Mantra Terrace Hotel
Ranked #54 of 169 Hotels in Brisbane
Reviewed 13 January 2013

I've read other reviews that expressed disappointment over the size of the rooms. Yes, the standard rooms are small but I've stayed in smaller (mainly in Europe). Plus, I've stayed here before so knew pretty much what I was going to get.

That said, I like this hotel. The service is very good, the decor is modern and elegant, the rooms are well equipped; and if you're in Brisbane to work, socialise etc and wont be in the room much, do you really need a big room?

It's a short walk from central station, so it's a good choice if you're catching the AirTrain. It's a short walk into the city, to riverside etc, but pretty quiet and tucked away a little, so I think the location is good.

The restaurant/bar downstairs is great. I really like having a beer outside here, and breakfast is good too.

In terms of the room, a standard is fine for a single or maybe a couple. There is no seating, just the bed. The mini bar has a small but good selection, and the prices are reasonable. Tea and coffee is a cut above the usual, with T2 and Robert Timms sachets - no Liptons or International Roast here! There is an ironing board and space to hang up clothes. There's an iPod docking state which is great, and something more hotels should offer. Free wifi was good and it worked without problems.

The shower is great - the shower head is a very powerful rain shower one, but it's attached to the wall not the ceiling which is great if you don't want to get your hair wet. Toiletries ok, nothing special. No shower cap, which was a bit annoying.

We even have Cloud Nine hair straighteners available for guest use! Please feel free to contact our friendly reception team if there is anything you need while you are staying with us and they will do their best to have it available as soon as possible.

We were impressed with our stay last night at the Diamant Hotel. The location is great. Short (10-15 minute walk to the city). The customer service we received by the reception staff was outstanding. The room although compact was spotless and well appointed. The extra touches such as quality toiletries, coffee bags and tea was very much appreciated. Our breakfast (cafe/ bar attached to the hotel) was delicious, the staff were attentive and friendly.

Our stay at the Diamant Hotel Brisbane was amazing. When we called to book the staff member was very pleasant and very attentive to our requirements of a room - there was no push to upgrade or anything. Upon arrival the counter staff were very professional, personable and ensured our stay was memorable (which it was). We were here due to my birthday and friends giving us a dinner cruise. The hotel supplied us with a bottle of champagne for the occasion and also when we turned the TV on it came up with Happy Birthday Caroline - how personable and awesome that was. The staff were so helpful with directions on where we wanted to go and have an excellent knowledge of the Brisbane area. The beds are so comfy - we did not wake with aches like some hotel beds. We highly recommend this hotel and the after service is outstanding as well. Caroline and Paul Osborne

Room Tip: We had a standard room facing the street and there was no street noise what so ever.

... I've kept meaning to jump on and write a quick thanks for weeks now, finally have time to say it... THANKS! I stayed at the hotel in the beginning of Dec. Myself and partner had booked the basic standard room for the weekend as we had a wedding to attend and were also heading out for a costume party. The hotel had given us a complimentary upgrade which was great so we had a balcony, but due to having several friends from out of town going to get ready in our room there just wasn't enough space! The hotel was almost booked out so we couldn't get one of the suites on the top floor but one of the girls at the desk suggested we have a look at a wheelchair access room on the first floor. BINGO! No balcony, double bed rather than king but huge amounts of space in the bathroom for us all to get dressed. We were so pleased! To top it off we even got a bottle of sparkles free!! We thought we were being nuisances but staff were so caring. Terrific service. All I can say is thank-you and we recommend you to everyone we speak to. After reading some other posts all I can say to anyone who stays that has a problem is - talk to the staff and they will bend over backwards to help...

Room Tip: If you're going to have a few people getting dressed up and ready to go out, then forego a balco...

I booked via the hotel and from this moment until the end of our stay the staff went above and beyond to ensure top standards of customer service were met.

The reception staff were always pleasant and helpful in assuring room service and taxis were prompt, the hotel food was very flavourful and filling (be it bircher muesli or salt and pepper squid) and the cocktails were delicious made with fresh fruits and original ingredients.

Last but not least the rooms are VERY clean.

On our return to Brisbane we intend to stay with the Diamant Hotel as it was a truly enjoyable experience, an added touch to an already wonderful holiday.

The Diamant Hotel in Brisbane seems to be a well constructed solidly built small residential building. I would guess that it is built from tiltup concrete panels with possible use of post tensioning which would allow for cost savings during the construction phase. A modest design phase budget would have been allowed for with nice use of shadow lines in lieu of cornices in most feature areas and with high quality fittings being used throughout.

Particularly of note is the perfect tiling in the bathrooms with a good fall gradient being used for water waste from the shower.

The rooms are small but well fitted out and the location nestled in between the Brisbane City and Fortitude Valley is convenient if patrons wish to flit between both. The service is great and on the whole I would rate this stay as more enjoyable than the Big 4 Caravan Park in Batchlor NT.

Room Tip: Ask for non-eastern facing rooms if you don't want to get the hot sun first up in the morning.

Stayed here for 2 nights, was close to work and easy access to the mall and other amenities. Great sleep, came home and purchased the bedding they use in hotel.
Service at the front desk was very helpful, called a cab for me and it arrived in 5 minutes
