I just got back from Kuching after a three night stay from the 29th July till today. It was a memorable stay as the hotel was beautifully crafted, especially the lobby, and nice instrumental music to soothe the salvage beast, after a tiring day sight-seeing/shopping, as you head towards your room. The room is tastely decorated, and moderate in size (Superior Single Room). It has all the amenities you need. The Reception desk people are friendly and ever ready to help you. I left my room card in the room, and I can easily get another one from the Reception desk - no questions asked. The buffet breakfast was adequate and the Aurora Cafe was well designed too. The hotel is conveniently located very near to the heart of the city centre - 10 minutes tops walking distance to the Waterfront, Tourist Information Bureau, the souvenir shopping belt (Main Bazaar), and also the town bus terminal. The hotel overlooks Padang Merdeka.
Overall, a great stay at very reasonable rates.
