Ariva Gateway Kuching
Ranked #27 of 55 Hotels in Kuching
Reviewed November 15, 2009

I had stayed in this hotel (studio executive) for 3 nights. Hotel is value for money and with good location. The lobby is at level 4 of the building. You can access to The Top Spot Seafood Centre through level 2, walk towards the carpark and climb one stair up. Try ABC seafood at Top Spot. The hotel is within walking distance to Waterfront, Main Bazaar, Sarawak Plaza, Riverside Shopping Centre, Tun Jugah and other major place of interest. Chong Choon Coffeeshop (famous Sarawak Laksa) is also within walking distance. Ask the hotel to arrange for shuttle to Sarawak Culture Village ($20 return/$60 entrance), the shuttle will pick you up at the hotel.

However, have to say that there is only one restaurant in the hotel that serves only breakfast. The hotel pool/gym is small. The variety of breakfast is very limited. Overall the room is satisfactory, big but not as new. But given the price, nothing to complaint about. Staff is friendly and nice. You have to ask the hotel counter staff to call for a taxi as taxi is limited at hotel entrance. Just to share on the cost of taxi that I had took, hotel to civic centre RM$10, hotel to the spring RM$12, hotel to airport RM$26.

I will recommend this hotel to travelers that want a good and less expensive stay, and close to the major place of interest in Kuching, as this hotel is actually an apartment with limited facilities compare to a hotel.
