    Budget Hotel that functions well”

    We had an overnight stay only. We booked the 5 bed room. Priced at around USD 117. If you have internet, google maps is your friend. You can take the bus from the airport. If you like to live a little cheaper, we took the free Hotel Shuttlebus to Wynn Macau. The drop off is just in front of the President Hotel. There is a bus stop a few steps away. You can ask someone where the bus stop for 10A or 3A. From there, we took the public bus 10A (you can also take 3A). There is free wifi in the bus. You can track where you are through your friend, Google Maps. Don't forget to press the stop button before you're desired stop (learned that the hard way but Google Map was my friend, so it's okay). So moving on to the review. If you prefer hotels with an elevator for convenience there is a hotel beside this one. This cheap hotel only has stairs. You have to walk up the stairs before you get to the front desk. Good thing the rooms are only on that floor. Checking in was quick and easy. Checking out was easy too. There's a key deposit of 100MOP. You can get it back after checking out. They allow leaving the luggage there after check out if you still wish to roam around Macau. Bathroom was okay. Beds and comforts were clean. Overall it was a good place to crash. If i were to comeback, I'd try another place but if I couldn't find cheap accommodation-I'd book here again.

    location, spacious room, clean

    We reserved a 3-beded room for 2 nights. Instead we were given a 5-beded room without extra charges when we checked in. The hotel is old,however it is clean and super spacious if compared to those in Hong Kong. This hotel is situated within the vicinity of buffer zone of Macau World Heritage Site. Due to this, you are able to access easily historical spots within walking distance. On top of this, plenty of food outlets can be found within the area. This hotel is just one block away from the main road which close to a bus stop and also in the coverage of free shuttle bus service provided by several hotels.

    Location

    The Villa Universal is a place to stay for a night or two. There seem to be some better places down the street. The staff was abrupt and not particularly polite, which is probably the way they are to other Chinese. The location is good, unless you want to spend time in the casinos. There is a bus, 3 and 3A, from the Hong Kong - Macau Ferry Terminal to within a hundred meters of the hotel, which is the stop past the central plaza.

    A bit old, but works well.”

    Room was fairly large size. Windows do not seal-out street sound, so chaos of the city is right there in your ear whether open or closed. No shower curtain, so water splatters everywhere. ALL the power in the room goes dead when you take your key out of the slot - don't expect to come back to the room and have any batteries charged-up. (I have seen many hotels that leave you one clearly marked power outlet that stays ON when you are out of the room - very good idea!) Slept well, pillows comfy. They do not put towels in the room, so ask for them in advance of needing them. Nice soft towels! +++!

    Although the place looks old, its location is very acccessible to the most popular attractions (Senado Square, Ruins of st. Paul and etc. ). You can also see lots of souvenir shops around the area. In other words, you don't need to go to far places just to buy items or food you want to take home with you. Moreover, it's very easy to find places you want to go if you use google map. You can buy simcard right after you arrive at the airport. The price (100HK dollars) is a bit expensive but it's very useful bec. you won't get lost travelling the places nearby. Also, there are many free shuttle bus near the big hotels , you don't need to spend lots of money for the fare cuz. they'll take you to places (different hotels) you want without spending any penny. In summary, you'll enjoy your stay in the country if you love travelling.
