A well-rounded hotel

It's the first hotel we stayed in Australia, and it's the best so far. The location is great, right in the middle of the attraction, within 15 minutes to Sydney Harbor (Opera House) and Darling Harbor. Buses are running right in front of the hotel on George street. Room is clean with everything you needed, stoves, microwave, washer/dryer, dinning area. Staffs were really helpful with giving directions and some other personal requests that was not required by the hotel. The few minor things are the small bathroom and the in-room internet service that costs A$25/day (but we later found out this is common practice in Australia to charge internet). Hotel did provide free wi-fi in the lobby, which was good enough for us. Overall we give it 5 star for the great value.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Restaurants in Sydney Harbor and Darling Harbor are all quite expensive. So, go a little bit further out from the tourist area. We took a bus for two stops on George St to Liverpool St, and found so many cheap Asian (and some non Asian) restaurants. We went to a Thai restaurant called Holy Basil in Shark Hotel. The food was great and reasonable. Another reasonable place is CBD is Ivy in Royal George on George st, where you order and pay from the bar directly. Food is good, and most main courses are under A$20, which is rare in CBD.

Australia trip

The hotel is in a good location. I liked the fact that it had a washer & dryer in the room & a small kitchen area.

Wow!

I hesitatedly booked an Executive Studio apartment here for the 3 nights we were in Sydney. I say hesitatedly because I didn't really want to spend the money they required and I couldn't really tell from the google map if my choice of location was a hit or a miss. Well, as soon as we drove down the street and arrived at our destination, I KNEW I made an excellent choice and would not regret the rate (I'm an average working class American who doesn't like to waste money on frivolous ammenities). George street is THE main street in the Rocks/Sydney area and NOTHING was more than a very few minutes' walk from Mantra (The Rocks, Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, Opera House). We needed no public transportation to explore - we discovered this after we booked a 48hr hop on hop off city tour bus - I recommend that as well - for a great overview tour of the city and Bondi Beach, but it certainly wasn't necessary staying at the Mantra. The staff was very helpful and friendly - provided all sorts of information and recommendations. The room - oh my, I cannot say enough. They thought of every need possible - 3 of us stayed in the room - spacious; the double bed was comfortable; the rollaway great; awesome bathroom with washing machine and dryer (and detergent); GREAT kitchen - granite counters, maple cabinets, full fridge/freezer, microwave, pots, pans, panini maker, hot pot, wine glasses, bottle opener, forks, knives, dishes, etc, water pitcher. Wow. AND the room service menu was not expensive - especially compared to the States. I just cannot say enough. Thank you very much for the awesome stay - I look forward to finding your brand elsewhere! We stayed in room 1311 - wow - you have to see it.
