This describes not just what I think of Hotel Lisboa in Macau, but also how I felt when my sis and I stayed there. The decor was unashamedly flamboyant to the point of kitschy. It smelled like a grande dame, with a "I-don't-give-a-hoot-about-those-newfangled-hotels-I've-got-more-personality" sort of mustiness. We stayed at the old wing - cheaper rates. We couldn't figure out the ins and outs of the place - we were always getting lost on our way to and from the lobby or the several entrances and exits. The hallways are winding and convoluted, but therein lies the magic. I felt like Alice in Wonderland stumbling across another passageway we haven't explored, but there's always something curioser and curioser to see. Particularly the rabbit warren of underground passages that, according to my sister, are (in)famous for the salacious goings-on there. We spent the better part of an hour wandering these halls getting an eyeful of the voluptuous goods on parade, wishing I were a man (a rich one). We explored the new hotel, too. There were several elaborate, beautiful, interesting art pieces on display. Our bedroom was spacious. The beds ultra comfy and bouncy. Wi-Fi and minibar items are free. But we could hear loud talking through the walls. I guess that's what you get for staying in the old wing - less elegant neighbors. My sister got our room on sale, and breakfast was not included, so I can't say anything about the food. But the bath was absolutely delicious! We were so surprised to find that our bathtub was a jacuzzi - complete with flashing colored lights. I couldn't resist having my photo taken (covered in bubbles, of course). So my rating for the spa is from my bathtub experience. Okay, so you can tell I haven't stayed in many hotels of that caliber. Well, what can I say? This is my review, and in my opinion, Lisboa was fun and I had the time of my life staying there.
