If you're visiting Macau without particular interest in its glamours Vegas style casino life and is looking for somewhere more down to earth, quiet, sight-seeing friendly yet affordable accommodation, look no further, this is the place for you.
If you're here in Macau for gambling action, you may stop reading now, this place is not for you.
Wonderful! It is only a 5mins walk to Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro, where most of its sight seeing attractions are located, it is also the city centre of Macau. Located on Praca de Ponte e Horta, where the Portuguese first landed in Macau and started their colonial era here some 150 years ago. Foods are everywhere, bus stop just around a corner, the only downside is the lack of access to a casino, the only Casino within walking distant will be the Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16 just around the corner.
Macau is not the most dangerous city on earth, nor the safest. Basic precautions are always recommended. The hotel surroundings can be quiet at night, but safe enough for walking about.
Dinning and Facilities:
No restaurant in this property, a small bar that opens after dawn next the lobby is available. But just walk across the street and you'll find plenty of food options available. As a simple boutique hotel, no facilities is available, there are free WIFI hotel-wide, but signal is terrible in rooms.
Some part of the hotel looks tired and show signs of renovation needs, but overall it wasn't a bad experience. If you have an extra dollar to spare, you may opt for the top floor penthouse rooms, where the rooms are nicer and it comes with a better view out the windows.
Rooms are clean and tidy, TV in my room wasn't functioning properly (not that I care) and water pressure at shower seems to be a bit low, but other than that, it is totally fine and live up to a 2-star standard.
Staffs are friendly, cheerful and will go out of their way to make you feel at home, they are efficient and always ready to serve guests' needs.
Rooms and Sleep Quality:
Room size is okay, bed is a bit too hard for my liking, but others who enjoy a harder bed may find it delightful. Rooms are clean and there is a portable heater in my room (not that I need one this time of year). A/C is strong and the room lacks a bit of lighting.
Will I recommend it? If the price is right.
1) WIFI in the hotel is very inconsistent, if Internet access is very important to you, buy a local sim card. They are available at the arrival hall of the HK-Macau Ferry terminal, airport and all across town. Look for the CTM once as they offer the best price out of the 3 companyg (smartone sucks).
2) There are no free casino shuttle to this hotel, however C.O.D (City of Dreams) provide free shuttle service from Hotel Sintra in downtown Macau to Taipa. Make good use of these free casino shuttles to save you tons of money on transportation.
