“Holiday in Macau”
The hotel staff were great but the shuttle bus driver was very rude to us. He was screaming when we did not get out of the bus right away. The room we had was nice and clean except for plywood hard beds. I liked that they had nonsmoking floors in the hotel. the hotel was conveniently located when you need to need to walk to to the ferry terminal. You can catch other shuttle buses to other hotels/casinos at the ferry terminal. The hotel shuttle bus schedule was not so reliable. We checked out after a day and the hotel stored our luggages while we toured the city before we went back to Hongkong in the evening. Very convenient.
Hotel is ok. Good location. Very close from the port. Convenient for who goes or comes from Hong kong.
“There are better hotel and restaurant choices.”
The Hotel Golden Dragon is located at the eastern end of the Casino strip, on Rua de Malaca, adjacent to the Fisherman's Wharf, and the Macau ferry terminal. By all appearances it seemed like a nice, modern hotel. The rooms are small by western standards, but beds and bathroom appeared very clean. The mattresses are rock hard. This was an unpleasant surprize for my six day stay. My back hurt every morning, and it was extremely uncomfortable to try sleeping on my side. The carpet was very dirty and was in desperate need of a steam cleaning. The upholstery covering the chairs looked well worn and dirty from years of use, and I made sure to use the complimentary flip-flops when I had my shoes off. The hotel has it's own Casino, and Cabaret, and is a drop-off point for the numerous mainland China tour buses. Expect to find shopping centers on the adjacent blocks which cater excusively to the mainland chinese visitors, mostly jewelry and electronics stores. There is only Mandarin chinese language being spoken in these areas. Any Portuguese businesses have left long ago. I was surprized when I was able to converse in English with the staff at the Macau Wine and Gran Prix Museum. The better food, grocery and pharmacy choices were found several blocks away on Rua de Roma, and Rua de Londres for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You have to use the under street tunnel crossings to get to the other side of avenues.
