Mantra Southbank

A little disappointed this trip, small things but not what you expect when you pay $240 a night. Bathroom sink did not drain (took a very long time), there was a hole in the bathroom door, no potato peeler or fry pan in the kitchen. I also had a room on city road which was pretty noisy.

Wow we loved it

We had a wonderful time. Are room was better than we expected with a kitchen and plenty of space. We thought it was just going to be a room with an ensuite. 2 teenagers slept on fold out sofa lounge and we had a separate room. Had everything we needed. Kids loved the pool and i loved relaxing in the spa. Breakfast was nice and was included which was great. Not one complaint from us. It was so close to everything. We caught the train to flinders st and it was a short work to hotel and everything else.

Great location plus friendly staffs

Everything was fantastic apart from one sad thing that you have to pay $25 per night for parking which is just too much after the standard room price that we paid. Apart from that the smile in the reception from the staffs and all other facilities are reasons to go back to this hotel. Great stuff Sashank

Melbourne trip

Hotel is very convenient to Melbourne CBD, Art Gallery and Southbank for restaurants and shops. Staff were helpful and polite. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and one bathroom. Very noisy even though we were on the 12th floor. You could hear the traffic on City Road all night. Would be best to have a room away from the city side because of this. A bit pricey but we had the advantage of being close to the city. We didn't have breakfast there but it looked good and well priced. Parking was available.

Turn right at theatre, next door to Flinders Station, go Upstairs, follow signs round and down under bridge to Mantra. Then easy walk to Southbank.

2 day break

We were upgraded to 2 bedroom apartment, which was very roomy and comfortable. Location great to DFO Southbank, Rod Laver Arena, Hamer Hall and Flinders St Station, and CBD. Plenty of choice of restaurants nearby. Hotel breakfast fantastic, and the staff from front of house to cleaning staff, very helpful. Definitely stay there again. Casino nearby.

Sister's Surprise 60th

The Mantra Southbank was in an excellent location in close proximity to Southbank Cafe's, Restaurants and a short walk to the Casino and Aquarium. A stroll across the bridge and in to the CBD, Flinders Street Train Station and shopping complex. Enjoyed our stay, apartment was comfy and clean and were given a room on arrival which was only 9:30 am. Breakfast was included and had a lovely buffet breakfast suited to all. Only negative would have to be the bathroom that was quite large but looked like a hospital bathroom with a curved shower curtain, a very tiny basin and hand rails everywhere but no cupboards or drawers or vanity to place any toiletries on.

Good rooms but Noisy

The room was pretty good and we have found Mantra is consistent. However we overlooked city road and both the lounge room and main bedroom was on city road and had a lot of road noise. And that was on the 10th floor.
