The hotel is in the midst of buildings but it has a nice vantage on a hill. We underestimated how far and steep the hill was when we walked up with our luggages. We highly recommend to take a taxi to the hotel if you have heavy luggages.
The hotel has an historic atmosphere with interesting layout, lovely Portuguese hand-painted tiles in the breakfast room and lovely gardens. We had a spacious deluxe room and the bed is so comfortable. Breakfast is more than adequate with a nice ambience. The dining restaurant has good choice in their menu. All the hotel staff is very helpful and friendly.
We made use of the free shuttle to A-Ma temple, then took bus to Coloane to see the pandas in Seac Pai Van Park. The pandas didn’t disappoint us, they were super cute! From Coloane we took bus to Senado Square and St Paul’s ruins. The public bus is very accessible and cheap, but make sure you have correct change as bus driver does not give change; minimum charge is Macau/HK$3.20 however it’s fine if you let the bus keep the change.
