“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I stayed with a friend who was travelling interstate. There was more than enough room for both of us. We had a kitchen(ette), comfy bed, then some sitting around near the window. Actually, it's quite big!

We didn't spend a great deal in the hotel, but it's location was superb and meant The Rocks, Darling Harbour and Pitt St Mall were all a very close walk.

I also feel the hotel would be a great place for business travellers to stay.

We stayed at The Mantra for 3 nights and stayed on the 11th floor with a balcony facing George Street, It was great. So close to everything like the rocks and there is a supermarket across the road if you desire to cook in the great small but workable kitchen. Room service was also great ,it was actually cheaper to get room service for dinner than to go out for tea. Would stay there again. I also organized the motel to put roses ,chocolates and champaign in our room for when we arrived WOW there were so many roses and rose petals in the shape of a heart on the big bed, so romantic Also go to Mantra page for cheaper options as they have specials there. Enjoy . I know we did .. cheers

Room Tip: room 1110 was great on George street side

For a family reunion we booked 2 x 2 bedroom apartments for a two night stay. The hotel is in an ideal location such a short walk to The Rocks and views of the Bridge and Opera House.

The hotel itself is nice enough, though we were expecting the 2 bedroom apartments to be a little bigger. We had five guests in each apartment and there wasn't a lot of space, the kitchenette was quite tiny and the bathroom for five people was very small. We weren't there to spend a lot of time in the room, but a bit more space would've been lovely.

The airconditioning in the room was so strange, for the middle of winter, the room was hot and there was no temperature gauge to adjust this so we had windows open to let cool air in. This made for not the best night's sleep.

All in all a good stay, friendly and helpful staff. Would visit again.

Dear Jodie J,

Thankyou for your recent review of Mantra 2 Bond St. Happy to read that you enjoyed your stay. Our two bedroom apartments are approximately 60sqm in size. Our apologies for the inconvenience with the air conditioning. The temperature control panel is located in the wardrobe and should have been explained to you on arrival. Hope you had a wonderful family reunion and we look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in Sydney.

Very creative & innovative styled hotel that's filled with surprises!! Luv the 'small' surprises installed in room. E.g. Was told that there's washer & dryer in room, but when we first enter, we could not find it. Only when one of us wanted to use the bathroom, then viola!! Washer & Dryer inside the bathroom!! Located in the corner that would not occupy any extra space in the bathroom. The basin was designed perfectly too!! The single bed was a surprise too, especially, when we enter the room, all we saw was a big bed but when we walked in, then we saw steps leading to a living room with kitchen & the extra-single bed was there!! Definitely recommend to others especially when you are travelling with 3 pax. The only minus point in the hotel was the house-keeping service. On the first night, we requested for an extra blanket, and was taken away on the next day. Then on the next night, after requesting for the extra blanket again, they left it in the room this time, but rolled away, as if they dun care about image. Before we left the room, we left our own slippers along the table after entrance, but after house-keeping, one of our slippers could be somewhere in the room, while we have to hunt for the other. If this can be improved, it would definitely be a "Home away from a Home"!!

Dear coolman927,

Thankyou for taking the time to comment on your recent stay with us. Enjoyed reading this review as it is a good insight into what facilities we offer in house that many other properties do not.

I have also passed on your feedback to our housekeeping department and appreciate you advising us of the issues you encountered there. We need to ensure there is consistency in our product so thankyou.

I'm happy here. This is a really fantastic location in terms of convenience and the rooms are very comfortable. You can walk to Circular Quay in about 7 minutes, you've got really great access to The Rocks area, getting to Darling Harbour is super simple... everything is right here! I've found the staff to be very friendly, the room service food is good, I've got laundry facilities in my room... it's great.

The hotel is conveniently located next to Wynyard station. The in room kitchen was very useful. Lobby smells funny and I'm not convinced about the restaurant. Hotel seems a little aged but overall a good stay.

Dear ssanders-dalong,

Thankyou for your comments regarding your recent stay with us. Have passed on your feedback to the food and beverage department regarding the restaurant. The smell in the lobby you mentioned maybe from the kitchen. We are in the process of rectifying this and should hopefully have it completed in the not too distant future.

Thankyou

We stayed 5 nights in an Executive Studio room, overlooking Australia Square. Room was ideal. It was more like a small unit, than a typical hotel room. It had a fully equipped modern kitchen; and a washing machine and drier tucked away behind doors in the bathroom (very handy). The location is right on George Street at the Circular Quay end which was good for us (5 min walk to the ferries). There's a Woolworths supermarket about 1 minute away and the nearest train station (Wynyard) was just up the road. Staff were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Facilities were very good. We'll stay there again.
