“Fantastic Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

Great location and excellent amentities within the room. I was most pleased with the set up in the laundry room. Despite the small space, Mantra has managed to fit in both a washing machine and a dryer. The hotel is also located between Darling Harbour and Pitt Street which is the heart of all shopping within the CBD area. I'm very satisfied with Mantra and will definitely recommend anyone who's visiting Sydney.

We arrived with our baggage early after disembarking from a cruise ship. A big thank you to Jin who could not have been more helpful. We had requested a room with a balcony but upon arrival enquired about a view. When asking could we look at the apartment Jin did not hesitate to show us two rooms. We decided on a room with a view on a high floor & Jin said she would telephone us when the room was ready. We left our baggage & went exploring.

Upon returning to Mantra we were delighted with our room - it was spotlessly clean - had every facility you could want & a great view over Darling Harbour. We unfortunately had a problem with the air conditioning in that room but immediately had two maintenance guys come up to look at it but as it required an electrician & it was late in the day they went out of their way to assist us in moving to another apartment which had the same views but three floors down. This room was also perfect.

I cannot speak highly enough of all the staff at Mantra nothing was a problem to any of them. They arranged our shuttle to the airport, gave advice in relation to restaurants & always had a smile.

The location was perfect - as stated in other reviews it is a short walk to Darling Harbour or the City.

We had a one bedroom executive apartment & they are spacious. It was so quiet you would not have known you were in the City centre.

We would certainly return to Mantra on Kent.

Room Tip: Higher up --- no traffic noise.

Just recently stayed in Mantra on Kent for one night. Great location within walking distance to Darling Harbour (Great choice of restaurant) Staff was friendly and helpful. We asked in advance for apartment with balcony and there was no problem when we checked inn. If you like to be in a center of the city this place is OK.

This hotel is very well located in the centre of Sydney and is only a short walk from Darling Harbour (Cockle Bay Wharf). Breakfasts are good - self service and very tasty. Staff are very helpful. Rooms come with cooking facilities and there are washing machines and tumble driers in the bathrooms.

We just had a quick stopover in the City and picked the Manta on Kent purely because it was a Mantra and we have stayed with them quite a few times.. We were not disappointed. Not the best scenic location but it is very close to Darling Harbour, Chinatown and the CBD. Rooms were very roomy and clean. No complaints at all.

Gorgeous corner room, clean an comfortable and self contained with windows on both sides almost on the bridge. It was really close to Darling Harbour so could go back and forth. Staff friendly. Can book shuttle to the airport from there children's half price too. Fantastic to have a good washing machine and dryer. Used the sofa bed for 3 people. :)

Room Tip: Great if u have little children..not far to Townhall station and Darling Harbour...costly for car ga...
