“Perfect in all aspects”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

A hidden treasure and relief in tiny and overcrowded Macau. Nice staff (could still speak in Cantonese!), clean and tidy room in nostalgic Portguese decoration, plenty of food stalls within walking distance. The only difficult thing is you would need to climb a slope for reaching the hotel, apart from that, others all perfect.

Having visited the restaurant twice a couple of years ago I said that if I ever returned to Macau I would stay at this hotel. We booked 2 weeks in advance and were fortunate to get a reservation. We had a top floor suite that was enormous. The bathroom was beautifully appointed with his and hers porcelain basins. The bed was huge and I had the best night sleep in a long time. Whilst a little out of the way we had no trouble having printed off the instructions from their website to hand to the taxi drivers.
The staff were lovely also. This establishment deserves it spot at no 2 on trip advisor.

We had a pleasant stay in Pousada when we visited Macau last week.
The hotel is slightly up a hill, surrounding by gardens and a walking trail behind. Lovely atmosphere. The deluxe room (800Mop) is of good size, nice decor, bed is comfy with clean white sheets, similar to those of 5 star hotels. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast served in elegant crockery in a lovely setting. Service was great, with the eager students trying their best and they are actually quite good at their jobs.
As the hotel has only 20 rooms, the whole place is nice and quiet with the sort of tranquility you don't find in the crowded casino hotels. After visiting some in Cotai Strip, we were certainly happy to come back to Pousada where we can really relax.
The hotel is not far from the border gate and ferry terminal. We made use of the free casino hotel shuttle buses, public buses (3.20mop) and taxis to get around Macau. Only thing is that taxi drivers were not too happy going to the hotel from border gate and twice the drivers demanded another 6 to 10 HKD on top of the price showed by the meter. If frequency of the complimentary shuttle service from Pousada can be increased, it would be more helpful to hotel guests.
Overall, a great place to stay in Macau and would still highly recommend it.

I stayed at Pousada about a year ago with my family, and it is a wonderful little hideout away from the casino madness. The rooms were clean and quiet... It was all very European, with traditional courtyards, and a lovely restaurant. The staff-in-training were very accommodating. If you're looking for something unique, I highly recommend staying at this hotel. But book in advance!

Pousada de Mong-Ha is the perfect place to stay in Macao, especially if you are interested in more than gambling. Pousada means a place of rest and welcome and used to identify traditional Portuguese inns which date back to the middle ages. A pousada reflects the architectural, decorative and gastronomic characteristics of a region. The Pousada de Mong-Ha is the hotel associated with Institute of Tourism. Located on a hilltop that was once a 19th century Portuguese fortress today there are natural gardens and woods creating an ambiance of serenity. The hotel has small patios with fountains and traditional Portuguese title accents,
The 20 rooms present a blend of East and West and include all the amenities one expects from a more expensive hotel. The multi-jet shower is amazing. The complimentary breakfast includes eggs cooked to order and many homemade items including jams and breads.

There is a free one-way shuttle three times a day to central locations including the ferry station and A-ma Temple. The Educational Restaurant is beautiful offering a wide selection of wines. The restaurant also has a Happy Hour and Afternoon Tea. Keep in mind that it is a school so the restaurant is not open on weekends and holidays.

Needless to say, the service is excellent. The students are passionate about their position and desire to offer excellent service.

Room Tip: The basic room is small so it roominess is a concern book their suite. Sing up for their "Frien...

The Pousada is lovely little training hotel away from the glitz and glitter of downtown Macao. Rooms are spacious as are bathrooms, with a Portuguese feel. Staff are helpful and polite, breakfast was good. Macao was not for us (too much glitz, we went out of curiosity), so we were delighted to be out of the way. Don't miss a walk in the surrounding park to see the locals doing their exercises first thing in the morning. We won't be returning to Macao, but we would recommend this hotel to anyone going there.

ROOM: We stayed in a standard room on ground level. Rooms are small but very clean and tastefully decorated in traditional Portuguese style. Room amenities were basic, but we had everything we needed. The bathroom was particularly small, and could only accommodate one person at a time.

SERVICE: As the hotel serves as training ground for students of Instituto de Formação Turística, I did not expect a professional level of service. However, most students were eager to help, and an instructor was present to assist them during our check in. Overall, they were able deliver the service we required, and most were courteous, and acknowledged and greeted us every time. A few managed to exceed our expectations. I also thought that service here is much better than in any midscale hotel I have stayed before.

LOCATION: I like the neighborhood surrounding the hotel, as it is not within the casino areas, but relatively quiet, and surrounded by tree-lined streets, shops, gardens and museums. Exact location of the hotel however may be problematic for some as it requires steep uphill walk. Too bad for us, as we've decided to take the bus before check in and had to pull our luggage and carry our bags on our way.

VALUE: As it is government-owned, the hotel is exempted from service charge and tax. We were pleasantly surprised by the selection and quality of breakfast buffet, as we only expected a set continental breakfast. These, along with complimentary minibar and Wi-Fi, make the hotel an excellent value.

I recommend this to travelers looking for value who are not particularly concerned with small room size and uphill walk. Patience and understanding to help students develop confidence and skills in the hospitality industry are also expected.

The school is advised to strengthen students language skills so as to preclude students from conveniently just saying no to guest requests which otherwise would have been feasible.
