“Great service and facilities in the perfect location”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

I stayed with friends for one night in a 2 bedroom apartment and wished we had stayed longer. We were very pleasantly surprised with the apartment - each room had its own separate kitchen, bathroom and lounge area. Rooms were spotless and very spacious and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Only downsides were the showers which took quite a while to heat up and the air conditioning in one room that struggled to heat up. Location is perfect, just a short walk away from Darling Harbour, dining, shopping and transport. Would definitely recommend and return for another visit.

Dear Monika D,

Thank you for your recent positive post.

Our 2 bedroom apartments are very popular as they do give the extra space of 2 apartments, along with the additional bathroom and kitchen and privacy if needed.

Thank you for bringing the hot water delay to our attention. I have had maintenance investigate and although have not found any issues, will keep an eye on it in the future.

I am pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind regards,

Daniel Russell

Wow - how easy! I used the on- line assistance to find the best package deal. As a result I received instant feedback. Not only did we get a good accomodation deal with breakfast but also Easter show tickets as well. As usual, a great holiday stay with the Mantra group! The staff were very friendly and exceptionally helpful.

I was attending an expo at Darling Harbour and this hotel was in a perfect location. A ten minute walk to Darling Harbour but still in the action of the CBD. I didn't try the bar or restaurant but this was because they seemed to lack atmosphere. Many great places nearby where you can experience what Sydney is all about. The room had everything you would want, only negatives where there was no TV in the bedroom and no free Internet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high as possible

Dear PJMAUNDER,

Thank you for your post of Mantra on Kent.

We do have the luxury of being so close to The Convention Centre and Darling Harbour, yet still in the centre of the CBD and within walking distance to most attractions.

We are currently having a refurbishment of all apartments, including all carpet, paint, furniture and electrical such as TV's.

The lobby and restaurant will also be refurbished to add some more atmosphere to the outlets.

Thank you again and we hope to see you back at mantra on Kent soon.

Kind regards,

Staff were very helpful. Great to have an apartment so centrally located in the CBD. Nice to have a separate bedroom but there's no tv in the bedroom and the tv in the living room was old. There's no gym in the building but they will organise passes for you elsewhere.

These apartments are in an excellent location between the QVB and Darling Harbour. It is a high building in a fairly quiet street for central Sydney, so noise is not a problem. The apartments are basic but with comfortable beds and most of the essentials, including washing machine and tumble drier (even detergent was provided). The staff were extremely helpful. There is a cafe downstairs and room-service available but with Darling Harbour and Westfield Shopping Centre both 5 minutes away, there are plenty of eateries. Woolworth's supermarket is about 10 minutes away on foot, near Town Hall. There was no balcony or view but if you are going to spend most of your time out and about, Mantra on Kent is ideal at a competitive price.

Room Tip: Rooms at back may have a better view. Higher rooms may be quieter.

Dear BobGloucester,

Thank you for your positive comments of Mantra on Kent.

Our location is one of our best features, but the ability to be self catering and have shops and food outlets so close is also a big plus.

Its great to hear that you feel that the staff were extremely helpful and that you enjoyed your stay.

We do actually have 25 apartments that have balconies and can be requested when booking 1 bedroom deluxe apartments.

Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to Mantra on kent in the near future.

Mantra on Kent "did" our 12-days stay in Sydney! Our room was very pleasant with cleaning every day except one because of the the Easter. Pluss for washing machine and dryer.
The straff was very nice, especially Josie, who really was a wonderful receptionist :)
The location was excellent: In walking distance to Darling Harbour, Sydnwy Aquarium, Chinatown, Chinese Garden, Paddys Market, Westfield, Sydney Tower Eye and even Sydney Operahouse and Royal Botanic Garden.
The only thing we did not like was that the internet access was too expensive. This should have been free/or at much less cost, especially because of our need for both internet booking of tours/events and also online access to our flights etc.

Dear Loekken,

Thank you for your recent review of Mantra on Kent.

I am pleased to see that you enjoyed your 12 day stay with us and got to see so many of the attractions Sydney has to offer, all quite close to the hotel.

Josie has seen your review and its always great to hear specific good comments of one of the team.

Unfortunately internet charges in Australian hotels are still common, unlike the rest of the world but we hope to offer a free internet service in the near future as we appreciate this is a necessity these days.

Thank you again for your review and we hope to see you back in Sydney in the near future.
