I was after a heritage hotel with modern interiors/fittings but the sole hotel that came up in my online search did not have good ratings. Casa Real came up as a hotel with a typical Portuguese building that's newly refurbished. I'm glad I chose this hotel because it was really nice and relaxing to step into this homey hotel at the end of a tiring day.
We stayed in a studio which was ultra spacious - 2 double beds, a sofa, writing desk, dining table and spacious bathroom. I really can't ask for more and it was really smoke-free in the non smoking room that I asked for.
It's a bit of a stretch to think that one could walk from the hotel and the ferry terminal. While the actual distance on foot may be near due to certain shortcuts which I did not discover, the extremely busy roads are not really conducive to walking.
I would highly recommend fellow travellers to consider this hotel if they are not after the glitz of the new casino hotels. For the price of an ordinary room in one of the new 5-star casino hotels, you are able to enjoy the space and comfort of a studio at Casa Real. I was also delighted with the lobby cafe which offered freshly squeezed juice at a very affordable price akin to hawker prices in Singapore.More
