Very close to Darling Harbour, shopping and dining. Nice and quiet. Public transport in easy reach. Staff very friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast is excellent. Highly recommend this hotel. Double apartment was very spacious and has washing machine/dryer.

I have stayed here every time i come to Sydney. Really decent hotel in a prime location. Not too busy which i like. It is so close to everything we barely used a taxi as we walked every where. The staff are 10/10. The rooms are good. Nothing luxurious but not a cheap motel either. The bathroom was a bit...

Close to Darling Harbour. Very helpful, friendly and efficient staff at reception. Nice big room but bathroom disappointing with the shower in the bath and a shower curtain not looking that good any more. Also no plug for the basin.

Mantra on Kent was the perfect base for our trip. Close to shops, restaurants and activities so we were able to walk to most of the events. Room was spacious and comfortable and the staff were extremely helpful. We will certainly be back!

We rented this room for 5 nights for a girls getaway trip. The room was very spacious and quiet. Great lounge area and TV. It was a great big space for two girls to open suitcases, get dressed, or sit down to lunch together. Nice views of the city out of the windows. The two single beds were comfortable. The...

The location and great staff make me come back to this property again and again whilst in Sydney (for both business and pleasure). However its a bit tired and a bit dated and lots of little things need attending to.

Bin was left empty with no bag. No collection of dirty towels on the ground. Left our appartments main door open. Never vacuum as a pumpkin seed was on the floor since the first day of our stay and beds were made carelessly.

Location is great, the interior styling and decor is a little utilitarian in the communal/corridor spaces but the room was perfectly adequate and stocked to a satisfactory level. Providing you are not bothered about the lack of scenic views, focus on the room and the comfort of it, which was pleasantly surprising given the remarkable value represented by the cost...

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.
