    Exceptional staff”

    Batik Boutique is the perfect place for a solo traveller who enjoys the luxuries of a spacious and clean room with the added bonus of plunger coffee and boutique teas in your room. As it is a small hotel there are plenty of options to meet fellow travellers either in the dining area or in the lively outdoor courtyard. The staff are what make this hotel so unique. They are all exceptional. Always happy for a chat and to offer advice or assistance on where to go next. A special thanks to Jo-Lynn who knows so much about the area and beyond. You have made my journey so much richer. And thanks to Jackie for your hospitality. Batik Boutique is definitely a hotel I will return to thanks to all of the staff.

    Deluxe Room excellent”

    This hotel was a great stay for a couple of quiet nights in Kuching before heading off on a jungle adventure. The deluxe room had the comfiest bed and the most luxurious bathtub! The soaps and teas provided in the room were excellent and the room was very spacious. The breakfast in the morning is a la carte and enough to leave you feeling very full! Great location, quiet enough even though there was construction next door, and the staff are amazing, even giving us a lift to the airport last minute. The interior has a wonderful feel and is very artistic. A great place to spend a night or two.

    The staffs are very friendly and thoughtful. They gave great accommodation about how to move around the area, esp the interesting places to visit. They even helped book a taxi for us to visit Long House village and Semenggoh Wildlife Center. The knowledgable taxi driver shared many stuff with us. :) We had a good time I would recommend it to those who prefer good locations to nice local food, interesting locations and shopping malls.

    Fantastic Hotel!”

    Couldn’t be happier with my stay here. The room was huge, well appointed and very comfortable. The staff here is absolutely incredible. Very friendly and extremely helpful; from recommending things to do or places to eat, to helping book hotels and plane tickets, the staff could not have been more helpful. They make you feel so welcome and seem genuinely interested in helping you in any way they can. Breakfast was delicious (highly recommend the French toast!) and the welcome treat of rice wine and cake was incredible. I highly, highly recommend staying here!

    The hotel is old but was kept quite well. Very spacious room but just older as the hotel has been there quite some years ago. No carpark so not advisable if you are driving. Breakfast is from ala crate and limited choice. Location definitely a plus point for this hotel. Very near to waterfront, Sarawak Plaza, Riverside Majestic etc.

    Budget worthy hotel”

    A boutique hotel built to support the local economy personalising the type of trip desired into reality. By that I mean the wonderful staff at Batik Boutique were able to assist with a foodies travel plan, the adventurer, culture, art etc. We honestly (despite trying to research) had no plan upon arrival and then any plans we did have, the long weekend and string of public holidays ruined them. Luckily enough, the friendly and approachable staff at Batik were able to assist. To say this is where the hospitality and service stopped would be satisfactory, but surprised as we were the hospitality kept coming. It was however (the titleless) Jo-Lynn, her intelligent witty and comedic conversations kept us spending The room itself, clean and spacious room with large and comfortable bed. Plenty of desk space to work, and lay out luggage. Lots of powerpoints next to the bed. Closet room was abundant and the shower was spacious and showerhead powerful. Free wifi was fast. Breakfast was good.

    I feel very warm when i step into the hotel as the friendly staff welcome me with a local tapai drink and local layered cake. During my checkin it was raining and the staff is nice to remind me not to get cold as I was wet. This is nice location if you wanted to visit Kuching and know the town more. I'm sure will come back.

    Staff were amazing, location, comfort

    We were very impressed with the service provided - an example of where it is the staff (all of them) who take the hotel up a few notches. Jolene, the manager helped us arrange bookings, guide for the hike to Boko, finding information about hotels nearby with access to their pools, and to top it all, offered to drive us to the airport. Aside from being comfortable, the location was perfect too, within a few minutes of the water front, restaurants and bars. We stayed for 5 days and loved it. Thank you very much to the staff for excellent customer care.

    Special hotel but a little bit far for center”

    design, staff and concept

    Batik Boutique hotel always be my choice everytime I went to kuching for these 2 years. When I first time went to the hotel, it was just opened and very good. The staff was attentive and all facilities was new. During my last stay, I can feel the hotel getting older and not well maintained. The air-conditioning start making noises and the room start showing sign of aging. However, the staff are still very attentive and good.

    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.

    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.

    Well designed boutique hotel”

    Nice room, central location, close to restaurants

    In general I love this hotel - it is well designed and imparts a feeling of cosiness and classiness. The designer soaps and shampoos add a nice touch. But there are always service flaws, perhaps with being a small(17 room?)hotel. Staffing may be an issue, that they may be too few and thus too stretched. They could not rectify the aircon noise in my room, or pick me up from the airport, and check in process probably takes too long etc. They are friendly though.
