    Great little hotel and friendly staff”

    Hi - I have stayed here for work and leisure and its always a pleasure to be back. Special mention to Campbell for his service and outstanding customer service. He even left a box of choc for me as he couldn't give me the room i requested. Always greets with a smile and i would say he could be the face of Mantra! The location is next to emporium shops and walking distance to china town and alot of great restaurants. THe only draw back is that each room is different in style and not the same. And there is no car park in the premises. About 5 minute walk to the car park.. and if it rains then its an issue carrying hte bags etc. Highly recommend this hotel.

    Reviewed July 17, 2019

    Hi Krishanthi, Thank you so much for your feedback. I will be sure to pass your kind words onto Campbell, I am sure he will greatly appreciate them. Unfortunately our location is a blessing, but it can also make parking options quite tricky and we do understand the walk can be tricky with weather or luggage. We hope to see you again the next time you visit Melbourne. Warm regards, Stephen Dalton Assistant Manager

    Pleasant Surprise”

    Got two rooms. One was a loft and the other was a usual room. It was great! Spacious, easily accessible and for the loft the room is nicely separated from the living area with a door. The room comes with a kitchenette, fridge, microwave oven, toaster and the usual coffee/tea amenities. Location is also great. Smack in the city centre

    Unexpected Surprise”

    Got the loft room and it was fantastic. Bed on one side, the livnig space in the other. The respective areas are separated by doors which help block out the light. The rooms are spacious and the area comes with a microwave oven, toaster, fridge and the usual coffee/tea amenities. Strongly recommended.

    Best location in Melbourne”

    The hotel was beautiful if you are into a heritage/vintage kind of look. I love the windows and very nice balcony with good view. It was a loft style studio which is super spacious comparing to a standard hotel room. It was also very clean. The location is the best, super convenient, right in the centre. Definitely stay there again if we are back in Melbourne.

    Great hotel, clean, great people. the location is second to none, easy access to trams and all public transport. I have booked this place for next week and also for the week after Christmas for work. Easy to get to from the airport and easy access to al that the city has to offer. Recommend grabbing the free tram that goes around the city and getting off at Flagstaff Gardens for the Victoria market (About 10 minutes from the hotel)but take a big bag..

    The location is excellent if u like to be in the city centre for shopping. Plenty of food options nearby too. The only issue I have was with the late night check-in. We need to press a call button when we arrived because it was past midnight and we waited for a good 10 minutes before someone answered the call. Hope that can be improved.

    In CBD, location is everything and Mantra City Central smacks right at the heart of Melbourne City. Just do note, if you're driving, the parking is ard 150m away and parking fee ain't cheap for a day (Cost me avg 60aud per day. ) Room is clean and exceptional quiet , even though we stayed on the 2nd floor. Staff is friendly as well as I was able to borrowed an umbrella to shelter myself to the carpark to collect my car before returning.

    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!
