Mary Hotel is a three star hotel located in the heart of Mary, ideally situated opposite the town's bazaar. The hotel is made up of 175 spacious rooms decorated in luxurious colours of beige, cream and gold. Each room is fitted with ensuite bathroom facilities and an air conditioning system. The six-floor building has an onsite restaurant that offers a variety of traditional dishes, a fitness centre, a swimming pool and a sauna for guests to enjoy at their own leisure. Additionally, the hotel has an onsite hairdresser and chemist. Please note that the pool is only open during the height of the peak season and services become limited towards the end and just before the summer season. Although services and facilities at the Mary hotel are not what they once were, it remains the best option in the city. It is recommended that you purchase water before arriving to the hotel as there currently isn't the option to do so at the hotel.
