Another great stay at the Mantra On Russell. The location is exceptional as so close to Melbourne CBD shopping and just on the doorstep of China town. Great spacious studio appartments with a nice view (17th floor) through the city. Great pillars and bed, certainly a home away from home. Staff helpful and friendly. I'll be back (if you aren't...

We enjoyed a very pleasant week's stay at the Mantra on Russell in June 2016. Well appointed apartments, central location within walking distance to anything. Staff friendly and helpful. Recommend requesting a high level room because the street noise carries a long way and doesn't abate. Inhouse restaurant is excellent - great food (incl room service) and prices. Would happily...

I had a huge room, more like apartment with kitchen and living and bedroom. Everything clean and spotless in the hotel. Location is great to discover the city. I stayed only one night and left early to the airport, but for sure a choice for my next visit to Melbourne.

Staff were exceptionally helpful and polite! Viewers from balcony were good. A few first world issues. The balcony didn't have any seats or tables, luckily I brought my own. The bed was very firm and the pillows were flat - could just be my personal preference The bathroom felt a little dated with the bath/shower combo - most hotels/apartments I've...

The TV was annoying as we couldn't plug our USB into the back of the tv and watch our own shows. You could only order movies by paying. With The price you pay per night you shouldnt impose restrictions on tv. We have stayed at cheaper places and could play movies and songs!also very noisy. Could hear street noise all...

Firsts family holiday with a little one is always going to be nerve racking. Loved having room service for those tiring days. It was a good location as we wanted things conveniently near us. I wish that vacuuming was done on a daily basis as I had a toddler. Wished they had provided extra towels for my son as I...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
