We, a family of five, stayed there for one night on 21st of April, and because Easter falls on 24th April, it was considered peak season in Macau and thus higher rates for the rooms. They do not have a single room for five occupancy. Therefore, we have no choice but to take two double rooms for a total of USD 145.48/ night, each room is USD 64.31/ night, but we have to pay extra USD 16.86 for the fifth guest. Actually both rooms are the same, there are two queen size bed in each room, but they charge us for an extra bed in one of the rooms. They were quite strict about the number of occupancy in the rooms, thus though the room is big enough for three and the extra bed was a redundancy, but we still have to pay for it. See attached pictures of the room. We actually booked the rooms from Agoda, which is cheaper compared to walk-in, and because it was peak season, we were lucky to be able to book our rooms online. (Payment is through credit card).
For an inexpensive mode to get to Victoria Hotel. Here’s a suggestion you can consider. From airport, take Venetian Hotel free shuttle bus that will stop you at Venetian Hotel, then find your way to the West Entrance; a bus stop for buses from different hotels to pick up and drop their guest. Board the Venetian bus to Border Gate, once reach border gate, is 10 minutes walk to Victoria Hotel. You could get the direction from Google Map.
You can find three smallest elevator in the world at the hotel’s main lobby, with luggage, only three people can fit into it, and maybe five to six without luggage. You can find restaurant on the third floor. They also have wi-fi connectivity, but you will be lucky if you can get it, is rather hard though, the connection is not stable, you will never seem to get connected.
However, the in-room amenities are pretty okay, there are two armchairs, dressing table, refrigerator, LCD television, electric kettle, clean sheets, comfy beds, hair dryer, bathtub in one of the room, and just shower for another room. Also two bottle of complimentary drinking water is provided along with toiletries. They have many TVB channels and programs which serves as an entertainment for us during late night, and because I am a big fan of TVBs, thumbs up for that ;) Besides that, you can also choose to buy playing card, drinks and instant noodles which are available in the rooms. The room is okay size, especially after they add in the extra bed, is more ‘crampy‘; not much walking space between the beds, nevertheless the amenities are pretty okay and most important we got good quality sleep.
Near the hotel, opposite the park, you will come across a Chinese Restaurant named “Dong Lai Mei Shi” (see attached pictures) that served yummy dim sum, roast duck and pork ;) There are also foreign currency exchange trader and good bakery stores in the vicinity of the hotel. Though is not the perfect location as the tourist attractions are mainly on Taipa and Central of Macau, but this area near Border Gate is a breath of fresh air, you can experience the culture of Macau-ians living their daily lives. For example, an alley which you can get haircut, convenient stores which you can get local treats, and many more inexpensive shops and cafes which can offer you the local experience you yearn for.
Overall I would say we have a pleasant stay in Victoria Hotel, Macau.
