Great location, but noisy
Mantra City Central is great value for money and the location is seriously perfect! The bar in the alley way was the biggest negative to our stay. We were located on level one and stayed Saturday/Sunday night and the music and patrons were quite loud. Lucky for us, we were so tired so crashed. Definitely ask for a room on the opposite side or a higher level!

Can be noisy. Bar music and loud airco units on buildings.
Rooms at the back of the hotel and over the laneway are very noisy. At the front over little bourke, fine.

Mantra not good
Room was above lane-way that had live band playing from early afternoon until after midnight even on Sunday night . Noise was unbelievable . I realise it was coming from another establishment but a bit of forewarning would have been nice . Complimentary sugar and coffee was very scarce . Enough for one drink ? Really !!

Great location
Stayed for 2 nights. Old building smack in the centre of town. Very friendly staff. 1 bed apartment perfect for our needs. Very comfortable bed. Loved the decor. Free wifi would make it perfect. Shame it doesn't have an onsite bar like the other mantra on little Bourke. The bar in the laneway next to the hotel was very much geared at the much younger crowd, who gave us the death stare when 4 "over 50's" walked in.
