      Individual guest reviews

      • Group of friends
        6.2

        The location in the city

        The rooms were not that clean, eg food still in the fridge from other guest, balconies covered in cigarette buts and beer tops. The bar was never open only for limited time.

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        Location, relative quality of accommodation, felt generally very secure (although no card needed to enter elevator), staff made every effort to assist with stay

        Smoking from other guests (? owners/residents on floors above us). Cleaners did only minimal job - room not vacuumed until day 4/5 of our stay. Needed better sealing to windows as traffic street noise still prominent on 18th floor.

      • Family with children
        9.6

        The location for us was great, having the trams only min away, shop's just down the road and great restaurants nearby. We also love having a hotel with a pool. The room's were clean and comfortable.

        We think the pool should be open for longer hours, 10:30pm - 11pm close would have been better.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Easy access to parking and the city

        Housekeeping were so to act when there was an issue with a broken toaster and glass, they did not respond to the message for a new glass and took to long to attend for the toaster and did not think to bring a new one with them.

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        1 too noisy 2 no hot water the mornig we left to shower

      • Couple
        9.2

        Value for money and the staff did whatever they could to help I.e I requested a balcony and they did follow through with this request even though it was already noted as I booked early, it was arranged on arrival although there weren't any readily available.

        That we didn't have a slip matt in the shower, why does safety have to be requested?

      • Family with children
        7.8

        Great location, front service were very helpful, pool and gym were great to have and to stay on the same floor a bonus.

        The pool and gym should have towels located there so as not to have to call for them. Room service clean and towel replacement should not be knocking on the door at 9.15 when you are on holidays. 10.00am would have been acceptable and should not require a note on the door unless you don,t wish to be disturbed until after 10.00am.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        The location is excellent and if able to get a discounted room is quite good value for money.

        The lounge area was dated and not comfortable. The 2nd bed was a fold out lounge which is fine if the bed is in good order unfortunately ours wasnt.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        good location , staff are very kind and friendly . room is very comfetable space .

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The position of the hotel in the centre of the city was excellent for our purpose. The room design and furniture was very good, and the advantage of a heated swimming pool was very good for families.

        We were in a quiet room, yet we could still hear and feel the vibrations of a nightclub or some such - not sure that it was in the hotel, but until the early hours on two of the nights. Servicing of the room did not happen on one of the days. The main problem with our apartment was the shower - it was very difficult to get a good hot shower, the water temperature varied so much. I would only consider staying here again from Sunday to Wednesday when it is more likely to be quiet. I would recommend to others with reservations

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The service was great and the rooms were clean and modern. Would come again for sure

      • Family with children
        8.2

        Was lovely hotel great room for 4 people very spacious and great view of the city. Staff were very helpful and nice.

        That the floor wasn't vacuumed anytime during the 5 days and couldn't get a milkshake with room service at 10.20 because the bar was closed.

      • Single
        10.0

        The fact that everything is a short walk away ; movies,library,shopping,food feasts etc .

        My window wouldnt close properly, otherwise l loved my stay at mantra on russell .

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        The central location it had to everything we needed. As well as the wonderfully helpful staff and balcony!

        When room service was asked for (using the door piece), we came back to an untouched room. When we didn't require or ask of room service, the room was cleaned. Other then this one time occurance, everything was perfect!

      • Couple
        10.0

        Loved how close it was to everything and right at the foot of China tow ! Loved every bit of my stay!!
