1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Not my choice but since it is close to where our family was staying during a wedding weekend, it was convenient so we stayed for one night. Definitely not up to my expectations, as the photos on the website looks OK. We were checked-in to a smoking room, on a smoking floor. The room still smelled terrible although the staff gave air freshener (gel type). Apparently there wasn't any available non-smoking room that weekend, which I found odd because I didn't see that many guests staying over. Room's lighting and bathroom lighting are dim. Bathroom smells bad too. Breakfast was terrible - very oily sausages and kuay tiaw, not properly cooked half-boiled eggs. I think the management of the hotel should look into maintaining the hotel better.

Is near to bus stops and hawkers stalls. Breakfast ok but more to Asian style.
It was raining the time when we stayed, walking in and out the hotels is very dirty cause the road in front of the hotel is a little flooded and narrow. At night is very quiet and dark, but so far I feel that safety is fine in Kuching. Wifi provided but slow. Staffs are friendly and helpful.

Stayed there for a couple of times. All in all, the service is great, the room is quite small but clean. Excellent for budget travelers. Food stalls, Malay cafes/restaurants, and a mosque are just a walking distance from the hotel.

The room was clean but i found the front desk wasn't helpful and informative. I had to find out about a lot of things on my own, for eg bus terminal to bako and semenggoh. They couldn't even suggest the best place to eat around the hotel area - pretty disappointing. The hotel is situated at the other side of Kuching city, surrounded by historical monuments and building. if you want to see the other side of Kuching during Brooke Era, this hotel probably one of the affordable ones and close by to those historical buildings. The food they served during breakfast was slightly below average.

Stayed here for the 2D1N from 8-9 June 2012 for a leisure travel to kch. I have stayed in many hotels before around kuching and I found this hotel in the near kuching town. Clean hotel, near to India Street and several shopping arcade. Easy to find the nearest food stall and malay cafe around. Check-in was fast and given the room that I had booked. Simple decorations and amenities. Breakfast could be better. Staff hospitality was ok. This hotel a bit quiet but I strongly recommend this hotel to others. For malay travellers this hotel could be their good choice as the mosque nearby. Love he evening scenery along sarawak river. For budget travellers, this hotel offers you the choice that you looked for. I would stay in this hotel again...

The single room is small just fit a bed. However, noise from next door can be irritating when the next door occupant took shower.

Breakfast is average and could improve with local favorites like Laksa Sarawak, Mee Kolok and Mee Jawa served daily.

Location is within walking distance of the riverside. Its room is clean and there is free wifi.

Room Tip: Dont pick single room as it could be too small and noisy.

Our room was small but clean with a great view of the river. Near the mosque and halal food stalls. A ten minute walk to Satok Market and very close to the city bus interchange. All the staff were very polite and helpful especially En. Mohamed. For around RM100, we got a nice clean room, cable TV, free WIFI, basic breakfast and good service. You also get to see a little more of local life compared to staying on the city centre.
