Our family loved the modern, clean and spacious apartment at Mantra on Russell this past week. We felt very comfortable and loved the location for our city exploring and nearby Chinatown restaurants. The air conditioning was also great at a time when Melbourne turned on the heat - we had great fun in the pool and wished we could have stayed longer - the pool was a real favourite for our family. A big highlight was the service and assistance we received from our welcome staff member Luna - she looked after us so well for a whole range of requests and was very friendly. Now that we are back home we miss Luna and the Mantra - our son wants us to move to Melbourne because of our experience! Thank you Mantra on Russell - we will be back!

We took an option this time for a 2br apartment.It was well spaced ,clean and comfortable.We were located higher up and had a good view of the city.The indoor pool was a bonus,not supervised .The restaurant was only open on certain days ,so we were left to buy groceries at the local Woolworths ,not far away .The only feedback we could give ,and it s been written in other reviews ,is the temperature in the shower flucuates ( extremely hot to cold).Also the toiletries provided,are barellyunreadable as to what they are.Overall check in /out was seemless,we would stay again.

Great location, friendly staff, One bedroom studio perfect and very comfortable . On the downside due to COVID the buffet breakfast not available 7 days per week. Would highly recommend. Definitely stay there again. As Accor members we would suggest Accor revise there policy of one free night per stay especially if your a couple and would like to use the two free nights in the one stay.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which was comfortable and well equipped. Unfortunately,  a couple of hours after check in I found a used needle/syringe in the bathroom cupboard. Our 3 year old had been exploring the space since we arrived and I was horrified to think what could have happened had he discovered the needle before me. We notified staff and they were apologetic and offered us a new room. It was nearly 6pm and although we were glad to be moving to a cleaner room it was quite inconvenient - no offers of help from staff, or even a trolley to cart our things along the hallway to the new room. Compensation was complimentary breakfast, which was quite disappointing. No offer of even a minor upgrade in room type. It was an unpleasant experience and certainly tarnished the beginning of our getaway, and lowered our expectations of Mantra.

Absolutely LOVED our stay at Mantra on Russell. It was close to everything and all the Trams. Melbourne Central was only a block away. Close to great restaurants and our room was spacious. We had the one bedroom apartment on level 6, with our own private large verandah it was like having our very own rooftop bar!
