Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Mantra staff were extremely helpful and polite. Rooms were clean and comfortable. A little disappointed that the bar and restaurant were only open Thursday evenings but it did not affect our stay at all. Close to the free tramlines and also walking distance to the city and surrounds. I will return.

The bathroom was incredibly outdated. Every-time we came into the room it smelt as though someone had been in the room and had explosive diarrhoea. It absolutely rieked. Luckily we didn't spend much time in the room besides sleeping at night. For the ridiculous price we paid, one) there needs to be some renovations done; your reviews all say the same on google yet it seems the hotel hasn't listened to these reviews at all and 2) i think the smell was obviosuly coming from water / mould damage behind the walls, wasnt a small thing that can be repaired overnight.

The service and rooms are fine. I liked having a washing machine dryer etc. My problem ( why 4 and not 5 stars) was that it is not close to any shops or cafes etc . ( certainly not open in evening. The hotel itself doesnt have any bar or cafe ( except for breakfast) so there is nowhere to chill in evening.

Great location for the Australian Open tennis. Easy walk to all arenas. Property is dated but fairly clean. Air conditioner not working and couldn’t be fixed apparently during my stay. Housekeeping service is by request only and notice you must ask for it the day before. Restaurant only open for breakfast. Accor welcome drink was bottled water left in the room. I have stayed at the property 7 times before and I can see they are scaling back or streamlining their customer service.

Quick check in, friendly staff. Upon entering room and opening fridge it was found to be full of water as it had defrosted. As our room was on the reception floor, we attended the desk and the issue as promptly rectified. Having purchased some drinks as there are no bars in close walking distance, and not being able to open a bottle as no bottle opener in the room it was another trip to reception to obtain one as well as champagne glasses and decent drinking size glasses. After attempting to wash up it was found that the plug didn't fit the sink, hence another trip to reception, however it was unattended. We had a two bedroom apartment with the beds split to singles. The beds had been made up with the king/queen doona doubled over on 1 bed and the other bed had a thin blanket, so a single doona from the other room was swapped for the doubled over one due to the heat of the doubled over doona. While the above are not deal breakers, 5.00 am the following morning is, trains, trains, trains right outside the windows (2) of the second bedroom starting at 4.30 am and increasing from there. There are about 4 train lines with at times 3 trains passing at simultaneously making sleep impossible. At breakfast the first morning of our stay another guest on an upper floor complained of the same problem and couldn't believe how loud they were. We both said we were going to buy some ear plugs today. On our way out to the tennis we stopped at reception to ask a question and joked whether they had ear plugs because of the trains. Staff brought out a large container full of ear plugs and gave me enough or the next 2 nights. Obviously the hotel knows the train noise is a problem and still books out the rooms on the side near the tracks. This is totally unacceptable and these rooms should not be booked out. The ear plugs muffled the sound of the train but they were still too loud to stay asleep. Upon check out and advising how loud the trains are and how they disrupt sleep we were told "the seals on the double glazing must be loose" and management would be advised. In any other hotel a gesture of goodwill eg not paying for breakfast would be offered, however there wasnt even an apology. Whilst the hotel is close to the sporting precinct, there are no bars, cafes or convenience stores close by. Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else and if you do stay here avoid room 107 and those directly above it.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a lovely time. The hotel is in a good position with easy walking distance to trams and parks. The hotel is clean and modern and from the entrance to reception. Staff friendly. However..I booked this hotel for a few reasons one being that it had a bar and restaurant on site,although it does have a bar it isn’t open and the restaurant is only open for breakfast. The photos of the rooms make them look new and pristine but ours although in a great position needed a bit of tlc. As for the pool again the photos look good but it was never swept and was full of leaves and uninviting. Saying this we hd a great time and would return and recommend.

The bed was very comfortable. You have to book for parking on the premises. Unfortunately I did email the hotel but never received anything back so we missed out on premises parking while staying there which was inconvenient. The room was clean and tidy but our shower had a massive crack in the bottom and the handle to open the shower door was broken.

Great rooms and facilities… let down by breakfast unavailability on Mondays & Tuesdays. Why not consider offering a simple breakfast pack for purchase on those days or at least updating website info so guests can come prepared? Other than that this was a lovely place with great character close to MCG.
