Very centrally locatedPosted Mar 1, 2014
Pros: Size of the rooms and it's location
Cons: Update hallways and lobby
Location: Close and convenient to most places of interest. In the heart of the downtown area.
Rooms are very comfortable equipped with everything you need including a full kitchen with washer and dryer. However does not have much of a lobby.

Centrally located hotelPosted Feb 28, 2014
Pros: The location was excellent. The hotel was right next to Chinatown and so there was a variety of places to eat and drink close by. The staff was great.
Cons: Carpet could be updated
Location: The location is great. We could walk everywhere to see the Sydney sights. Numerous places to eat and drink are close by..
We stayed here for 5 days. Our efficiency apartment was comfortable and met our needs perfectly. The hotel has a great location and we could walk to see all the city sights. The hotel staff was universally pleasant and helpful. We would stay here again.

Quiet room in busy cityPosted Feb 17, 2014
Despite the hustle and bustle outside, the room was quiet and had great temperature control. Great location, close to shops, theatres, restaurants and bars (particularly Whisky and Alement - great whisky bar!). Staff very friendly and accommodating. A little pricey but you pay for location. Would return.

Great City stayPosted Feb 16, 2014
Pros: Great location, street front wasn't too busy. Front desk staff always offered a smile
Cons: Our room was right next to the pool and the door to the pool could have used a quiet self closer, a small eating table and chairs would have been good
Location: 1 min walk to the middle of Chinatown, 5 min walk to Bourke Street Mall. Central to start your day of exploring the city
Had a quick stay in Melbourne City to explore the eateries, laneways and architecture. Mantra on Russell was in a great location, easy to get to, short walk to Bourke Street mall and other main streets.

Lovely apartment, close to everythingPosted Jan 15, 2014
Pros: An attractive hotel with excellent facilities and service.
We recently stayed in a one bedroom apartment for two nights as part of a girls shopping trip. The staff were very welcoming and offered valuable information about the facilities and local restaurants. The apartment presented well, with a large kitchen and comfortable furnishings. Large bathroom with shower over bath. Everything spotlessly clean. Extra long feather pillows were the best I have slept on! Balcony offered a lovely view of the city lights at night. Walking distance to Melbourne Central, Bourke St and trams to Chapel St just one block away (Swanston St). Buffet breakfast was of excellent quality and offered a large variety of choices. Mantra on Russell is in between Little Bourke Street (Chinatown) and Lonsdale Street ( Greek Precinct). An excellent choice of hotel accommodation if you want good value for money and be close to everything.

Great Hotel, Great LocationPosted Jan 13, 2014
Pros: Great location Room - spacious + comfortable Housekeeping daily Room service - fantastic Staff - very accommodating
Cons: Some items left unclean in kitchen cupboards, I cleaned them before using. This seems to be an issue in self contained accomm. everywhere however.
My 14yo daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay in a one bedroom apartment at this lovely hotel recently. Everything was great: the room itself was so spacious and comfortable, well appointed and furnished with everything we needed - kitchen (stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher etc), dining table, washing machine, dryer, large bathroom with a bath as well as a shower, 2 tv's with selected FOX channels, a DVD player upon request, sofa, desk, a safe to lock away our valuables, balcony with a view of the city; the room service dinner was delicious - just what we needed after travelling over from Perth; the pool and spa were relaxing, the reception staff were friendly, efficient and accommodating, housekeeping staff serviced rooms daily with fresh towels, cleaning and bed-making; we didn't try the restaurant, gym or sauna. The location was really handy to most places so we walked to just about everywhere - Federation Square, Bourke Street Mall, Queen Victoria Markets, Melbourne Museum, Chinatown right next door. Access to the trams was handy also (we took the free City Circle Tram one afternoon and took a ride down to St Kilda another day). Her Majesty's Theatre was just around the corner where we saw Grease one night. So many dining options nearby - we were spoilt for choice and QV with Woolworths and Big W, chemist, etc was a 5 min walk for anything we might need. We would definitely stay again!

No complaints :)Posted Jan 9, 2014
Pros: Staff, food
Stayed for 6 nights and enjoyed all that the Mantra on Russell had to offer. Would be happy to return again, no complaints and think that the location is fantastic. Quiet, comfortable and clean. Enjoyed breakfast a couple of times and was impressed. Ate at restaurant one night and totally enjoyed every last mouthful. All staff that we encountered were friendly and very helpful.
