The location of the hotel is great, within minutes of great cafe's and restaurants. Rooms are very basic in a need of an upgrade, the balcony was Farr too small almost felt unsafe standing on it. However the buffet breakfast was great value for money, with option of eggs to your licking with salmon and hollandaise sauce, yum. Limited parking... More

Have started to use this hotel for business trips. It is a great location, just a short stroll to the river and restaurants. Rooms are clean and well presented with separate bedroom and laundry facilities. Restaurant is quite plain, and empty when I was there. However the food was good and staff friendly.

Very basic apartments, we had a two bedroom with one queen bed & two singles. It had only one bathroom with the shower in the bath. It is quite roomy with a kitchenette & would suit a family holiday. A short walk to the Yarra river, & 15 minutes into central melbourne.

I travel to Melbourne at least once a year from Perth, and have stayed in numerous places throughout the city. Mantra Southbank is the only hotel that I have returned to, and will continue to do so whenever I visit Melbourne in the future. The apartments are spacious, well appointed and contemporary, which gives them a luxurious feel. They are... More

As you know, accommodations for families are very common in Australia (at least it seems more common to me than in other countries), but I have learned during this trip that they lack a standard of conservation of the apartment and of facilities within the apartment, which you can find in a hotel. In this case, Mantra Southbank has several... More

Got a good rate (A$168) through WotIf. Checked through Tripadvisor and took note of the noise issue - asked for a quiet room as my wife is very noise sensitive. Also asked, by e-mail, for early check-in. On arrival the early check-in was just about to go west when a more senior member of staff stepped in and helped out... More

We stayed here on the weekend, and really enjoyed it. We had a one bedroom apartment on the twelfth floor, facing City Road (busy road). If road noise bothers you, then perhaps ask for a room on the other side of the hotel, because even on the twelfth floor, it can be a little noisy in the evening. It didn't... More
