Well the rooms are nice....food in restaurant is good but doesn't change at all...good for short stays.

Had some minor things left in the room on departure only to discover they can't find them. Reported the theft and received no compensation at all.

Make sure you triple check before you leave.

Like I mentioned food is good and bar service is gr8.

Prbly won't stay here next melb trip....I heard racv is awesome.

We stayed for two nights at the Mantra on Little Bourke and were not impressed. Here were our main concerns:

1. The kitchen lacked many basic utensils, including a frying pan and sharp knife. There were no sponges or scourers. When I rang housekeeping, the call was answered by reception who said they'd pass on my requests. An hour went by. I rang again and then someone turned up with a some of these items.
2. The air-conditioning in the bedroom wasn't working well and we had an uncomfortable night. I mentioned this to reception who asked what time would suit for their engineer to investigate. I suggested 1.00pm, and went to have a shower. Loud knocking made me wrap a towel around myself to see what the problem was - there was a Do Not Disturb sign on the door after all. It was the engineer, hours earlier than arranged. At least he fixed the air-conditioning.
3. The bed wasn't comfortable - two singles joined together.

At least the water-pressure was excellent and the hotel was also well-located. the restaurant downstairs was also good.

I stayed here in January 2014 for a week, one of the longest times I've stayed at a hotel, and I was very impressed. I was in Melbourne for an intensive business trip and coming "home" to Mantra Little Bourke St at the end of the day was a pleasure and really helped to wind down. The room was spacious. The lounge/kitchen area was large in itself - in fact it was bigger than the claustrophobic studio apartments you get offered at City Tempo. The bed was comfortable, there was a work desk was adequate and there were two televisions - one in the bedroom and one in the lounge. I often judge a hotel by the tea they offer in the room, and I was introduced to Aurora tea for the first time - I love Aurora tea!

The only drawbacks...I couldn't locate the foyer light switch in the bed room! Also, it got a bit dark mid-afternoon without indoor lights, but not sure what Mantra can do about this. Also, when I had breakfast at Alibi (the hotel restaurant) upon checkout, the waitress was a bit surly at the end, but maybe she was having a bad Sunday, which I guess we all have at times.

Still, I highly recommend Hotel Mantra Little Bourke Street, one of the best Mantras I've stayed at.

Rooms were great, good size and usable kitchen. Location is awesome as well, close to CBD, but far enough to not hear the traffic. Also close to great restaurants at hardware lane.
Staff are super nice.

Wonderful studio apartment - an oasis in the middle of Melbourne's CBD. Clean, spacious, views.
Very helpful staff - very convenient garage under the hotel. Very close to shops and museums.
Would recommend this to anyone.

Hotel is very local for all shops, attractions and restaurants. Room was as described on website and as expected. Only downside to room was the loud air conditioning unit, as we were on tenth floor it was in the roof space. Reported this to reception and maintenance guy came promptly bit nothing he could do. Sounded like a jet engine all night so could only sleep with ear plugs in ears, shame that this let the stay down. Check in was hassle free and very friendly staff. Big thank you goes to Tim on reception who during our stay very kindly printed off boarding passes for return flight back to New Zealand. Tim was very friendly and helpful. Overall nice place to stay, would stay again but not on tenth floor!
