I love this hotel because of its location, design and the concept. The rooms are really beautiful and nice shower, bath tub they have. If only their services can be improved.

Dear Ezeither Greetings from the Ranee! It is our normal practice to assist guests with their luggage. Please accept our sincere apologies for what happened on your arrival. We are built along a row of old shophouses and therefore the lift cannot be built to the ground level. There is a short flight of stairs before reaching the lift lobby.... More

We booked 2 rooms and stayed 5 nights as a family. Positive; friendly and helpful staff, perfect location on the waterfront, nice shower and comfortable beds. Points for attention: our room (and also bathroom) (standard room) had no window or daylight coming in and was rather small. It is very weird and makes room dark. The other room we booked... More

There hotel is perfectly located on the waterfront, and the room was definitely very good. There is however a general lack of management that you can feel and kind of expect in a "boutique" hotel. It is nothing critical, but the sum of these little incidents became conspicuous after a couple of days. Concierge is empty most of the afternoons.... More

Guests please be very careful about this hotel. We stayed here in July 2016 and the hotel asked for a MYR300 as deposit using our credit card.

This hotel was recommended to us for our stay in Kuching and it was a great choice. On the waterfront, close to main attractions, shops, bazaar, restaurants, bars and cafes we really enjoyed our stay. Good cafe/bar, tour desk and adjoining shop. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
