Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay with us at Mantra MacArthur Hotel and for taking the time to send us your feedback. If I may suggest for a future stay one of our one bedroom suites. These are double size bigger than a studio room, and also feature a small kitchenette area with a microwave. We do appreciate your comments and hopefully we can host you again in the near future. Kind Regards.

This hotel has all the charm of a Russian military base. Bare basic gym and Greek themed restaurant with limited options. There’s a lot of construction going on in the area which could be a noise factor during the day. It’s a long walk to the town if you don’t have a car. If you do have a car the parking is in a private garage next door, no direct access to hotel. Staff are very polite and efficient, the only good thing about this hotel.

Dear Maverick, Thank you for your stay at Mantra MacArthur Hotel and for taking the time to send us your feedback. Our apologies if the car park layout was an inconvenience. The building has been a retrofit from a government office building, hence the lifts are not connected directly to the hotel. We will share your comments with our restaurant team regarding the menu options in order to improve our guests' experience. We are glad to know that the service provided by our team met your expectations and we were able to assist you during your stay. Hopefully we can have the opportunity to host you again in the near future! Kind regards.
