We had a great stay at the Mantra, at all times the staff were friendly. The location was ideal, we did lots of walking around the city and towards the end of our stay enjoyed the free trams in the City Circle. Would certainly visit here again.

As stated before, disappointing arrangement. Three of us felt congested in an One room apartment. Your staff should offer us a two room upgrade which we are most willing to pay extra for more comfortable resident.

Good Afternoon Albert, Thanks for the review and the feedback on your recent stay with us at Mantra Southbank. 3persons in our 1 bedroom Apartments is definitely utilizing the 'extra bed' option.

Great location, 2 bedroom apartment. Spacious lounge & dining area, has a balcony you can stand on only. Very clean with a well equiped kitchen. Shower over bath good hairdryer, body wash, shampoo, conditioner and body moisturiser supplied. I would definitely stay here again just a short walk to Southbank and city sites. Breakfast downstairs in restaurant was included.

The Mantra City Road was very convenient to both Southbank and the CBD. The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and pleasant. The apartment was small but clean and had all the essentials. The pool and spa on the 18th floor was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will return.

We had a great stay and the location was perfect for our visit as we were able to walk to the stadium to watch the soccer match and only a short walk to restaurants and shops. Rooms were clean and functional.

Could not reduce the temperature in the room, to hot to sleep and not able to access free wifi all the time. Clean room and good location. Shampoo was great. No tv in bedroom. Elevator very slow spent a lot of time waiting for it.

Good quality accommodation ideally located to Southbank and a short stroll to the city and MCG. A little bit of road noise but that's to be expected in an inner city room. Friendly staff, clean and good size rooms.
