“Suitable for dwarfs”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

My mum and I stayed here for 3 days 2 nights. When we arrived, we were greeted by a friendly receptionist. You just have to pay a RM5 deposit for the card key. entering the room, I was shocked by the size of the room. It is a cubicle that fits in a small toilet, a twin bed, 2 small side tables with 2 mineral bottles. As a conclusion, I do feel like this place is suitable for dwarfs. Of course I was expecting worse as I heard stories about Tune Hotels where everything is not provided. As a matter of fact, they do deliver what they promised - good bed and shower. However, I felt so much frustrated with no aircond and TV as you need to pay extras to have these add-ons. The room is quite stuffy that the corridor is much cooler than the room. When it is a hot day, the room became unbearably hot even tjough the fan was switched on. If you can book the room during their promotion, go and grab it and get the add-ons. If you are on a tight budget, you can stay here, but please check the price first as you may get better hotels with almost the same price.

Room Tip: Book the rooms very early during their cheapest promotion, and get all the add-ons needed like airco...

I stayed here twice and decide will not return to this hotel location again. The room is dirty & smelly, the sleeping pillow has saliva smell. Lousy house-keeping service didn't replace the empty toilet paper for 2 days and I had to go to reception to ask for the toilet paper.

Room Tip: Use google and find more reviews before you book the hotel room.

My wife and I stayed in July/August 2011 for over 2 weeks. We walked in and got a great deal <£20 per night - inc Air Con! Nice clean double room. Air con was a must - Wifi is chargeable but plenty of local eateries do it free! The hotel is a 200yd walk to the Kuching River front and minutes from many plush or budget eating houses. Great for local buses and the town too... At this price compared to others we tried in Kuching - recommended.

Room Tip: Check Online for great deals!

i was there on july 2011 and we book 4 room through online, 3 room are double and one room is single because we travelling 7 person in our group. neatness, services and facilities are as described for this hotel is a budget hotel but the location is just the opposite. let us note that the location of this hotel is the exact opposite and facing the Sarawak river, but in reality it is facing the old buildings. what is facing the river is totally wrong. but for the other things... just great!!!

The location is just superb, just opposite Hlton Hotel and down the road is the start of the Waterfornt. At the back is Dawn cafe where alot of cheap local food is served. Near the major shopping centers and the "Cat Stature" . At night there is sea-food haven located on top of a carpark called "Top Spot". try the sunset cruise at the waterfront from 5.30pm(only once a day). most of the museums and tourist interest spots are accessible on foot. As this is a budget hotel expect to pay for aircon, the rooms are compact but the bed and toilets are clean. there is free internet access at the lobby, which also has a tour agency(usefull to book tours outside the city area) and cafeteria.
