The staff, the location and the chic fit outs.
Wonderful. The staff go way above and beyond the call of duty in providing all necessary info. You feel like a long lost sibling the moment you walk through the front door. The rooms themselves feel like a back lane boutique hotel in Melbourne. Plenty of little western quirks in the fit outs. The location is just a couple of short blocks from the riverside promenade. I would heavily recommend this place if you are looking to pass through Kuching.

Pleasant stay at CBD Kuching
Location, roomspace and service
Batik is the 3rd hotel in Kuching I picked. I have been in 2 other [very] nice hotels before viz in 2013 and 2010. Again my stay was for at least 6 nights so I wanted a comfortable stay with all amenities you may expect, pleasant atmosphere and staff. Obviously a good meal is important. You can find it all at Batik. Point of improvement is the a la carte bfst menu. At least some more fresh fruit should be on the table. We only got some small pieces of watermelon. Also I missed fresh yogurt ansd freshly squeezed juice. You may expect this at a hotel that ranks itself as a 4*. Sorry to add that the coffee also needs extra attention. It is basic and not freshly brewed. Batik should poor fresh coffee. Since I do have 2 [very] good accommodations in CBD Kuching to compare it with, I suppose management will consider some changes for near future.

A cosy convenient corner of downtown Kuching
The location is great. I love the back courtyard and my balcony that overlooks it. And the staff were friendly!
Three nights is a long time for me. But the central location and the overall experience of living in the hotel room did not make me feel bored or restless. Shops are nearby, the staff is always friendly and after a while I considered the hotel my home here in Kuching. I like the room and the theme of the interior. Overall I feel that the hotel is unpretentious, and although small with only 15 rooms, I never felt like I was in a budget accommodations. Happy to return.

Nice little hotel
Location, rooms and staff
I have always stayed with the main hotel chains along the river side. I am glad I made the switch to a smaller hotel slightly further in. The hotel is located along the older part of Kuching and it was very pleasant. Check in was good, with very personable staff, and I enjoyed the breakfast provided. The hotel room was big and comfortable and provide great value for money.
