the royal hotel macau – a good find

In places on April 4, 2011 at 12:57 pm

thanks to a P10 international seat sale, camille and i decided to book a trip to macau – a place she loves and has been meaning to share with me.

the first task – find a hotel. being a major tourist place, there are a TON of hotels in macau ranging from the big swanky casino ones to smaller inn-type places. after scouring numerous review sites, we settled on the royal on estrada vittoria. we’re glad we did.

the royal isn’t smack in the center of town. it’s about a 15-minute walk to senado square and right beside a couple of bus stops (estorial is one, and some buses pass right by it “hotel royal” stop). but the surrounding area contained more residential buildings and it was very interesting to see that side of macau.

what made the hotel location more charming was the park located right in front

the hotel itself was quite comfortable. very well-appointed and quiet. the staff was very helpful and the price – at something like $80/night was just right. the only issue we had was that there was no free wifi which, and i’ll never get tired of saying this, we believe every hotel nowadays should have.

but we will recommend this hotel to people visiting macau. many reviews complained of hotels that were loud or smelled too much of smoke, etc. the royal had none of this and all in all made for a very pleasant stay.
