Mantra on Kent
Ranked #77 of 179 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed 27 February 2014

It’s modern, funky and all about location.

If you are looking for sophisticated style in a central location in Sydney, then don’t look past the Mantra on Kent Street.

The recent refurbishment of the property offers contemporary quality furnishings with subtle artwork to match the rooms feature colours. If you’re only travelling with your partner or one other person then the funky Studio Apartment will be enough to keep you more than comfortable. Or perhaps you’re travelling with friends and need a large apartment such as the sectioned Two Bedroom Apartment? Whatever your needs, there is a room to match.

Conveniently located between Darling Harbour and the Sydney CBD, it is the perfect hotel for business and leisure travellers alike. Sydney city’s iconic tourist and business destinations are less than a kilometre away, offering the perfect base for business travellers, couples and families to explore the sights and sounds of Sydney.

Recently stayed at Mantra on Kent for 3 nights with a group of friends before going on a cruise.

We found it a great location so close and handy to Darling Harbour and easy walk to Circular Quay and the shopping district.

We did catch a taxi to OPT with all our luggage.

The staff we so friendly and very helpful with all our enquiries and requests.

Breakfast was great every day.

Rooms very clean.

The only down side that rooms are looking a little tired and could do with a revamp.

A colleague and myself stayed at Mantra on Kent this week. 2 twin beds were provided as requested. The hotel is close to the CBD and Darling Harbour. The staff at reception were excellent and helpful. Also a special mention and thank you to the night manager who drove us to the airport on Wed morning. I would stay there again and recommend the hotel to others.

Our room was on the 9th floor, very clean & well appointed including kitchen area, washing machine & dryer in the bathroom plus balcony. Our only disappointment was that it had a very uninviting view over a car park but if we overlooked it had distant darling harbour views. The staff were welcoming and friendly, no parking was available on site, however we parked in the Wilson car park next door and the Mantra validated our ticket so it was $36 for our 24 hour stay which is very cheap for parking in the middle of Sydney CBD. The location of the hotel is brilliant, a short walk to Pitt St Mall & Darling Harbour. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Maybe not a room right next to the stairwell.
