A mix feeling when check in. Photos looks really nice but was given a shanty room with dirty carpet, smelly room and broken bathroom. Apparently they have 2 wings, Sadong Wing is the newly renovated building with sparkling rooms and Serapi Wing the shanty corner. Two very different conditions render this hotel with a 5 star rating at one end... More

We stayed in room 437 for 6 nights with a room facing the river. The view was great, but unfortunately we were right across the river from a mosque, which we had the chanting going on for hours at night, and the early prayers waking us up at 4.30 am, so keep that in mind if your looking for some...

This hotel has a great location, right on river and central. Quite an attractive lobby and restaurant which gave a good impression. However that ended for us when exiting the lift on the 7th floor in the older wing, upon seeing the filthy greatly stained carpets all down the hallways. Desperately needs replacing. Room had brillant view over river and... More

I was in Kuching to visit some friends last month to celebrate the Gawai Festival. On returning from the interior (where the courtesy granted to their guests by the longhouse people was second to none), I was stocked to encounter the "cold" treatment given to me upon my check-in at the front office. Granted it was a busy period for... More

We booked an executive twin-sharing room and make clear that it had to be a room on a non-smoking floor as one of us suffer from asthma. The result: we were put in an executive room on the 10th floor of the old wing. The room -- and indeed the wing that we were in -- looked a little worn,... More

Great hotel, friendly staff, big room with amazing bed - one of the best I have ever slept in in a hotel.The bathroom is quite basic but adequate. Lovely view of the river.
