We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, the location is brilliant, the rooms have ample space and we were very comfortable. I was a little disappointed with the reception area as it was so small, however the staff were extremely helpful and that after all is what matters the most.

Had a good stay here for the last 4 days.
We pre booked the car spot and a portacot for our baby.
The hotel is in a great location, especially close to the fantastic markets.
We were on level 5 and our room had great views from the lounge room.
We would stay here again!

It's always such a pleasure to read that our guests enjoyed their stay with us. The location is such a positive and receives such great feedback. Its always good to prebook parking as it is limited although parking at night and over the weekend is free around the hotel.

The closest competitor to the Mantra would be the Old Woolstore. Both are a similar price, with similar style rooms. I have stayed here twice now, in 2 different rooms and find it a good option in Hobart.

The Good:
- location is great
- good size rooms
- self contained apartments which I like
- polite staff
- complimentary newspapers and good magazine options
- limited foxtel channels available in lounge room TV

The Bad
- lower rooms can be dark, with no views.
- parking is very limited, and they charge for it

If you are a reliant on a car and don't mind paying extra to park, this is a great hotel to stay and I prefer it to the woolstore. The carpark is small, and if you have a large car it can be difficult to navigate the underground carpark. To me, this is outweighed by the location and everything around Hobart is within walking distance.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up - there is more chance of getting a view.

We have 14 carspots for 53 apartments so parking is limited and always a good idea to prebook a car spot if and where possible.

Arrived at the hotel and were met with very friendly, efficient, and complete administration service for the apartment hotel. The apartment was very roomy indeed. The lounge room was huge although not that interesting in design. Very standard but good TV service and slick kitchen facility. The bedroom (2 single beds), was comfortable and neat and clean bathroom/toilet. We had to ask nearly every day (stayed 4 days) for more soap, more shower gel. Otherwise OK.. There was not an over abundance in the kitchen either, but near enough. The price was very reasonable and the traffic noise was nil. However, the occupants of the room next to us continuously banged their main entry door. Annoying. All-in-all, it was of a very reasonable standard. The service 100%. I would recommend it. Very handy to transport and Salamanca markets. Nice park opposite the hotel. However, Hobart has so many one way streets and I found difficult to navigate.

This was a very spacious room, I think correctly called a one-bedroom apartment. The entry is the bedroom, without windows, flows into a kitchenette and very large living area. Unfortunately, this particular apartment didn't have big windows, so if you want/need a bright and open room this isn't really the thing.
The kitchenette didn't have a stove-top - which I'd been used to in Mantra apartments. I think the place is set-up for flying visits, OK for sleep and comfortable enough but this end of the building was dark and in some respects dingy.
Pre-booked parking is a must.
The one thing I noticed is that the inside of the apartment does not have a separate lock or chain mechanism - I would have thought most solo travellers especially female might consider this essential regardless of the type of security at the front door.

Room Tip: I suspect the executive apartments overlooking the park have bigger windows and more light.

It was good to read that you enjoyed the size of the apartments and have to agree that not all of the apartments have windows in the bedrooms and some have more windows in the lounge area than others.

The kitchenettes dont have cooktops so we have tried to counter this by having convection/microwave ovens and an electric frypan in each apartment for those easy to prepare meals.

Thank you for bringing the door latch to my attention and is something I will look into in the near future.

I look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to Mantra One Sandy Bay in the near future.

Stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip. It's located just on the edge of the city next to Salamanca Place with heaps of great restaurants and amazing food. Getting into the city centre is about a short 10min walk. The cab ride from the airport was around $50.
The room consists of a very big lounge area and a kitchen as well as washing/dryer all-in-one and an iron. This place is perfect for business and private trips alike.
Staff are also very friendly. If you are checking in after hours, you need to call a number using the phone at the door. They will tell you the locker code located next to the door which will have your room key.
Rooms are also very quiet. I stayed on the third floor overlooking the main road but couldn't hear any noises at night.
Overall, very enjoyable stay and would definitely stay here again even with the family.
