We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights from Dec. 16 and loved this hotel! The rooms are decent sized, very comfortable mattress and quiet (if you are situated in the interior of the hotel). We stayed in Room 113. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and we booked a sightseeing tour to the Orangutang Centre through them as... More

A nice place to stay for business or vacation. Near to the waterfront area of Kuching, so we can walk along riverside everytime. The room is clean and the facilities are just perfect. The staffs are very friendly and ready to help. Many tourism attractions are nearby. At the night, the location of the hotel is full of tourist activities.... More

I was really pleased with the whole experience. The sweetest of staffs, always more than willing to help, a great location, suberbly tidy rooms, functioning wifi in the room. Would definitely come again! Didn't try the restaurant, but it seemed to be of quality.

What more can I add then has already been said? Within walking distance to most major attractions of Kuching, very friendly staff, clean although very small room. This is indeed not a hotel you pick for a romantic getaway, but if you're out exploring the city but want a good bed close to everything with a very very helpfull staff,... More

This hotel is situated within a 5 minute walk to the waterfront, 3 minute walk to the famous cat statue, 2 minute walk to Jalan Padungan with its Chinese shophouses, bars and restaurants. It's far from Chinatown and Little India if they are the places you want to hang out most at, otherwise it's very central. The rooms are clean,... More

The staff are great, the room was tiny with a closet bathroom/toilet, clean and modern though. It was good for one night. Breakfast was extra, so I ventured round the corner to Maharajas, a tiny cafe, for roti chanai, excellent choice. Good espresso at the hotel. Not a lot of style and some rooms look good, mine was ok. You... More

Excellent hotel, clean and handy for the center of Kuching and it's range of affordable restaurants. We arrived on our first day and ate a meal off the menu which was one of the tastiest of my 10 hotel tour of Borneo. The breakfast was buffet style and on other occasions was menu, we suspect it depended on the number... More
