The Mantra is centrally located and easy access to the Esplanade. If you're thinking of catching a cruise, it's walking distance to the port terminal. If you want to hit the night life bars, entertainment are at your door step.

Fantastic location, central to everything and great views. Problem is that the rooms are getting old and tired. Little bit disappointing as i used to stay there regularly. The staff are very friendly and only too happy to help.
