Mantra on Jolimont
Ranked #95 of 161 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed 15 August 2017

The hotel has apartments and rooms, is just outside the CBD (but close to a tram stop).

What you need to know is hat a very busy train junction is right behind the hotel and that early morning is a nightmare for train noise.

However, this hotel is still worthy of a mention because it is very well located and very cheap.

With prior knowledge, you could make a phone booking and ask for a room or apartment on the side of the building least affected.

The apartments are very handy as you can do some meals at "home".

The rooms are adequate but might be considered a little wor. The staff were very helpful although housekeeping were a bit lax when making beds and cleaning.

Room Tip: On the Jolimont road side of the hotel, furthest from the railway lines!

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff are great and our 1 bedroom King room apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location of this hotel when going to a football game at the MCG is ideal and only a short walk into the city! Definitely recommend!

Wear comfortable walking shoes, I didn't and I still was able to walk to the tram stop.
The Pool is warm and the spa is hot but be prepared to be at the mercy of the elements
We were there one night but did not use the gym found time not enough

Hi sandysE910JW,

Thank you for taking the time to review Mantra on Jolimont. It sounds that it may have been a cold and rainy Melbourne stay. I do hope that we turn on the weather the next time you visit.

Great walking distance to Hisense Arena. Didn't hear any sound from outside. Rooms were decent size. Not too far from the city. Would stay here again if I was to attend another event at Hisense Arena.
Skybus doesn't do hotel transfer to this hotel - it's about 20min walk from Southern Cross Station.

Loved the proximity to the city and sporting facilities.
Apartment was well appointed and private.
Staff were very obliging; nothing was too much trouble.
Lovely meals with late finishing time for breakfast.
