“Nice but.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

You know what you are getting when you get a room at the Hard Rock, regardless where in the world you choose to stay at when it comes to accomodations at this fine establishment.

However, Hard Rock Hotel Macau is relatively new and though the staff are very warm and welcoming and helpful, and the hotel is swank and brand new, with comfortable rooms and great views of the city of dream and the ocean, the two issues which bothered me were:

-the lack of themes in the macau hotel rooms..they were just like any other typical 4 star hotel. Compared to the bali establishment, the macau rooms just did not tell you/remind you where you were and what was so special about the hotel

-the attached mall in which the hotel is based is dull, boring with so much of wasted space, and for the cost to build the hotel and "mall" you wonder if they actually got value for money to begin with.

The food at the restaurant on the 2nd floor (hard rock restaurant) was average and nothing to shout about. Had ribs and my partner fish and chips and we both left with nothing much to say other than "yea, it was alright."

Atmosphere in the restaurant is average at best, though the staff are lively and attentive but the hotel just...misses for me.

We stayed for four nights in two connecting rooms. The view from 25th storey facing the Venetian was fantastic. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Apart from the issue on having a toilet separated from the bathroom which most reviewers had commented, we have no problem with the rooms.
Breakfast was served at Hard Rock Cafe with a decent spread, and service was good. The concierge was also very helpful with travel advice, and even helped us to make a trip to Venetian to arrange for our cotaijet tickets back to HKIA.
The City of Dreams (where the Hard Rock is located) provides several shuttle services - not just to the ferry terminals, airport and borders, but also to travel attractions such as Macau Tower, Taipa Village and Hotel Sintra (from there you could walk to Largo de Senado within ten minutes). To go to Coloane (e.g. to Panda Pavilion), one could take the public bus from the bus stop (T375) along the main road, as there are several buses that go there.
Its rates are the most competitive ones in Cotai, and considering the good service, clean rooms, and good accessibility, i would strongly recommend Hard Rock Hotel.

It's on November during our honeymoon in Macau. It's the first hotel in our itinerary. We choose this hotel because it's simply we want to watch the famous Dancing Water Show and they offered a package that's including the show and the room with a reasonable price.
The hotel Itself located in City of Dreams, an integrated place consist of hotel, shopping mall & casino.
The room is tidy and very clean. It's not a big room but it's more than enough for both of us. It has modern and minimalist design. we love the view as we can see the famous Venetian hotel across the road.
Surprisingly we love the breakfast, not many to choose but they serve a very good taste of food mainly western style with some Asian selection.
As expected we really enjoyed the Show. It's really amazing a world class performance.
l would recommend this hotel and the show to anyone who travel to Macau.

This is very cool place for any thing you would like to do. Let it be Disc...Casino...action shows....well maintained rooms.... Flashy stuff all around....Only thing it looks little away from reality... You will feel that you are at Movie Set.....But Nice experience for a short stay.......

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Its a round hotel with very good view all around....try to be on a higher floor...

All of my 5 friends stayed at this hotel through a holiday package at this hotel. Let me tell you that if you are interested in partying then you cannot miss this place. This hotel has a shopping mall in itself + this hotels has 3-4 pubs which are fabulous in itself. i dont think so you should waste your time in rooms but enjoy and explore this hotel and get into the parties/events which this hotel has it on going.

Room Tip: chose a normal room and spend most of time in the hotel pubs

Had a short stay in Sept'12. A standard Hard Rock Hotel. Good thing is it's part of the City of Dreams and opposite the Venetian and Sands Entertainment Complex with the Galaxy a stone's throw away. 5 minutes from the airport.

Got a standard room which is smallish but nice. 3 fixture bathroom which is odd if it is a 5 star hotel. Heard the pool is lovely but did not use it also did not try breakfast.

Overall a good stay.
