“A Lovely Girl's Weekend!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Our trip was a birthday surprise for my sister-in-law, Sue, with me flying in from Perth and Sue flying in with her daughter from Newcastle, NSW. With the help of the hotel staff, who were able to organise an early check-in and who did not let slip that I was already there, we managed to surprise Sue when she opened the apartment door!

We found the 2 bedroom apartment clean and neat with a fantastic view and even took photos of the sunrise from our balcony. Our only concern was the lack of an exhaust fan in the bathrooms which made them very misty. The location of the hotel is fantastic, with Chinatown, Queen Victoria Markets and the theatres an easy walk away. Lygon Street was a bit further, but still a reasonable walk. But with the City Circle tram just around the corner, it was very easy to get anywhere!

With the help of the very friendly and efficient staff, we had a fabulous weekend and would come back tomorrow!

We stayed in a spacious one bedroom with a lovely view overlooking Carton Gardens which had quality carpets and furnishings. Bathrooms could do with an update. The staff were very helpful with directions and places to eat close by. Dined in the hotel restaurant one night and it was enjoyable. One real complaint with this hotel would be that you cannot control the temperature in the room. It was very hot the first night making it hard to sleep. My suggestion would be that management put fans into these rooms they know have this problem until a major overhaul with the heating/cooling system can be carried out. Trams are out front and a taxi ride from the CBD will set you back $7-10.

Hi Joelle43,

Many thanks for your review of your stay at Mantra on the Park, I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Our air conditioning system is a centrally managed system which can be controlled to either heating or cooling. Unfortunately due to Melbourne's current inconsistant temperatures we are having a few minor issues when there is a sudden change to the ambient temperature, however all of our rooms offer large opening balcony doors to allow in fresh air and we do have fans available for extra comfort.

We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Melbourne.

Kind Regards

We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom suite overlooking the exhibition centre- great view! Room was spacious and clean. Shower was quite low- hard to wash my hair! The room was almost unbearably hot, even when setting the controls to ten degrees Celsius the vent was blowing hot air. Beds very comfortable, service polite and great breakfast in the café downstairs. Car parking at $30 per day seemed expensive, but hotel is perfectly situated to explore queen vic markets, Chinatown, Melbourne museum, old Melbourne gaol, etc.

My advice to everyone who wants a big apt space, book early! The price I paid was 50% off when I book 3 months in advance. So plan early your trip and you will get one of the best deals in town! It's a stone away from the tram stop.

You don't have to take a tram as it's walking distance to anywhere in town.

The receptionist was efficient, polite and helpful! You can ask any tips from them about anything. It's also nearby a rental car which is at Little Bourke St which I did not need to travel too far to get a car. Again it's walking distance from the apt.

What I did not was the check out time was way too early at 10am and if you are checking out on Friday or Saturday, the hotel won't be able to offer you late check out as their apt is quite popular on weekends. If you are checking out on a Sunday or Monday, you have better luck checking out late as that's what I have been inform.

Overall, it has been one of the best accommodation cum apt in Melbourne I have stayed so far. I would booked this apt again on my next trip.

You get what you pay for; cheap and cheerful, but in need of a renovation in the very near future.

The bathroom is basic at the very best; cracked tiles, peeling paint, and a shower with diminished divergent spray that oscillates in temperature at whim.

Despite being 11 floors above the street the noise is somehow amplified to a sleep disturbing level, and compounded by the barely muted sounds from your neighbours. A cacophony of talking, loos flushing and television.

The staff are friendly and helpful, and the hotel is well located depending on your Melbourne requirements.
