I have been staying at this hotel for over 30 years and I love it. The hotel is on Exhibition Street which is an easy walk to the city. In one direction there is the wonderful Italian restaurants of Carlton and in the other is China Town and a dazzling choice of Asian cuisine. And don't forget the superb Greek restaurants on Lonsdale Street. All within easy walking distance. Should you want to go further afield, then it is on the free city circle tram route which makes exploring Melbourne really easy - and fun - because it's such a wonderful city to visit. Mantra is an apartment style hotel and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff are just great and nothing is too much trouble. I love this hotel and Melbourne. I'm looking forward to another 30 years.

Room Tip: I don't think it matters. I've never been disappointed.

We stayed in a two bedroom appartment which was spacious enough however was tired in some respects, mainly the bathroom. The best thing about the hotel is its location, the worst was the toilet seat which was very worn and even though im sure it was clean, it didn't look good. The other negative is that the bathrooms don't have good ventilation so everything gets wet. The staff were friendly and we had a good stay overall. I wouldn't pay full price but get a good deal and the room will serve you well.

Hi Kyrastef,

Many thanks for your review of your stay at Mantra on the Park.

It is disappointing to hear there were some aspects of your stay which did not meet expectations, however since your stay back in May we are well into a program addressing some of the bathroom issues you have mentioned. There are a small number of bathrooms that we are currently having ventilation issues with and we are working with the building owners to rectify this.

We hope to see you again on your next trip to Melbourne.

Stayed at The Mantra on the Park for two nights. Great atmosphere as it was the AFL Grand-final. Very clean and spacious apartment on the 17th floor with great views from the balcony. Fantastic location, City Circle Tram at the corner, within walking distance for shopping and eating at the various restaurants. Clean swimming pool and sauna great for unwinding after the shopping! We were very impressed!

Mantra on the Park was a great place to stay for a family. Opposite the Carlton Gardens and the Museum and an easy walk from everything Melbourne has to offer, we had a ball. Its directly opposite a stop for the Melbourne City free Tram Line too. The staff were helpful and very friendly and the breakfast was great. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was spacious and modern. Highly recommended!

Great location right on the edge of CBD, walkable to most locations in the city, tram stop right outside door -- across the road from a beautiful park. Very comfy bed and a great view. Bathroom is very tired and needs a reno---- would stay here again. What about including FREE wifi.... still don't understand australian hotels that charge for internet

Room Tip: park view, although a little noisy-- worth the view
