Not good management, when I ask If possible to change the linens after my 2nd night. The the person at the counter looks like a manager, a big short fat woman was not willing to talk to me. When I came back to sleep I found a latter saying we are not going to change your linens before 7th day.

In the heart of all the new year celebration

Rebecca Couples - 12/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

We booked a room for a couple of nights for new years eve and to spend some time in Melbourne CBD. The Mantra on Russel is definitely in the heart of all the action of the great restaurants of Chinatown and Little Bourke. The room was clean and tidy. The pool access allowed us to cool of after a summers day of exploring. The staff were also very courteous and helpful.

Very accommodating

We had a lovely experience; all staff were very accommodating and able to assist with providing another room with an open shower for my grandmother who couldn't use the combined bath/shower. Have stayed before and will definitely stay again!

Well located

Anna Families - 10/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Was only here for a brief stay, for a wedding. But was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the 1 bedroom apartment. It was spacious and the couch was very large and comfortable. The bed and pillows was very comfortable as well and the bathroom was lovely and big and clean. Couldn't fault it. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent Spot

Our third stay in 12 months and we just love it here. As always the staff are so friendly and helpful. The view from our balcony is always great, we love watching the world go by. The location is fabulous too. We literally walked everywhere, even to the casino and back. Thank you for a lovely little break. We will back soon.

Great Location and Spacious Room

Location was close to everything we love about Melbourne (fantastic food!!) Room was spacious for kids to play and the area is well built that you don't hear your neighbours.

Decent stay

Donna G. Couples - 08/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

General stay is very good- rooms a good size and comfy. Great location Housekeeping needs to be improved as our room had not been aired out and the room air was stale and dusty ( I was sneezing for the 1st hour of staying!)

Well located and excellent service

Marianne Couples - 06/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

This is the second time we have stayed because of the excellent location. This time we had issues with Covid and the staff went above and beyond to assist with a great deal on the extra night accommodation and bringing our Uber eats to the door.

Mantra on Russell was very central to all of our activities in the city, both shopping and theatre

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Jill C. Families - 06/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The front desk staff couldn't be more helpful, and our apartment was comfortable, clean and had all of the required amenities. We were fortunate to have a light breakfast inhouse before departure, and the staff were so obliging.

Excellent location, close to most attractions, especially with kids.

Amazing location, close to everything you’ll need to experience Melbourne‘s attractions. Supermarket is at your doorstep especially handy when staying with kids. Clean, quiet and all staff were very helpful and attentive. The hotel has been our preferred place when staying in the city, since 2010.

Good position in CBD.

Had a great weekend and stayed at a very nice hotel. Beautifully clean and great facility would definitely highly recommend. Close proximity to the city parking a breeze at very competitive rates. First stay at this hotel but we will return.

Dear P5056TRjohnv, Thank you so much for your review and it is so fantastic to read how much you enjoyed celebrating a birthday weekend away at our hotel. Housekeeping will love to read your kind words around the cleanliness. Thank you for sharing. Regards,

Great Place to Stay

Glenn6849 12/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Recently stayed at The Mantra on Russell. Location was great to access the city of Melbourne. The room was clean and spacious. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and only to help out when required. The only negative for our stay was the tv in the lounge room - when it was turned on or off at full volume you got Boom Bom even when the remote was muted. So if you were up early and your partner was still sleeping it was loud enough to wake every body up. Would highly recommend this hotel and will stay again when in Melbourne

Dear Glenn6849, Thank you for sharing with us your recent experience and I am so pleased it was a positive one and that you would choose to stay with us again. A valid point in regards to the TV which may be an easy fix so I will ask our Building Manager to take a look at this to see if there is anything we can do in the programming. Again many thanks. Regards, Aaron

IndhiranP 10/03/2021 TripAdvisor review

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff and fascilities were excellent. Great location. Very close to public transport and all shoping. Enjoyed the evening walks to the city centre and the vibrant China town. Will definately visit again.

Dear IndhiranP, Thank you for the review and for highlighting how close we are to everything but nothing more important than the yummy food outside the doors of the hotel in Chinatown. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Regards. Aaron

Lots of space

Excellent location, so close to shops and easy to get to by tram. Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was a surprise, very spacious and everything I needed. It was nice to receive the thoughtful gifts and I appreciated the note from the staff who serviced the room. Would stay again.

Dear Fearless776828, Thank you for the review and thank you for recognizing the note left by our Housekeeping team which is their seal of approval so to speak! I am pleased you enjoyed your stay, our location and our wonderful team members. Until next time. Aaron
