I really enjoyed my stay at the Pullman.
Lots of options for eating, a cocktail bar (don't order anything too fancy - they don't know how to mix them well) and a lovely pool area. My only criticism about that was that I'd wished the pool was open later in the evening for those hot nights.
I found hotels in Borneo to have a consistent standard of cleanliness that by Western standards wouldn't be acceptable (e.g., hair still in the shower, floors not vaccuumed). The Pullman was the *one* exception I found - cleanliness was top notch.
Beds were superbly comfortable and soft sheets, and they give you options for different sorts of pillows.
Keypad safe in the room.
My friend and I were upgraded to a family room and it was massive!
Excellent views from the higher floors looking down on the river and waterfront (depending on which room you get).
The travel agent in the hotel was great - got us what we needed.
Located really close to the waterfront and the Bazaar, but bear in mind it's a downhill walk to get there, and an uphill walk to get back!
Excellent buffet breakfast - lots of options for vegetarians and people from many different cultures.
There's a decent vegetarian Chinese restaurant literally just around the corner (ask reception staff for directions).
There's also a Chinese restaurant on site that has a great variety of vegetarian options - I thought it was a little over priced for the size and quality but worth a try.
Shopping Centre (lietrally) downstairs has ATMs and a lot of American label shops. Overpriced for Kuching, but cheaper than Australian prices.
DOWNSIDE - the wifi is only available in the lobby (as with every other hotel we stayed in in Borneo) but you have to get a new code every 12-24 hours from reception, which is really annoying.
