fair overnight hotel for business purposes
very grand lobby area and friendly staff but overall quality of the room is average. furnitures and bed are old but fair enough to catch a snooze before an early morning meeting/appointment the next day. walking distance to a mall so that is a plus point.

Terrible, Run Down & Dirty Rooms
Please do not book this hotel for your stay in Kuching. I can guarantee it will be a disappointment. 1) Bedroom has ants everywhere on the walls 2) Beds even have ants crawling all over the sheets 3) Toilet flush doesn't work 4) Broken and old furniture in the room 5) Pillow (only 1 pillow provided) was dirty and stained with pen ink and other stains. Absolutely disgusting. 6) No plug-points by the bed side 7) Terrible service from the staff 8) Toilet is dirty and something's are broken. 9) Wifi connectivity is poor. Almost non existent.

A night stay for Kuching Marathon
This was my second time staying in this hotel. Last year, I stayed with friends in their apartment suite(2 rooms). This time I stayed alone in their Superior Room. The staffs were nice and friendly. The hotel room was so small. Not clean as everything including furniture fitting and carpet were old and dated. The room was tiny. The one of three pin sockets and room safe were not working. Even the telephone socket was falling off the wall.. I had to try to fix the cable connection a few before I could get phone line. I could also spot a few ants in the wall!! The suite we stayed in last year was not impressive either. The real reason we came back to stay here was it's location just next to the starting and finishing point of Kuching Marathon. We ate in their restaurant because of heavy rain. Food was mediocre and expensive. If I were to run the marathon again, I would try to stay in another hotel.

umm i
Beautiful place
Ok...so just got back after a lovely weekend with my 2 boys. Not sure where to start the positives or negatives. Well start with positives. I booked into a 2 bedroom apartment. The place was clean, comfortable spacious and nice and cool. We had beautiful views of the museum, as well as the town. We were lucky to enjoy the fireworks on our first night. In the morning we went for breakfast which costed 22ringits per person. Children under 5 ate free. That was a bargain...and the breakfast was delicious and beautiful selection of both local and continental choices. We then decided to pop in for a swim. The boys thoroughly enjoyed the pool. A bit small for a large hotel but never the less, they had fun. For lunch we decided to take a stroll to the merdaka plaza,literally 5 mins walk. Then we strolled back to the Sarawak museum which was behind the hotel. All with 10 mins walking from the hotel and back. We decided to have dinner at the hotel. 60 ringgit per buffet. Seems a lot but kids ate free....now to me that's a bargain too. The staff at the aurora restaurant as well as reception where amazing. Lissa, nazeen,siti, saiful Mohammed, asalam, daisy where all amazing. Siti sand saiful Mohammed definitely deserve my 5 stars. They were amazing with my boys... Now the negatives.. The place needs a good revamp. Although it was comfortable, u can tell some major renovation needs doing. My bathroom leaked, but maintenance where in hand straight away. The pool was over crowded...but the boys enjoyed it. Overlall... this place was amazing. Yes...could book somewhere else for the amount I spent, but customer service was 100% and we will surely be back. Siti and saiful Mohammed...keep smiling... Love all the way from Liverpool with my 2 boys. 😍😍😍
