Good location for trip

Mantra Jolimont was chosen specifically for its location to Aami Park as we were attending an A League (soccer) match. It is situated close to the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Rod Laver and Hisense Arenas and Aami Park. Crossing the busy road outside the hotel to walk up to the MCG or the connecting bridges to the other arenas needs quickness but luckily has an island in the centre but it's not so bad on the weekends. When you first enter and see the steps that lead up to the reception, don't think you'll be having to take everything up the steps, the lifts are directly behind and you'll also see where the entry to the pool and gym when you do this. To the right of the entry is the cafe/restaurant the 'Boundary Line'. We were hoping to have breakfast there on the Saturday morning that we stayed as we had a 7am tour pickup for the Great Ocean Road, unfortunately, the cafe doesn't open til 8am Saturday or Sunday. The hotel is within a 10 min walk to Spring Street where you can catch trams in the free tram zone or the free visitors tram. The closest tram stop is Landsdowne Street well within 5 min walk that is one stop out of the free tram zone. Across the road from Landsdowne St stop is the Fitzroy Gardens that are an enjoyable green space for walking, jogging, looking at the displays in the conservatory or just walking through to Spring Street, the Treasury Gardens or St Patrick's Cathedral. If you need to travel on any public transport including tram travel outside of the free tram zone there are no paper tickets on Melbourne public transport, you need to purchase a 'Myki' card. It makes the public transport system smoother and I'm a fan. Our room was a very good self contained unit with the laundry cupboard sized room with a washer and dryer, just outside, that's shared between the two rooms that come off their own shared small hallway. We did have an issue where we were without lights for two of our three night stay. Luckily, the bedroom lamps could be moved and we had one in the living room and one in the bathroom that is dark with the door closed during the day as it isn't on an outside wall. Our room was next to the railway line so we did have a bit of noise that could be heard, but we still slept well as the trains lessen noticeably during the night. We didn't have free wifi and that is an issue that I'll take into account more with booking hotels. Because we were on the go so much we didn't get to use the gym or pool unfortunately, but can recommend day trips which we have done - Phillip Island to see the Penguin Parade and the Great Ocean Road. The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) has wonderful exhibits, the last 3 visits has included Jean-Paul Gaultier, the Hermitage Collection and Andy Warhol and Ai Wei Wei. The Melbourne Museum is as great visit as is ACMA at Federation Square. There is always something on in Melbourne, no matter what time of year. If you get bored, or can't find a great spot to eat in so many precincts throughout the whole city not just the cbd, then you're really hard to please.

Disappointed

The staff were friendly and helpful. However I was disappointed in the room. The kitchenette was filthy and looked like it had not been cleaned once this year. The bathroom tiles were covered in soap scum. I could see and feel the grit and scum on the tiles. It was digusting. The bathtub was dirty and had a fairly big chip on the corner. The whole room was a lot smaller than the photos shown on websites. The rooms definitely need a revamp. For the price I expected a nicer room. I have stayed in the Mantra in Darwin and the rooms were much nicer.

Handy Location for AFL but dated

The accommodation was very dated and if you are a light sleeper make sure you do not get a corner room that overlooks the bar/restaurant area. Very noisy traffic wise as well

Next to very loud train tracks.

I normally don't comment on Hotels unless I have had an excellent or in this case a very bad experience. On check in I was told that all of the parking had been taken and there was a parking lot 15min walk away. We'll my van was oversized so I could not park there. I was then told that the only place that would take it was on the other side of the city. How do I get back I asked. Her response, there are free trams. After returning quite some time later, I went to my room. If you have seen the blues brothers, and can remember Elroy's apartment (next to the train line) you will understand my next experience. A train went by right outside my window. It was so loud I had to turn the TV up. Have these people not heard of double glazed windows. Fortunately I was able to move rooms to the other side of the hotel. I could still hear the trains but they were much quieter. Room service was ineadible. Avoid this Hotel.

Busines & Pleasure

A little bit out of the main part of town but convenient for us. Big issue is train noise - so if you are a light sleeper get a roadside room. We liked the ability to open the window, but with the train noise, even at Level 7 it stayed shut for the evening. Excellent city views. Good value for money, and helpful staff on a World Cup Cricket / International Garden Show / Comedy Festival weekend.

Awesome Location

Our family were looking for a convenient place to stay, as we were going to Rod Laver Arena for a concert. This Hotel ticked all the boxes for us, location, great staff, very comfortable room, great view we were on the top floor so could see the MCG, Hiscence Arena & Rod Laver Arena. Couldn't have asked for anything better!!
