I was surprised to read the negative reviews in TripAdvisors with regards to this hotel. My family and I (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed in this hotel for 2 nites (Dec31 2012 - Jan2,2013). To be very frank the experience was not too bad!! We went to Hong Kong for a week-stay and decided to go to Macao at the last minute. A travel agent helped to book this hotel for us as it was quite difficult to get a room at reasonable rate at the festive season. We were quite happy as we were still able to get a double room. We noticed that the staffs at the front desk were not so friendly and quite rude. There were many male staffs with nice uniforms standing like security around the hotel but they were not friendly at all. When we asked for direction, they were not willing to assist. The atrium is huge, with nice Greek statues decorations and wall paitings. We liked the water fountain at the front entrance. It was nice. We were glad that the room was spacious, the interior was quite worn out, but that was ok for us, most important the beds were comfortable, the room was clean and no smell. There are many restaurants around and a few convenience stores at walking distance outside the hotel. So we were quite happy with that. It was difficult to get taxis from this hotel. But the hotel shuttle bus is leaving to and fro from the hotel to ferry every hour. So in summary, the hotel offered very basic service. It was not too bad, but of course with the same room rate, we would prefer to stay in some other hotels since Macao has had so much to offer.
