Reviewed 12 May 2013

We recently had to attend a wedding in the city and rather than travel home after the festivities we decided to stay in the city. After seeing a promotion deal on the Sydney Weekender TV show that coincided with the timing of the wedding we booked for 2 nights. Centrally located at the Wynyard end of Sydney it is close to Circular Quay,The Rocks and the shopping areas of the city. Wynyard Station entrance is across the road, everything is handy. The rooms are spacious with self contained facilities if you require. We requested a room on George St, we had our own balcony which gives views up and down George St. A must see is the pool and BBQarea on the roof, what a view. The staff were friendly and helpful. All in a great experience and we would recommend a stay here if you need to stay in Sydney.

Room Tip: Rooms on George St and up high are quieter being less affected by the noise of the nearby nightclubs...

when ever I am in Sydney I mostly choose to stay at the Mantra 2 Bond Street for a number of reasons:
it is easy to get to from the domestic airport - just hop on the train from the airport to Wynyard station for $15.90 and the Mantra is diagonally across the road - perfect for single business travelers! Faster than a taxi and cheaper!
the property is very well located for business or pleasure
the staff are very professional and helpful - i checked into room 1305 but there was quite a bit of air con or water noise happening for some reason on that floor and I asked to move to a quiet room. I was offered room 402 which was excellent - sure it has no outlook (looking out to a wall) but being off George Street it was very quiet and ensured blissful sleeping!
the rate was excellent for this category of property

overall another satisfying stay at Mantra and I look fwd to staying there again in the near future

Room Tip: if you want a quiet room and not worried about views over George Street then ask for a room XX02 tha...

Dear JCB_8,

Thankyou for your review of Mantra 2 Bond St. Your comments indicate another wonderful stay which are always pleasing to read. Some rooms are quiter than others as you have made mention and of course being in the middle of the city does mean some of the rooms have limited viewing.Look forward to welcoming you back when you next visit Sydney.

Yours Sincerely

We stayed for 2 nights on a theatre visit to Sydney. Hotel has a great location, crawling distance to the shops, theatres, restaurants as well as the Harbour, Circular Quay and Opera House. Staff are lovely and the rooms spacious, so well appointed and quiet with a little balcony overlooking the city skyline. Great breakfast area
Two observations to increase to a 5 star review would be the introduction of free WiFi and a bar for residents that stays open to a reasonable hour - ie after 0900pm!!

Room Tip: Go to a higher floor for the best views.

Dear HCDHunterValley,

Thankyou for your feedback on tripadvisor. Especially nice to read your comments on the staff as they work extremely hard to provide good quality service. We are looking at some changes in our restaurant in the coming months which will enable us to remain open later and provide a wider range of products. Free wifi is available in the lobby area for a limited time.

Yours Sincerely

The Mantra is very conveniently located and on check in the staff were helpful and friendly. I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment. The lounge, dining room and kitchen are all in one and quite big. The bedrooms are a bit pokey and the bathroom is tiny. The shower is very small, however there is a washing machine and tumble drier. Reasonable bathroom products - would be nice if there was some body lotion. Carpets are worn, in some places have holes, bottoms of doors are chipped and some serious rusty mould on the bathroom tiles. A couple of insects running across the bathroom floor also made me wonder what might be crawling over me at night.

Room Tip: Try to get a quiet room, away from main streets.

We stayed in executive room on level 2 overlooking George St, no proper balcony. Had requested a higher room and found they did have one on level 7 but offered it only after the room we were in had a noisy bathroom fan which does not switch off. We didn't move because our daughter was asleep as it was close to midnight and apparently all the fans do not switch off and all blow cold air. Traffic noise in the morning but we were up early anyway. We were only there for another two nights and therefore put up with it.
We had to leave the air conditioner off as otherwise the fan in bathroom was too noisy. The single fold out bed very small for an adult.
A few minor appliances not working but fixed the next day.
On the plus side, close to circular quay and the rocks.

The Mantra on Bond in downtown Sydney has become my regular when in town on business, and it serves its purpose well enough. An apartment hotel rather than the more conventional room complex, it has a bit more space to it than many central city hotels. I prefer the self-catering option most of the time so the kitchen is welcome and the living areas are a decent and comfortable size.

The location can be something of a pain to get to, especially in peak traffic, but for someone on foot it's easy to reach. I've been caught in gridlocked traffic at times and it's taken an hour or so to get to the hotel from not far away - a nuisance we can all do without.

The rooms are generally quiet, which is nice, and apart from locating the air-conditioning controls (they're in the wardrobe, BTW) most things are in a logical place.

Car parking can be an issue - there are not enough parks for the hotel guests in the underground parking garage, and you don't want to be the last one in of an evening.

The hotel serves its purpose as far as I'm concerned - it's comfortable and the staff are competent and efficient.

Room Tip: Most rooms seem to be much the same - haven't found a special one or a real dud.

No kidding. $169 a night for 2 nights got me a modern, clean renovated suite with:

Bathroom - washing m/chine and dryer
King sized bed
Step down into lounge living area
Small modern kitchen with m/vave, d/washer and stove.
Gym and swimming pool onsite (though I didn't use them this time so can' really comment)

Plenty of space, great location on George and Bond Sts. Checkin and out very easy. Ok room service selection and prices reasonable. Very comfortable. One of the best value of all my stays across Oz, and being cbd Sydney is extraordinary. My stay of choice in Sydney without doubt.
