“Staying in Sibu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Stayed for one night in this decent hotel. Spacious room, closet, bathroom. TV not LCD but ample choice of channels. There is an overhead bridge connecting the hotel to the mall so you can get whatever you need to get or simply shopping. I called for food room service, fast n polite staff. Food is alright n price is ok for a hotel. .
Satisfying.
This hotel need interior refurbishment soon, not because the rooms aren't comfy enough, but the carpet are getting dull n its time to get a flat screen tv. And being probably n suppose to be the best hotel in Sibu I think the hotel should have as basics to all rooms - bedroom slippers, complimentary food platter, more than just two pieces of towels, do throw in some small towels n hanky size ones. . .
The hotel is supposed to have a fitness centre as it says on the lift directory, but it does not, other than the pool.

The room size are pretty decent. We were given a corner adjoining room. Free wireless internet service but limited to two devices per room. Remember to ask for a code to access the internet service when you check in as they do not give it to you automatically (at least that was my experience). We did manage to get 3 codes for our room though.

The buffet breakfast is average. People from the West may find it weird that Asians eat pasta, rice, curry and etc for breakfast.

The hotel does not have a gym but it has a decent size pool. During our five days' stay at the hotel, we went to the pool three times and each time their towels were out. The hotel has a basement garage and you and your visitors can park for free. You may have difficulties in parking when there is a function in the hotel complex.

Room Tip: A corner room will be bigger. Ask for a room at higher floors to avoid noises as the hotel is situa...

Most visitors come from outstation would select this hotel. At town centre, by walk. Can go to supermarket like parkson city, town square, riverside & etc. If by car, easy to find places parking & more convenience. Good customers services.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large. Double bed.

Been staying here on and off for many years. Seen it's at the highest glory and seems like until today, it is still one of the favorite hotel in the small town of Sibu.

Room and bathroom is big, but due to the traffic of the guests here, the rooms things are getting a bit worn out. Lumpy pillows, old towels and a couch that smells of too many people using it. The door bell is not working too well as well and it gives of a toy gun kinda sound!

One things which really needs to be done is to have their windows clean. It is really a very nice view, but it has not been clean for a long time and the nice view is block.

However, the good side of it, the service and the food is good.

We were staying there for business and staying in this hotel was almost like going back I time. Certainly don't expect an executive lounge here! However, the room was clean, if a little dated, there was plenty of space, and had plenty of electrical sockets. The service was better than most international chain hotels that I have stayed in. In my experience it takes a good 30 minutes for staff to comply with any request phoned through, but at RH, they were really quick, about 10 - 15 minutes. Excellent! We thought the room service food was great too. We both had beef in ginger sauce with rice and it was tasty and piping hot!

This is a good hotel to stay in Sibu as it is new and nicely designed.
There are shops around for food and simple shopping (do not expect much in Sibu).

We stayed in the RH Hotel in Sibu for 3 nights and were so grateful for all the help they gave us. The taxi drivers they called were very perfect for what we wanted to do and that was a trip down memory lane from the 1960's and to find the places we lived in. Lovely pool and very good service, would certainly recommend.
