Amazed there was no free wifi for an upmarket hotel in a modern city. Foyer drink station was always out of fresh cups. Even on one of the highest levels, there was a lot of street noise. Rooms were very well appointed and clean and modern.

Booked in for a night and a room was available on our arrival which was a little early. We were upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment. Rooms are clean and tidy. Wifi is $25 a day and I think this is outrageous. Breakfast was average and a 'real' coffee is extra. Go out and find breakfast in any of the... More

Had to travel to Melbourne for 2 nights staying at this hotel and was really impressed. The beds were so, so comfortable, room was spotless, customer service was great at the front counter and you know I really couldn't fault the hotel. Melbourne even turned on good weather, yep can't leave one negative comment. Well done Mantra on Russell!

The hotel is located at the center of the city which closed to some major shopping malls; China Town and Queen Victoria Market. Spacious hotel and nice services. There is a lot of different kinds of restaurant nearby.

Great location, great value, very clean, very quiet .....I usually stay at either Grand Hyatt or Crown but Mantra on Russell is cheaper and far more comfortable for stays of 2 nights or more....I will be staying here again

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.
