I was disappointed as the swimming pool was under renovation at the time which was one of the main reasons I chose this hotel. To compensate, they upgraded me to a Superior room (which I appreciated). Request for a city view as the you don't have a view at all in the other side of the hotel as there is another building being contructed.
Nice place to stay if you want to be away from the casinos and would like to have a local feel of Macau. It is a few minutes walk from the ruins. If you're going to be out most of the time though, I'd recommend that you stay in a more inexpensive hotel as you wouldn't enjoy the amenities.
Food tip: Don't forget to try the porkchop buns and Portuguese egg tarts!
Downside: Their shuttle service is limited. They don't have a direct service that goes to the Venetian Hotel the whole day, you would need to go to the ferry terminal first at certain times of the day.
