Beautiful modern decor, clean and comfortable, great amenities with heated pool, spa and gym, onsite restaurant, room with kitchenette and balcony, friendly and helpful staff, well positioned in Chinatown and close to the CBD. You could not ask for more at this price point. Fantastic value for money.

The TV was annoying as we couldn't plug our USB into the back of the tv and watch our own shows. You could only order movies by paying. With The price you pay per night you shouldnt impose restrictions on tv. We have stayed at cheaper places and could play movies and songs!also very noisy. Could hear street noise all...

Firsts family holiday with a little one is always going to be nerve racking. Loved having room service for those tiring days. It was a good location as we wanted things conveniently near us. I wish that vacuuming was done on a daily basis as I had a toddler. Wished they had provided extra towels for my son as I...

This is one of a number of hotels I have used during my business trips to Melbourne. I particularly wanted a property central to Melbourne for a change. I was very happy with the location and quality of the room. I will definitely be staying there again in the future.

Hotel is located in the heart of chinatown and a short walk to Collins St for those that like to shop hard and like the up end for their shopping experience. I found the Service at Check to be extremely poor, I had to wait over an Hour before I could be checked in. Once I had checked in I...

Great location to Chinatown and shopping including Bourke Street Mall, QV, and Melb Central...perfect if you have shopping on your to do list. Heaps of restaurants within walking distance. Our room had a balcony which is great for getting some fresh air into the room, big advantage. Staff are very friendly also.

Amazed there was no free wifi for an upmarket hotel in a modern city. Foyer drink station was always out of fresh cups. Even on one of the highest levels, there was a lot of street noise. Rooms were very well appointed and clean and modern.

Booked in for a night and a room was available on our arrival which was a little early. We were upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment. Rooms are clean and tidy. Wifi is $25 a day and I think this is outrageous. Breakfast was average and a 'real' coffee is extra. Go out and find breakfast in any of the...

Had to travel to Melbourne for 2 nights staying at this hotel and was really impressed. The beds were so, so comfortable, room was spotless, customer service was great at the front counter and you know I really couldn't fault the hotel. Melbourne even turned on good weather, yep can't leave one negative comment. Well done Mantra on Russell!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
