Sydney Appartment Surprise

Posted Apr 12, 2014
Pros: Central location.
Cons: Happy with all aspects.
Location: Everything appeared to be within a 10-15 minute walk (some of the streets are fairly steep but we needed the exercise!).
My wife and I planned a short visit (3 nights) to Sydney en-route to NZ. We were very pleased with the location of the Hotel being close to all the tourist attractions. Having never been to Aus before we found by using the Mantra we quickly got our bearings and jet-lag sorted. The accommodation was much more spacious than expected and we were very surprised to find it had a fully equipped kitchen and laundry. The Hotel Staff were very helpful and we left Sydney fully refreshed and ready for our onward journey.

Hotel very central to all facilities.

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, hotel room service excellent.
Cons: The hotel could do with an exterior waterblast. The deck was a bit dirty.
Location: Great location. 'Pancakes on the Rocks' was recommended for breakfast - I would take that out of your book as it wasn't very good.
Very comfortable hotel and good facilities. The balcony was a plus and the pool area very nice.

easy walking distance to everything

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Pros: very helpful staff, great café in lobby
Cons: shower was not as clean as it could be
never been to Sydney before so was a little nervous about where to stay as we did not want to hire a car, The Mantra is less than 5 min from train station, a easy 10 min walk to the harbour and fantastic water front places to eat, 15 min walk to bridge and opera house and the Sydney tower. The room was fantastic but no view, so if you want a view ask when you book. We arrived early and expected to be told the room was not ready, but we were given the keys 2 hours early, what a relief. The room was large and would be perfect for longer stays(we only stayed 2 nights) with a full kitchen, dining, laundry facilities.

Convenient Location in well maintained Hotel

Posted Mar 11, 2014
Cons: WiFi should be standard is this day and age.
Good location to explore sydney, clean small suites. Pricey breakfast considering there are a lot of options available nearby. Small hotel pool to relax by. Only recommendation is that WiFi should be included

Central, but a lil overpriced.

Posted Mar 5, 2014
Pros: Central location between the Rocks & Darling Harbour. Staff were amazing and bed was comfy.
Cons: Upgrade the tv's
Location: The rocks and darling harbour are best for dining and cocktails etc
Central location between the Rocks & Darling Harbour. Room was nice, but I don't think it is worth the price. Fridge kept freezing things despite turning it to "warmer". Laundry door kept getting stuck. Shower was nice, however not sunken so water gets everywhere. The tv..... Solid 50cm tv, not flat screen, really? Staff were amazing and bed was comfy. We had a bottle of white wine and they couldn't replace it in the mini bar.
