The Mantra on Russell is conveniently located close to everything you would want to see in Melbourne and the staff are friendly and eager to help. The breakfast at 'Home' was particularly inviting and the young girls on staff were so accommodating and friendly meeting us with a bright cheery smile every morning.

Stayed here for our trip to melbourne to watch a couple of games of afl. The location was perfect for this . The room was comfortable and had everything we needed even a washing machine and drier. no washing when we got home. There are lots of restaurants and shopping centres close by and of course tram stops are close...

I have stayed a few of the Mantra locations, and Russell Street is one of my favorites. Located at the corner of Russell and Lonsdale Sts, you have the immense location of some of the best bars in the Melbourne CBD, and also for your theater lovers, are in luck as it's one block from Her Majesty s Theater and...

Pleasant staff, good location and all amenities required. Have stayed here in the past and will stay here again. Like the fact that it is possible to get free wifi - a must now for frequent business travel.

We had a lovely stay. The hotel is in a prime position for a walk through China Town and the rest of the city. The staff are really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Fill up on a good breakfast and quality coffee and enjoy.

Great quiet room, upgrade which we received was very much appreciated. Friendly staff at check in and bar. Location and closeness to restaurants and shopping a huge positive. Perhaps a discounted parking rate for stays of more than one night could be considered?

Great location! All the major attractions and eateries (Chinatown, CBD, Southbank) within walking distance or accessible via public transport. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable apartment for our one week stay in Melbourne. The staff were great and helpful and will definitely stay again when we are at Melbourne!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
