Great location and most helpful reception staffs
Friendly and helpful reception staffs. We booked a queen bed room instead of twin beds room by mistake. The hotel was fully booked for that night so could not swap rooms. The reception staffs very promptly set up a rollaway bed for us, before we even arrived at our room.

We used Mantra on Russell for a week while exploring the city and visiting family. The staff were simply outstanding, and the free newspaper under the door by 6AM was an added pleasure.
