Excellent Business Hotel with a good restaurant”

Clean Room, Friendly Staff, City Centre

I stayed at Abel for three nights. I arrived on a last flight and it was almost 12 am when I checked in. The staff at the reception were super friendly, especially Sylvester and Lawrence. I missed my luggage at the airport and they helped to get the contact numbers and my luggage arrived at the hotel the next day. For me, it was a great help and amazing service. The staff here are so welcoming and accommodating. The rooms are small, very neat and clean. Good hot water. What else you need when you are on a business trip. Good location with a 24- hours KFC, many restaurants, banks, Tun Jugah Mall near by. Walking distance to the main locations. I enjoyed the restaurant. One of the best restaurants in Kuching. The buffet system is excellent where people do not get greedy and waste food. Overall I will recommend this hotel, best choice.

this hotel is great, near to all kuching city attraction, can walk to all places. maybank is just in front of abell hotel. see food is at back of hotel. other restaurant like kfc, mac donald, pizza hut is just near by. the shop lot to buy souvenir is a bit far, but walking through the side of the river is not tiring. there are guest parking but not many, first come first serve. the room is a bit small but enough for couple to rest during the night.

location

my stay was good. Abell hotel located just 3 minutes walk to the famous restaurant in town (ayam bakar RJ), 5 minutes walk to Cat Monument and 30 minutes walk to Kuching Waterfront. Check in and check out process only take 5-10 minutes. In front of this hotel got Wawasan Plaza (nothing there but got few fast food restaurants) and bank is just opposite the hotel. I wanna come back.

wonderful hotel ”

Strategic location

We stayed in Abell for 4 nights. We were fully satisfied to this hotel. All the hotel staff are providing exceptionally service, bellboy, security guard, receptionist or even housekeeper, they doing their work very well. No matter how we made dirty to our room, the room changed as new after the housekeeping service. we were really appreciate that. We came back in the night once we park our car in the hotel parking space, the guard always accompany us and open the door locked for us. We also appreciate to them. They're always doing their job with a warm smile on face, we feel like in home. After we checked out and came back to our hometown, one of them called and told us about the baby bath basin we left in there, they thought we forgot to bring back. I think they're really honest. Somemore, the hotel located just beside one of the shopping mall Tun Jugah, we could find our thing in there. We definitely will come back again in next visit to Kuching.

stay at this property on 16th sep to 19 sep. book a room with window but was given a superior room (without window)during check in. came down to carify and was told that all rooms are full and in return gave me a free breakfast. the whole process was ok as the staff handle me well with her sorry and concern looks. on the 2nd day, got my actual room, i could only say its a big differnce in terms of size and brightness. for people that are not on budget, take the superior queen view as it is really worth that little more. overall, i would stay in abell hotel when i return to kuching. reasons: cheap, friendly staffs, clean, comfortable and location

Its my first time travelling in Kuching with my mother and I found Abell Hotel is the best area to stay and easy access to most of the tourist spots. 2 minutes walk to the Waterfront, 5 minutes walk to the famous Carpenter Street, near to the Merdeka Mall (takes Grab for only RM4), behind of the hotel is China town. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The surrounding are very pleasant.

Staff and coziness

Certainly, staff is what it makes a good stay in this hotel. Friendly, with natural smile and willingness to go extra mile to help at any point, people at Abell will outcome their colleagues from more established, "branded" hotels. Location is good, walking distance to most of the things to see in the city. Rooms are cozy and warm, some of the rooms are windowless, but they are equipped with false-balcony type window with nice flowers. Overall, it's perfect place to stay in Kuching.

Value for money, perfect location near waterfront & staffa were really helpful

Great location and very helpful staffs! Stayed at Abell Hotel for the second time as the location was strategic; about 7-10 mins walk to waterfront, 30 mins by car to the airport and affordable price. Hotel is near few eateries; there's a foodcourt in the building next door, kfc at the opposite building and more places at the waterfront. Alternatively for local and cheaper food you can also take a boat (RM1.00 per trip), across the river Kampung Gersik where there's a foodcourt. You can also find Sarawak's specialty; cake lapis (layered cake) and terubuk ikan masin here! Some rooms don't have wifi access but u can request to borrow their LAN cable so be sure to ask at the reception upon check-in. For the quality of hotel and service, I'd definitely stay in this hotel again!

abell hotel is located in the heart of kuching city centre minutes from the water front. the hotel room size was good with a large window to the street. everything was clean and new. you get large flat screen tv from which you can watch from bed. the restaurant carvery is quite goos especially for meat lovers and they serve breakfast everyday. the staff were very friendly and helpful. they greet you with a smile at the door. the down side to he hotel is that wifi is only available in the lobby and not your room. even if you are willing to pay it is not possible.

The soundproofing are not that excellent, we can always hear people walking around and slamming their doors. I would love to stay in this hotel again.

Centrally located budget hotel”

Central location, close to local eateries, lots of rooms

Our stay was good till we needed a taxi to bring us around. Apparently the communication with the local taxi company did not go as well as we had hoped. Won't say it is the fault of the hotel or their staff but it certainly was a low point. Nonetheless, hotel was centrally located. Lots of local eateries around, if you know the area well. Walking distance to Kuching River where one can board the local ferry to cross over to the villages to purchase kek lapis, a well-known pastry made in Kuching.

clean room, friendly staff, central location

Abell is a solid option in Kuching for its location, cleanliness, and staff. However, be aware that rooms are quite small (and the least expensive have windows facing walls rather than the street) and that internet access is limited to the lobby and some first floor rooms (and it's not particularly fast even in the lobby). But still recommended.
