Reviewed 24 July 2014

What a great place to stay.My daughter & I had a very pleasant 2 days in a one bedroom apartment. Check in was efficient whilst our room was well appointed very clean & spacious. Our only complaint was the air conditioning vent in the bedroom was very noisy when it came on.We were on the 2ndfloor facing Jolimont road in a corner apartment so we did not have a problem with any train noise. We enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine that came with our deal. Our luggage was stored for us by the charming Nancy at reception & the staff were all very friendly & obliging.We had dinner in the restaurant & can recommend the pork belly.Breakfast was a tasty buffet especially enjoyed the little iced coffee bottles.The hotel is close enough to walk to Bridge Road for some shopping & only just a short walk to the tram or train station to thecity.
We will certainly be back to Mantra next time we visit Melbourne.Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: request a quiet room when booking

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback about your stay with us. It was fantastic to read that you and your daughter had such an enjoyable stay. It sounds like you received great service and I'll certainly be sharing your comments with the team. Was also good to read that you enjoyed your dinner & breakfast in the Boundary Line Bar & Kitchen. It sounds like our location was ideal for you too. Thank you again for your feedback, it's very much appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you're in town.

Right on the City edge this hotel offers great city views, great location near transport and is conveniently located near some of the city's best parks and gardens, river walks and the brilliant Bridge Road.
Clean, great heating (visited in the middle of Winter), good room service and amenities. On-site breakfast or do-it-yourself in the unit kitchen. I didn't use the gym as I walked along the glorious Yarra River via a footbridge and around the Birrarung Marr area. The pool is outdoors and too cold at this time of the year for a swim but overall a well equipt hotel.
For sports fans this would be ideal, a short walk to the tennis centre, MCG, Olympic Park etc and close to public transport or you could walk into the city or Richmond.
The staff were very helpful and we were able to leave our car in the car park after we checked out and then picked up our keys after lunch and some shopping in the City.
The only inconvenience was the noise from the train line that borders the hotel, a room closer to the Fitzroy Gardens side might be have been less noisy, ours faced the rail lines on one side!
Overall good value, comfortable, clean and very, very convenient.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the rail lines!

Hi Bronwyn, thank you very much for your feedback in regards to your stay with us. It sounds like you had a very satisfactory stay and enjoyed our location, service and facilities. You may not have realised our outdoor pool & spa are heated, but agree you would have to brave in the middle of a Melbourne winter. It's good to hear you enjoyed the hotel & the beautiful surrounds; we look forward to welcoming you back next time you're in Melbourne. Thanks again for your feedback.

It's getting a little old and tired, no free wifi, small flat screen TV not HD and the movie channel refused to work and very noisy if your room faces the train and the bridge. That said the unit is a great size, very large bathroom and functional kitchen. Location wise there is not much in the immediate vicinity although the city is only a 15 minute easy walk along the bridge and you are in federation Square. the MCG and Tennis Centre are only 5 minutes walk away. I stayed for one night only as was in Melbourne on business and scored a great deal $150 including buffet breakfast, bottle of wine and late check out. I called in about 10am primarily to leave my bag so as I did not have to carry it to all my meetings and as my room was ready they let me check in straight away which was good to be able to hang up clothes for the following day. Buffet breakfast was the usual hotel affair but more than adequate (although would have loved a decent coffee). Staff were very friendly and obliging, looking after my bag, calling taxis and the like. I'm sure the prices are more if there is something on in the sporting precinct, but if you can deal with the train noise and the noise from the bridge that is fitted with some sort of audio system (never had time to check out what it was all about) then exceptional value can be had.

Room Tip: Don't get a room facing the train line. If you are staying a while get your food supplies before...

Thank you for the feedback in regards to your stay with us. It's great to read that you enjoyed most aspects of your stay. The location obviously suited your needs, and as you say it's only a short stroll to the CBD, or an even shorter stroll to the closest tram stop. I apologise that you had issues with the movie system during your stay, and the Wi-Fi charge is something that's definitely being looked at for the future. We do have free internet available in our foyer which is accessible for all guests to use, but I understand that it's not as convenient as the Wi-Fi. It was good to hear that you received great service during your stay, and it sounds like you also enjoyed the Boundary Line Bar & Kitchen. Please contact us directly when you're back in Melbourne, we would love to allocate a quieter room for you next time. Thanks again for your feedback.

Kind regards,

Its the second time I have stayed there in recent years On this occassion room was a lot better
Very Clean and everything laid out correctly +Price for the room/kitchen etc for a Sunday evening was very competative
Two points to keep in mind when staying located next to busy railway network so noise can be a problem at night-- should have multi glazed windows to restrict noise, also restaurant not open Sunday and have to travel some distance to locate resturants
Parking can be a problem as small area available and first come first served

Thank you for your comments in regards to your recent stay with us. It was great to hear that you returned to discover the improvements at this property. Our 1 bedroom apartments were updated early this year, and we've been receiving great feedback. As you have mentioned, our prices are very competitive and we like to think our guests receive great value for money. I apologise that the restaurant wasn't open for you to experience on that particular Sunday. Our restaurant is open 7 days for breakfast, however closed for dinner on Sunday & Monday nights. We do however occasionally open on these particular nights if there's high occupancy due to an event close by. If it's closed our team will be able to assist with alternative restaurant options in the area, as well as food delivery service options. Thanks you again for your feedback, it's very much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you again, and please don't hesitate to contact us directly if you would like a room on the quiet side of the hotel.

Kind regards,
Dean Wilkinson

Short walk to Rod Laver Arena, MCG and The City. Great prices. Suitable for groups and families, small and large. Close to trams and trainstation. Would definitely recommend. Great bargains to be found on Wotif.com

Excellent location if you are going to the MCG or tennis in Melbourne. Our room (twin share studio) was clean and quiet on the 2nd floor. Beds and pillows need upgrading, very uncomfortable. Breakfast ok, the usual buffet stuff. Ask for a room away from the trains and you won't have trouble with noise.

Great service. This hotel is a pleasure to stay in. The location is a short walk away form the city and near the sporting hub around the MCG. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for both business and pleasure. My stay has always been great.
