Great Location, excellent service. Hotel staff was very flexible with our schedule. Due to Covid, the waiting time for the Lift was quite long.

Only sour not is the noise

Johannes K. Couples - 03/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great location, excellent staff and a really nice, well maintained apartment. The only problem was the noise pollution on Saturday night. It went on until the early hours and truly sounded like there was a party right on the balcony. Unfortunately that alone would stop me from returning to the Mantra on Russell. Otherwise a great place. Pity about the noise. Try some double glazing.

Well located and clean

In room 1709 unable to sleep for 2 nights until having to move mattress of bed into lounge area, due to yelling, talking and bottles being picked up by garbage truck unable to use fold out bed as it was broken. For the money we spent this hotel was definately not worth the value

Very central, right in the middle of the city, close to all amenities. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and laundry. It was very comfortable and clean although there was a draft coming from the sliding doors leading to the balcony. It was noticeable at night.

Dear Diana, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely, Aaron Glenn Hotel Manager

Trying to book direct, as a member, was disappointing. Price given was substantially higher than When I phoned, my call was directed to a call center, who were of no help. I was told, on this visit, to download the app and I'll get better price. I'll try next time. As a visitor from Perth I was contacted by Hotel to remind me to get tested and isolate until I received negative result. Then a letter was placed under my door explaining restrictions/procedures etc., which I complied with. My concern was that I know other visitors from Perth who were not contacted and did not receive the letter. Your system needs to be improved to ensure all guests are identified. On one occasion empty tissue box not replaced and new towels were of poor quality and had a musty smell.

Dear Domenic, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your time at Mantra on Russell Melbourne.

Glenn6849 12/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Recently stayed at The Mantra on Russell. Location was great to access the city of Melbourne. The room was clean and spacious. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and only to help out when required. The only negative for our stay was the tv in the lounge room - when it was turned on or off at full volume you got Boom Bom even when the remote was muted. So if you were up early and your partner was still sleeping it was loud enough to wake every body up. Would highly recommend this hotel and will stay again when in Melbourne

Dear Glenn6849, Thank you for sharing with us your recent experience and I am so pleased it was a positive one and that you would choose to stay with us again. A valid point in regards to the TV which may be an easy fix so I will ask our Building Manager to take a look at this to see if there is anything we can do in the programming. Again many thanks. Regards, Aaron

IndhiranP 10/03/2021 TripAdvisor review

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff and fascilities were excellent. Great location. Very close to public transport and all shoping. Enjoyed the evening walks to the city centre and the vibrant China town. Will definately visit again.

Dear IndhiranP, Thank you for the review and for highlighting how close we are to everything but nothing more important than the yummy food outside the doors of the hotel in Chinatown. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Regards. Aaron

Excellent location, so close to shops and easy to get to by tram. Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was a surprise, very spacious and everything I needed. It was nice to receive the thoughtful gifts and I appreciated the note from the staff who serviced the room. Would stay again.

Dear Fearless776828, Thank you for the review and thank you for recognizing the note left by our Housekeeping team which is their seal of approval so to speak! I am pleased you enjoyed your stay, our location and our wonderful team members. Until next time. Aaron

Eddie B 16/02/2021 TripAdvisor review

Had a nice stay at Mantra, Russell St, was upgraded to the 18th floor with great views, very spacious room, love that they are more apartment style than just hotel style with separate lounge room. Was left some wine and sweets which were great! Close to theatres and plenty of parking downstairs also.

Dear Eddie B, Thank you for the wonderful review and thank you for sharing your feedback. I am so pleased your stay was a positive one and you enjoyed the upgrade to the top floor and I agree the views of Melbourne are inspiring from up there! Again thank you! Aaron
