I've been to HK several times but this was my first time in Macau. As you may know, if Singapore is expensive, if HK is expensive, expect that Macau is relatively more expensive in terms of accommodation. Ole Tai Sam Un Hotel is one of the few more affordable hotels in Macau. Rua de Felicidade is not a very common place known by taxi drivers so be prepared to show a map with some Chinese translation. I was lucky enough to have captured a screen shot of the street's map using my phone's GPS, otherwise, the driver would not have known. Since the street to the hotel was small, the cab dropped us off on the main road and we were on our own looking for it like we were in a maze. We spoke to several people including a street vendor (who spoke very good English; I was so impressed) and some Filipinos but they couldn't point us out to the location. By luck, we passed by the right alley and saw the sign. Ole Tai Sam Un is a small but new and very clean hotel. It is centrally located since you can walk to the Senate square and the ruins of St. Paul. The room was just right for two people and the bathroom was impressive; it had modern and beautiful fixtures! They had free wi-fi too. Staff were friendly and we could leave our bags during check-out. I'd give this hotel a go but expect some treasure hunting game before you can see this secret gem. Suggest you arrive during the day especially if you don't have the appetite for risk and patience.
