How to make your hotel feel like home
When you move into one of Mantra's hotels in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and other locations, there are plenty of handy features you can enjoy.
Live@Mantra is a long-term accommodation option that helps you settle into a new city with a range of services, such as a welcome pack of groceries and a pantry shopping service.
Of course, even with all of these convenient features available, making your hotel feel like home will take some time. However, there are a few ways you can instantly add some personal touches to your new room.
Bring some memorable snapshots
There's nothing quite like a photograph for bringing back those special memories and capturing all those important moments.

One way you can add some homely touches to your new hotel room is to bring some of your favourite photos with you. Whether it's of your family, your friends, or favourite places in your home town, photos are easy to travel with and store and are a quick way to make a new location feel more familiar.
You can buy a few photo frames after you've moved in, or take advantage of the digital photo frame that comes with many Live@Mantra hotel rooms for even easier storage.
Make it smell like home
Scents and smells are one of the most powerful shortcuts our brain has to access past memories and nostalgic moments - so if you have a favourite scent that you associate with home, bring it along with you as you move into your hotel room.
Alternatively, you can also purchase it once you've moved into a new city to help save some extra space in your suitcase!
Diffusion sets are ideal as they don't involve any burning of candles (which carry potential hazards) and still circulate scents strongly around a room.
