any recommendation for hotel in Macau?

Stayed at Holiday Inn end of Nov, good location as it's short walk to Galaxy StarWorld Casino Wynn's and MGM Grand. Price is quite reasonable, I book at HK 560 before tax.

I just went to Macau. I can recommend you some hotel or the hotel i am staying at. you can take a look at Metropark hotel. The location of the hotel is okie. I would say its quite a convenient location and room are quite nice. they also provided 1/2 hrly buses to the ferry terminal. I book it ard 130 per nite with UOB travel planner

If you are looking for a casino hotel, Casa Real looks not bad too. I actually wanted to book Casa Real but it fully book. The location is just mins walk away from the ferry terminal to HK and location is convenient. If i din rememeber wrongly it should cost around 115 per nite.

Anyway, Macau is a very small place, you can almost walk to anywhere, else from Metropark hotel.. U can even walk to the ferry terminal from metropark hotel as its abt a 15-20 min slow walk, 5 mins bus jorney.
