Wonderful location in a more crowded older part of the city. The real essence of Macao is actually in the older part of the city, not just the new glitzy mega casinos and glamourous hotels.
Upon arrival, be greeted by faux opulence and a huge loud chandelier juxtaposed by t-shirted staffs manning the lobby.
A wonderful surprise, while a waiting for the shuttle bus at check out - a nice Filipino Gentlemen (Bellmen) even offered me a newspaper to read, something big luxury hotels cannot even do sometimes.
Being an older hotel, rooms were wonderfully large with 2 really comfortable queen beds, toilets were equally spacious for Macao/Hkg standards.
Location is excellent but also bearing in mind the concentration of pawn shops around the area. Call girls plying their trades with heavy eye contacts are all but a flutter away the moment you step out of the faux opulent decor"ed" hotel. Entirely up to the individual, this can be good or bad depending on your choice. (wink wink!)
Make use of the hotels, scheduled shuttle bus (Macao Ferry terminal to Hotel to Macao Ferry Terminal). Most larger hotels have shuttle bus services
