Not Bad

It’s a pleasant place for business and solo travellers. The interior is very old and need major renovation.

3 days 2 nights in Kuching

Location, price and pool
3 day stay was comfortable, but the 2 room apartment unit was ur down, carpets were stained, curtains were faulty. room 1508. Although I requested for a non smoking floor, apparently someone on the floor ws smoking.

Urgent need of room maintenance & improvement

location, staff
To be honest i'm very disappointed with the condition of the room. We're staying at 3 bedroom apartment and trust me this place really need major maintenance and upgrade. Fridge is not working, crooked bed, overall messy room. i think if the room is indeed clean it will not look clean since the interior is not properly maintained. we can handle the pack season since there are some celebration going on during our stay but the condition of the room is so disappointing. the management should take action & properly maintain everything.

I Like the Hotel's lobby, its big

Locations, Room and Lobby
We booked a 3 rooms apartment and it is great and feel like home. This hotel has a very big lobby with many seating area for relaxing. Hotel need some upgrade work due to its age. Free internet in the room is great.

Big Lobby

Room, Bed & Lobby
Like the big lobby and corner to relax & meet friends. Though the hotel is a bit ageing, the management is doing well in maintaining its conditions. Will recommend it to friends.

Like a Cold Room

Aircon switch is not adjustable. No sufficient bath towels are provided, need to request from the house keeping.

Nice location. Bad hospitality.

Location. Location. Location.
The location is nice. But the hospitality is bad. Late check in. Supposed to be at 2pm but we have to wait for an hour to check into the room. Reception or front office staff are not friendly at all. The same goes to the manager. They can't handle large group of people who want to check in. They took so long to clean up the room. Only one lift operates. Long queue of people waiting to take the lift. No towels in the room. Took them two hours to provide the towels to us.

Spacious but poor cleanliness, friendly staff

Friendly staff
I was here to run for the first international Kuching marathon so the location was superb since the venue was just beside the hotel. However, the hotel soundproof was terrible. I was staying on the 15th floor but throughout the night i could hear all the preparations going below. Could not rest well at all. The rooms and living room were spacious but cleanliness is lacking. The pillows did not smell fresh and there were even leftover drinking bottles not clear away by housekeeping. The wallpapers were also torn on various areas. The escalator was also slow and only one was functioning for the 2 days i was there. The big plus point would b the friendly staff, everyone i encounter were friendly which sorta make up for the rest.
