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

Maybe another title of this review should be "You get what you pay for". Stayed here with the wife and kids during school holidays. Good location, it is an easy to walk to Crown, Southbank and the City. What works, the room was a decent size and pretty clean, but I think with 2 bedroom apartments a second TV is... More

Our family stayed on the 13th floor in a 2 bedroom apartment. Great furnishings, huge space, fantastic layout. Staff were all friendly and professional and the location was very convenient to walk around the sights of Melbourne. The only problem was the noise. I'd read earlier reviews and requested a quieter room which they obliged. Unfortunately the trucks hammering down... More

The hotel was booked online and we were in for a real surprise. The location was a short stroll to the river and the buzz of Southbank, access to the tram and a short stroll into the city. The room had a kitchenette, beautiful spacious bathroom, large bathroom and liveable lounge dining area. The décor was modern and fresh. The... More

The location of the hotel was fantastic. Just a short walk from all of Melbourne has to offer. Rooms were very clean and spacious. The staff at check-in were professional and friendly. The shower was in the bathtub and very high from floor level ( we estimated 50 cm). There was a grip bar, however there was also a glass... More

Located right across the road from Langham hotel Southbank, the Mantra Southbank is just 10 mins walk to Flinders station, making it smack in a central location. Apartment is large enough to fit 2 pax very comfortably; and does not look super modern or super old- decently clean. Only the bathroom looks a bit dated; and could do with a... More

A great overnight in a 2 bedroom corner apartment. Plenty of space, clean, very comfy beds and good kitchen facilities. A bit noisy being right on city road but that didn't bother us. The kids thought it was more exciting than a distraction. Close/walking distance to south bank precinct, aquarium, fed square etc. We were able to check I a... More

Just a short stroll over the Yarra to the City Centre. Clean comfortable & well priced. Great buffet breakfast & Bar to indulge before our night out. Staff helpful & friendly & as it was Melbourne Cup time it must have been hell but they always had a smile.
