A handy note... As it's quite a big hotel, there is almost always a taxi waiting outside. If not, there's a taxi stand just across the road. Also, as it's quite a big hotel all the taxi drivers know where it is. So if you're ever lost, it's only a few Ringgit to get home! The hotel... Not a bad... More

Hotel with very strategic location, just right in heart of the city. Easy access to Sarawak Plaza, Tun Jugah, China Town, Cat Statue, Waterfront, Bank (Maybank, CIMB, Standard Chartered....).

The staircase railing is an accident waiting to happen. The handrail posts are spaced too far apart and can allow small children to past through. I wouldn't recommend bringing your family unless you take good care of your kids, that is carry them always or hold their hands at all times.

This hotel used to be known as 'holiday inn' Kuching. Location is just right in the heart of Kuching. However like most cities, the heart is actually dying and most of the newer developments ie malls, cinemas etc are away from the city center.

Amazing selection of food for breakfast. Rooms facing the river have a beautiful view. Downside, house keeping not up to par. Rooms short of face towels and incomplete bathroom amenities.
