Once Upon A Cantonese Winter: Metropark Hotel, Macau

Feb 17, 2011 — I was still anxious inside the bus and was carefully looking at every possible landmark I can remember. I’ve passed through the Orient Arch about 4-5 times in my recent trips so at least I knew if it’s time to get off the bus. 

Once we alighted at the Orient Arch bus stop, we had no idea how we can reach Metropark Hotel. I was trying to picture the place as I saw it in Google map but it didn’t help. So we just walked along the small alleys, made a few turns and luckily we reached Rua De Pequim - where our hotel is located.

Soon we reached the front doors of our hotel.

I booked us a superior twin room four months before our trip through Asiatravel.com. I got it for only HKD 456 (around  PHP 2645) without breakfast. The hotel's location makes it a perfect place to rest - away from the noise created by the casinos.

I'm not picky with hotels. As long as the rooms and toilets are clean, I'm okay with it. As for the location, I preferred Metropole Hotel but with the deal I got, deadma na ang 10-15 minutes walk to Senado Square! And by the way, Metropark also offers a free shuttle service to and from the ferry terminal.  I just remembered now (as I write this) that the reason why we took the public bus is that we failed to locate the hotel shuttle at the terminal's parking lot. =p
