The appearance of the building may look deceivingly old but the interior is totally refurbished. The room is cozy, clean and spacious. One probably would not find a more centrally located hotel in Kuching. Walking distance to most landmarks. Be sure to dine at the famous seafood hawker center right opposite the hotel. Great overall ambiance and experience. Will definitely... More

We had a brilliant stay here with our 2 kids aged 4 and 6. We stayed for about 6 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast divine and the location just lovely. We loved the pool and went on a couple of tours organised by the hotel. Highly recommend this place for families as... More

We spent 5 nights here In January. It is a pleasant hotel and rooms are spacious and theA/C works ver well.The staff were very friendly especially the lady in the tour office. We only had breakfast in the hotel which was an extensive buffet, but the hot food could have been a bit warmer. It is centrally located on the... More

We stayed in this hotel in October 2014. The hotel is located next to the river and a few shopping malls as well as the outside food stall market 'Top Spot'. It is also in a walking distance to the museums, Chinese street and Pink Mosque. The hotel is a bit outdated, feels like 60s, but it still is comfortable... More

Staff were very helpful, checkin easy, view from riverfront room was excellent. The breakfast was very good as it offered a large range of Asian and Western foods. Unfortunately this hotel is aging, and it shows. Grubby-looking carpets, poor standard of cleanliness in bathroom, broken fixtures,etc., did not ruin my stay, but did not do the hotel any favours

Attentive customer service, they responded to my request promptly. 3. Breakfast was not too bad. But this hotel is old and aged. The room showed... More

My last stay in this hotel was five years ago, this time I stayed on my own and found the hotel very amenable to single travellers. Refurbishment has taken place, mainly in the reception and dining areas and certain bedrooms. All the staff are efficient, although I feel maybe the reception staff could be a tad more friendly. The big... More

Great service and great staff. However there are a few tiny things that at slowly ate away at the otherwise great stay. Firstly the smell of smoke and dampness. We were a family on Christmas holiday and all 3 of our rooms was on the smoking floor. After 3 nights, everything in our luggage was smelling like a damp cloth... More

Overall is good, the room was perfect and comfortable. It's suitable for family treats and business purposes. Love the room. Breakfast was ok but can be improved, for example the waiter should pour hot drinks to the guest. Plus, the staff should be more polite.

Very strategic place hotel. Warm and helpful staff. The room is big and also for twin bed size. The breakfast has so many choices. One thing that I love the most is the river view. Near with the shopping mall and point of interest. You may take a picture at the cat statue in front of the hotel.
