About Macarthur Chambers Apartments


The refurbished Macarthur Chambers Apartments is a distinctly historic boutique property of fashionable style and enchanting character which is truly located right in the heart of Brisbane’s central business district. The intriguing and rich heritage takes guests on a path of discovery, while the modern elegance offers a new level of comfort and thoughtful luxury. Macarthur Chambers Apartments was used in 1942 as a base by Douglas Macarthur – commander in chief of the allied forces in the Pacific from which he conducted operations for the crucial campaign of World War Two.

Offering elegantly designed apartments, guests can enjoy on-site parking, a gymnasium, rooftop swimming pool, spa, and BBQ area all in a perfect location – perfect for the travelling executive or the family. But it's the 2-bedroom apartments that offer the great tradition of luxury with modern design and features including fully equipped kitchens and laundry, a plush lounge with a large LCD/plasma TV, powder room, and en-suite bathrooms with shower and bath. The seamless service and the legend behind the name makes this hotel more than just a place to stay or visit.

Before check out, must pick-up every garbage. there are two plastic battles and one packaged garbage bag that I forgot to put into garbage can. The hotel charges me 50 AU dollar additional fee. This is the first time I got additional charge for additional cleaning fee because of some garbage. So, the living feeling in this hotel is so terrible. The hotel just send an e-mail to tell me the additional charge that I should pay. I wrote an e-mail to the reception but the reception do not response my e-mail.

Great location
Beautiful apartment in central Brisbane, tastily furnished with large living area, no balcony as is an old style building, easily accessible from airport train then 5 mins walk. Only criticism is that insufficient toiletries or towels were supplied for a 3 day stay and good quality coffee would have been appreciated

Decent enough
Location, gorgeous bathroom, very quiet
It was adequate. I found the staff to be quite terse in their delivery of service, but very accommodating in their action. The beds were truly terrible. The mattress was so threadbare you could feel the springs and I hardly got any sleep while I was there. The Internet was incredibly slow and required you to log in with password and username every single time you got onto your computer. Found it strange that there were no tea towels in the kitchen. And also unusual that they require you to remove all rubbish from the apartment when you leave (isn't that what housekeeping is meant to do?). That rest of the apartment was wonderful. It was extremely quiet, which was surprising and great. The furnishing were nice, the place is in a great locations. If it weren't for he mattress, I would definitely recommend this place.
