We had a very spacious and well appointed 1 bedroom apartment. Fully self contained with modern kitchen & laundry facilities. In addition, it has gym, bar and restaurant facilities. The central location is ideal and makes everything in the CBD within walking distance. On top of that, the pricing was extremely reasonable. Would definitely recommend this and will be sure...

The operator is friendly and helps a lot. It was nice and clean in the room. We used to book the same hotel before so we will be loyalty to Mantra next time. Hope Mantra could offer loyalty customers a better rate in the future!

Friendly and very helpful staff, great room, only drawback was no free wifi which I think all hotels should provide these days. Really quiet room, did not even hear other guests. Will definitely stay again.

Mantra is a great affordable hotel. Rooms are spacious and kitchen comes in handy. Rooms are clean and bed is very comfortable. Although, the bathroom needs a serious update. All rooms have the shower/bath connected which I find is very unpleasant and can be slippery and hard to get in/out of. Past few visits have had a shocking view of...

Great place to stay for a few days if needing to be in Melbourne CBD. Great room size with excellent room furnishings and a very comfortable bed for a great night sleep. Close to most things with public transport not far away. Well worth a try.

We had a two night stay at Mantra on Russell. The check in was quick and it is handy that the car park lift can take you straight to your floor. The buffet breakfast is ok and we found the staff very friendly. On the down side there is no free internet and buying it is expensive. $19.95 to watch...

I do a lot of travelling and funnily enough I've stayed here many times. Due to having to run small meetings 2x per year. Every time I forget and book again I get reminded why I shouldn't come here. Management here are so unfriendly and unhelpful to sort any issues or do anything to help their customers. Like flogging a...

Not enough towels. Sparse toiletries. Inadequate linen. Unacceptable. Location is great but the housekeeping was disappointing. lots of SMS spam about offers at the restaurant. Aircon a bit too strong for the room

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.
