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

Abell is a small 3star hotel located at a very strategic place. Walking distance to the riverside, seafood restaurant, and next to Jalan Padungan where most of the local food can be found. 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...

One of the best option to stay in a budget travel n kuching. Had stayed in an old lodge before but not worth the money and the time. If looking for a place to stay near waterfront, this hotel would be a good option. Small room but worth the money. Dont stay in an ancient lodging along the waterfront. Its... More

We spent seven nights at this hotel. It was our home for a week and a delight to come home to after each day's exploring. We had a superior window street view room on the 3rd floor. I assume cheaper rooms would have alley views or windows looking into an internal garden. Having a street view only advantage was to... More

stayed 3 nights. ironically the family rooms with a queen and a single bed was the smallest room they had. tiny little window which gives the room a basement feeling. the tiny window without a view just doesnt make sense as the room is in the 2nd floor not the basement!!! no idea why s.o. would design a room window...
