Once again a lovely stay. This time for business not pleasure. As always clean rooms .Great spot only down side parking is limited so need to check in and leave car there until check out.Will stay again.

Room Tip: Can be a little noisy if on the train tracks side.

Good morning,

Thank you for your review of Mantra on Jolimont! I am glad you enjoyed your time here. While being just on the fringe of the CBD, we do have good access to public transport and are within easy striking distance of bustling shopping areas in Richmond and South Yarra.

We'll look forward to welcoming you back!

We enjoyed our stay at the Mantra on Jolimont. 2/8/14. The price was affordable.
This was very close to MCG, perfect for us as we were off to the footy & had business to attend.. The room we had was very cosy, clean & tidy. They are all you need if you just want overnight stay. Very friendly staff.
We will definitely be staying again..

Thank you all.

Room Tip: Be sure to check the comfort of bedding. Could have been more pillows in the room

Great service from reception, we felt welcomed from the beginning. We had a two bedroom apartment and although happy with the price we thought $25 per night for parking ( we stayed for a week) very expensive. Ask for your room to be away from the train tracks, the trains are very loud. Surprisingly our room was serviced daily and it was nice to return from a day of Melbourne shopping to a nice neat room. Thanks everybody apart from the noisy trains we enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: Stay away from the train tracks!!

Stayed for four nights in a studio room. The hotel was conveniently located on the edge of the city, with trams nearby and a short walk into the city. Staff were very accommodating, moving us to a quieter room away from the noise of the train line and organising airport transfers. While a little dated, the room was clean, functional and good value. The outdoor pool and spa were also a nice addition and heated even in winter.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool and away from the train lines if you are a light sleeper.

Stayed here for 4 nights for a short trip from Adelaide. Room very outdated - small tv with no DVD player and unable to connect hard drive via USB. Hard and uncomfortable bed and pillows - ask reception for softer pillows and they don't have any. No free wifi - $20 for 3gb and it's slow and will not connect all the time in our room. Shower very touchy.

Good location and good price.

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback in regards to your stay. Happy to hear you enjoyed our location and received a good price, however obviously disappointing to read about the issues you had, especially in regards to Wi-Fi and the pillows. I apologise that you had issues in regards to slow Wi-Fi. We're not far away from receiving an upgrade to our Wi-Fi system, which should rectify this issue. Our current system is not always like this, but occasionally we do unfortunately have speed issues, which thankfully will be rectified in the near future. You may not have been aware that we have an internet kiosk in the hotel foyer which is free for guests to use and has USB connection & printing facilities. I do understand that this is not as convenient as Wi-Fi from the comfort of your room though. We appreciate your feedback in regards to the pillows and this is something we will investigate further. In regards to the room being out-dated, it sounds like you may have stayed in one of our studio rooms which have a planned refurbishment in the near future. Our 1 bedroom apartments received an update and refresh earlier this year, and the studios are next on the agenda. Please contact me if you consider staying with us again, and I'll ensure a much more enjoyable stay for your next visit. Thanks again for your feedback.
Kind regards,
Dean Wilkinson

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
