“Value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I stayed here for 5 nights in March 2013. We picked the Mantra because of its relatively central location, and its reasonably cheap price. I had no idea what to expect when we got there but given the price was $200 per night (on the lower end of the scale) I expected a basic room. Instead, the room was absolutely fantastic. We had a double queen room and it was massive. Inside the room is also a kitchenette, a large couch/sitting area with its own TV. I was very impressed. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom tidy. No complaints at all.

I spent just about 6 hours sleeping at this place, checking in at about midnight and checking out at about6 in the morning but I was happy my colleagues had booked me here. The room was an apartment and just huge. The bed very comfortable, the shower and toileteries well appointed. Even the kitchen and sitting areas were well designed and decorated with taste. I wished i could enjoy a bit fuller sleep in this wonderfully large room.

We stayed for two nights in February. As a tourist Location was a little far away from the city hub, next time would stay somewhere closer. Housekeeping service was not good. Did not get fresh towels the second day, even though we left our dirty towels in the bathtub and so left with wet smelly towels to use on the second night. Beds didn't get made first time, second time they were made but looked as though they were made by a two year old. Not to be a wringer but really expect better than this when staying in a hotel. Also be warned, usually one would expect tea and coffee to be complimentary, it's not. Overall not really a stay to rave about.

Good location & spacious. The staff were extremely helpful. We stayed for 9 days. Make sure you asked to have the bed sheets changed if you plan to stay for a few days, there's bed bugs.
Can't adjust room temperature, air conditioning is not quite cold enough on a hot day.

Was maybe slightly less than 4 as it could use a quick refresh but great location and friendly staff. The rooms are nice, the gym was like a sauna and could use an AC upgrade. The restaurant was also quite nice and had some tasty food - although go outside to eat, don't stay at your hotel! Decent value for the city, time of year and location.

Fabulous connected apartments. Spotless and more than comfortable. User friendly open plan kitchen and living space. Separate enormous bathroom. Great for any stay in Melbourne. Close to public transport, shopping and restaurants.

First time I have stayed at the complex the staff were very welcoming on arrival. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment very spacious but still only one bathroom. The air conditioning didn't work very well it is ducted but got extremely hot through the night and you can't open any of the windows. The pressure in the shower was dreadful and in the morning you basically had the hot tap on only as the hot water wasn't very hot. The location is brilliant. On checking out they wanted me to pay $350.00 more than I was quoted thank goodness I had the paperwork.
