Holiday Inn Macau4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Booked here by mistake; but glad I made the mistake. The hotel is perfectly located between all the big casinos in Macau (note to self not the Taipa/Cotai ones) The other positive is the Handy phone that we got with our room. It came in very handy whilst walking around checking out all the local tourist spots. Would highly recommend staying here if you're heading to Macau for the sightseeing rather than the spending/gambling.
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Aug 2017. I arrived at 11pm on a Friday night from Hong Kong. Avoid getting the ferry on a Friday night as people seems to go away for the weekend. Taxi from terminal to Hotel was $35MOP, but got a very angry driver because hotel close to terminal and he was not making much. Hotel Towels are very hard and all rooms do not have the cordless phones. I asked for one but they would not give me one. Meals on hotel TV channel advertised as Breakfast $178, Lunch $98, Dinner $168 and there is a 10% service charge. I should have been charged $107.80 for lunch as advertised, but was charged more. The GOOD POINTS are 5 min walk to Hotel Grand Lisboa and centre. Cash withdrawal machine just outside the front door. Speaker in bathroom to listen to TV. Good TV reception on major news channels. Shampoo, toothpaste & comb complementary, Magnifying mirror in bathroom. I went to Maca on holiday mainly to sight-see and this hotel was perfect for me. It is very central but does not have the crowds like the big hotel (eg Hotel Grand Lisboa) If you go to Macau you must get used to the crowds (and everything that goes with that) There is a supermarket nearby that sells soft drinks and sandwiches. I found the food outlets around here mainly catered for the Asian taste. The Hotel staff were good and spoke English. The WiFi connection was good. The Hotel bus to and from the ferry terminal runs every half hour up to 10:30pm. The hotel has a swimming pool which I did not use. The small Casino at the back is run by a 3rd party. Across the road is a Police station and the bus stops in front of the hotel. This Hotel was ideal for me but if you come to gamble than go to Cotai. The other problem I have (which has nothing to do with the hotel) is you are required to put down a deposit or credit card in-print when you check in. When you check out if there is nothing to charge to your credit card you get your slip back with zero charged. I used my MasterCard and when I checked in a $337 AUD pending charge appeared on my card. I checked out and cleared my bill so nothing is chargeable to my card. However it is 24 days today and that pending transaction is still on my card. I phoned the hotel and was told that this is dependent on my local bank. I phoned my local bank in Australia and was told that Mastercard used to keep this transaction for 7 days. As at the 1/7/2017 this has changed and the transaction can stay in pending for 31 days. This could apply to all credit cards in Australia. I do not know if it applies to cards in other parts of the world. So this is not a good thing if you are a frequent traveler.
This hotel is right in the center. Nice and comfortable room. This hotel surrounding with businesses and shopping centers. Restaurants are everywhere. Lot of restaurants open twenty four hours. So you have to worry about food in the middle of night. Casinos are around it.
Stayed here on vacation overnight from Hong Kong. Generally speaking, a very old and tired looking hotel although centrally located and close to some of the big casinos as well as attractions such as the ruin of St paul and senado square. The room as well as the general layout of the hotel is definitely showing its age. But overall, everything worked well. The bed was comfortable and staff friendly and eager to assist. There's a pool and gym but didn't have time to visit. The hotel also has its own 30 interval bus to the harbour which was only 10 min away so very convenient for a short trip. Food wise.... Unfortunately we were unable to find anything interesting with close vacinity however there's lots of Chinese restaurants catered towards mainland taste buds. There's also a couple of big supermarkets within walking distance which was very much welcomed.
Nice place to stay at if you are keen to stay in Macau. But if gambling is your thing - pick the hotel in cotai. The staff is prompt and friendly. The hotel is close to the ferry and there is a bus every half hour which takes you to the casinos
Hotel Holiday Inn Macau is one of the best hotels in Macau as it combines full comforts and amenities in affordable budget. Rooms are cozy, centrally airconditioned with in- built service amenities, including free bottles of Mineral water, tea and coffee maker , Finest toiletaries in bath room, luxurious linen etc. Highlight is inclusion of free sumptuous and delicious lavishly laid Breakfast. For entertainment and casino gambling, five floors are exclusively working in the same hotel building. One can walk from the room to the casino games directly. And for the players, orders for drinks and snacks are on the house. Free transport from hotel to Ferry wharf is another free perquisite.
Hotel is good priced. cantrally located in old Macau. Walking distance from animated places. No parking. Taxi easy to get. Room are standard and honest for price. Laundry efficient and quick. Breakfast is not good compares to price.
We arrived after an 8 hour flight delay from Beijing just after midnight gasping for a drink but were informed that the bar was closed. Greeted as a Spire Elite member at check informed we had been up graded to the club level floor and offered two dinks vouchers. When the concierge staff delivered our luggage to our room on the 26th floor he gave us a map of Macau and booklet of thing to do, which was a nice touch he also showed us on the map where the local bars were to get a drink having overheard us at check-in in.. The room was clean and modern. The only slight problem I had with the room was the noise level from adjoining rooms and above. This was more to do with other guests not have consideration for other guests. Breakfast in the hotel was buffet style which covered both Asian and the western tastes. There is a nice but small indoor pool area. The hotel is central for see the sights of Macau and in walking distance to the historic district, Macau tower, Guia Hill for the lighthouse and fisherman’s wharf. The hotel runs a complementary shuttle bus every 30 minutes to Macau ferry terminal. From there you can transfer to other complementary buses to Cotai for the mini Las Vegas and airport. One recommendation is the Macau Museum. Another top tip people over 65 if you either carry your passport or a copy of the page with your date of birth on you can either get in free or reduce entrance fees in a few of the attractions.
Stayed there for a night and fell in love with this hotel. The food was so good. The rooms are cozy and pool is good. Kids enjoyed around there and the picturesque indoor garden was good place. Room service was excellent.
Holiday Inn Macau is a basic hotel, nothing fancy. It has a pool but when I was there in June 2016, it was under renovation, so I wasn't able to use the pool, as a compensation, I got free breakfast. Food was good. At a convenient location, if you want to explore Macau, this is a good choice, where there were lots of Pawn Shops around, good place to see the real Macau. Comparatively speaking, the room is pretty small.
