Mantra on Kent
Ranked #76 of 181 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed January 26, 2013

My husband and I stayed here from 29th December 2012 - 3rd January 2013 as we were in Sydney for New Year. Having not visitied Sydney before we wanted to ensure we stayed in a central location and I must say that this was perfect.
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment and the size of the room was fantastic. The bedroom was large as was the bathroom and there was a good size kitchen with all required applicances should you with to eat in.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and were more than happy to help advise on public transport and attrations.
Very close to Darling Harbour, China Town and a 20 minutes stroll to Circular Quay and Sydney Harbour. There are lots and lots of eateries and restaurants nearby from take-away pizza and McDonalds to sit in restaurants and Cafes.
This is also a stones throw from World Square shopping centre- everything you could need is on your doorstep.
I would definately stay again when we nxt return to Sydney.

We stayed here in a one bedroom apartment and grabbed it on a special rate so only paid $150 for the night, and was very impressed! Check in and out very smooth, the rooms are a great size and have all the amenities you need and completely self contained.
We were going to a hens party in Darling Harbour so it was the perfect location, just a walk down the hill to get there, and a stumble back up the hill to get home!
The bed was very comfy, and I loved the bath gel, it smelled lovely!!
Definitely recommended

Located walking distance from Darling Harbor as well as shopping along George St and Chinatown, this hotel is centrally located for tourists on foot. The room decor and lobby has a boutique hotel feel. Room was very spacious and had a full kitchen. Triangle-shaped tub has enough space for a two-person bubble bath. Wi-Fi available for charge.

One bedroom deluxe apartment, lovely view. Clean, spacious and everything we needed in a holiday apartment. Great location with easy, easy access to Darling Harbour. Convenient to buses, shopping and supermarkets for supplies. Lovely clean, comfy pillows and beds.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high as possible with harbour view

We were on a road trip with an infant and had so much stuff. Staff couldn't have been more helpful with unloading and loading the car! It made a huge difference to our stay and is noteworthy as a competitor's hotel in Melbourne was the exact opposite. The room was great value and had a laundry in the bathroom. Another fantastic thing when on a roadtrip with a child :) Fabulous location and excellent price!

I could not believe how close we were to EVERYTHING! This hotel was perfect! Not only was the street we were on very quiet, but we could walk to all of the bars/clubs/restaurants/shops/harbor/transportation in less than 5 minutes. We had a 1 bedroom apartment on the 25th floor and it was amazing! It came with a huge jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, a washer/dryer, and a full kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and the views from every window in the room were gorgeous!

The only issue I have is the Wifi is not free, but if you go to the Westfield mall in the Queen Victoria building (maybe a 3 minute walk) you can get free Wifi access.

I loved this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Spent 5 days in a one bedroom deluxe on the 9th floor.
We had a small balcony and the apartment had everything you needed. A real bonus was the room was serviced every day, which in most apartments you don’t get service at all. The A/C was freezing which was great as one day it was 43.
Their cafe had a breakfast buffet special which was great value for $15, (great mushrooms). The location is 5 minutes maybe less to the Town Hall train station, which from the airport took about 20 minutes, it cost $16, but just so convenient.
They Pyrmont footbridge over Darling Harbour empties into Kent Street and takes 1 minute to walk to it. Myers is about 3 minutes walk.
In summary: the best location, very neat and tidy, room service was really good, reception would do anything to help you, breakfast was excellent, overall great value for money.
We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't forget the location is in the CBD so you are surrounded by offices and high rises. We were...
