We stayed here for three days having just flown in to Perth from the UK. We arrived at 3am, which was no problem and we were expected. The room was substantial with seating and kitchenette area, tea coffee and milk provided, a good sized bathroom, and a large and very comfortable bed. The room was clean, and serviced every day with tea etc replenished. The Mantra is located in the CBD, it is close to shops and there are places to eat nearby, but we ate in the restaurant one night, and the food was very good. There is a bar as well, the staff are friendly and helpful, although at times we felt there could be more staff in the bar. It seems that Qantas air crew use the Mantra for stopovers, and one evening when we were there a large crowd of them took over the bar completely which was a bit annoying. The only real problem is that the building gets very hot. Not a problem in the corridors and lobbies by the lifts, but the bedrooms are cooled by air conditioning units, we found ours to be awkward to operate or maybe we just didn't understand the instructions, but nevertheless it was extremely noisy all night. Personally I would have preferred to have the windows open and no air conditioning, but the windows didn't open. It was in the upper thirties all day, but much cooler at night. Our booking didn't include breakfast, so I am unable to comment, but it was expensive, and we preferred to go down the street for breakfast al fresco. We would probably choose to stay here again.
