The Hilton Kuching is the best located of the cluster of modern international hotels in Kuching and there was very little (if anything) with which to find fault. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable, the breakfast buffet had a wide choice, the service was good and there was free internet in the lobby. We enjoyed our stay and we think that the Hilton may well be the pick of the bunch in Kuching.

One small piece of advice: if you plan to visit the Semmengoh Orang-Utan sanctuary while here, do not book through the travel agent in the lobby. There is a shuttle bus (RM35 per person) which goes around all the hotels for half the price of the private tour being sold by the agent. We only found out about this by calling in at the Riverside Majestic hotel – the Hilton agent had conveniently failed to mention it. There is absolutely no point in taking a private tour as everyone is in one big group once you get there.

I arrived here on honeymoon, very excited about seeing Kuching for the first time, from Pang Kor Laut in Malaya which was excellent. My wife almost started crying when we were shown to our room. The walls were damp, the wallpaper peeling off, the bed was tiny, the television rubbish, the kind of room you stay in because you have to. It was clean and had a nice view of the river, but that was about it.

Luckily, very luckily, The Pullman hotel is about 100 yards away and by chance my wife had seen it on this site (a travel agent booked us into the Hilton, they did our entire trip and the Hilton was the only mistake they made). We walked up to the Pullman, found a room and checked straight out of the Hilton to go there, at 10.30pm on a Sunday night. The experiences are totally different, and the price difference very little, as we found out from the Hilton refunding our second, but not our first night with them. Something like $15. For that you go to a wonderful room, incredible bed, huge widescreen tv with movie channels and a delicious breakfast. It was so nice we ordered (expensive but very good) room service both nights we stayed there.

The pool at the Pullman is also one of the nicest we swam in all honeymoon. Please do yourself a favour and avoid the Hilton at least until they have completely refurbished it.

We were booked into the Hilton for two nights as a base to view local attractions prior to a week on the Ranjang River from Sibu.

The reception and welcome was good and the concierge staff were very good, both on arrival and departure. We were allocated a room with an excellent view over the Sarawak river. One comment on the room was that the bathroom looked a little dated and would benefit from some updating.

The buffet breakfast was of a high standard with a very wide range of choices. We ate in one of the reastaurants (Chinese) on one of the nights. The staff were very friendly, and the food was good, although we felt it to be a little expensive.

The hotel is ideally located for walking around Kuching and has direct access to walk along the side of the large river. There is also a nearby ferry to cross to the other side.

In general, the hotel represents a typical city example of the Hilton chain.

We used the Hilton as our base in Sarawak.

It's in a good spot in Kuching which is nice city with lots of very cheap but good bars and restaurants nearby.

The fabric and design of the hotel is fine and the service is pretty good.

Not worth the money. Our rooms had an awful smell and were really old. The friends we were staying with had to ask for another room because their room smelt so bad. Breakfast had the fewest options we've seen in a long time, and didn't open on time. Service was very plain indeed. Not worth the money. We stayed in another hotel in Kuching a week later and it was much better.

I stayed in Hilton for 1 night only and nothing much I can say..
the service was just fine, not outstanding and not disappointed, I only wanted to complain about the room which is already old and had some spot or dirty marks on the wall, it was really not nice to see..I hope that it would be concerned by the hotel.
