Nice Stay....

Stayed for only one night, but pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel. From entrance, check-in, to room was smooth with no hassle. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They have your interests in mind. The room was spacious with a good sized bathroom. The bed was also comfortable. All in all a very relaxing and nice stay. The breakfast buffet was also noteworthy with high quality preparations from eggs to eggs benedict to order along with home made crepes. The pastries, crepes, waffles were exquisite as one can expect from the Sofitel brand. Free shuttle from the Macau ferry is a short trip which makes things convenient as well. Would highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel staff speaks English and is very friendly and helpful. Ruins of St Paul's church are an easy short walk away. Free high-speed wireless internet was greatly appreciated.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Use the free hotel buses to get around the city if you want to save money on cabs. Even if the buses don't go directly to where you want, you can take the Sofitel bus to one of their major drop points and catch other hotel/resort buses from there onward to where you really want to go. No one asks or cares if you're staying at their resorts or not, so anyone is welcome on any hotel/resort bus.

A let-down to the otherwise superb Sofitel chain

The Hotel is located near the old city center and the river. The river view is nothing special. The hotel's plush entrance is opposite a busy street and a part of town that is still being developed. You walk along (~500m) a busy street to get to the center. The lobby and common areas are grand, plush and nicely designed. The small casino is next to the lobby and a night club. I did not visit the casino or restaurant so I can't comment on them. The room was standard modern feel but seeing I was in the "Superior" class I expected more. The room was supposed to be non-smoking but clearly had been smoked in and had received the air-freshener treatment. Unfortunately the stay was ruined by the complete incompetence of the hotel staff. Starting with the manager, assistant manager and going all the way to the front desk clerk. Any deviation from a standard request (e.g. move to non-smoking room, request late checkout, find a late night cab) was either met with complete confusion requiring 3 calls to other operators or was apologetically refused explaining that "it just can't be done". Due to a mistake with my original booking I ended up having to call the travel agent at midnight using my own cell-phone and wait out the endless (53 min) hold time. I would have expected the hotel's own reservation system to be able to do this using their cheaper land lines. My phone bill covered the cost of the room! Overall, a stylish hotel, located in a "developing" part of town and run by completely incompetent staff that clearly has not received the standard training. I do not recommend staying here! There are many other similarly priced options closer to all the other Hotels and main waterfront.

A free shuttle picks you up at the ferry terminal. It comes every 20-30 mins and takes about 20 mins to reach the hotel.

Comfortable Stay

Received wonderful complimentary upgrade to Executive Floor. Came with Hermes toiletries and comfy beds. Liked the tv in the bathroom but didn't use it. Workout area was sparse and touch screens on two machines didn't work. The 17th floor lounge was trendy but the breakfast buffet in Mistral had better, broader selections. There is currently a MJ exhibit on the 2nd floor including the costume from Thriller and the white glove.

Luxurious and Comfortable Experience

My husband and I had a great time. The hotel staff were very helpful, polite and professional. All the details are taken care of. The hotel room where we stayed has a great view and the bed is super comfortable. What I enjoyed the most was their bathroom because it has another flatscreen tv where you can watch just about anything while you soak yourself in a bubblebath. The food is super and the gym and swimming pool amenities are perfect. Everything we needed was carefully and tastefully provided which made us feel like king and queen! We will certainly stay there again the next time we go to Macau.

Beautiful rooms

The rooms have everything you could ask for. Internet service, king beds, marble floors, even a TV and phone over the bathtub. The lunch buffet was excellent. The pool was closed and the casino is nothing special. The area right around this lovely hotel is quite run-down. Free handy bus service to the ferry terminal where you can connect to most other casinos.

Great hotel!

This hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of the major casino hotels in Macau. This hotel does have a casino, but if you're looking for Western casino games, you will have to go elsewhere. The customer service is exceptional and the rooms are phenomenal. Easy access by walking or cab to the rest of the island. Would highly recommend.
