Reviewed 23 April 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights over Easter. Booked last minute as we drove into Adelaide. We booked a studio apartment for 2 nights at $166 a night including parking. Checked in room was great for a couple very fresh and modern. Good for a few nights might be a bit small for a week. Bathroom was roomy and had everything you need not as modern as the room. Great location right on the main drag of Rundle mall and street but very quite for a goods night sleep. Creina at reception was fantastic giving us direction on the best restaurants and places to see.

Traveling with 4 adults, we booked the family room. Rooms were clean and spacious with kitchenette and laundry area.
Walking distance to Rundle mall. Free internet in front of the reception, brochures and maps available.

Drawback was the kitchenette only provided with 1 pot and 1 pan. And too small!
We came from Victor Harbor, and we still had a bag of pipis. Took me some time to cook all of them.

But overall, comfortable place to stay. Definitely will stay here again!

We travelled to Adelaide to see the Rolling Stones but they cancelled their concert. We decided to continue our stay seeing as we had never visited Adelaide before. The lady who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to a 2 bed apartment. The room was great, really spacious with lots of balconies. The room was also clean. The location was excellent, near to Rundle Mall where many of the restaurants and bars are. The only downside was one guest room had a loud party on the Saturday night. This is not the hotels fault, I didn't complain (although I wish I had as at 5am, the party was still going). Overall, it was a good stay and will most likely stay here again when the Rolling stones hopefully reschedule their concert later in the year.

My BFF and I had a girlie night out, and chose the Mantra on Frome. We were met at the hotel by amazingly friendly staff, who couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. They upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite - as they knew we had a BIG night planned!! The suite was gorgeous - clean and modern with amenities all provided. Location was absolutely perfect for us - right in the heart of all the action. We can't say enough about the staff - everyone was super friendly, from reception, to housekeeping and the General Manager, Daniel. Customer service is something that I value above all else - and these guys deserve all the recognition they can get. Thanks guys - we will be back for our next BIG night out!!

We stayed for a Saturday and Sunday night and the studio apartment was fantastic - clean, spacious, classy fit-out and colour scheme, well appointed with good bed, sofa and coffee table, TV, table and 2 chairs, a good bathroom and kitchenette (microwave and fridge + sink but not full stove). Its position is fantastic, right in the trendy/arty East End, full of restaurants, cafes, good shops, two cinemas, clubs and pubs. Also near the universities and a quick walk to Rundle Mall, the Festival Centre, etc. We were there for last weekend of the Adelaide Festival and Fringe, yet there was virtually no street noise inside. The staff were great - welcoming and helpful. I'd definitely say gay-friendly. Also great for us as there is great value onsite parking.

I stayed at the Mantra on Frome while on a personal trip to Adelaide. I found it on Tripadvisor and liked its relatively central location and the positive comments in previous reviews. The hotel was indeed very nice: it looks to have been renovated fairly recently, and the rooms are very nicely decorated and kept very clean. To my surprise, although my room was just above the hotel's restaurant, which played music until late, I heard no sound from it and was able to sleep well. I have to join the chorus of boos regarding the hotel's internet charges. I can understand the hotel charging extra for users who download over a certain amount, but I would have expected that a certain amount of bandwidth would be included in the room price automatically.

We stayed here for the Bruce Springsteen concert. We were met by very friendly/happy & helpful staff. Our 3 bedroom apartment was clean, big & very comfortable.
We will definitely be back. Customer goes a long way and in the busy lifestyle these days, I was very impressed. We will be back.
