Don't stay anywhere else! No..seriously... You will miss out! The other hotels in Kuching seem really big, and even though they look out onto the river, I don't think there's much else to them, just a lot of rooms and a lot of people really. The Abell is small, and central, the bus to Bako goes from right outside, the... More

The interior room (no outside facing window) had a fridge, kettle and there was a fast internet connection. The staff at the desk was friendly and informative. They helped us with excursion information and local bus schedules. The hotel is conveniently located close to the riverfront in the China-town side of the city. There was a local cafeteria style vegetarian... More

The location of this hotel is strategic, walking distance to the malls, and waterfront. Safe and Free parking at basement. Room is clean. Couldn't be happier for the deal I get! My room has no window, I guess you can request for the room with window.

Good service, need to put up with rather small and cramped toilet and washroom. Water from shower somehow didnt flow out fast enough, leaving a floor like situation. It is breakfast -- well at RM35, not worth the money, with very limited choices, taste so so. One thing i find odd. I was in the room, the housekeeping knocked on... More

As always Kuching is a great place to visit. Stayed at Abell last visit and again this visit. Staff very welcoming and helpful, location close to shopping food and bank. Free wifi so we could call home.

I stayed in this hotel for my recent foodie trip with 2 of my friends and we booked a family room (1 queen bed and 1 single bed). The room itself was clean and tidy although it was a bit small, so families with small children may find it a bit cramped. The bathroom however, was huge and the shower... More
