It's been a year and a half since I stayed in this hotel and this time it wasnt a great experience. Its in a really good location right in the middle of the city, close to bars and the shopping mall but there were several things about the room that were not so nice and gave the impression of a...

We started our tour of Borneo in Kuching, and stayed a total of 4 nights at the Harbour View hotel. Overall the hotel has a good value for money. That doesn't mean all is perfect, but if you can live with those few negative points, you'll have a good time at the Harbour View hotel in Kuching. During our stay... More

This was the final stop after two weeks of travelling through Sabah and Sarawak - and what a treat! Hotel is spotlessly clean and staff are extremely helpful. The rooms are spacious and on both visits I had harbour views. Imagine my delight when, on the second last night, they closed Chinese New Year with a fabulous display of fireworks.... More

This hotel is showing it's age, but kind of well-kept in general. Stayed in a deluxe room and found it to be spacious, and had the bonus of getting the river view. I thought the room was okay, but the ensuite bathroom could have used some sprucing up. The shower fittings were looking terribly worn, and the bath tub flooded... More

I don't like staying in smoking rooms, but when you're traveling in this region it can be hard to find the perfect clean-air room. The non smoking room I was given smelled awful. Changed to another room (ironically on the smoking floor) and it was much better. I have stayed at the hotel two times, and had a deluxe room... More

The minute you enter the hotel, you have a sense of deja vu as you have been transported back to the earlier 80's. Typical of the settings and furnishing, one can sense that nothing much was done to modernize this place. By the time, I enter the lift and came out to the floor where I stayed, the layout is...

I have to admit, I was a little freaked out with all the reviews about cockroaches in the rooms. Even had a couple of other ladies on our tour freaked out as well. Thankfully, didn't see any creepy crawly anything. We were on a higher floor so maybe that was the reason? We had a decent view of the riverfront.... More
