Very good 8.0
Great locations
We have just stayed six nights at the Mantra on Russell. The hotel is in a good, central location making it easy to explore Melbourne CBD on foot plus the extensive tram network is close by. Friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast buffet offered a fair selection. The suite was a good size and included laundry facilities and a small kitchen. My only niggle was the internet speed which was mostly quite slow.

Great hotel - Restaurant not so great!
The room was lovely! The pool was great! Check in - no problems. Breakfast was ok. We had tea in the restaurant and it was not good! We ordered from the early 'theatre menu' as we had to be at a show at 8pm. Our entree took a long time to come out and then mains took a while. We only just made our 8pm show as the service was very slow! The pumpkin soup was so spicy my partner couldnt eat it (no mention of it being spicy - knowing it was too spicy they didnt charge us for it). We both ordered chcken dishes which were quite flavourless and the chicken was pink inside so I was a little hesitant to eat it (was probably fine but you never know). $50 spent and we were still hungry and unimpressed. Other then the meal, the hotel itself was great!!

Excellent location and super clean
I stayed here for a girls trip to Melbourne with a friend. Our 1 bedroom apartment was super clean and very spacious. It was so convenient to trams and local dining in the Greek and China Town precincts. The spa was great after a big few days of walking and sight seeing.I would absolutely stay here again.
