“Great location, bathroom much to be desired”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Stayed for a few nights over a weekend. The location is great, easy walk to city, china town, restaurants and AFL stadiums. The room is huge, the bed super comfy, sheets were changed daily and the floor was so sticky from cleaning products, it was definitely clean. Then there was the bathroom, the major let down, the show is really small and there was mould on the inside of the shower door and growing up the glass. It looks like it was either an old hotel/apartment block and the bathrooms have had minimal renovation. Staff were friendly and helpful. Other things to mention, the mini bar had opened packages on arrival (no charge to us thank goodness) and there was no guide for phone numbers e.g. reception etc. All in all it was a pleasant stay, however would question staying again unless major bathroom renos or it was a super cheap price. A bit disappointing as I have stayed with Mantra in Sydney and it was fantastic.

Room Tip: Unless it is super cheap or the bathroom has been upgraded, have a look around!

Went to Melbourne to see an AFL game and stayed here. Easy walk to either stadium. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the hotel was clean. Rooms were very spacious with a kitchenette. Furniture was a little scratched and a few other cosmetics were seen. My only fault I could find was the shower was a little small. Otherwise it was a very good hotel

Room Tip: higher floors are the better way to go

We had room with two queen beds which was what we neded for 3 people. Beds did seem a bit small and dipped in the middle and fairly hard on the edge. The room was great though with 2 TV's, kitchenette. Staff were friendly and helpful and we were able to store luggage on departure until late flight. Located just near Hardware Lane and close to mall and free City Circle tram. Good quiet location at night

Apartment style rooms in a central location. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Apartments were clean, although the bathroom was a bit dated. Comfortable bed and everything you would need in the kitchen.

Enjoyed four nights at the Mantra on Little Bourke. Great location - close to plenty of shopping and restaurants. Good sized rooms and comfortable beds. Expensive wi-fi. Would be happy to stay there again - good value for money.

I would have stayed at The Adelphi Hotel as it is my favorite, but it was all booked up. I went with Mantra on Little Bourke for it's location. The staff at the reception were always smiling and being helpful, the rooms are REALLY BIG, not what I expected.. It's like having your own little apartment, you have big bathroom with tub and shower, you have a kitchen with everything you need to eat in, a dining room, a living room, and then a separate bed with the closet in it's own quarters with TV. I specially liked the location as it was walking distance to everywhere I needed to go, I also enjoyed their downstairs restaurant, good food and good value. Also if you walk a bit to the left you'll find movida and other great restaurants and cafes.

2 out of 2 times we've stayed here whole building fire alarms have gone off in the middle of the night only to be false alarms. Don't know if that's a regular occurrence or just unlucky for us. Otherwise decent location and close to the CBD. Parking and breakfast good also.
