# 5

Mantra Collins Hotel

Mantra Collins Hotel is located in downtown Hobart. It’s very conveniently located and you can really walk on foot to most of the popular places in Hobart, but that’s also largely due to the fact that Hobart is an extremely small city to begin with. Some of the attractions in closest vicinity to the hotel are the harbour front, the neighboring art galleries full of South African masterpieces, and museums. The immediate neighborhood of the hotel is quite trendy and hip and it’s a great place to go exploring for some charming cafes and restaurants. The building that houses the hotel used to be a boring old tower block, however it has been refurbished and completely upended into a hip and trendy boutique hotel. However, the only drawback is that the hotel doesn’t come with all of the staples of luxury hotels. For example, it doesn’t have a bar of its own. Considering this is one of the cheaper boutique hotels in Hobart, the rooms aren’t very spacious and can sometimes get very cramped, however the one-bedroom apartment is quite spacious enough for one person. The accommodations are also quite light on personality and style, however they’re all functionally designed. The hotel restaurant is called Collins and it’s largely meant for a quick bite, however if you want a proper meal with cool ambience, you should step out of the hotel and into the neighboring Garagistes Restaurant. Having said that, perhaps the biggest draw for this hotel is that it’s functional in nature and is quite cheap.
