Great rooms. Staff very friendly and helpful. Clean. Only disappointing factor was that they charged $10 a day for wi-fi. Free wi-if is really a given now. Very convenient location. Within walking distance of downtown Melbourne.

1 bedroom apartment for two nights. Very roomy, airy well appointed and with a balcony. From the initial reception, to finalising the booking, to taking care of our bags as we shopped until the room was ready. (We arrived early). Everything was well done with professionalism and a smile. We had a package which included breakfast that I thought was well worth the extra cost. They held our bags again as we had a late afternoon flight on departure and they had a cab to the airport in no time at all... Read more

This was the first time I have stayed at Mantra on Russell - I have stayed in their exhibition Street place previously. I found their one bed apartment just great. Nicely furnished, spacious, good facilities. The breakfast was really good. But the location is a real winner. I walked to my office, to a meeting and to a restaurant for dinner - all an easy walk from this great location. OK - you have to pay for Wifi - its one of those Australian things.

Air conditioning was really good, stove/oven working fine, good range of TV channels to choose from, bathroom was spacious and the facilities - gym, spa and sauna - was in great condition and very clean.

We really enjoyed our stay at Mantra on Russell-we've stayed here many times and can't recommend it enough. My husband, daughter and I stayed in a One-Bedroom apartment. Lovely, clean refurbished rooms and very helpful staff. Room Service menu was limited, but we enjoyed our meals. A little disappointed that they don't have Fox Footy on TV-but that is a very small point. Great to have kitchen and laundry facilities. Close to shopping and public transport.

It was a spur of the moment decision to meet friends from Qld in Melbourne at the weekend. Staff at the Mantra on little Bourke at were more than helpful as they were full so they gave me the ph number of the Mantra on Russell street.

Shower was awful, no water pressure and impossible to get temperature right, It was either boiling hot or cold. A good shower is very important!! Staff were very helpful and lovely at reception. Room was a good size but a bit grotty. Cleaners didn't do a very good job, left bags of rubbish in the room rather than removing them, maybe they forgot? Location good, restaurant expensive and food very average.

In a great location, with Chinatown and the theatre district at your doorstep. Also within walking distance of the MCG. The room was clean and well appointed & the air conditioning system was very effective. My only issue was the speed of check-in and check-out. There simply weren't enough people on front desk to cope at peak times.

The 2 bedroom apartment is not at all a 2 brm apartment. It is two completely separate rooms next to each other. Description for this accommodation is misleading and it is much smaller than it appears in photos. It should not be advertised as a 2brm apartment as it isn't and was not worth the extra money to have one room that couldn't access the lounge room unless the other occupants were in their room to let them in. Room key wouldn't open each other's rooms. Completely inappropriate for famil... Read more

We had short family break and have stayed here previously. We liked the central location of the hotel and the spacious 1 bedroom makes it suitable for families. The kitchen utilities was a little disappointing as it was not very well stocked and there was not enough to cutlery for 3 people. The bedroom only has a double bed but are comfortable enough. The renovated rooms looks and feel great.

Stayed at Mantra 16/07 for 1 night. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was a very spacious room with separate lounge. Large couch plus a single arm chair, fully equipped kitchen, and bedroom with T.V also. Pool area could be improved as the spa was not very warm and same with the sauna, which was a little disappointing. Great buffet breakfast which was included in our tariff. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.
