra apartments before and this one didn't disappoint, located on busy City Rd directly behind the Art centre and one street back from Southbank, it's a good spot to enjoy the eateries and night life of southbank or a short 10 minute walk over to Flinders st, central to go to the Arts centre or even...

Apartment has everything one can expect and is very neat and tidy. It is just 5 minutes walk to Yarra river, flinders street and Swanton street. They have... More

Initially booked this accommodation for the purposes of having a convenient place to sleep while my partner and I celebrated our anniversary. We didn't realize our room would basically be an apartment decked out with a lounge room, kitchen and dining area and cutlery and glasses. We also got a free upgrade to a spa room so we had the...

I stayed at the Mantra Southbank on Friday and Saturday night in a one bedroom apartment, 4 adults in total. I booked the Mantra as a mystery hotel through Wotif and was allocated the 1 bedroom apartment which really wasn't large enough. This was not the Mantra's fault and they were incredibly accommodating and the front desk staff throughout our... More

Everything about the hotel was just ok . Room, staff, facilities. For the same price, you could find a better hotel elsewhere. I personally prefer the " Mantra on the Park " Better rooms, better location and really great staff .

We chose a two bedroom unit with kitchenette on the sixth floor. It was well laid out with generous space. Could have benefited from larger tv and a bluray player though. The kitchen is tired, with dirty saucepans, marked walls and an ancient microwave. Road noise was ok given the busy street outside, and proximity to South bank a bonus.

It has been many years since I stayed in and reviewed the Mantra. Not too much has really changed in the 4 years since I last stayed here. The rooms are getting a bit tired and are in need of a spruce up. The concept is really nice – 1-bedroom apartments with living area and fully functional kitchen – very... More

Great staff and location. Rooms have a lot of road noise. Breakfast fantastic. Dinner is awesome. Try the steak. Rooms clean and tidy and large. The carpark is tight if u have a large car. The hotel is located central and well maintained. This will be our new first call in town.

We needed somewhere close to the Australian Ballet School for a week. The Mantra at Southbank was perfect. Close to so many cafes and restaurants at Southbank. The staff were extremely friendly and nothing we asked for was a bother. The heated pool was a bonus at the end of the day and although the sauna wasn't working the gym... More

A client has booked me in here and my expectations weren't particularly high, so I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious two bedroom fully self contained apartment which I thought was excellent value for money. Sixth floor, which did unfortunately mean closed curtains as my windows were directly looking at the office block across the road. Room service breakfast was... More
