“Perfect hotel! Absolutely worth the money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We stayed at a double queen room with a very nice view of the Venetian hotel. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean, well-equipped; and the beds are very comfortable. I like how this hotel is not as crowded and loud as some of the other hotels in Macau, yet it offers an absolutely comfortable vacation experience for its guests. It's also conveniently located at the City of Dreams, which offers free shuttle buses to other casinos, tourist attractions and the ferry terminal.

We stayed at the hotel because of recommendations from friends. Now we will recommend the hotel to our friends as well and will definitely choose the hotel again if we come back.

We love this hotel. We stayed in a double Queen for two nights. The room is very spacious with nice views. My seven year old has already requested we stay there again for our next trip to Macau. The free shuttle bus service is excellent.

The views from our room on the 25th floor were amazing.

We actually didn't leave the hotel for the day we were there as we just didn't need to, everything we needed we could get there .

Late check out was also gladly taken. The night club and casino are both fantastic.

Everything was fine. I have zero complains except the fact that the room looks rather 'plain' and 'boring' from an interior designing perspective.

Other than that, all was good. Lobby personnel was fantastic. Very responsive, receptive and accommodating. Check-in people were great! Couldn't have asked for more.

Thank you Hard Rock Macau!

Fantastic stay
What a huge room with a view of venitian hotel and galaxy hotel
Huge bathroom,pot area separate and clean towels and crisp sheets soft bed
Great breakfast
Shopping area was great
Shows of the hotel were good
Staff was alert and friendly and ever helping
Every other hotel was walking distance and across the street
Shuttle service to Macau town was available for pick up and drop
Not far for ferry terminals
With venitian being so loud and garish hard rock can be soothing and a superb experience
The reception area is full of masterpieces from great singers and bands across the globe.

Room Tip: Choose a room with venitian view

We bought a package to see 'Dancing Waters' & the 'Taboo' shows (which I'm not rating here.) The hotel was not cheap, that said the service was as the reception was good. If only the hotel room had been either properly cleaned or at least deodorised. We complained they immediately sent a little man up with a atomiser/ deodoriser but when we returned after dinner it was just as bad. So at 11.00pm + when we wer feeling very tired we had to request a room change, which was efficiently executed.

The new room was on the 22nd floor, 4 x floors higher with an excellent view. We found a comfortable bed with usual amenities expected in a hotel of this quality. Being our anniversary we appreciated the gesture of a bottle of Merlot, a bowl of fruit & three exotically presented chocolates on a long dish.

Probably the most difficult part was booking this treat weekend over the phone. I spent too much time trying to understand the charming receptionists, whose spoken English was deplorable so! It was so bad I hung up once to in oder to speak to another girl, but it was just as bad. They understand well, but I ended up asking several times to spell simple words. Let's hope this hotel puts there staff through elocution lessons in future it will save customers so much time & phone bills.

We chose this hotel because we thought the Cotai area would be hip. It is but there is no charm in the surrounding area. The complex is actually full of high end shops with modern amenities. If you like this sort of thing then this place is for you.

We took the free shuttle from the ferry terminal. The transport staff were very polite and helpful. However upon arrival at the hotel there was nobody to help with our luggage. No big problem to us. Next, our hotel room smelt of cigarrette smoke. They could not change our room so the staff brought in one of those machines to de-odorise the air. It did help somewhat. It did not occur to me to request a non-smoking floor when I booked; so no fault of the hotel.

Otherwise the hotel services were great and the room view fantastic. Reception was very helpful in providing a free map and tips on where to go. The man even advised us Macau is not a place for shopping and to leave that when we go to Hong Kong!. Free wifi was available.

We saw the House of Dancing Water which was awesome; we booked the 5 pm show on a monday which surprisingly was almost full house. So book that well ahead if you are there for the show.

There is a food court upstairs in the complex but does not open until 11 am. However, big M opens earlier.

I would not stay there again because I prefer a neighbourhood with charm; so I would pick the old town the next time I visit Macau.

Room Tip: If you are a non-smoker, remember to request a non-smoking floor.

We take all our guests' feedback seriously and will use it to better improve ourselves. We understand that you would prefer to stay at some places with charming neighbourhood. However, Macau is actually quite accessible and our location is actually quite closed to some local historical places. Perhaps, if you plan to return to Macau we can get our Concierge Rocker to personally suggest and plan some interesting itinerary that suits your interest.

We look forward to welcome you back to Hard Rock Hotel Macau.
