Reviewed December 21, 2008

We booked this trip with Virgin Holidays. I took my husband there for our 1 yr anniv and loved the place.. We originally booked a standard room, however we upgraded for an extra $40pn to a 1 br apartment overlooking the city.. If you want this view, ask for room 809.. it's on the top floor!
The staff were nice, however one of the manangers were questioning my hire car, about parking onsite and not paying the $20pd for parking.. I think they should have complimentry parking.. The food menu does not consist of alot, however us being vegetarians they can cook specific meals for you.. The location is also good, however the taxi turn up time is rediculous. i recommend this hotel and would stay again!

Nicely decorated, clean and roomy apartment and the staff were just outstanding (and I am fussy). Nothing was too much trouble for them. Despite being busy as they were fully booked they were just so friendly helping us with advice on trams and babysitting amongst other things.

Room service was efficient and prompt. One night we discovered we had no plug and called reception and had one within a few minutes - I have been at 5 star hotels that have not managed that.

Location is awesome for a concert at Rod Laver or a footy game at the MCG as it is literally a 3-5 minute walk.

Enjoyed our stay at the Jolimont and will be back!!

We stayed at Mantra because of the convenient location as we had a concert at Rod Laver Arena and thought it would be easier to simply walk there. The Hotel is walking distance from trams and the Jolimont Station which is excellent, and a 5 min walk across the bridge to Rod Laver Arena which was awesome.

The hotel itself is simple yet clean. The room is smaller than we had anticipated and the chairs were wobbly and seemed unsafe to sit on. Pillows were hard, we woke up with a stiff neck.

The bathroom was large and the shower huge!

Staff were friendly and courteous, no issues there. Check in is 2pm and check-out 10am which is an hour earlier than usual. The restaurant opens at 5pm which was a bit disappointing as we had to travel to the city to get some lunch.

Overall, it's a good stay if you're after convenience, not luxury. I would probably stay there again.

Enjoy!

This Hotel was suprisingly quiet given it's location,which was
just across the road from the MCG(Melbourne cricket ground),
we stayed there at the height of the AFL Finals,and could really
have been a million miles away,as we experienced no noise
whatsoever,The Hotel was clean and functional with Double-
glazed windows,and pleasant staff,one could do alot worse
with other similar priced accommodation.

Stayed here for 4 nights, arrived late at 1am and check in was quick, which was great, really wanted to go to bed!! Stayed in a studio room, which was standard size and very neat and tidy, just what we needed for our trip to Melbourne.
Great location. We went to 2 footy games at the MCG, not even a 5 minute walk, was ideally located for that. Even the city is not a long walk, and we did that walk everyday, we even walked all over the city, to Docklands, up to Lygon St. Needless to say our feet and legs were a bit sore! But it is an easy walk to trams, trains and buses at Flinders Station.
Would definately stay here again, we loved Melbourne also, and intend to make it an annual event.
Got a good price on www.wotif.com.

Just returned from Melbourne, the Mantra on Jolimont was a quiet and clean place to stay. Staff would help in anyway possible they have 24 hr reception. Parking was secure and less hassle than I had thought it would be. Beds changed daily, it was better than the next hotel I went to after this. Just because a hotel is big and flashy looking, does not mean it is better than the smaller ones, I will definately stay at the Mantra again. Walking distance to the MCG, & what about those free tram rides to drop you off at all the attractions! Dining downstairs if you want a good meal and don't want to go out in the cold. Well done Mantra on Jollimont, I would definately recommend you to anyone.

The recent name change from Seville Apartments, along with the worn wooden furniture and kitchen floors suggests an upgrade is in the works, and then the price will likely jump. Right now, this pleasant property is a good deal. It is clean, bright, and appealing. Our skyline view was gorgeous. Despite being close to rail transit lines, it is fairly quiet even with the windows open. Three lines have stations nearby, and Flinders Station, a major hub, is a pleasant short walk away, and along with it Fed Square, the CBD, and the Victoria Art Museum. Closer still is Fitzroy Gardens, a beautiful park with several attractions within, and gorgeous old trees towering over its pathways. The neighborhood is primarily low rise residential, with wide tree lined streets, gracious and reserved but close to the heart of Melbourne. The only shortcoming is its lack of wireless internet, and only one monitor open to the public, with dial up service. I've had worse internet connections, and none at all. As it is now, for this price, I'd still have The Mantra on my short list for my next stay.
