I arrived at the Macao Airport from Jakarta around 8 PM. The weather was very cold, I think 12 - 15 degrees Celsius at that time. I took a taxi going from the airport to the Hotel, it's just less than 15 minutes and cost around MOP 60. The Hotel entrance was very nice, I like the smell that you can feel it all over the hotel. Check in was quick, I had to deposit a cash of HKD 1000 upon check in which is common case upon checking in a Hotel. I booked the hotel through Macau.com around HKD 899 and I was upgraded to Grand Suite room. The room is very nice, big, very clean, very comfortable, large King size bed, large plasma TV, nice sofa, nice drawer, big in room safety deposit, compliment of espresso with coffee maker and more over the bathroom is very nice tidy and really come in handy with a nice bathtub, shower and rain shower. The Hotel also offers two very comfortable shower robe which come in handy in a very cold weather. I really love it. What this Hotel offers is worth the money.
The Hotel staff is very helpful but not all of them speak very well English, but Jerry is a great person to talk to at the reception if you need anything.
You can find a good local restaurant at the back of the Hotel just around the corner, so no problem with breakfast. If you can not speak their languages, no worries because all the food come with picture and some have English description.
The Hotel is walking distance to some tourist attraction such as the Golden Flower, Fisherman's Wharf and some museum. You can take taxi to Sands Hotel which will cost you only MOP 13 and couple of minutes then take their free shuttle bus to Venetian Hotel and City of Dream.
Overall Macao is a small city, you can almost walk to go anywhere so distance doesn't matter at all. If you like to stay at the Hotel that a bit far from Casino crowd, you can choose this lovely Hotel although this Hotel has their own Casino.
The Hotel offers free shuttle Bus going to Macau ferry terminal to go to Hong Kong, the shuttle Bus will be available every 15 minutes.
I will definitely be back to this Hotel.
One thing that I found, the restaurant at the 3rd Floor is a bit pricey and doesn't suit my taste, so I would suggest to take a walk and find some nice local restaurant, I would recommend Shanghai Bund for dinner, it's somewhere downtown but walking distance from the Hotel at the second floor of small shopping center.
Tips for first time traveler who wants to go to Hong Kong by ferry, if you carry big luggage, first buy the Turbojet ticket 45 minutes ahead then walk to the luggage check in counter at the back and check in the luggage, the big one will cost you MOP 30 and the medium MOP 20. Show the ticket at the entrance of Turbojet locket, pass the immigration queue and go to the waiting room. Upon arrival at the Hong Kong ferry Terminal after the immigration walk to the right and you can claim back your luggage. The ferry from Macau to Hong Kong will take around an hour and using the Turbojet is comfortable enough.
