“2nd stay and still fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2011

This is the second time I've stayed here and it's my favorite place to stay in Sydney. Close to everything, staff are fantastic and room was great.

My husband and myself have just returned from a 9 day break at the Mantra on Kent travelling from Perth. We were very impressed by the apartment we were allocated. It was on the 21st floor and we had a view of the harbour. It was very clean and very well equipped for an extended stay. The reception staff were very knowledgeable and very helpful. The apartments are in an excellent position and close to many attractions that Sydney has to offer. It was very close to many restaurants and shopping malls which we made good use of. We will certainly be staying at the Mantra on future visits to Sydney and would not hesitate to recommend it to other travellers.

We were put into a large "apartment" style unit with a large kitchen/dining/lounge room, a separate bedroom and then another "office/work" room (which was ideal to put the cases and other items) with a separate full laundry and bathroom off that. Very comfortable unit with a balcony ( view was just the other side of the street which in the main appeared to be offices etc which are closed in the weekend ) - carpet getting a bit wrinkly in one part, but overall a well equipped and clean unit in a quiet street with convenience stores and some food outlets very close by. A nice quiet unit in Very conveniently located near Darling Harbour.(near the Pyrrmont Bridge and mono rail.) All staff we dealt with were cheerful, very courteous and helpful.l Check in and out were both nice and quick. Would stay there again.
Very trivial matters and raised with staff when we left - there was only one face flannel and no plug for the kitchen sink. I am sure that would have been remedied.

Room Tip: We were on the thrid floor facing the street- nice and quiet. Not sure what the habrour side would b...

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay.
We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and had such positive comments about your apartment and staff.
Our rooms are all double glazed so quiet even on a low floor and higher floors at the back of the building have views of Darling Harbour but unfortunately no balcony.
Our carpet is scheduled to be replaced next year as part of our refurbishment which will lift and brighten the rooms considerably.
Thanks you again for you comments and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

I recently stayed at the Mantra on Kent with some friends. When sent up to our room we were briefed on the layout of our "two bedroom apartment" by the lady on the front desk who made it sound like it was two rooms but that they had joining doors - not a two bedroom apartment but we figured it would be ok anyway. When we reached the rooms we found that in actual fact they were two separate rooms, with two separate keys and no ajoinging door but instead a shared foyer and no door stop s to even hold the doors open. I called down to reception to request the two bedroom apartment we had asked for and was told that they dont actually have two bedroom apartments. This meant that for the weekend get away, one of us had to sleep by themselves the whole time. Even the "one bedroom apartment" doesn't actually have a bedoom, it has doors that are supposed to make a wall. Very misleading. in addition, the sofa we used only had a thin blanket and I woke up cold on several occasions during the night.

The positives were the room service, which was very good, the location, which was excellent and the hotel staff, who were nice. Just dont be fooled by the false advertising - the Mantra on Kent does not have two bedroom apartments!

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay.
We always appreciate receiving constructive comments which help us to maintain and improve our standards as well as meet and exceed guest expectations.
Our 2 dual key 2 bedroom apartments are advertised as such and such a set up is quite common in hotels. Door stops are usually in place to create the 2 bedroom apartment and I apologise this was not actioned prior to your arrival.
The benefit of having the extra doors in place is that it offers privacy if needed, along with offering 2 full kitchens and bathrooms where most hotel 2 bedroom apartments would only offer one. This is one of the main features as to why guests book these style of apartment.
Additional blankets are located in the wardrobe of both rooms and can also be requested from reception at any time and I apologise if these was not adequate bedding in your apartment that night.
We are please that you enjoyed the room service and that the staff offered good service.
Please feel free to contact me directly the next time you are planning to travel to Sydney and I will personally ensure your stay is a comfortable one.

Early October we enjoyed a weeks stay at Mantra on Kent travelling from Brisbane, we found the hotel clean and the staff very friendly. The apartment we had was very quite and the beds comfortable, It is an ideal location as it's close to the city, Darling Harbour and markets also transport, we would be more than happy to recommend Mantra on Kent to family and friends and will stay there again when next visiting Sydney. I have also stayed at two other of the Mantra groups properties on the Gold coast and was very happy with both apartments

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.
