“5 minutes walk to Casino Lisboa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Short ride from the airport to this hotel, about 10-15 minutes ride and appears very popular, our taxi driver was telling us about how everything is close to this hotel (appears even locals stay here).

If you exit the hotel and turn left, walk straight till you hit a main road and make a left, along that road is McDonalds, 7/11, some local convenience stores etc. Keep walking down along this road and to your right is Senate Square, you will see it as you walk, can't possibly miss it! Very long street with plenty of boutique stores etc. If you need to get to Hac Sa on the other island, where the Venetian Casino is, when you exit the hotel, make a left, as soon as you reach the red lights, cross it and turn left, walk along that road and you will see the bus signs, jump on bus 26A and it will take you to Hac Sa, you will know when to get off since you can't really miss the Venetian...

Ordered room service as we were too tired to go out, rice with stewed pork was decent but it took almost an hour to arrive.

Room was very clean, bathroom was very clean and a moderate selection of amenities were provided. 2 bottles of water were provided each day however the mini bar, well there is no mini bar. There is a small mini bar fridge in the cupboard, which is on but it was completely empty, we did however found that someone had left the complimentary wrapper from the complimentary water bottle in the fridge. So I assume that the house keepers don't even bother looking in there since no snacks or beverages are offered.

Free wifi only if your booking includes it, otherwise you will have to pay for a temp user name and password daily. Wifi is horrible though, even with full connection, it was very slow and required relogin via the webpage very 5-10 minutes! No complimentary wired internet either.

Overall would stay again, but a mini bar with items might be handy.

Hotel Sintra is located in the heart of Macau, and walking distance to everything on the peninsula. It is very near the Grand Lisboa, Senado Square, and the Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral. It is a fairly old building however, and the room size is on the smaller side. For our one night stay it was more than adequate, but was certainly nothing special as far as hotels go. Compared to the rest of the area, I feel you could do much better for your money.

Stayed 2 nights over a weekend. Good value as a 3*** but don't expect everything you might expect of a 4****. Very decent size rooms in particular, although decor was a bit dated and tired. Dining was ok, children's menu was fine, and breakfast buffet pretty wide ranging. Only snag for us was that we were unable to get interconnecting rooms on a non-smoking floor despite this being what we had specified on online booking. Location very good for walking round the city and no problems hailing a cab back to the ferry.

My college bestfriend and I went to Macau from 13-15 January 2012. I've been browsing Agoda's website and stumbled upon this hotel. Based on the reviews, I took the reviewers words for it and booked 3 days stay at Hotel Sintra.

I booked their deluxe room. Well, Hotel Sintra didn't fail us! Considering the room's rate, you get value for your money. It is located strategically at Macau's busy commercial center. It is near the St. Paul's Ruins and other tourist spots in Macau. The ruins is just about 15 minutes away and you could reach there by walking. The Grand Lisboa is very near, about a 5-minute walk.

Check in was fast. Hotel Sintra's deluxe room is equipped with basic amenities. Hot and cold shower, toiletries, LCD tv, hairdryer, bathrobes, telephone, alarm clock, weigh scale, sofa and comfortable beds. Basically, it has all what one needs. I salute the management for maintaining the room spic and span. Everything is already there!

The deluxe room includes buffet breakfast. They have a variety of food choices. We definitely enjoyed dining there.

The staff are polite and knows what customer service is all about. They have a Filipino hotel manager who is very conversant in English & Cantonese. Since we were of the same nationality as with him, we were treated really nice. He will always check on things that we need, giving us pointers on how to go around the city and the most accessible points in going our itinerary. We find comfort in this hotel.

After checkout, we still left our luggages there so can still casino hop and watch the Dragon Show at the City of Dreams. It was raining that Sunday, yet, they took care of us and lent us their hotel umbrellas and guide us to where the shuttle of City of Dreams is.

Next time around, we will definitely be staying here again at Hotel Sintra!

Room Tip: Use other hotels shuttles in going around the city, saves you money for transport expenses. They ar...

The hotel's location is its best point. The room, while decently sized, is very dated and has a slightly moldy smell. The elevator is small and can hardly fit people +luggages. Not a bad place to stay in and I guess considering its price, it offers good value.

Nice enough mid-range hotel in a very good central location near to Lisboa and Lisboa Grand hotels and walking distance to many attractions in Macau City, its easy also to get a bus or taxi over to Taipa. Hotel has 14 floors, rooms are a little dated but are fine, clean and well-sized. Its not one of the big flashy new Macau hotels but its good enough for a short trip to Macau and is good value for money. Rooms have large bathroom with bathtub/shower, aircon, small frdge, flastscreen TV, desk, very comfortable bed with nice clean bedding. Breakfast buffet was pretty good with a good selection of western/asian hot food as well as fruit, yogurt, bread, cereals etc. My only small complaint there was that the butter and milk was constantly running out and so you had to ask and then wait for them to be replensished. The hotel lobby toilets are worth a look! - very intersting design features. You can get a shuttle bus from Macau Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal to the hotel and there is another shuttle bus that operates from the front of the hotel to the 'City of Dreams' in Taipa. Our room had an interconnecting door to another room, so unless you want to hear your neighbours coughing, sneezing, TV and other activities ask for a room with out an interconnecting door. Now, my only real problem with the hotel were the pretty unhelpful and rude concierges; one was rude and dismissive when we asked a simple question and another, following a language misunderstanding, was very rude - simply not good enough and for that reason I would not go back to this hotel.

We stayed 1 night in this hotel. Room was big, bright and spotless. Location great, you can walk all around the city and spend the evening wandering around the flashy casinos. Room rate did not include breakfast and as we left in the morning, did not experience their food. Nice staff. They charge a few coins for using the internet. Free shuttle bus service from Hong Kong ferry terminal.
