Our family of 2 adults and 3 teens were in Kuching in June for a short break. Travelling as a family, we always like to stay in vacation rentals or service apartments so we can share common space watching tv, chatting and snacking together. The Citadines offers service apartments and is new, clean and modern though the space is rahter compact. Nonetheless, everything a traveller needs is found in the apartment and anything else needed can be bought in the mid- sized supermart on the ground floor. Breakfast in very simple and we gave it a miss after the first day. Cafes offering much better variety are just round the corner and all food is so cheap and affordable in Kuching.
There is a brand new shopping mall just across the street. Loads of shops and food.
I would say the only downside is that it is a good 10-15min cab ride to go downtown. In Kuching, cabs have to be booked by phone and one cannot just hail a cab from the roadside. But this applies to anywhere you go in Kuching, not specific to staying in this spot. In any case, if you book excursions, the companies are happy to come pick you at no extra charge. We booked a day trip and spent a fabulous day kayaking down an 11km stretch of the Sarawak River. All in, it was a pleasant stay.
