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.

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

Staff are providing good service, answering queries in a lots of details, providing a lots of guidance such as where to find transport, information of entrance fee,... More

Simple 3 star hotel but satisfactory. Conveniently positioned for shopping, food searching and a walking distance to the water-front for Sarawak river view and cruising adventure. Right infront of the hotel there is shopping mall and nearby are many 4 star hotels. KFC just a stone throw and a Popular Bookstore shop is at the neighbouring building. Room clean and... More

Travelled to Kuching as a group of old classmates for a friend's wedding. Was booked in to Abell Hotel for 2 nights and really appreciate its good location within walking distance to the major attractions of Kuching including the Waterfront, and the very sumptuous seafood center, TopSpot. Rooms were a bit on the small side but reasonably comfortable but well... More

A great option for a comfortable stay in central Kuching.Very handy for a stroll to the river front, shopping, and eating places. I'd have to agree with other reviews, the rooms without a window are claustrophobic. We were moved to one for one night because of our late booking, and I'm glad we were able to return to a windowed... More

We have a good experience staying in Abell Hotel, everything in the hotel is good and everything is well maintain. Walking distance to most of the attraction in Kuching, eg, China Town, Shopping Complex, Kuching waterfront, etc. The Breakfast in Carvery Restaurant is just normal and do not have much variety of food, however, do not miss the ala-carte buffet...
