This apartment hotel is centrally located, convenient to transport and very close to sporting and cultural attractions. The welcome was efficient and friendly and there are plenty of lifts. Each of the two bedrooms in the apartment is spacious (one a little more so) with a wall of storage/hanging space. The bathroom is small but adequate. The living area has plenty of room and includes a kitchenette - for basic microwave cooking - and laundry alcove. Everything was spotlessly clean and daily service was good. We had our own equipment but there was computer access in the lobby and wi-fi in the rooms (both payable by the hour).
This was a business trip so we spent minimal time in the room but I think a small family would also find this accommodation extremely comfortable. I believe that there are also one bedroom apartments for couples.
You'll find "affirmations" on the notepaper and leaflets... a little quirky. It was a good place to stay.

Stayed for 1 night during a business trip and after reading some of the reveiws prior to flying over was not sure what to expect.

Arrived late afternoon and was met by a small but functional lobby, with friendly and polite reception staff who processed us quickly and with a minimum of fuss. Stayed on the first floor with a road side room and was expecting some noise after reading other reveiws but very little was heard.

Room was comfortable and clean although the layout is a bit weird, and the bedroom door was stuck fast and I couldn't shift it closed. Bathroom layout was strange, with the toilet in the middle of the room and basin tucked in the corner. Being able to look down the floor waste and see the shower water drain away was a bit disappointing.

Sleep quality was good, and I was not woken during the night by any traffic noise from Exhibtion Street.

Would be happy to stay again.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in May and were very happy with our choice. Even though our apartment was on the 2nd floor, it was very quiet with no issue with traffic or pedestrian noise. It was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for our 5 night stay. The kitchen was small but adequate for preparing breakfast & a basic evening meal. However, its so close to China Town and great pubs & cafes that we ended up eating out most of the time. Easy walk into the heart of the city.
The only down-side was that the carpet was due for a shampoo with stains in several places, and the bathroom floor was a bit grubby - particularly in corners & behind the loo.
Reception staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.
When next in Melbourne we will be booking this hotel again.

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment which looked onto Exhibition street and heard only minor city noise but if your a light sleeper it could be a problem not me I was so darn tired of seeing melbourne each day I hit the pillow and was out like a light.

The apartment was clean, tidy and well appointed with modern microwave, stove, toaster, kettle (full kitchen). The location is wonderful, free city tram one street back and you can catch trams from Collins and Bourke Street to the main shopping areas. Easy transport.

Security was excellent, swipe cards and 24 hour friendly reception staff who would bend over backwards to help you. The location is fantastic and close to one of the main underground train stations. I would stay here again as it felt like second home the staff were wonderful.

The only downside was the fact that the TV was brick, carpet was a bit worn and the extra blanket had holes in it but as mentioned below by management the rooms are getting an upgrade so these issue should be sorted out.

I would stay here again. Its a Mantra that offers comfort, clean tidy rooms, daily serviced rooms with friendly staff at a nice price, what more would you require.

We stayed here for six nights on a recent trip to Australia. The location was excellent for sightseeing, shopping and eating out. The reception staff were friendly and very helpful.
We stayed in a two bedroomed apartment which was well laid out and well equipped. The apartment was clean but the accommodation (especially the bathroom) needed redecorating and refurbishing with a few stains on the dining room table and carpet.

I booked last minute for work and got a fantastic rate. The place has just been renovated and the entire place looks brand new. Upon arrival at 8am was given access to the room despite check in not being until the afternoon. All the staff I dealt with were very polite and helpful. Highly recommended.
