Mantra on Kent
Ranked #75 of 181 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The beds were comfortable, I stayed in a studio apartment on the 27th floor and the view was good. Breakfast in the morning at the hotel was great also.
Location is close to Darling Harbour, and parking is very close to the hotel.

Stayed here for 4 nights with 2 girlfriends. We had a 1 bedroom and studio apartments which connected which worked really well with 1 person on a double fold out couch in the living room. So close to Queen Victoria Building, Pitt Street Westfield and other amazing shops, we could walk everywhere
We were on the 12th floor with a good view of Darling Harbour. It was very quiet, cosy and just perfect for a mid-priced hotel in town. Good amenities, including a washing machine and dryer but could have used a dishwasher and while the room was serviced everyday our dishes were not done for us - so that was a bit disappointing. We did not have breakfast in the hotel but did have room service one night - had a reasonably nice pizza and salad but very average desert - however the staff were so nice when we complained and sent desert back that totally made up for it. All in all, a great inner city location, pleasant staff and very clean - would definitely stay again.

Dear juzzyhall,
Thank you for choosing Mantra on Kent for your girls’ weekend away and your feedback. Our apartments are very quiet and I am glad you had a pleasant stay and had a good rest between your shopping trips.
I am sorry to learn that the dessert was not up to your liking and hope next time we can offer something else you would enjoy.
We will be thrilled to accommodate you again in the future.

Great stay at the Mantra on Kent - really happy with the location as very close to QVB, Myer, David Jones and Westfield! Great for Darling Harbour too. We were 3 adults staying in a 2 bed apartment which is 2 rooms interconnecting with sofa beds. The main room has sliding doors to divide the bedroom with the lounge where the sofa bed is so you still feel a sense of privacy. The shower was amazing - brilliant water pressure and the bathroom was a good size and had the laundry facilities in it. Great apartments and would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for the fifth or sixth time last night. We were in Sydney to see a concert at the State Theatre; about a 400m walk.

Reception staff were delightful, the building well maintained and our room was very clean.

The room was very well equipped with up to date appliances etc. The washing machine and dryer in the bathroom could come in very handy for those staying longer. Furniture was quite new and the bed was extremely comfortable. Partner took its name and address for future purchase dreams.

The kitchen has a double hotplate, microwave, toaster, jug and fridge. Good for survival cookery, maybe not a slap up meal.

Subsidised parking is available next door.

We had breakfast there today and it was as good as any buffet breakfast I have enjoyed. Well worth a look!

Not sure I should share, but we really like the food at the Belvedere Hotel - just down the street - quality meals served quickly by pleasant staff in a great venue. Tick, tick, tick, tick! ("tick" is Oz for "check"!)

If you have time, the National Maritime Museum is a short stroll away and offers the opportunity to climb all over all sorts of vessels.

It would be an ideal place to stay if you plan on sailing on the tallship "James Craig" (1874) sometime. This old iron beauty was visible from our room (Rm 2003).

Mantra on Kent comes with my highest recommendation for those visiting Sydney CBD, Darling Harbour, Opera House etc.

We had outstanding service from the staff. We had a one bedroom apartment for ourselves and grandson. Fold out bed in the living area was a double bed and very comfortable. The apartment was well set up, comfortable and quite spacious but not glamorous. Buffet breakfasts were very good - food was freshly prepared and worth having - good value for Sydney!
Location was excellent - midway between Darling Harbour and Queen Victoria Building which has access to Town Hall Station with 2 stops to Circular Quay, although it is an easy 15-20 min walk. Could catch the Airport Express Train in only 5 - 10 min walk from Town Hall Station. There is a big Woolworths Supermarket with access from Town Hall Station for self catering.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less traffic noise.

I can't say enough about this place! This was our second stay and it would be our preferred accommodation for future trips to Sydney.
Our room was ready when we arrived at 10.45am which was a fantastic bonus. We also had a decent view of Darling Harbour. The staff were all friendly and very helpful and made us feel so welcome.
The location is great, the room spacious with everything you need in it, including washing machine and dryer, full kitchen complete with oven. The place is very quiet, which is great considering it's right in the city centre and close to everything. The breakfast was delicious, and again the staff in the restaurant were so lovely and friendly.
We found the great combination of a fantastic team, comfortable spacious accommodation and ideal location hard to beat.
We would definitely stay at Mantra on Kent on future trips to Sydney!
