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

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
