“Absolutely Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Very large apartment style room which was really well equipped - even a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher - plus the detergents as well.

Fantastic base for a stay in this wonderful city, located only 10 minutes from Circular Quay. Just what you need for a city stay as there is space to relax when tired.

I would not stay anywhere else.

Only problem was chargeable wifi in the room - which didn't seem to work anyway but free wifi was offered in the reception area.

We have just returned home from staying 6 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment on level 10. 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 6,5,& 3) This is the first trip we have taken the kids to Sydney and we found the Mantra to be in a great location. Woolies accross the road to stock up on snacks & light meals, a short walk to almost anywhere. Kids loved the rooftop pool (which is heated) and we spent most early evenings up there after a day exploring the city.
My only gripes would be that the kitchen needed a few more pots (try to cook dinner for 5 in a small pot and 1 frying pan.. not easy - also no oven trays) The whole idea of a 2 bedroom apartment is to make a family holiday a little more affordable rather than constantly eating out. Bathroom is small and does flood. The only other thing would be - ABC Kids as a TV station would be good. Disney kids is not good for small kids, and parents need time to get organised for the day! To know they are watching something more age appropriate while they were waiting would be good.
Other than that, hotel staff we friendly & helpful. Rooms serviced daily, which surprised me as normally in other apartments we have stayed at they normally do every 2 or 3rd day. The housekeeping did a great job, and left us new sachets of dishwashing/laundry powder everyday (again another service we dont normally get in apartments).
We had a George Street facing room. Some times it was abit noisy, but thats part of being in a city! Beds & pillows were super comfy tho :-)
We would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for highest floor available

A reasonable city centre hotel but can be noisy. Our stay seemed to coincide with repeated fire service night visits to Australia square next door and a very loud motor bike doing a city centre circuit all night.
Rooms good and one of the few places to get 2 bedroom apartment style acommodation in the centre of the city.

Clean & comfortable room with all we needed. Unfortunately the noise from the street is very loud. Perhaps we picked the wrong day to stay here but the roadworks started in the street below at 11pm and continued throughout the night. Not the restful night sleep we needed. After reading others reviews I read that it was not just this night. I wouldnt stay here until they get double glazing on their windows or perhaps at a much cheaper rate. The pool is nice though.

Room Tip: The higher up you go the less noise.

With an early arrival (0830am) after a 22 hour flight we received a shot of adrenalin when we were met by the very pleasant General Manager Michael, who informed us that he was pleased to be able to meet our request for an upper floor (14 ) but explained that the room wouldn't be ready for a few hours ( understandable ). He stored our luggage, offered us facilities to freshen up, gave us a few tips about the area and provided us with a couple of well received bottles of cold water.

When we checked in a few hours later, we were very pleased with the accommodation. The apartment had a split level design separating the living and sleeping areas, and had everything we expected. We stayed 10 nights at the Mantra but were away from home for a month so the washing machine and tumble dryer were very welcome.

The apartment was well maintained and housekeeping was prompt and carried out well during our stay.

The rooftop pool is a pleasant place to cool down and although the adjacent gym is useful, anyone wanting to exercise off Sydney's fantastic food scene might prefer a spin around the Botanic Gardens which are only a 5 minute jog away. The location of the apartments is fantastic - apart from the Botanic Gardens, Circular Quay, Wynyard Station and the Rocks are 5 minutes walk away. 10 minutes to the Opera House and Martin Place ( for trains to Bondi Junction ). Another 5 minutes will take you to Pitt Street Mall, Westfield and the QVB for shopping or in the other direction to King Street Wharf with Darling Harbour just beyond that. In addition, all the George Street busses are on your doorstep. Those looking for pre cruise accommodation might be interested that we were able to walk with our luggage to the Overseas Passenger Terminal in 10 minutes.

And of course, being in the CBD, there is no shortage of places to stock up on food if you prefer to eat in e.g. The food court in Australia Court opposite or the supermarket below Wynyard station. And for those little extras there is a well stocked pharmacy across the road.

We didn't use the cafe on the ground floor but it looked quite popular. Our only negative comment - and this is common throughout Sydney, is that there is no free WiFi and the house package is not cheap. The only free WiFi we found in Sydney was at McDonalds and the Davy Jones store at Westfield. Come on Sydney. It's a service not a money maker.

We had done a lot of homework before choosing Mantra and it fully met our expectations.

Room Tip: George Street is busy and noisy but if you ask for an upper floor you won't notice it. I suspect...

Most probably the best accommodation we have ever stayed in but there were a lot of little things that should have been better. Like the frying pan was dirty (greasy) kitchen floor was not cleaned properly and dirty streaks down the cupboard doors. There was no plug for kitchen sink. Great location and staff were helpful and friendly
