“Great option for a more homely feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for a week and the staff was impressively helpful and thoughtful. I got sick and had to go to the hospital, and the staff was on top of how I was doing, and checked up on my days after, including making nice exceptions for food, etc, with no charge. The manager seemed on top of everything and aware of what all guests were doing, and they provided really good information on local attractions.

The location is quite convenient and the terrace is nice for hanging out.

We went to the exec suite [about 85sgd w/breakfast + tax], and it was very, very spacious and comfortable.

Their wi fi in the rooms is really slow at times but works ok in the lobby, and the food is just OK, but it is totally worth it.

Room Tip: I would recommend going for the exec level; it is affordable and worth the difference. Also, if you...

My family and I stayed at this lovely hotel in November 2012. The hotel is simple and clean with a cute rooftop bar. We really appreciate the great location of the hotel as we were able to get to majority of the places by foot.

The service of the local staff was excellent. They were friendly, cheerful and professional. They assisted to all our enquires with a smile, provided helpful information about kuching and they made us feel most at home.

We would definitely return to stay here should we visit kuching again.

I said here on two separate occassions whilst in Kuching. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is a 10 minute easy but warm walk from the water front bazaar and eateries. Staff were pleasant and service was great. I would definately stay here again. WiFi was a great bonus.
