In the hydrated title complex, [Mn(C8H6N3O2)(CH3CO2)(C12H8N2)(H2O)2]·2H2O, the MnII atom is coordinated by two N atoms from a 1,10-phenanthroline ligand, two water O atoms, a monodentate acetate anion and an O-monodentate 2-(1H-benzotriazol-1-yl)acetate ligand, resulting in a distorted cis-MnN2O4 octahedral coordination geometry. The water O atoms are in a trans arrangement and one of them forms an intramolecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bond to the uncoordinated O atom of the acetate ion. In the crystal, the complex molecules and water molecules are connected by O—H⋯O and O—H⋯N hydrogen bonds to generate a three-dimensional network.
