My sister and I stayed in this guesthouse from 11-15 September 2012. We had great expectations as this was recommended to us by a friend of a friend but were in for a big disappointment upon arrival. The room originally assigned to us was old, dilapidated and untidy looking. It was cramped with very small bathroom. We tried to request for a better room but the owner (the older one) said there was none available. We were so disappointed because the room assigned to us was a far far cry from the published pictures in the GCG website. We felt shortchanged as upon check-in we were required to pay for the whole duration of our stay (four days). It was a good thing that the staff in the guesthouse are Filipinos. One Filipina staff helped us to get a larger room with no additional charge. It was better but the tiny comfort room smelled. As we made our booking online March 2012, the least the owner could have done was to assign to us a newly renovated room.
Locationwise, the GCG is close to the MTR station, shopping areas and some tourist spots. The ferry station to Macau is also a few blocks away. Also the Filipina staff were very accommodating.
