Pros: location near to Kuching Waterfront, room is spacious and clean, very good staff Cons: breakfast has not so many choices but the food is good, I don't really like the bathroom design, air conditioning somehow has not satisfy me because it is not cool even the temperature shows at 20°C. Room: Superior Twin, 12th floor

This is a rather average hotel in Kuching. Reception was fine, the rooms clean with a good bathroom. The bar is rather boring and it takes a while to find the staff. Breakfast was good. There are plenty of dining places around and plenty of shops. The waterfront is close by. The hotel may not be up to much but... More

Good location: near the waterfront, there is a temple in front of the hotel, near the oldest streets of Kuching. Room is alright, bathroom could do with some upgrading, for example a new shower curtain. Breakfast is alright, not much catering for western tourists, but that is understandable as there are not many western tourists at the hotel.

This hotel is located very near to the Waterfront with a great view of the river (if you take higher floor on the Waterfront side). You will enjoy the morning, afternoon and evening view of the river from your hotel room. You can walk to the Waterfront food area, Hills Shopping Mall and Riverside Complex. If you walk through the... More

Stayed at this hotel for 1 night at the end of May 2014. Room size is quite ok but bed lousy. It is soft and tends to roll into the center whenever you sleep. Toilet needs some upgrading. Location of hotel is ok but the shops around there closes quite early. There is a seafood area on the 6th floor... More

We stayed here by Dec 2011 for 4 nites. The hotel is new and clean. No swimming pool. The location is good. The shopping mall Parkson is within walking distance. The hotel is close to jetty. The famous temple is just beside the hotel. The price is moderate. We were very happy stayed here.

For the price of RM150 it is worth the stay. Located strategically (walking distance) to the waterfront. Booking and check-in process was fast and professional. The only flaw is that the hotel need major refurbishment throughout especially the rooms.

It has become run down dirty and tired ,... More
