Very helpful, friendly staff here. The room was clean and spacious enough for 3 of us. Lots of brochures and reading material in the room if you're stuck for things to do. Also quite convenient location; close to the markets, restaurants etc.

Stayed here for 3 nights. I chose this place based on location of the hotel as it is near to almost everything in Kuching Centre. Short walk to the waterfront and surrounded by plenty of places to eat. The hotel staff are very friendly. We arrived early in the morning so our room was not ready. Hence we had our... More

We stayed here on 3 occasions during our 2 weeks in Kuching. Staff were welcoming, helpful and genuinely friendly. Rooms aren't huge but they're more than enough. Shower works great and you get your own router in your room so wifi is brilliant. A lot of people are complaining about the air conditioning. On our second stay the air con... More

Abell Hotel is well situated in the centre of Kuching. I arrived quite late after a longer than expected journey from Bali. The standard room I was given was fine but there was an incredibly strong smell of curry both inside and in the corridor around. I wouldn't normally complain about something like that but it really was so strong... More

Abell Hotel is just a nice hotel to stay and nearby to Kuching Waterfront and also surrounding many cafes for you to find a local food. For me is worth for paying RM100 for the room and fully recommended.

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
