Macau Masters Hotel

room

decent toilet19,20 February 2011

Although it has been more than half a month since I came back from Macau/Hong Kong, but the memory is still fresh in mind. In search of a decent hotel which is convenient as well as close to all the attractions, I bumped into this web site specifically for Macau Hotels: http://www.macau.com/en. I find most of the prices on this web site to be reasonable & there is no additional taxes or charges on their published price.

From the reviews, it was decent with rooms which has all the standard features of a 3-star hotel like:

  • slippers
  • electric kettle
  • toilet ammenities & even tooth brush
  • toilet with long bath & quality fittings
  • LCD TV with cable channels
  • Mini bar

The room I got was facing the pier, not much view but the room was clean & had a heater! This was a great relief especially on the day I arrived, it was 9-10 degrees celcius. Another observation in Macau / Hong Kong is that many places do not even have a heater to begin with unlike previously when I went Perth, many places had it.

Overall, this hotel lives up to the expectation of a convenient budget hotel (though price in RM is not exactly budget) with some luxuries but with a averagely small room. However, the only slight downside is that the bed is on the hard side as what I read earlier from other reviews, maybe a signature of the budget hotels & do take note that all Macau hotels I see have a big surcharge for weekends, around USD 20 more. The price paid for a Saturday was HKD 700 or USD 91 which converts to RM 284.

Transport from the ferry terminal is easy as one can take the shuttle bus to Ponte 16 Sofitel Hotel & then just walk around 5 minutes. For transportation to Taipa, the Venetian shuttle bus stops right outside the hotel! Furthermore, for the historical attractions like Senado Square & ruins of St Paul, it is possible to walk (around 10-15 minutes)
