“Very well located”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

This hotel is very well situated, close to everything in the city center (Darling Harbour, Convention Center, Sky Tower, Fish Market, etc). The ratio quality /price is very good also. Rooms are pleasant and quiet, beds are comfortable. Breakfast very pleasant as well. A good choice to visit Sydney if you have no rental car.

We recently stayed at the Mantra on Kent for an extended weekend trip to Sydney from Perth staying for 5 nights. We had our 2 year old son with us and found the hotel & staff to be extremely family friendly, clean and super helpful. The location is perfect for sightseeing & shopping and the staff are more than happy to order a taxi if your destination is further away. The apartment was a good size and had all the requirements needed for travelling with a small child. We would definetley recommend the Mantra on Kent to family & friends and will stay there again on our next trip to Sydney. We will also look out for the Mantra group in other places we may visit.

We were celebrating my sons birthday in Sydney, and decided to stay overnight. Mantra on Kent is a great location and such friendly staff. On check-in they told us about saving money on the car park which is right next door. All requests were actioned straight away. The breakfast deal is well worth the $15 pre paid. With two big strong boys to keep fed, they enjoyed going up to the hot and cold buffet numerous times. We will be planning to go to Sydney again before Xmas and make sure we stay at Kent Street. Thank you for making us feel welcome.

My husbund and I stayed here December 2010, it was the start of our honeymoon and the start of a month long trip to Australia.

The apartment was in a great location, just a 5 minute walk to Darling Harbour which is great for restaurants in the evening.

The apartment was a really good size and you had your own washing machine and tumbledrier as well as a fully equipped Kitchen.

The staff were really helpful, I lost my key for my padlock on my suitcase and one of the members of staff came up to our apartment with a hacksaw.

I would definately stay here again and it was great to have an apartment in Sydney as meant you could prepare and have food in the apartment rather then eating everything out which saved us a lot of money.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and loved my studio apartment. I had beautiful views of the harbour, was walking distance to the CBD in Sydney. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I'm going to visit this establishment again.

Stayed here for a few days while attending a conference at the Sheraton darling harbor. Studio room was more than adequate. Large room and good basic cooking facilities. Cleanliness was top rate. Good linen. Bed was comfy enough but probably should be replaced soon. Staff were helpful and $15 breakfast was easy and affordable. Good location. Easy Walk to darling Barbour and city. Would definitely stay here again

Stayed 8 nights. Liked that the lower level apartments had a balcony. Rooms need an upgrade, new stylish furniture and NEW blankets & sheets. Service was fine. Wifi expensive but seems to be the status quo in Oz. Did not get around to eating in the restaurant. Easy walk to mono rail or Town hall train station under QVB Building. Great central location for cbd and Darling harbour.
