I travel to Macau regularly and the perfect way to save on my lodging is to cross the border and find a hotel in Zhuhai. (Do note that you need multiple entry visa in order to cross over freely. | Do also take note that you can only cross the Gongbei border to Zhuhai or vice versa to macau only between 7.00am and 12.00am.)
Huayu Spring Hotel is located on Lotus road, 10 -15 minutes away from the the Gongbei Port of Entry. Finding it during the first instance maybe a little challenging as the hotel is situated in a small lane. Look out for a sign along lotus road, once you spotted the sign, make a right turn into the small lane and you will be able to see the hotel.
It is a typical transit hotel where there are no services. You checked in and head straight to the room. The person at the counter speaks chinese, cantonese and only a little english. Don't expect any view as the windows are made of opaque glass which makes the room a little dimmed. There wasn't any internet wireless in the room.
I slept well with my partner and the room is big enough for a couple. In terms of cleanliness, i always believe if it can't be seen by naked eyes than it should be clean. I guess this apply to the room that i am staying. The partition between the toilet and the room is made of clear glass but there are curtains that can be drawn to protect your modesty.
There are a few convenience store outside the hotel and you can find plenty of street food near the hotel. I paid about S$50 for a deluxe king per night and stayed for 2 nights on a weekend. I wouldn't mind staying here again due to the location and the convenience. The only problem is that if you are a coffee drinker like me, it is near impossible to find any decent coffee around the hotel.
With so many other similar type of hotels in the Gongbei area, you might be able to find better ones if you search harder, but i definitely have no qualms in staying at Huayu Spring again.
