the decor and the state of the room is clearly out of date. the cleanliness also wasnt so satisfactory to me. i dine in their Italian restaurant the night i stayed. although the service was excellent, the food was terrible. the breakfast buffet is just okay. the location is ok, with plaza merdeka is within walking distant.

The location is decent. It just a walking distance to waterfront, shopping mall, park and museum. The hotel still maintain their colonial & classic décor in the building. A friend of mine who join the trip complaint about the lift. There was a smell that is too strong inside it. My room is superior room facing the car park. What... More

This hotel has a perfect location and the lobby and restaurant areas are beautiful. Staff are friendly and helpful. Sadly, though, the rooms are very disappointing. While they must have been lovely in their day, they are now very tired and in our room, the ceiling was damp to the point that parts of it were to be found on... More

Hotel itself had enjoyed their pride long time ago with colonial & classical style architectural building & decor. The problem is that they never renovate or... More

The bathroom was fairly acceptable with only cotton bud, shower cap n sanitary bag but no toothbrush. I rush to get out as soon as I... More

I have no idea of other hotels in Kuching, and I came here alone for some meetings. I was recommended this place, but.... wow, welcome back to 1984. The staff is actually good, they really try and they are nice people to speak with, actually up to there the hotel would have been good. Breakfast is not that bad either,... More

We had a table very close to the food. There were plenty of choices. The turkey was excellent. This is the 2nd time that I booked for Christmas Eve & the quality of food were kept to top quality. Did not try any of the pasta corner as we don't know what was offered. Remarkable staff. Though super busy, they... More
