I went to Macau for a conference and the organizer put us in New Century Hotel. But even though I don't need to pay for my room, this is not a hotel I'll recommend to you. Its location is OK -- 10 minutes' walk and you'll get to the busiest part of Taipa. Otherwise, unless you need to visit the university, I can't see any reason why you would find it convenient. You can find taxis but during the busy hours you'll have to wait. The room is spacious but facilities are minimal. Cleaniness is barely acceptable. And you won't find a real non-smoking room. Air quality is pretty bad. In terms of service, quite honestly I don't think the hotel is in full operation (even the lifts are not functioning well). It's primarily a hotel for low-end package Mainland tourists. When I checked-in, the person at the counter found it a surprise and he simply didn't know what to do.
