This hotel is in an excellent location if you want access to restaurants in Chinatown and great shopping close by. The hotel facilities are lovely and the pool was a favourite with my daughter. Excellent staff, delicious breakfast and lovely rooms.

We took a break for our anniversary, booked this property for the night, great price and perfect room, clean, well presented, awesome comfortable bed and the pillows were perfect (it's a bit hit and miss with pillows at times but these were the best!) The staff were friendly and helpful on arrival and departure and only too happy to help. The room was huge and super clean, very impressed and would stay again. Thanks Mantra!

The hotel itself is fantastic, we had the 1-bedroom apartment and it was so spacious and looked just like how it did in pictures! Great location, friendly desk staff at check-in, we had a really great time. The bed was comfy, and the room was really nice. We took advantage of the City of Melbourne FOMO deal, which included late checkout. This was confirmed by the staff member who helped us out at check-in, and was written in my confirmation email and on the website when I made my booking. However, on our last day, staff called us from the front desk to the room asking when we planned on leaving. I said we had late checkout as a part of our package, and then the staff member came up to the room to look at my confirmation email and still doubted my late checkout. We did have a great stay, but this experience was really disappointing. If your hotel is going to offer a deal then staff members need to be informed of what is included. At least they need to have that information accessible to them before questioning guests about the validity of their booking.

Dear elisek712, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Mantra on Russell Melbourne. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. In regards to the late checkout I think this is more of an issue with the displaying of the check out time on our system which resulted in the 12pm check out not showing properly resulting in you receiving a phone call. Sincere apologies for this. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Aaron Glenn

Great location, room feels very dated and poorly lit. The aircon system is centrally controlled and therefore can’t be controlled in the room. The room was very hot, noisy and smelly. However the bed was very comfortable. Overall an average stay.

Dear Diddy25, Firstly thank you for your review and I note I have also responded to your hotel direct review. Apologies that your experience had elements that were less than satisfactory. In regards to our air conditioning this is a brand new system that is 3 years old and for environmental purposes it remains on an auto function so if guests wish to turn from cold to hot then yes the front desk will require contacting in order to assist. Again many thanks for sharing. Regards, Aaron
