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.

I have stayed at the Harbour view many times over the years and have been reasonably happy with the staff and the facilities , but sadly the condition of the hotel has deteriorated to the point where not even it's excellent position in Kuching will have me stay there again . It has become run down dirty and tired ,... More

It's been a year and a half since I stayed in this hotel and this time it wasnt a great experience.

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
