Recent guest reviews

The apartment I booked online had two singles which my partner and I really didn't want to be sleeping in. Reception staff immediately changed this to a queen effortlessly with no disruption to our booking. The apartment was great. It had everything we needed and was very clean and well furnished. Thanks for a great stay Mantra

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I was fully accommodated for and received late check out as asked for. The location was good and nice view of the city. Being a Mantra+ member is definitely worth it, and a great bonus with all the benefits and inclusions it provides.

Will always stay at Mantra on Russell when I'm visiting Melbourne. Location is very central to everything I require. Staff are excellent. The rooms are very comfortable. I have dined there and attended Happy Hour. Most enjoyable.

The Mantra is a great place to stay. The staff were great and the room was awesome. Breakfast was delicious but they cook the bacon so much that it is too hard. The only letdown of the stay was the shower. The pressure was very poor and very hard to get the hot/ cold in sync. A let diwn as a shower is very important.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The room size was fantastic (one bedroom, lounge, kitchen). Compared to competitors for similar price, this room was double the size. Bed was also a true king, and it was a proper equipped kitchette. Staff were really friendly and responsive. The only thing that could be improved was to have usb chargers in room - however when asked, reception were able to provide ths asap. Overall a really enjoyable stay.

Was a fantastic location, but being on level 7 there was a lot of street noise and the rooms need a good clean on all surfaces. The breakfast though is amazing and having the car park next door was very handy. Great central location

The service was amazing, the location even better. We walked everywhere. Even home from our quick unexpected visit to the local ED department. The facilities were enjoyable and room service - DELISH. Highly recommended

This is not your typical hotel. Many of the rooms are 1 or 2 bedroom apartments that are well appointed. Very comfortable, quiet and in the middle of everything from food to shopping. Free tram service is just steps away. And a secure connected parking area is a bonus.

Excellent location, great value & friendly staff Would recommend for both families and couple in particular studio suites where you can cook for yourself or visit CBD restaurants. Easy checkout and value for money

We had a great stay at the Mantra In Russell. Tidy, clean and neat it was the perfect spacious accommodation for visiting Melbourne CBD. The hotel is just minutes walk from the central Melbourne shopping precinct and across the road from the Chinatown restaurants. We loved it!
