Reviewed August 15, 2009

Truly excellent, comfortable 2-bedroom apartments. Well-furnished, modern rooms with city views. Big enough to swing a crocodile in. We loved this place!

The first reviewer failed to look around and therefore missed the best point of this place. Sure, there is no room service or flashy restaurant. But the hotel is attached to an entire shopping centre. You don't even need to leave the hotel building to eat. There is a walkway across to the main shopping area in Hock Lee Centre. Firstly, there is a Chinese Malay restaurant called "The Jolly Kitchen". It has tasty, cheap food in a relaxed atmosphere. Or walk a few more steps to a swanky Chinese restaurant. Then head downstairs to a supermarket and load up on beer and soft drink. Great convenience! Just not promoted by the hotel itself. There are also other restaurants nearby.

Horizon Restaurant is on the tenth floor of the 360 Hotel. It serves a buffet breakfast. This includes cereals, juices, toast, and noodles. Plus a few cooked items (changed daily) like sausages or rice. All filling and included in the tariff. Admiring the riverside views are a great way to start the day. Grab a newspaper and relax. You can see all the way to Mount Santubong!

Back to the rooms... Cable internet points in two rooms (free). Free satellite TV channels on a new set. And a properly equipped kitchen that would be handy if you stayed for a few days. Everyday needs like tea and coffee are well met. There is plenty of fridge space for ice, beer, cold drinks and Sarawak layer cakes. Everything works.

Washing machines and dryer are provided free in a laundry room. They even supply washing powder free. Yes! No need to pay for an expensive laundry service.

All these little extras are nice to find. And the room prices are great, anyway.

The hotel is located away from the hustle-and-bustle of the city centre. You can hop in a cab for 10-12 RM and head for the waterfront. Front desk staff were always helpful arranging transport (including shuttle buses). Hard to fault. They were also patient and understanding with our children.

This place is a winner for anyone who likes a bit of living space. Definitely best to book directly via the hotel's website.

Reviewed August 6, 2009

The hotel has been open about one year and I'm surprised nobody has reviewed it yet. I stayed two nights (3-4 Aug) and paid only RM 155 (USD 45) per night, including tax, service and breakfast, through the hotel's own website. I was upgraded to one of the apartment units (see photos) which makes me think that some floors were originally built for residential accommodation (it looks like my suite had a maid's room and small yard area included). It is hard to fault the hotel at this price, indeed everything was clean, working and the staff were helpful enough (but, it has to be said, not overly friendly). I do think, however, that the hotel over-sells itself, advertising that it is "5-star at budget prices" (or something like that). No way is it 5-star, but it does offer facilities of a good 3-star hotel in many parts of the world - including a good-size pool and gym. What was disappointing was the lack of any bar or dining outlets. There is a room on the 18th floor where a buffet breakfast is served, and it has free wifi access (also in ground floor lobby), and the room is open until 8pm for guests' use. But there is no meal or drinks service at all - just a water cooler, and some tea and coffee sachets if you want a hot drink (these are not provided in the rooms). As far as I could see there was no way to get any form of drink (soft or alcoholic) and no food/room service at all. This is important because unlike many of the big hotels in Kuching, the 360 is NOT in the waterfront centre where most of the action - and shops/restaurants - are. Sure, it's only a flat-rate RM 10 taxi to get to the waterfront, but if you're looking for a meal or a drink in or within walking distance of the hotel, you may be disappointed. That said, one reason I chose the hotel was because the reviews here for the other major Kuching hotels are generally pretty grim reading - tired old rooms and bad food - and 360 Hotel certainly scores highly in terms of the rooms being modern and quite clean. It's a RM22 taxi ride to the airport. I recommend taking the Damai Beach Resort's shuttle bus (RM 10 each way) on the 45 minute drive to Damai Beach - can rent a towel there for just RM 10 and use the resort's pool and beach, grab a meal (yes, they do serve food and drink!) and then be dropped off back at 360 by the same shuttle bus.
