Due to my tight schedule having a few trips to and fro from Kuching, this was the best hotel branch there is.

            Good rate, clean sheets, clean room.

            We were after an affordable clean place to sleep, the hotel served the purpose and more. We first booked for 4 nights and were happy with the hotel and stayed on for the remaining 4 nights of our stay in Kuching. Apart from value for money, another big bonus is the many food stalls just downstairs and along the same street of the hotel. We couldn't finish savoring all the different food in the 8 days we stayed there. Despite all the foodstalls just outside the hotel, the place was v. quiet esp. at night, guess there are not nightclubs bars. For 2 of us, we had a double bed and a single bed in the room.The air conditioning was cool but not as cold as we would like, probably because the room was too big. The room was clean without funny smell. The sheets were white and clean, of the 5 star hotel quality. The staff did not clean the room daily unless we requested, and we had to instruct them specifically to clean the bathroom. We rented a car. The hotel has no parking of its own. We had to park on the street but we managed to get a spot right in front of the hotel most of the time. We only needed to buy a book of parking coupon and displayed them appropriately. As we were out during the day so parking was not a big problem. Overall, we were happy with our stay and have recommended the hotel to many. Will definitely stay again.

            Due to my tight schedule having a few trips to and fro from Kuching, this was the best hotel branch there is. They provide hot water and bath, and not to mention steam pressed iron in order for the customer to iron their clothing. But sadly there only one particular hot water dispenser on one floor and users has to come down to get it. On top of it all, the hotel was the best there is compared to the others.

            Near to Food Court & restoran”

            Clean, quite and safe

            Staffs are friendly and easy going. As I am a Malaysian, so no problem in conversation using Bahasa Malaysia, but they are quit poor in English Language. Hotel is clean and well maintained, water pressure good, but the Air conditioner is not powerful enough to cool the room, may be the outdoor unit needs servicing. The WIFI signal in room is weak. Hotel cannot provide any information about local tour or even a simple town tour, no pamphlets, no maps available at counter. What they can help is telling me to go to any neraby local Tour company or to the Tourist Association. The good about the Hotel is very near to food court and restaurants, food are good and pricing reasonable. Hotel is within walking distance to Water Front? Yes but is about 1.2km. Next door to the Hotel is a Chinese Restaurant, not so noisy during business hour, but having great shifting noise like shifting of gas cylinders or something like that in the afternoon and after 9 pm daily. One bad issue about Kuching is – having very poor road signs to guide the tourist, we used to hold up at road junctions, luckily the local drivers are very obedient and having great patient. I tried to hire motorcycle to roam the town, but can hardly find any motorcycle parking lots. Hotel offer cheaper rate at counter than booking through agents or direct by internet.

            Heaps of cheap eateries within 2min walk

            Really enjoyed our time in Kuching. The hotel room was a reasonable size, and included air conditioning, a shower and western toilet. Filtered drinking water (hot and cold) was available in the foyer. There were 2 internet connected computers at reception, and free WIFI was available in our room. Staff were happy to organize a taxi for us to the airport. They had no maps available, but were able to point us in the direction of the tourist information center. The only thing we didn't enjoy about this place was the other guests. We were woken at 3am one morning by a number of noisy people in the foyer, who were shouting and laughing. I told them to be quiet, which they did. After a couple of minutes, someone tried to open our door (which was locked), and then knocked. We felt somewhat unsafe for the rest of the night, and were concerned our belongings might be tampered with while we were out for the day. Thankfully nothing eventuated. There are a great number and variety of places to eat all around this accomodation, all of which are reasonably priced.

            Stay at Place2Stay is just an average, the photos taken guess is quite long ago, the actual condition is a bit old, but still consider clean. Room lighting is poor, only 1 deem light at room entrance and 1 at corner, so it is only for sleep. Another downside is only 1 plug near entrance which away from bed, this will be very inconvenient as nowadays most people are using smart phone which mostly need to charge the phone almost everyday, we got 3 of us and each with phone & camera, luckily we bring 3-Way-Plug and Powerbank.

            Service

            If you are someone who wanted a hotel with all its glitz and glamour, this is not the place to go to. But if you need somewhere that is cheap and clean, Place2Stay is the perfect spot. The staff were friendly and there are a lot of food stall available around the hotel. The only minus plus to this place is that there is no parking pass for hotel guest. It is troublesome for me to always have to buy parking coupon which only lasted for 30 mins. Hope the hotel can do something on this. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

            First hotel in the city centre,the bathroom is not that clean and quite old.We asked the staff to change the room for us or the branch nearby and he manage to change for us.Very friendly and helpful.The new hotel branch (forgot the name of the branch, it is nearer to club) , eventhough it's smaller and at night quite noisy due to club nearby) but very clean and tidy.Will recommend to others.

            small hotel but good value for money”

            clean place, friendly staff

            place2stay is a no-frills hotel. it is near to everything. only thing i didn't like was that the room smelled of cigarette smoke and that i had to lug my bags up the stairs. there was no help around.

            Cheap and dont expect too much for comfort”

            Very cheap, got few Astro Channel, got water refill machine

            The design and environment at receptionist looks elegant and comfortable. Just imagine, u pay rm50 per night for double queen bed size. what do u expect more. staying at this hotel can get u to nearest shopping mall by short walk, it would takes u around 15 - 30 minutes to nearest shopping mall and water front. But, the sad thing is I request for highest floor without thinking that the hotel might not have elevator, so i have to climb 3 floor to reach my room and the internet service is bad at highest floor. Here are the pros and cons. Pros - can consider quite environment near the hotel - Very cheap. rm50 for double queen bed. - friendly and helpful staff - got iron, and water filling machine - got PC in receptionist - bathroom quite large and comfortable - got hot water - security system is good. - Got many food restaurant for u but the food is fair enough, not the best. - satisfied with the TV programme channel. Would be great if it was the big screen TV - got sells canned drinks in receptionist with reasonable price Cons - The WIFI internet line in highest floor is bad - The room is quite smelly because of the cigarette smoke - The bed is noisy and not comfortable, i found dust at desk and cupboard to hang cloth. - A lot of cigarette thrown outside of the window corridor. - No toothpaste provided. - The towel is quite smelly too. - Can hear the bath sound from next room and people talking at corridor. - Not a very nice view from window, only shops and trees. Overall, this hotel is considerable ok because the price is cheap.

            Great location for the waterfront”

            Friendly staff clean good sized room

            We booked in for one night and first reaction was not a great area but after seeing the room and a good nights sleep changed our thinking.We have now been here for over a week so that speaks for itself.at approx 12.00 per night excellent value breakfast not included but not a problem as plenty of choice on the waterfront, the atmosphere outside the hotel is buzzing in the morning seems like lots of locals come for breakfast and dinner.we are trying to book another week as such good value.easy for going off on the tours and nice and easy to get back to approx ten min walk to the waterfront.

            A good budget hotel ”

            Cozy room, quite surroundings & friendly staff

            I enjoyed my stay here for the price, few things I would like to point out and recommend to the management are; 1) Quick room service for a price would be nice. 2) Double check cleanliness of the toilets and make sure air con in rooms are fully operational. 3) Extra utilities such as basic cable TV, hair dryer etc for a price would be great.

            For the price we paid, its considered acceptable”

            1. Big family room 2. Clean 3. Friendly staff

            We were quite happy with the big family room and the cleanliness of the hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. Since we were out sightseeing the city of Kuching during the day, we only spent our nights at the hotel. The only thing was that we had difficult time to get halal food in the area as most of the restaurants nearby were not halal.
