Close to the airport but a taxi ride away we booked this for a stayover and it was ok. Rooms were decent size and clean. Had rooms service and that was ok - pretty standard for a mantra property. Bed was terrible - way to soft - it was a king split and took a day for my back to right itself! Was very pleased to get the free airport shuttle to the airport the next morning for our flight so that was a bonus.

Room Tip: Ask for the free shuttle back to the airport!

Google Maps doesn't do the proximity of this hotel to Melbourne airport justice. It is very near to the airport and is easily accessed via a cab or their own shuttle. Be aware that the morning shuttle buses are very busy so allow time incase you can't get on the next one. Alternatively a cab is very cheap to get there. The rooms are modern and a good size, with a comfortable kingsize workbench.

We recently stayed overnight at the mantra and really did not enjoy it. We arrived late and had a terrible transfer to the hotel. It was very difficult to get through on the phone, then when we were advised 10 mins, it was more like 25 and there were too many people to get in the bus as the bus also takes people to the car park.

We missed last orders due to the hassle with the transfer, so had to settle for room service, this was ok.

The transfer was better back to the airport the next day however.

Overnight we were awoken with lots of loud drunk people making noise in the corridor, this lasted for around 30 mins.

We were not too impressed with the room for the price we paid.

We would not stay here again.

We stayed here to get to the airport for an early morning flight.
It's only 10 minutes away from Tullamarine and there is a shuttle service door to door.
As a bonus the rooms are comfortable and a good size, the bar food tasty (there's a restaurant as well) and the staff were helpful.
This is a great alternative for an overnight stop before/between flights. Not expensive and great value.
Highly recommended.

The Mantra is in a great location for businesses around the airport & Tullamarine. It isn't noisy at all as it is a few minutes from the airport but is still close by and the free shuttle to the airport is a help.

The Staff are friendly and the rooms clean and straightforward. The breakfast is fantastic however the restaurant is fairly soulless ... what you might expect I suppose from this kind of establishment.

All in all i'd stay again.

The hotel is new, the rooms are fine all be it a little cosy in size. If you just need it for a night as an airport stopover it is a good option, although you need to get in a cab to get to it from the airport but its less then 5 minutes.
Bathrooms are small, bed is fine. Staff were delightful and helpful.

If meeting with Freight Forwarders or Airport departments in MEL, the Mantra Tullamarine hotel is a great choice for accommodation. Ideally located, close to the Airport without much of the noise that an Airport Hotel can have. Friendly staff with a free courteous shuttle service from the Airport to the Hotel. Clean specious room. Relatively safe neighbourhood with good walking around. Many Freight Forwarders are within walking distance. Internet access is not free but it is fast enough and does allow for VPN access which was important to me.
