This is a great hotel in down town Kuching's waterfront area, with peaceful river view across to north shore. For the price it charges, it is also great value for money. The rooms are spacious, fixtures are old but in working order; aircon is powerful and will be nicer if it can be controlled. Best is still the water front... More

This hotel is highly recommended for location, value for money and good service. The hotel is by the river giving you a nice river view and it is very near to Top Spot Seafood Food Court. It is right in the town centre very near to all major attractions in the city and only about 15-20 min drive from the... More

The hotel is in a great spot, close to a number of food options and right on the river, which is great if you are located on the river side of the hotel as far as the view is concerned. We were in the recently renovated wing of the hotel and whilst it was comfortable enough, it was let down... More

Started with not getting picked up at the airport which was supposed to have been arranged. Short trip, hotel charged $65 Ringit and taxi was only $26 Ringit. Had "Club" room which was supposed to be Club check in. Wasn't the case, check in with everyone else. Get the "Im new" button person checking us in, advise no car waiting,... More

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
