Hotel Lisboa is perhaps Macau’s defining landmark for navigation, being where all roads converge on the Macau Peninsula. It is also one of the founding casino hotels in the then-overseas province of Portugal. This time, I picked staying over in Hotel Lisboa Macau to have convenient access near everywhere, especially with the Praca Ferreira Amaral bus interchange just beside it.
I had booked the cheapest room type of Standard Twin, but the front desk said that my room has been “upgraded” during check-in. Walking in to the room, it certainly felt luxurious, though I’m not sure if this room type is still the Standard Twin.
The spacious interior of my room, which comes with a writing desk and separate seating area.
The twin beds in my room.
The side table between the two twin beds.
The minibar is below the writing desk. All drinks and snacks in it were free of charge.
The separate seating area.
There is a separate rack for luggage.
Coffee and tea making facilities are at the corner counter, along with two bottles of mineral water.
The great surprise for me was certainly in the toilet.
The glorious toilet bowl in the toilet with a personal spotlight shining on it.
Lots of toiletries and amenities by the side.
Instead of a regular shower and bathtub which is impressive to me, the shower here comes as a spaceship.
More soaps are found in the spaceship which comes with )if I remember them correctly) 3 horizontal water spray nozzles, with different spray patterns, and a regular handheld shower head. There is also a speaker for radio and a fan for ventilation, though the radio was unfortunately not working in the spaceship.
On the other end of the spaceship is a foot massager with water jets too. The pillow at the bottom is indeed actually for your head, as the spaceship doubles up as a bathtub too, on top of a mega spraying capsule. It was easily one of the longest showers I have ever taken with figuring out all the different functions in the spaceship.
Overall, a rather pleasant stay in Hotel Lisboa with the upgrade to a higher floor and unexpected room amenities. In the end, my room did cost a bit more since I “donated” HK$200 to the Casino Lisboa the next morning, but oh well, all in the fun of Macau I guess, completing the gaming experience.
