I spent 4 nights at the Harbour View (or HV as it is known locally). It is located 1 street back from the Sarawak River, and right near the ''main bazaar'' with its antique / handicraft shops and eateries. The Kuching Waterfront strip is also located right across the street - a lot of eateries here as well. I had...

Our travel agency booked a standard room for us which was incredible small, therefore we paid a very small supplement on the spot for a deluxe room which was much better. As we stayed 1 night at a longhouse we checked in twice at this hotel and got 2 different rooms. In both rooms we had cockroaches and ants (at...

I keep coming back to this hotel,even though I find the staff somewhat bland. My room had recently been refurbished with high quality TV,nice bed,very comfortable,great aircon. The restaurant is a bit pricey for average food. With a non-smoking room the you avoid carpet burns,etc. The location opposite the river is unbeatable and shops and restaurants are close.

We had spent 3 nights at the Riverside Majestic and were going to Bako for a night then wanted a room for one night at the end of our trip. The Majestic were going to charge us double the rate we had paid for the 3 nights so we went looking for another place. We walked into the Harbour view...

A very clean hotel with helpful and friendly staff. The restaurant, though not haute cuisine serves some good, value for money dishes with large portions. The Laksa Sarawak is not the best I have tasted but was still very good. Good location for all the major attratcions of Kuchong.

Value for money. Just opposite the famous Kuching Waterfront. Just cross roads the oldest temple in the city, Chinese History Museum and James Brooke Cafe... For what I paid, I got it. Breakfast was good, they have western and local choice but just okay... Staff- I think this is the reason I'll come back here again... i like their hospitality..

There are so many cockroaches in the room! How to stay Most of the facilities in the room are not in good condition! Toilet - no pipe/hose or bidet. Very unhygienic! Pay RM 165 for what! Worse than low class hotel! Regret to stay here!

We stayed at Harbour view for 4 nights over New Year and it was an excellent base for (re)visiting Kuching. The room was quiet, large, clean, comfortable and had a great view across the river. We did not have meals there but there is no shortage of restaurants in Kuching. Sure, the wifi (labelled "lobby") only worked in the lobby,...
