We booked four rooms all without windows. Room was small but clean. The only complaint is the bathroom. The first night our bathroom was full of water when we had our shower,we had to call reception to mop up. Subsequently we had to be very careful,positioning the shower head towards the wall in order for the water not to splashed... More

Abell Hotel is located just 3 minutes walk to the Kuching Waterfront. Many restaurants and cafes in the surrounding area and Maybank right opposite the hotel. Kuching landmark, the roundabout with statues of cats, is less than a minute walk. Our room cost us RM100/night, spacious and clean. Perfect stay when you in Kuching.

Abell is a lovely, reasonably priced hotel in a great location. It's within easy walking distance of Chinatown, the riverside and the city center. Rooms are very clean with comfortable beds and great showers. The staff were really helpful and friendly during our stay; helping us organise trips and advising us on where to go etc. We didn't have breakfast... More

This hotel is just in the city center of Kuching. Chinatown is just 2min walking distance, water promenade can be reached by 10min walking. Room was quite small. The carpet hat a lot of stains and the room was a bit dusty. Could all be cleaner. Wifi available and working good. We booked 2 tours through the hotel and had... More

Staff are friendly and helpful. Very good location. Just round the back, you may walk to all the yummy eateries. No problem if you are looking for local breakfast in the morning. Standard rooms are relatively small, simple but clean.

Location is really good. Most places are just walking distance. We took 2 rooms for the weekend stay, managed to get rooms side by side. Size wise is also great. Bed & Pillows are veryyyyy comfy. Although wifi connections are a bit problematic. Water pressure is alright. Cleanliness of the room is also good. If you intend to have some... More

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
