because it's one of the cheapest hotels in my choices, that's the reason why our group stayed at hotell sintra but to our surprise.. the small hotel we chose will be giving us a memorable stay in macau..we immediately boarded the hotel shuttle at the ferry terminal upon our arrival at the ferry terminal.upon arrival at the hotel, the small hotel we chose gave us a warm welcome .. check-in was efficiently facilitated by their very gracious staff. . and to our surprise one room was upgraded to a deluxe one since we wanted the same floor for all of us. .. another surprise was their very strategic location. a short walk to senado square and other casinos plus it's proximity to yaohan mall which offer a wide variety of international cuisine in their food court... another surprise, the room service was fast and their staff were so polite.i will surely recommend this hotel.. it won't let you down... by the way, the last surprise, their sumptuous breakfast.. so yummmy!!!

Room Tip: just tell the front desk what you want and they will be glad to accommodate your request

Stayed here for 2 nights. Awesome couch and the city view. Fast check in and out. The doorman was very nice to us, helped us to get a cab. Polite doorman. The guy from the reception was rude since he can't understand english. The breakfast buffet was also good. The room itself is awesome for me. Easy to get a cab or ride a bus. I'll recommend this to my friends.

Stayed: September 2013

Hotel Sintra is located at the heart of the Macau Peninsula. It's a few blocks (about 4-5 blocks) away from the Senado Square, around the corner from the famous Margaret's Egg Tart and it has a complimentary shuttle service that picks you up from the airport or the jetty port. If you miss the shuttle bus, just take one from the City of Dreams as it parks right in front of the hotel to pick up guests too.

We got the Standard King room (approx. Php. 6,000/night) which we were both so happy about. You see, coming from the tiny and rather cramped room that we had in Hong Kong, anything bigger than a 20 sqm hotel room is a welcome sight. I literally could do cartwheels with the size of our room. The furnishings were quite old and it's not as well-lit as I would like it to be but really, no complains here. The bed was comfy and the toilet was clean, that's all that matters most to me.

They also provided us with complimentary bottles of water which we happily took with us as we explored the city on our first day. Normally, booking hotels via Agoda doesn't include breakfast which was fine as you can just check out the cafes and fast food restaurants around the hotel. For us though, we woke up at 11AM so we opted to just head out for a delicious Macanese lunch.

Service was also very efficient and despite being a 3-star hotel, I do appreciate the cleanliness that is very much evident in every corner of the hotel. From the lobby to the room, I was quite pleased with our choice. My only wish is that they have a bigger lobby where you can hang out in while waiting for the shuttle to take you to the airport.

We checked in right after we came from Hong Kong but then we just stayed overnight in Macau. We checked in very quick. The service was fast, the staff were very friendly. There was this one guy from the hotel. I think his name was Erick Zhong I think. His service was one of the best I've Experience. We loved the rooms, It had free WiFi, Amenities and cable, and including a bathtub. But the next morning before we checked out we went to check out other Hotels nearby. Such as The Grand Lisbona and MGM. But we weren't able to wake up early because the room door bell was destroyed and we couldn't we woken up by our mother. So we had a very hard time waking up. But I've got to admit that This hotel has a great Location, great service and more.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have better views of the Grand Hotels around

The saying "Do not judge a book by its cover" seems apt when describing Hotel Sintra. The facade is totally un impressive but do not go by that. We found the rooms to be very comfortable and spacious fitted with all mordern amenities and free wifi. The staff in the restaurant and the conceirge's team were helpful and pleasant. Rio who manages the restaurant was very courteous and efficient. The location of the hotel is great because everything from eateries, casinos, stores and landmarks are within walking distance from the hotel. If you are looking for a clean cost effective place especially in the heart of Macau then Sintra is the place!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 12th floor are great

Stayed 1 night in the Sintra in downtown Macau, as convenient, and inexpensive. The staff are polite and helpful.
Getting around by foot is easy and can cover the town easily in a day.
The hotel is older and the rooms reasonable large with full bathroom (albeit small) with the usual toiletries.
The room had good air conditioning, a must for a good nights sleep.
Views from the windows are either over the main road or the rear overlooking dilapidated buildings.
The hotel seems to cater for the self organised sight seeing/shopping tourist unlike some of the other somewhat flashier hotels, that cater for the Chinese gambling tour groups.
One night here was enough to see the sights in Macau old city, moving onto the Cotai Strip was a welcome move.
