We stayed in Kuching 4 nights and were very comfortable here. The staff welcomed us with tuak and kek lapis, so we checked those "to try" items off the list right away. We arrived pretty early in the AM, and our room was ready. The room faced the street and had great light if a bit noisy. Compared to other... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Batik. The service was EXCELLENT! Raj and his team went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. We booked all of our activities through the hotel, and found it to be good value, which is rare to find anywhere. Good location, close to the river. Room was clean... More

This has become one of my favorite boutique hotels in the world. From the warm and engaging owner and manager, to the helpful staff with great recommendations, good breakfast, excellent location close to the waterfront, and beautiful, airy and bright rooms, my stay here was really pleasant. The only thing is that the supposed complimentary service from and to the... More

I have been traveling for many years and in many countries. The Batik Boutique is now my favorite hotel anywhere. The Batik may not be for everyone. If you want a predictable, standard, sterile but luxurious environment then you might be better off choosing one of Kuching’s 5 star hotels. Everything isn’t always perfect at the Batik. Sometimes you have... More

It's true, we really had a great stay at the Batik Boutique hotel. Starting from our arrival until we left everything just went right and nothing was too much touble. Staying at Chinese New Year the hotel organised a lion dance and had special 'treats' for us in the room. We enjoyed meeting and chatting with the totally professional team... More

My wife and I stayed here this past Valentine's day and had a wonderful time. The room was spacious and bright, the bathroom was amazing, the bed was huge and comfortable too. The staff were very helpful and friendly, they offer free airport transfer and helped us with printing out our boarding passes (which a lot of hotels won't do)... More

We booked into this unit based on its trip advisor rating. The hotel was very tiny say two storey high. It didn't have reception. They took our passport "somewhere” disappeared for few minutes then handed back to us. The whole place was dirty and had that musty foul smell throughout. Stayed the night and forfeited the rest of our four... More

Good location, large clean, well air conditioned room, good choice of breakfast, but best of all such charming and helpful staff. The Batik felt homely and welcoming from the start and I write as a jaded veteran of many a corporate hotel. Jo-Linn was delightful and patiently gave us detailed suggested itineraries and made our four day stay in Borneo... More

This was my 4th visit to this superb little boutique hotel. It is based on a traditional chinese 3-storey shop lot, and has been very tastefully modernised to retain the original feeling of airy spaciousness. The bedrooms are excellent in every respect, and the bathrooms amongst the best I've experienced locally. It is probably fair to say, however, that the... More

Batik Boutique Hotel is conveniently located in Kuching, being a few minutes walk to the river and the commercial area. The room we stayed in on the 3rd floor overlooked the main street, and even then, it was very quiet, which meant we slept very well. The appointment of the room represented great value, with AC, LCD TV, wifi and... More
