Little Gem
This was the first time i stayed at the Mantra and it was better than i expected. The room was very modern and spacious with great decor. Located in a very busy part of the city, just beside China Town. Plenty of restaurants and bars near by.

Mum's Birthday Weekend
Location was perfect - right in the heart of Melbourne. The pre-checkin customer service received via email and phone was appreciated. Mattresses and pillows were so soft!!
My mum, sister and myself flew into Melbourne (from separate cities) to celebrate my mums birthday (and go to the Australian Open). We chose Mantra on Russell for the location and space for 3 adults. Email queries regarding airport pickup / shuttles prior to arrival were swiftly answered, and the day before arrival of my sister and mother I received a call to confirm the bed configuration to ensure all was ready for our arrival. My mum arrived first and wasn't able to check in so the staff made her comfortable and organised her a sandwich while she waited for the room to be ready. The cleaning staff were also professional and very friendly. On checking out of the accommodation my mum informed them that we opened a hotel supplied bottle of wine by accident (and not one we bought ourselves). They kindly waived the bar tab charge saying it was on the house as it was my mums birthday! So lovely of them and a great end to a wonderful weekend. The only negative thing I will say is that it took a long time for the water for a shower to heat up - and in the mornings the water was tepid at best.
