“Hotel with a nice pillow”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

I was really impressed with Pullman Hotel for offering pillows to suit each individual needs. I always have a problem with pillow when I travel. I can't sleep on pillow that is too soft, it gives me headache and dizziness. At Pullman Hotel, I slept like a baby. The air con is super cool which is nice relief with the sizzling heat of the tropical weather outside the hotel. The room is of big size and clean. I won't hesitate to recommend it to my friends and family.

Room Tip: There are many eateries close to the hotel. There are a couple of small shopping centres next to th...

New hotel near the old-er Hilton, we stayed in the 22nd floor (club) nice view of the whole city. Room is spacious (executive), bathroom spacious, nice wardrobe area. Lighting is a bit dissapointing, no blockout curtains (very important for business travellers with jet lags).

Breakfast was crowded, but large selections.

Housekeeping was hopeless, we asked for fresh towels - 6 phone calls later, one of their staff showed up "how may I help you ma'am?"

Room service was ok, food was good, ordered club sandwhich - did not dissapoint.

Pool was closed due to a private function -- not happy with this.

Overall, if you get a good rate, stay here.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more, stay in executive room - worth it.

I stayed two nights in the Pullman Kuching in early July 2011. Had a fantastic stay there and would definitely go back in the future. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Bed was big and soft enabling a good night sleep and getting up fresh the next day. Though near the main road it is quite quiet. The lobby was grand and very inviting indeed, perhaps it's still new. You can walk to the town centre nearby (10-15 min) and enjoy your shopping at the bazaar and stalls down the road. A popular noodle stall can be found tucked away in this row of shops selling anything from local handicrafts to tidbits, fabrics, shawls, etc. Look for the colorful hand bags, purses and hats weaved from mengkuang. They make excellent souvenirs for friends and colleagues.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher level. More airy and cooling.

We stayed at this hotel during our company trip for YA2011. We are happy about this hotel as it is well maintained and it is still pretty new. And the security is impressed as you only can access to your own room floor and the public area. This complimented by a big lobby hall where you can relax and view the whole hall without hidden partition or cornering.

This Hotel is strategically located at center of Kuching town. Just walking distance to waterfront and carpenter street (a shop streets where you can find the local delights "Kolo mee" and "laksa" here, and of course shopping). At night, there is nothing much you can do at Kuching, so you can still do shopping as this hotel is connected with a shopping mall, and outside the shopping mall are the cafe and pubs. To name a few of restaurants outside the shopping mall are Station one (local franchise of restaurant with live bands ), delifrance (bread and coffee), full house (mainly popular of its western food with a lovely korean interior deco), Old Town (Malaysia style coffee franchise shop).

Just one little unhappy thing happen is that the hotel request us to pay RM10.00 for each laundry bag we took home. It was not written chargeable though when take the bag and never have other hotels charge on this item i mean it is very rare here. Luckily our tour leader from Boustead reflects our disappointment and they refund the money to us.

Stayed at the Pullman for 2 nights. The hotel is brand new, situated on top of a mall (still half empty apparently) and basically in the center of Kuching.
Big lobby with free wifi internet. It's annoying because the access codes are only valid for 1 or 2 hours so you keep asking for a new one... Weird concept. No Wifi in the rooms though, only wired access... for a fee.
Check-in was smooth, helpful staff. The room was surprisingly nice, airy and huge! I might have had an upgrade... the bathroom was very big too. There is a safe of course and also a bathrobe, an exercise mat and two small dumbells, if you ever felt like doing some exercises in your room.
The spa/sauna area was nice too, brand new and super clean. Pool area is also very enjoyable with good pool side service.
I used their travel agent, which is situated in the lobby. Went to a reserve to look at orang utans. A few hours trip that you can squeeze in the morning for example.
The breakfast buffet was ok, nothing extraordinary. Dinner in the same restaurant was good too.
I'd stay there again if I come back to Kuching.
