This has been probably the best hotel in my 9 months wandering throughout SEAsia, great downtown location, high quality rooms & service and, above all, the amazingly friendly & helpful staff: after 10 nights with them, Raj, Musalim and Jo-Lynn easily became best friends, or like a second family, like the rest of the staff:)) I owned a boutique hotel myself for many years so I know what I'm saying!;) Also had the pleasure to meet owner Jackie to whom I wish the best luck with all her interesting projects in several different fronts, and hope to come back in the near future to further explore the surprising Cat City and its natural surroundings! Keep going this way Batik Boutique crew and take care😄😉
While there are many really good things to say about Batik Boutique Hotel (location, clean, big rooms, a good selection of Scotch whiskey if you care about that), what really separates this from other places we've stayed is the attentive, hospitable, welcoming, and helpful people working there. Especially Jo-Lynn & Raj! I cannot say enough about how helpful and attentive they were. Felt more like staying with friends who wanted to do everything possible to make sure you enjoyed their city. And because of them, we really did. From suggestions on places to go, things to do, restaurants to try, confirming and making reservations for us, they were simply the best. Thank you!
This hotel is in an amazing location especially for food hunting. Top spot ( cheap and fresh seafood dinner), noodle descendents, and chong choon ( famous sarawak laksa) are just a stone throw away. We managed to get to the river front, carpenter street (black bean coffee) and lau ya kheng (pork satay) all by foot! They provide good tea and coffee facilities . Their coffee is from black bean coffee. Bathrooms are equipped with Tanamera spa products. When we arrived, we were greeted with a shot of tuak and kek batik. The staff also asked if we wanted to join the owners for a hike the next day! The hotels 'quick guide' to kuching was most helpful as foodies on our food hunt. The staff are attentive and accomodating in advising on which are the best places, best tours or even guiding how to do the visits yourself if you don't want to follow a tour. The hotel also provides free airport transfers (one trip to and from the hotel) subject to availability. A tip: If you book through an external site (such as agoda) they won't have your details so make sure to contact them directly and they'll be sure to help. Best of kuching hospitality! Would definitely visit again.
Batik boutique...ahhh this hotel is where I really started to relax, to love kuching and love the staff. The staff treat you as if you were old friends, welcome drinks and cake is a lovely touch followed by genuine interest for your plans around Kuching, offering their advise on local tourist spots giving us maps and directions. Masalem (think that's his name) is wonderful! He ordered us a private car to take us to see the rafelesia when it was in bloom, all for crazy cheap prices. They do so much for you, service above and beyond. As for the rooms, they're amazing! Good and spacious with the best rain shower we've experienced in the last 6 weeks, wonderful bathroom amenities not just the little plastic bottle of gel but China dishes with aromatherapy shampoos, conditioners, washes and body lotions. Smells amazing! The beds are so comfortable, I haven't slept so well in my life. The breakfasts were a mix of buffet and ordering from a menu, the French toast wins over everything everytime. If you're still reading this and are wondering is batik for you, go with them! You won't regret it I'd stay here again in a heart beat (we even extended out stay because we didn't want to leave) Thank you batik for the amazing memories ❤💖❤💖❤💖
One of the best hotel I've stayed in Kuching especially the best location spot in the city. Would like to thank the team of the hotel especially Jo Lynn for providing a great hospitality and giving suggestion on where you could enjoy your nightlife by just walking. Great atmosphere for spa in the hotel room where you could feel comfortable and relaxed. The food was great and luxury in such a decent price. Would definitely recommend my friends to this hotel.
Great location in the city center. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staffs especially the hotel manager, Ms. Jo-Lynn that have been very helpful gave us a perfect stay even just for a night. Thumbs up for that! As for the hotel itself, from the kind, courteous, friendly staff to the unique concept comfortable room ,and cosy environment. Could also ask for any help if you're having trouble with your " To-do list" in kuching during your stay. The experience was great. Attractions and local delights is within short walking distance from the hotel. Definately highly recommended! It's a true sample of excellent hospitality that you'll never regret.
There are myriad hotels in Kuching; few are memorable. Batik Boutique is one of those rare places where the conflux of intimate surroundings and personable staff immediately put you at ease. Everything feels instantly familiar and welcoming; while, the locally-inspired decor conveys a subtle sense of warmth that is lacking in even the most high-priced of Kuching’s establishments. This is the sort of hotel where the staff will remember your name and show a genuine interest in your stay. Its location, central to the best nightlife and day attractions, also means you have the option of walking almost everywhere. It is for this reason that I chose to stay at Batik again after having stayed there several years prior. Though years had passed, my impression had not diminished. On my first stay, during the Christmas period, the thematic changes made to accord with the season were commendable and altogether heartwarming. Simple touches, such as receiving a handcrafted Christmas card, added to the experience and set Batik a level above. My second stay, in December 2016, was also punctuated with similar gestures that increased my sense of belonging and measurably improved my stay. True to form, the service offered by the staff remained as personal and frank as my first time. The staff speak fantastic English and are happy contribute their vast knowledge to travel plans. All this factors combined have made this my go to hotel for any future visits to Kuching.
he room was big and clean and the bed and linen were fresh and comfortable. The best hot shower we had in Asia too. Breakfast was great too, and the staff were very nice to us. even the manager she helped us to arrange our trips personally too. Nothing bad to say. Highly recommend this hotel!
January 2017 stay with wife and daughter. Had communicated with them for some time regarding trip and desires while in Kuching. Have never had such personal attention....and that was from the entire staff of 7 that we met. All were so eager to meet every need, point us to the best activities, and help us get there. Stay in many high end hotels annually and often find 1-2 individuals that provide excellent service. This was beyond compare. Every day of our stay---24/7 they were on the spot. All went like clockwork....taking care of rooms, meals, drinks, tours, transportation, etc. All went way overboard to make our stay the best. At the end of every day they are there and truly interested to hear what we did. Location is perfect....close to all. This will truly be your home away from home!
This is a very homely Hotel. Very welcoming with a traditional drink. This hotel is so convenient cos' it near to tourist area and food places and shopping. When we want to buy Kueh Lapis, they drove to the special place to buy it before sending us to the airport. Very personalize service and very helpful in intro us to the best place to eat and visit. Highly recommended hotel and super value for money.
