“Loved our stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

We stayed 11 days and felt like home. The staff was great and very helpful. the room was nicely appointed and very clean. the small kitchenette helped us save money on dining out. and the washer/dryer was great. I will stay here again if i ever get back to Sydney.

Room Tip: we were on the 24th floor, corner unit. it had a bit of a view, Beds were screened off so it felt mo...

My first room, a studio, had with no desk, no table to work (or eat) and no space. Whilst it had a pleasant appearance it was completely useless for a business traveller. I'm not sure why you want to cook anything when there is no room to eat it!

They upgraded me to a one-bed deluxe apartment which was actually one slightly bigger room with a couple of sliding doors to delineate the bed area but at least it came with a small square table and four chairs.

The staff were pleasant and helpful and the property was well located but I will probably look elsewhere next time - or at least make sure the room has a working area.

The moment we entered our room its was like...WOW! The room was very nice and welcoming and felt like an instant getaway. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating. Ever since that weekend away, we have gone on to stay at the Mantra on little Bourke in Melbourne and also Mantra Legends in Surfers Paradise. The Mantra hotels all across Australia are most definitely recommendable, because they will go the extra mile to make you feel special and welcome. The Mantra hotel is always reliable, and sure to make your holiday stay a memory you will speak highly of.

Room Tip: You can never go room with a deluxe studio. They are very spacious.

The friendliest staff I have encountered for some time are the first impression when arriving at the hotel. The rooms have recently been refurbished and are very comfortable.

Great place to stay for the money.

Wow! what a great central place to stay in Sydney. It was so easy to catch a train from the airport to Townhall station then walk to the Mantra. Close to St Andrews House and Australian Red Cross along with the Queen Vic building where one can walk through the underground shopping arcades into central Sydney and Myers and Pitt Street. The oven and hot plates, washing machine and dryer along with the wonderful view of the church out my window made this self contained accommodation a wonderful choice. Attention to detail and friendly service was refreshing. this comment comes from an owner of two four and a half star boutique accommodation self contained cottages in Albury. Well done Mantra staff.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter"

My wife chose the Mantra on Kent after extensive research. We wanted a comfortable base with two bedrooms from which we could explore Sydney on foot - the Mantra proved to be the perfect choice for this. The apartment style accommodation with kitchenette and laundry facilities were an added bonus.

We could easily explore Darling Harbour, the main shopping areas, Chinatown, The Rocks and Circular Key are all within easy reach. The view from the hotel is a mixture of Darling Harbour, office buildings and apartment blocks. We followed the Tripadvisor advice and asked for a high floor (27th - the top floor) and we were pleased we did.

The staff were helpful, attentive and the rooms were serviced efficiently every day. The price at USD 500 per day was high but probably fair for the quality of the accommodation and the location of The Mantra. Also we found most things in Sydney to be expensive because of the high AUD exchange rate.

We did not eat in the hotel's restaurant. For breakfast we tried Plato's and Bona Fides cafes - both within two minutes walk and both served a great breakfast. For dinner there are plenty of dining choices around Darling Harbour.

We would stay at the Mantra on Kent again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor with harbour view

Overlooking Darling Harbour from the twentieth floor, the accommodation is exquisite. The folks at the front desk are some of the loveliest people in town. Great place to rest up after a three month cruise!
