Reviewed December 25, 2013

We have stayed here twice now and will definitely stay again. The location is fabulous; not right in the city but comfortably far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet, great views of the city, and a leisurely walk into town.
Our kids love the pool. We love the extraordinary space afforded to us in the two bedroom apartment we were allocated. Five of us stayed there very happily. It is really good value for the accommodation. Plenty of towels, clean, easy car parking... what more could you want?

We had a room on the second floor - very small room and what furnishings there were and the decoration looked a bit tired, verging on grubby. Nowhere to sit, other than on the bed or uncomfortable dining chairs. Air conditioning didn't work well and the shower and fittings were old and it took a lot of fiddling to get the water temperature to an acceptable level. We used the pool one very hot afternoon - very pleasant. The staff at reception were exceptionally nice and helpful. The proximity of the hotel to the CBD was good - either a 15 minute walk or 3 minute walk to the nearest tram stop. It is also very close to sports arenas. We will return to Melbourne but wouldn't choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool don't get much train noise.

I stayed twice in November. The accommodation for first stay was on 8th floor and was clean,spacious and quiet. My second stay was on the 3rd floor in a room which was very tired and noisy from the railway nearby going into Flinders Street Station. The breakfasts were great and set me up for busy days in and around Melbourne. Has nice pool but a bit overlooked.
All staff were polite, friendly and helpful.
Very close to MCG for anyone going to the cricket.

Room Tip: Ask for 8th floor at front.

Good morning,
I'm glad you enjoyed your stays! We are in a great position to make the most of concerts and sporting at Rod Laver Arena or the MCG, but also close enough to the CBD to make city business or sightseeing an option. Thanks also for your other 'traveller tips' - I'm sure others will appreciate them.

Great hotel. Convenient to conference location & short walk to city centre, 10-15 mins to Federation Square. Friendly staff. Easy access. Breakfast was included & hjad a great range to choose from. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I was not on level 4, not facing Jolimont Rd (it looked busy at certain times).

It's not at the city center, but still at walk-able distance to the city. We booked one bed room apartment for 4 nights. Spacious rooms, complemented with a mini kitchen, bed room, living room and a nifty bathroom. Service at the reception was awesome and staffs were fantastic. Few negative aspects at this hotel are the noise of the train from the neighborhood metro station is quite loud if you really looking for some calm and quite location. Kitchen opens late (after 08:00 am ) on the weekdays if you are looking to grab some quick bite before heading out. Sunday and Monday Kitchen is closed, so be prepared to eat outside before heading to your room. We still enjoyed the stay there, even though we did not get chance to make use of other facilities like heated pool outside.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the room facing the railway tracks

Good location with easy access to MCG and other sporting facilities. Hotel is quite dated and noise from trains is an issue (even on 8th floor). Staff at Reception are friendly and efficient but restaurant room service was extremely slow - I needed to make x3 calls to chase a simple meal request that was eventually delivered over 1½ hrs. after ordering. Apology appeared to be forced and not genuine.

Room Tip: High level floor to minimise train noise

Good morning,

Thank you for posting a review of Mantra on Jolimont, I do appreciate you taking the time to document your thoughts regarding the property.

I am glad you enjoyed some aspects of the property, and rest assured that we have already followed up the events of that night in question with the restaurant team. They had thought that while you had obviously been inconvinienced, that you had been satisfied eventually with the outcome - so they are sorry that you felt their response 'forced'.

went to the Beyoncé concert recently. stayed here for the convenience of distance to Rod Laver. When you book ask for a room at the front of the building as this will keep the train noise to a minimum as the tracks are right behind the hotel. Bring your shorts...I went for a swim in the outdoor heated pool. was at a good temperature for the weather was a bit chilly on this day. The rooms are basic no real problem there. Breakfast the next morning was good enough. The eating area holds about 30 to 40 diners so be aware to pick time properly. Overall a good stay, would go back again

Room Tip: Book a room at the front or on the north side away from railway tracks for noise
