The Mantra on Kent Street in Sydney was very nice. It was in a fantastic location with just a short stroll to Darling Harbour. The room itself was very nice and spacious with a great view overlooking Darling Harbour. Plenty of room for a couple even with some small children. The bathroom was a bit tired especially around the shower... More

The hotel needs work and the advertisement of a bar and restaurant needs removing but the overall location is good which is very highly priced. The bathrooms are very outdated and a little bit of paint needed

we had a good stay, the location is excellent, although the bathroom was a little old and dirty. We did like the size of the room and the amenities in the room also were good. Thankyou for a good stay.

The location is excellent, nice and central to CBD, close to china Town and Darling Harbour. The room is a good size and has meal making and clothes washing facilities. Friendly helpful staff make this a great spot to make a base while in Sydney.

Wonderful experience. Views were amazing. Good selection for breakfast. Spa in the bathroom was a great add on. Good way to relax during the stay at Mantra. Parking as well was of no concern due to the convenience of the agreement the hotel has with the parking lot next door

Very convenient location, making it easy to get to most places in the city. Breakfast selection & service was great. Special thanks to young man from Nepal, studying hotel management, who went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed.

Only good thing was the location. Staff were friendly but the room was very dirty and the bathrooms appalling. Lots of noise from inside the hotel at night keeps you awake and rooms were not dark enough for sleeping.

Overall, good. Would stay again. Staff could have gone the extra mile in recommending places to eat etc. Disappointed that WiFi wasn't included and I had to make enquirers regarding breakfast time etc. Room service for dinner only, no restaurant. Breakfast was good, although very expensive, cheaper to eat at the cafe across the road.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
