Instead of the in-your-face kind of hotel that you find in Macau the entrance to the Sofitel on Ponte 16 is best described as old world opulence.
Check in was quick, bellhop chatty, everyone was smiling and friendly.
We were upgraded to a riverview room (booked a city view room) - the only downside is the windows were not clean enough to take a good photo of the river/port - pity. The room itself is richly decked out in dark wood furniture and all the furnishing (curtains, furniture coverings etc) were of very high quality.
The bed is King size and very comfortable (soft and snuggly mattress topper). A nice comfy chaise lounge to sit and type this review. The bathroom is well laid out in all glass and mirror with an nice deep bathtub to soak tired and weary feet after a day's sightseeing.
Plenty of powerpoints and the room even includes a built-in international plug adapter (not voltage converter).
The daily turn down service is appreciated. A small foot mat along with slippers are left on each side of the bed. Bottled water and a glass also put on the side table.
It's nice not to have to deal with the madding crowds that frequent the lobby of other Macanese hotels (e.g. Grand Lisboa). A peaceful haven away from the action although there is a casino at the Sofitel.
A true Sofitel experience.More
