Mantra on Little Bourke

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We are reasonably regular visitors to Melbourne and have stayed in the CBD in a range of Hotels. This is in our top 3. It is clean, reasonably priced, comfortable and the reception staff helpful and friendly. Its central location is convenient to restaurants, shops and entertainment. It is also a short walk from the Spencer St Station - ideal for interstate visitors arriving in the CBD on the Skybus.The only minor jarring note was the sullen, bearded guy in the breakfast room - clearly unhappy with life, but this is countered by the other excellent service skills of the rest of the staff. We look forward to staying there again on our next visit to Melbourne.

Booked what I thought was the smallest room in the building and was pleasantly surprised to walk into a studio apartment with a half wall offering privacy to the sleeping quarters. Was a very affordable price considering the space I had in the room. Staff were really helpful allowing me to hold my bags prior to check in and answered all my queries promptly. Gym facility was excellent, and I appreciated the inclusion of the space considering inner-city properties are not abundant with extra space. Pleasant stay and would revisit.

Was a great night away, was on the more expensive side, but we enjoyed ourselves and enjoyed the breakfast offered and overall rate the Mantra on Little Bourke very good, where we could stay there again.

I enjoyed having gym on the premises and the room was changed daily. Reception staff was excellent. However, the restaurant was expensive and the food quality was average. There was very little option for gluten & dairy free people.

The staff were so friendly and helpful. Rooms are so spacious, and clean. Beds are so comfortable. Really good value for money. Its my favourite place to stay in Melbourne CBD. Can't wait until my next stay!

Couldn't ask for better, great position in the heart of Melbourne. Will certainly recommend to my fellow workmates. Great meals at a reasonable price. looking forward to my next stay even thou it will be the Mantra at Tullermarine. I am Sure the staff there will be just as good.

Well located, helpful staff, well priced food and drinks, good facilities, clean and good sized rooms. Went for business but would use the hotel if in Melbourne for a non business stay - easy check in and check out.

Great place to stay. Clean and roomy with welcoming staff. Centrally located in the law district and easy walking distance to various shops and attractions. Despite central location it is surprisingly quiet at night. Definitely staying there again on our next visit to Melbourne.

I stayed here for one night with a friend in an executive studio room. We were very impressed with the size of the room, and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom were well appointed and the pod coffee machine was handy. I was disappointed on the wifi front though - I didn't think to ask about wifi when I checked in, and it wasn't until I tried to connect at 11pm that I realised I had to either pay for it or get a code. I wasn't really in the mood to chase up with reception at that time of night so I just went without. In retrospect I found it odd that I wasn't asked about my wifi requirements at check-in - nowadays it's just a given that you will use it.

Very nice hotel, very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was much larger than expected. Shower pressure was not very good, but that is not really an issue for short stays. Would stay again and make it my first choice for future stays in Melbourne. Very reasonably priced.
