“Old fashion charm”
Reviewed 13 June 2012 via mobile

Yes it may be a little older than the swankier hotels in Macau but one cannot deny its charm especially the view from our room of the Macau tower and the bridge.

A very relaxed hotel, with an atmosphere of faded ambition but still comfortable and clean. Rooms at the front have a great view of Taipa and the tower, rooms at the back are dark as they face the hillside. Internet access is very expensive - 150 patacas for 24 hours, but is free in the tiny 'business centre'. The swimming pool described in old reviews is no longer open unfortunately, but on the plus side there is a roof terrace on the 4th floor with one of the best views in Macau.

This place is disgusting. I don't know when the other reviews were written, but this place has suffered severe water damage since. The smell of mold and mildew are permanent. You can see the mold coming through the wall paper. The staff are unfriendly and the buffet will scare you. My advice: Spend a couple more bucks, stay somewhere else, and enjoy Macau.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else.

Spent 2 nights (29-31 March 12) in this hotel, booked through agent in HK.
The hotel standard room is big, basically it provided all our needs and the facilities are close to 5 stars hotel. The room are very clean and quite.It has a very nice night view (Macau tower & bridges).

Although the location of this hotel is outside the city (senado square) but they have free shuttle services and the taxi fare are with minimum charge (13 MOP) from Senado square.

Room Tip: We ( 2 couples) actually booked a twin bed room for sharing. Its really very big enough for us.

We spent the night in Macau and booked this hotel (now called Riveria) via a travel company in Hong Kong.

To be honest, we didn't actually spent that much time in the hotel as we were only there for 1 night, but essentially, the hotel catered for our needs.

For breakfast, there was a buffet with a choice for all. Rooms were standard with good bathroom facilities.

Hotel Ritz Macau, now renamed, Hotel Riviera Macau is in a wonderful location in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Just down the street from the Chinese consulate, so there are cameras and guards on the nearby street corners. Macau is not a big place and u can walk most places of interest easily. Rooms were clean but dated, views only from street side. Breakfast buffet was good with fairly wide ranging selection. English is not the staffs first language so be aware. Would recommend for those not wanting to stay downtown.

We stayed at this hotel, now called the Riviera, for several nights and enjoyed our stay. Whether or not it's well-located depends on your interests. For the historic areas of Macau it's ideal, with the 20 minute walk to the town centre taking in many of the top sights on the way (or you can just go up the main road for convenience). However, it is not so handy for the casinos as they are on the far side of the city, although there is a free shuttle bus that goes over there every 30 minutes. The top of Penha Hill is just a few minutes walk from the hotel and has great views of the tower and new bridge - especially dramatic at night. We tried one of the two restaurants in the hotel and it was perfectly decent, but there are 3 really great places at the bottom of the hill, just a couple of minutes walk away, including Henri's Galley (which has fabulous African Chicken), Tabuchi (Japanese) and a 'Curry House' (which seeemed to have mostly Chinese food, and was heaving every time we walked past).

The hotel was clean and well maintained, and I found the staff professional and helpful, with most of the desk staff speaking good English. It's a good mid-range choice for a peaceful stay in Macau.
