My family recently stayed at the Mantra Southbank to experience Melbourne at Xmas time. It was a wonderful, clean two bedroom apartment. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities of the hotel were average. The major drawback is the hotels location. Whilst it is fantastic in regards to being so convenient to Southbank and Flinder St, it...

Excellent location - within comfortable walking distance to the major art galleries and art centres, Southbank, city shopping, botanical gardens and rail network at Flinders Street. We stayed in a one bedroom unit and found it to be spacious with all facilities.

Car park maintence was communicated very late resulting in our family having to wait 30 minutes before we could exit (which resulted in being late for an important meeting). Location is brilliant with Southbank only a 5 minute walk.

For a budget it's ok. Location is good but premises could do with a touch up. Be warned to if you get the wrong room it can be noisy due to traffic but given location it's expected. The staff are friendly though so it makes up somewhat for the premises.

Great place to stay for our family. We booked 3 x 2 bedroom apartments and it was great. Rooms big with good facilities. Kids loved pool, sauna and spa. Good sized fridge. Lounge area was big enough for all to gather for drinks and nibbles (14 people).
