After a disappointing first night in another hotel, a local recommended Harbor View. What a difference! Harbor View is centrally located and just an easy three-minute walk to the harbor, and about equal distance to China Town. There was a beautiful view of the harbor from the room and, just a few meters below our window we had a bird's... More

I certainly agree with its tagline as this three-star hotel is strategically located in Kuching. Most of the places of interest that one would want to visit in this city are within walking distance from this hotel. It is just beside the oldest Chinese temple in Kuching, the Tua Pek Kong (God of Prosperity) temple. The Main Bazaar where on... More

A reasonably priced hotel. The location is near the waterfront and the Chinese Temple. Room is a bit old but clean.. Food is good and you can walk to the nearby coffee shops. The kolo mee nearby is good.

One of my favourite hotels in Kuching. Keep coming back to this hotel for 3 reasons: reasonable rates, ideal location for shopping and local food and helpful staff. The simple room has coffee making facility, TV and is quite spacious. This time I had problem with the soap dispenser which was continuously dripping. I love the breakfast: quite a good... More

The hotel was a bit old and rundown but for the price, i think its fine. Its currently doing some renovation at the upper level so not sure how would it be in the future. The room are too dim and if you are staying at low level, the sound might be a bit irritating. Got the room facing the... More

This was not our usual style hotel but we wanted a bit of comfort and for a very reasonable price we had a very comfortable stay and a great view. Very good location right in the city centre. Take note that the price doesn't include breakfast though.

Good location, breakfast was good with good choice and affordable. Hotel public areas and rooms were clean and well maintain. The bath room need upgrading. The light in the rooms needs more. Hard to read in the room. The staff at the reception counter is attentive but does not look friendly but they are helpful. The Security guard is helpful... More

Room: Room is simple and all right. There is however a damp, musty smell that old rooms tend to have. Suggest that the Hotel Management put in some freshener or something. Room is also poorly lit at night as there's not enough lighting point in the room. If you need better lighting, you may need to go sit in the... More
