Perfect location and great hotel

Posted Jun 1, 2017
The Mantra on Bond street was a very comfortable, clean and conveniently located hotel. Situated only minutes walk from the harbor and with very generous room sizes, I will be making sure I stay here on my following trips to Sydney!

Great hotel and so central

Posted May 28, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Room safe access by swipe card; prefer pin access for better security. More incentive for in-house guests to use restaurant; discount days?
Location: Close to Wynyard Station, plenty of dining options close by - both dine in and take out. Circular Quay 5 minute walk, Darling Harbour 20 minute walk
We spent a week in a recently refurbished Executive Studio at this property and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Check in and out went quick; they even let us into our room when we arrived early at 11am. No request was too much trouble for the front desk staff, rooms were cleaned to high standard daily, and the facilities were great. Fully equipped kitchen and also clothes washer and dryer in the room made this the ideal 'home away from home'. Had a couple of nice swims in the rooftop pool (spa was cold); also has a good gym. The location was perfect for us being just across the road from Wynyard Station, a 5 minute walk to Circular Quay, and plenty shopping close by (clothing, food and beverage). We will defiantly choose this hotel next time we visit Sydney.

Great for three nights

Posted May 20, 2017
Pros: Room size and location.
Location: Within walking distance from the Pitt Street Mall, Circular Quay and the Rocks, and the train station
Mantra Bond Street was chosen because we wanted more room and space to make our own breakfast as we were staying three nights over the Mothers Day weekend. The apartment was great with plenty of space and a well equipped kitchen. Perfectly located about 5 minutes walk from Wynyard Station which was where the train from the Airport arrived. Most enjoyable stay.

Perfect position

Posted May 14, 2017
Pros: Great position and friendly, attentive staff.
Cons: There was no information folder to explain anything about room service/local attractions. Also would have liked a coffee machine of some sort.
Location: Close to the Rocks, Circular Quay and most galleries & museums within walking distance.
Our two bedroom apartment came with full kitchen and laundry appliances. Perfectly positioned close to Circular Quay and the Rocks. Refurbishments had a few problems however, with an inconveniently placed loo. Staff were fantastic and were wonderfully helpful which made the stay an extremely pleasant one.

Hi Allen. Thank you for the positive comments regarding the team at 2 Bond Street; customer service is definitely their passion. In regards to the folder please accept my sincerest apologies, we do have an electronic compendium on the TV with all available hotel information. I will reiterate with the team this needs to mentioned on check in. Hope to welcome you back again soon.

Pay a little extra to go somewhere else...

Posted May 12, 2017
Pros: The location is pretty great and the kitchen was well stocked. close to harbor. But there are quite a few that are in the area.
Cons: clean the carpets in the halls by the elevators. so dirty,. gross
Location: close to amazing shopping, harbor, the rocks, maritime museum,
as most hotels do when you book with Expedia we were put in a bad room to start with a view of a brick wall. had to make a fuss to get moved. they rip you off for wifi... that barely works. In this day and age charging for wifi - motel 8 includes wifi? they say the hot tub is heated - it's not. the pool in the pictures is not worth going to if you're not there in summer. It's freezing cold. place is kinda old an dirty - they skipped room cleaning one day... pass on this place...

Great choice

Posted May 11, 2017
Pros: Great little apartment, good location, helpful staff.
Location: Short walk to downtown and public transport, close to supermarket to get needed groceries.
This suited us perfectly as we were able to prepare our own food when we needed and had all items needed supplied by the hotel as well as dishwashing items needed to keep clean. Having a laundry inhouse and detergents was a big bonus. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Hotel was ideally situated for touring downtown Sydney. We used public transport.

Great hotel in an awesome location

Posted May 6, 2017
i had a studio apartment on 11th floor. Comes with very nice kitchen facilities such as microwave, stove, utensils etc. The toilet had a washing machine and ironing board as well. The cafe serves delicious dinners too! Staff at the hotel and cafe are very nice. very near to wynyard train station. Also a nice walkable distance to places such as circular quay, shopping malls and the town hall area. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Sydney.
