We enjoyed every bit of our stay here. What a gorgeous hotel. Hotel is refurbished. The staff are all very polite and attentive. The staff also took the initiative to take a commemorative photo for us when we checked out. The decor is charming so many Chinese and Portuguese style elements. That bed was a bit hard but overall is good. Definitely would stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights in an ordinary double room. The room was huge and comfortable, spotlessly clean, with an amazing multi-jet shower. The hotel staff (all trainees) were faultless - polite, friendly and endlessly obliging. On the evening that we had booked a table for dinner at the Institute's restaurant it started to rain just as we were about to leave. The receptionist insisted on escorting us through the labyrinthine building so we could get there without getting wet.

Dinner at the "Educational" restaurant was a very pleasant experience; the menu was ambitious and somewhat over-complicated, but the food was prepared perfectly. They even make their own bread, and it was a wonderful antidote to the dreadful bread in Hong Kong. The service was immaculate and very friendly.

Breakfast at the hotel was very good indeed, particularly the pastries & croissants, and at dusk
we particularly enjoyed having drinks on the hotel balcony under enormous fans.

As an antidote to the increasing noise & squalor of central Macau the Pousada de Mong-Ha is unbeatable. It's not actually very far from the centre of town - we walked to the Leal Senado in about 10 minutes, and the taxi fare back again was around 25 patacas. It is quiet, relaxed, clean and surprisingly cheap.

The Pousada de Mong Ha is a real oasis of cleanliness, professional hospitality, and presents beautiful characteristics of Chinese and Portugese style without the high-rise modernism of other hotels.
The personalised attention we got by being in a 23 room hotel staffed by tourism trainees was extremely pleasant. The style and furnishings of the hotel reflects an aura of a unique era of true hospitality and the surroundings of the hotel, including the restaurant are tastefully and carefully manicured and well presented. Well done the Institute for Tourism.
The Four Hour minibus tour of Macau from the Ferry Terminal run by Greyline is a pleasant way of seeing the highlights of the city and is excellently researched and presented in Cantonese, Mandarin and English.

After browsing some reviews on this very website, we went for the Pousada de Mong-Ha (Mong-Ha Hotel). It seemed to offer a very good price for excellent service. And we were not disappointed!

As Macau is not too big, going to the hotel from the ferry terminal (arriving from HK) was simple. We took a cab, costing us less than 30 HKD one way. The hotel is a bit up a the Mong-Ha hill (where there also seems to be a fortress, which we did not visit however). While this locates it outside the city centre (where most of the sights are), getting to the centre is easy: simply take Bus 5, at a cost of MOP 3.10 (have exact change, which the front desk can provide). The newer casinos are on the southern island, and will likely involve changing bus along the way - or taking a cab, of course. Cabs are not expensive to take, since the Macau not too big anyway. The hotel provides a bus to the city centre, but it only goes around 3x per day - 10am, 11:30am and 6pm, which was not convenient for us.

The front desk staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, despite some minor challenges with communication (they were not speaking perfect English, but trying quite hard).

The room was excellent, clean and tastefully decorated in blue-and-white ceramic tile style. The pillows were extremely soft, and one medium-soft one was also provided in the room. If you like firm pillows, you may have to order one extra if needed. The bathroom was good, and came with a shower that had "massage jets" (too low for me [I'm about 6ft/1.8m], but probably good for people of lower height). We also availed of room service to order whisky - I ordered a double, and got served something that looked like a 1 1/2 - I got charged for a single (at 50 MOP), so that was ok.

The hotel is laid out very nicely, and features some roof top gardens, if you are into that kind of thing.

There's Wi-Fi in the room, along with a PC (running XP) - each room has their own Wi-Fi, in fact. TV is present, and had some English channels.

Breakfast was included, and was quite good - apart from the buffet, coffee was offered by the waiters, as were the eggs, done to your preference (mine being soft-boiled, which was executed perfectly). The only thing missing may have been cheese, but the selection was good enough to make up for that.

When we left, the hotel called us a taxi to go to the airport (which is on the southern island). We left our luggage there and explored the casinos for a couple of hours, which provide free shuttles from and to the airport and ferry terminals.

I was an early booster of this Pousada, staying there whenever I was in Macau. Before the big, new western style casinos there were only the old casino hotels which were ok but nothing special. I especially like the location of the Pousada, on the hill below the fort and away from the casino hotel areas. It is such a peaceful area in the mornings with all the locals doing Tai Chi.
However, the excellent service the students try and give and the restaurant no longer outways the tattered carpets and moldy smell of the hotel rooms I recently stayed in. I like the new restaurant (a few years old now) but it was closed for renovation when I was there this past January. The prices of the restaurant has also creeped up. The Institute for Tourism Studies should consider a remodel of the hotel rooms. Today, there are excellent deals in the big casinos for contemporary, clean rooms! Tip to walkers: If you want to be away from the casino area and like local neighborhoods this is the place. Go a few blocks to the Pearl River and walk along the river until you get into the older Portuguese historic areas. You can actually make a circle route through most of the interesting sights of Macau and end up back at the pousada.

This is a nice and quiet place away from the madding crowd of gamblers and shoppers, but looking on the not so bright side of it, you could say there's nowhere to shop or dine within walking distance (Well, there was one on the hill but it was closed for Xmas at the time of my stay). The hotel building looks nice in photos, but having stayed at several pousadas and paradores of historicl importance in Portugal and Spain, I wasn't particularly impressed with this architecture with just a thin veneer of pseudo-Portuguese culture. I expected rather too much about the view from the hill, and naturally I was disappointed at the view of the unclean, poverty-stricken apartment blocks surrounding the hill. Once inside the hotel, I was allocated a fairly large space that had a large entry room with a beautiful classical desk with a computer on top for free Internet connexion, next to which a separate bedroom with a small balcony appeared, and a toilet with shower. The staff (in fact hospitality/catering students) were polite but a bit too formal and unfriendly, or this is because their English was so limited. One of them suggested I should have some complimentary "welcome drink" at the bar, which turned out to my chagrin to be a lukewarm much too diluted watery non-alcoholic sweet drink with a slight trace of honey. In short, it was almost undrinkable though no harm was done to my stomach. The hotel offers free shuttle bus service to the sea port immigration, Senado Square (the very centre of Macau) and as far as the islands of Taipa and Coloane in the south. One morning I chose to go to Coloane's beach, which was the farthest I could get to on the shuttle bus. Upon arrival I realised that the beach was blocked by some construction work barriers and the sea was nowhere to see, so I decided to get back to the bustling civilisation on the main island by hopping on the same hotel shuttle bus again. But surprisingly the driver employed by the hotel flatly refused to pick me up with a very hostile gesture, revved up the engine and was gone with exhaust fumes. I was lucky to catch a municipal bus some time later. I shan't tolerate this sort of treatment, so I'll look for another accommodation next time.

I read the reviews on this property and thought we'd give it a try as we would only be in Macau one night. Although the property itself is charming and the service is good, if you are looking for convenient proximity to the casinos, this probably isn't the option for you as getting taxi service from the hotel isn't instantaneous. The rooms themselves are fairly large - ours had a fairly large entry room which also housed a desk and space for luggage, a separate bedroom, and a bathroom with shower. All that aside, it was a good price/value option given the research we had done on other hotel options in Macau.

Over the last few years I've stayed here many times. Every room category - from single to suite - is very good, with the spacious doubles probably representing the best value. There's nothing else in Macau at the same price level that's remotely in the same league, especially given that there are no additional taxes (I assume because it's a government institution) and that (the very good) breakfast and broadband are included. The only downside is the consistent inefficiency of the reception staff - I understand that they're students, but they'd never survive a week in a mainstream hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights whilst visiting Macau. It is beautifully built in the Portugese style with tiles and fountains. Large rooms with balcony and great bathroom. Breakfast is included in the room price and what a magnificent spread it is. The espresso coffee machine makes divine coffee often hard to find in Asia. Free internet was very useful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Macau

Absolutely nothing to complain about here. Service is top notch and rooms (ours was the standard room, number 103) are well kept, but rates (holiday, weekend, or regular) are far cheaper than most hotels'.

The young staff are very professional and helpful, and they're one of the best, if not the best, thing about the place. Minibar items are free and breakfast is good. The cable channels are limited, but that's okay, really.

Location is excellent, up a hill but close to bus and taxi stops / shops / restaurants. From this quiet area, you can go to any casino/attraction you want to. It's perfect if you enjoy a good night's sleep as much as you enjoy Macau nightlife.

Hello Teresa, Yes there is a taxi drop off at the front door but you need to climb some steps to enter the reception area and in fact a taxi is a must because the hotel is located on a hill with a steep slope leading to it's entrance. They do have suites but I am not sure if they can take in 3 adults and a 12 year old and it would be best if you checked with the hotel direct. They do have a website as well as an e-mail for making reservations and posting queries. The rates depend on the day of the week and if they fall on special holidays. Hope the above will be of help Enjoy your stay in Macau
