We found Mantra Southbank really handy to many Melbourne attractions - it's right behind the arts centre and also very close to the river where there are several restaurants. A quick walk across the bridge and you're at Federation Square and trams to all over the city. We were there for the Australian Open tennis which was within easy walking...

The location of the property outweighed the slight negatives. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room size was great although the road noise was loud. Pillows were dire so if possible take your own. Cleanliness was a bit hit and miss in the room, lots of areas missed. Housekeeping didn't attend on a couple of days and stocks not replenished...

The staff were wonderful, extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was clean, roomy and a comfy bed:) Only a short walk to Southbank, DFO, Tram access and plenty of restaurants and cafes close by. Good views and facilities were well maintained.

Nice neat and tidy room. Great location. Would have loved a 3 bedroom as travelling with 3 couples. Pillows are horrible. The front desk employees were very friendly and helpful. The garage space for parking a large car was difficult but possible. We had an excellent time in Melbourne. Had 2 nights there and had to move hotels to another...
