We stayed at the Mantra in a one bedroom apartment for 3 nights and loved it. It was perfect. Right in the middle of the city, China Town and restaurants and shops at the door, and a view from the balcony on the 16th floor over all of Melbourne. Rather than a small hotel room with windows that don't open, we had a balcony with large glass doors in the living room and large windows in the bedroom that opened if you wished for fresh air. The air conditioning was easily adjustable for whatever change of temperature Melbourne had to offer.The bedroom was comfortable, the lounge and dining room enabled us to spread out and watch TV. The kitchen had everything you needed to prepare food/make tea or coffee if you wanted to. Bathroom is large, and the apartment has a washing machine, dryer and iron and ironing board. It was cleaned each day and the towels and shampoos etc were renewed each day. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful and it was the most comfortable and spacious stay we have had in Melbourne and fantastic value for what we paid. I can hardly wait to go back..if I can get the same deal.
