Stayed due to rave reviews on trip advisor. Upon checking in, found the room small and pokey, perhaps the smallest one bedroom apartment I have stayed in on trips to Melbourne.
Website claims lounge room and dining room, but the room would be much more comfortable without the dining table, which seems to be squeezed into any available space.
Plain bathrooms, and cheap furniture. Included a chest of drawers I would not buy at a second hand sale.
No restaurant or room service on the weekend.
I would not rate this a 4 star apartment. I would rate it barely 3 stars.
Excellent location, however, there are other apartments of better quality in the vicinity.

My husband and i wanted to stay in the city becasue we had a concert on. From the moment we checked in the staff were so accomodating, advising us of the best ways to get to the concert and letting us know all the delightful things that the hotel had to offer. The room was gorgeous, large rooms and a clean kitchen and bathroom, but what we loved best was waking up and going right to the top for a swim and spa. It was just perfect, and i can not wait till my next stay in town, it will definitely be at the Mantra Hotel.

Great serviced apartments with separate bedroom and fully equipped kitchen, most rooms even with small balcony. There is a big swimming pool and a well equipped gym at the top floor with a nice view over Southbank. The location if great, walking distance to Federal Square, Docklands and just around the corner from river Yarra with the restaurants filled promenade. As we indicated in our that it was our honeymoon we found a bottle of champagne in the fridge!

After reading the reviews on trip advisor I was looking forward to a lovely stay.
When I walked inot the room 702 the carpet was all stained there was only a 2 seater lounge for a family of four.
The whole apartment was tired and in need of refurbishment.At $300.00 per night I expected a lot more.There was constant noise from the traffic and also there is no room service on the weekend and only from 5.30 to 9.30 during the week and a limited menue at that.I ahve travelled and stayed at a number of hotels ans this one is certiamly at the bottom of this list.Dont stay here try the Langham which is closer to SouthBank , had porters , looked elegant and professional etc.
Good luck and happy travels

I was so impressed with the staff at the Mantra Southbank. Everyone went above and beyond to help make our stay really comfortable and enjoyable! I really feel they went that extra mile that I'm not sure I've experienced elsewhere. Thanks!
