Would stay again
Great location in southbank. The only real negative is the dishes- as i grabbed a plate down from the cupboard some disgusting water came off the plate onto my shirt. Also, dont go to the nearby restaurant that is along the river- 'Soho' - its terrible (no connection to mantra, just had a really terrible experience)

Sweet Memory in MEL!
We stayed for 4 nights at Mantra. The room is awesome which you will feel at home as it have everything! Even washing machine and dryer 👍🏼 The hotel location is also I would say strategic as you can take stairs at the gallery area to go to the city centre (the tram is free in the city area). The staffs are also thumbs up! My family and I will absolutely stay there again next time!

Location great, but ...
The location was great, just a stones throw from Southgate. Our room was nice, but the shower had some mould in the grouting, there were noisy people around our room. Talking loudly outside the door and kids/teenagers running up and down the hall yelling. We were not impressed by that.

Great location, apartment style was great.
Excellently located hotel, right near everything in Southbank. The apartment style room was great, but it was a little worn. Would be great to have a refresh. The lifts were not working during our stay which was frustrating but the staff were very apologetic & helpful. Rooftop pool & sauna was awesome!

Bed was very comfortable, it was centrally located, staff was very friendly.
It was great but the bath tub should have a sliding door or shower curtain so water doesn't splash too much on the floor. Wish car park for guests was free.

Good hotel but reservations were messed up
Clean, near CBD, modern
I booked a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms and I called both Agoda and the hotel directly to confirm this. However, when I arrived, I was given a 1 bathroom unit and was told that was my booking and there was no way to change the room as I arrived late after midnight and the hotel is full. Not too happy about this considering I took the effort to call from overseas in advance.
