I stayed in renovated room so everything seem new and clean. The first room I stayed was okay until there was leaking from the bathroom ceiling and maintenance staff unable to fix the thing on the spot. So i got to change room immediately with the help of the staff. They are really efficient by resolving the matter. The next room was okay too just that many ants around the desk and bed side table. The staff too had clean it but suggesting me to change to another room, but it was not necessary for me to change as I do not bring food and bothering me. Another thing is I accidentally found there is blood stain in my blanket, luckily I saw it before I cover it on me. The breakfast - service is good but the variety not really interesting and maybe it was during Puasa time. Only one chef is available to take care egg station and noodle station. Actually for the room rate + the service I had experienced during the stay, I really not deserve to complain more. But I really hope they can focus more on the quality of the hotel .

Staying 2 nights in their executive rooms there. Wifi speeds are good n their room clean and come with 2 queen beds.water pressure in the toilet good enough to have a nice shower after days visiting the city.10 minutes walk to the top spot seafood food court n surrounding by few shopping complexes . their restaurant always full during dinner time for buka puasa unfortunately this makes the car park full during the period

This hotel has an excellent location on the riverfront, with a lovely view of the north bank of the river. Our first room was somewhat problematic - there was a leak from a pipe in the bathroom, which was unable to be fixed straight away and so we were upgraded to a room on the top executive floor of the hotel which was much better; water pressure and temperature in our first room was quite poor; cleanliness of the room was so-so. However, the hotel has friendly attentive staff and is close to many good eateries - Chong Choon Kopitiam is a MUST (try the laksa)!!

If location is your main priority, this hotel is your safest bet!! It's strategically located in front of the famous cat statue and along the waterfront. Famous delicacies are easily accessible within walking distance! Don't be fooled by the exterior, the interior is on par with its luxury competitors around! It's rooms are newly renovated with modern looking interiors and they are clean! Overall, it's money's the location, facilities and modern rooms for that price!

This is the old hotel but heavily renovated.I check-in for a night last week. When I arrived the hotel. Its scared you. Because outlook of the hotel still maintain the old dirty paint. I feel cheated by the hotel booking web which they recommended. But I think it's ok for a night. During check-in. A nice lobby. The front desk staffs is so friendly including the security guard. No waiting for check-in. I believed the staffs are empowered to do thing. When I go into the room. The set up as traditional hotel but all NEW. I stayed in 4th floor. The 5th floor renovation still in progress. The bed is comfortable. This hotel locate in river front city centre. Shopping and footies is so convenience. All in walking distance. The lobby lounge just in front for the river. It is a good place for a cool beer after work. I will stay again in my next trip to Kuching.

love the location of this hotel. you can just walk to the waterfront where during weekends you can see many stalls selling from food to local souvenirs. experience taking a short boat ride across the river. take a stroll in the evening with the sea breeze , its all very relaxing. i also like the ambience of this hotel, quiet, not too noisy. the room is very spacious with very nice view facing the river. enjoy the stay here

I was visiting Kuching for the first time with wifey and a 3 month old baby Greeted by a very warm n freindly staff Location was perfect being in city centre We were very upgraded to a suite and that was awesome news to us A very room and comfy room I would say They even provided us with a baby crib upon request Special thanks to Ms Romi at the 5th floor reception, she was ever helpful The buffet spread for breakfast n lunch was really good A wide variety of selection Our room was over looking the river You can take a short walk to the Esplanade for sunset. The river cruise is a must try you can walk around nearby, lots of places to eat and shop Definitely a convinient place to stay is visiting Kuching

Felt great with the room size. Great n strategic location. Room service slow. But still...its a great choice for vacation. Those traveller searching for food....nearby area is food...with a lot of variaties....still need to find a great taste of food...suggestion spot is china street taste great for non halal...

I chose this hotel as per recommendation of my friend, and it turned out just nice. I was recently transferred to Kuching as a Medical Officer and had to accommodate in a hotel before my official posting to a district hospital. The room is well-lit, overlooking the town and the famous Cat figurine in front of the hotel. Shops, malls and stalls are all within walking distance from the hotel. I had to elongate my stay for an extra day with a fraction of the price. I'm very satisfied with the overall experience. Will definitely recommend this hotel to my family and friends Two thumbs up!!!!!

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights from 23 April to 28 April in just their standard room including breakfast. Rooms are well kept, spotlessly clean ad a good size. The buffet breakfast has a great choice and very well presented. Hotel staff are friendly, helpful and always have a smile. Pool area overlooking the river is great. The location of the hotel is exceptional walking distance to eating places, shopping etc. Would definitely definitely recommend and we would happily stay again. If you want views over the river go higher floor or up a room level.
