This hotel was within an easy walking distance to Rod Lava Arena and Federation Square. The only drawback is you can hear the trains early in the morning. I would stay here again as it is so convenient to eating places, galleries, concerts and public transport.The Beds were very comfortable.

In my personal opinion I can’t think of many negative comments concerning this hotel. When I booked it, all I was looking for was a hotel, with a pool, that was clean, near to the CBD and commutable to Albert Park for the Grand Prix and that is exactly what I got. PROS :-) Friendly staff, quick check-in and very... More

I get the impression that every 5 or 10 years, the couple of major hotel chains seem to change hands. I suppose that's why this hotel seemed exactly like many I have stayed in with my job, in many cities over many years. I often had to have a quick look at their letterhead or something to see if it... More

Hi el_gallo_azul, Thanks for your review. In regards to the internet the price you chose actually works out to just above $4.00 a day, which is very competitive when it comes to hotels. I'm sorry the speed was not up to your expectation. I hope to see you at a Mantra property again soon. Nathan Copsey General Manager More

Having read reviews on here before booking I asked for room away from train and elevators which we got BUT rooms are very close together and doors squeak. We heard reception doorbell going off all night. Beds very lumpy and pillows hard. Everyone congregated out front of hotel to smoke and it drifted straight up to our open window and... More

The rooms we had were clean, it was an apartment, good facilities, comfy bed, quiet at night, and only 2Km walk to city or free trams. There is a gym and pool if you want that. If you are there Sunday and Monday they don't provide a restaurant, but will give you details where you could go, or for a... More

Pricey! For stuff all! The room me and a mate had was terrible! Asked for two seperate beds, got a double! Cant exactly chill out in the room either, no couch or anything of that matter and the bed was uncomfortable! Worst parking set up I have ever seen! I would give it 0 stars if I could have.

Hi Zach Fm Thanks for your review. Prices are based on demand and it has been a busy couple of weeks in Melbourne. Not all of our rooms have couches, should you want one next time please speak to our staff about upgrading to a larger room. In regards to Car Parking we are structurally limited to what we can...

I was looking forward to my overnight stay here based on the reviews on tripadvisor. While the front desk staff were all lovely, my room was old and tiny and the room service breakfast exceptionally disappointing. The employee who brought the tray to my room was unable to smile, offer a good morning, or even explain that cutlery, sugar and... More

Hi TassieFamilyOf5, Thanks for your feedback. I am sorry to hear your request wasn't fulfilled. Unfortunately due to allocations sometime this isn't possible.

Hi Joshua H, Thanks for your review. While we are located just outside of the CBD it can be reached on foot in about 5-7 minutes, either via Wellington Pde or the amazing footbridge located by the MCG. I'm sorry about the confusion with minibar, I will ensure our procedures are checked and that doesn't happen again. Many Thanks Nathan... More
