Nice aged, clean hotel, good location, value for money”
Traveling to Kuching over last 5 years, stayed in various hotels. 1st time tryout this hotel. Wonderful experience, will return for next trip. Pros - Big spacious, clean room & toilet, very clean i.e. no musty, stale smell, thick mattress with firm beds, comfortable, my husband said is one best bed ever slept in hotels. Value for money-Free breakfast for 3, family room (1 king & 1 single) RM130+per night. Good location- 15-20 mins walk to waterfront, Top Spot seafood, Chinatown....beside & across roads foodcourts open for breakfast to lunch - famous Sarawak laksa, kolomee, etc. Free parking, plentiful in hotel basement, front and along slip road. Parking is always a problem, staying in Waterfront hotels like Merdeka Palace, Grand Margherita, Imperial Riverbank. Courteous, friendly, helpful staff, smiling faces greeted us daily. Cons - None... except some may not like old furniture, bits stain bathroom tiles. Well Done - Grand Continental Hotel Management & team

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. As soon as we arrived we felt as if we were at home. We we're given a free upgrade from a superior to a deluxe room. You can ask for free newspaper which is delivered to your room. The wifi is excellent and I had no problem during my stay. I would like to thank Mr.Robert for his helpfulness and making us feel welcome. When I asked him where to see the pottery factory he went out of his way guided us. Thank you very much Mr.Robert and the whole team of grand continental. The room that we stayed in was big and clean with all basic facilities and also a bath tub. The room has a retro look and the breakfast is also good. However, one thing I would like the management to look into is the room service staff attitude. I asked them for a bottle of water as I was leaving and they bluntly and said, ' One a day!' I was quite offended by the way and the tone she used. Anyways, apart from that I will give his hotel 5 stars. I will for sure stay again when I return to Kuching. Highly recommended for business as well as leisure travelers as it is located in the city centre and almost all major attractions/ places are easily accessible.
Value for Money & Winning Heart n Mind”
Me and my other 2 travel buddy, we always go for a good room and CLEAN (because i'm super sensitive with cleanliness) hotel with affordable price. But what we got from Grand Continental Kuching i beyond than that. We got : - Clean Room eventhough the buliding is old but we can say it is well maintained. - Friendly Staff (i guess it is the innate trait of borneo people. Born with courteous) - Tasty and variety of breakfast selection We haven't face any problem or issue during our 3D 2N stay. Overall, we got more than what we pay. Great Job and Well Done esp for Mr Robert. Thank You.

Amazing comfort for a great deal”
A friend and myself stayed for two nights in the month of August 2014. We were lucky as the weather in Kuching was cool and the crowd was minimal. We booked a room with a queen bed, however, were offered an alternative (larger room with twin beds) upon checking in. We took the twin beds instead due to size of the room and were very pleased with our choice. The room had all the necessary amenities for our short stay such as TV, desk, cupboard, iron (with board), mini bar and kettle (with instant drinks). The temperature in the room could be controlled quite well with the switches available. This made our stay very pleasant. However, we did wish there were bedroom slippers prepared as other similar hotels, and we did feel that the hotel was quite a distance from Kuching town. All in all we had a great experience, made nicer with a lovely concierge. I would highly recommend staying here with a few friends or in small groups.
Quiet cozy room”
The Grand Continental Hotel offers easy access to the city area and some major sightseeing places in Kuching. Tourists can walk around the streets of Padungan which has a colourful history of itself. Besides that, travelling to the airport is easy as taxis are always available. No worries about food because one can find plenty of choices at nearby hawker stalls. One can savour delicilous local food such as Sarawak Laksa, Kolo mee and a lot more at coffee shops situated just beside the hotel or opposite it. The room is comfortable with the basic necessities such as shower, air con, hairdryer and closet. Overall it is a good hotel which offers tranquility and great hospitality to the customers.
met our expectation”
The hotel may not be modern and attractive .. but it is clean and everything works . Staff members from check-in to F and B to Housekeeping are polite and cheerful. , provided my wife and myself useful infor abt Kuching e.g places to eat and shop and also taxi charges. The hotel is in a good location. short distance to city centre . If one is not prepared pay too much this is a good hotel to consider.
Great Hotel Service”
We stayed at the hotel for 3 days 2 night. its was a great experiece because the location of hotel is near with city of kuching. Its easy for us to have a great meal around the kuching city and we would like to come back again.
Value for money”
Stayed at this hotel for the Kuching Marathon event. Considering per price of a room per night, I felt like it was really worth it. Even though it's a dated hotel, with some parts of wallpaper being yellow/smudged and old carpets, but it's very clean and the staff are very friendly. Location is pretty good too. It's around 10-15 minutes walk from Waterfront. Top Spot, a good place for dinner seafood is also around 10 minutes away. All-in-all, a good place to stay for those with a budget. Easy to get a taxi from here too as half of the time there is at least 1 taxi waiting there. If there isn't, you can simply ask to call for one.
Good hotel with friendly and helpful staff”
We have stayed a few times at this hotel during our kuching trips. The rooms are good, but have a retro style... other than that the rooms are big and comfortable and the staff are very good and friendly. Mr. Robert hats off to you! I always look for Mr.Robert as he is a great guy and always going out of his way to look into the needs of the customers. He suggested us where to shop and places to visit. Wonderful service and we felt very welcomed. I will highly recommend this hotel to anyone who visits kuching as it is budget friendly, clean and comfortable place to stay.
One night stay”
Everything was all right. I have no complaint. I stayed for one night, I guess not enough time to really judge the hotel. But, so far, I have no problem with the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who want to stay in Kuching. Thank you Agoda and Grand Continental Hotel, Kuching.
great hotel with good service and friendly staff and near to kuching city with quite enviorment , near to kuching museum and waterfront and new dewan undangan negeri complex
Nice hotel, excellent service”
we booked a family room at grand continental kuching and we were thrilled with the size of it. there was a large single and a king in the room as well as lots of extra room for luggage. room was clean, good size bathroom (shower in the bath with a large step out). staff were very friendly and accommodating, buffet breakfast was included and was quite tasty. however, there is nothing much around this hotel, and other than a few small shops, it is about a 10 minute walk to closest shopping. our first trip to kuching and while we had booked for 6 nights, we only stayed 2 due to the fact that kuching wasn't really what we were looking for in a holiday. overall, hotel was fine and booking through agoda simple and easy with a very reasonable price.
Great for Mid-Budget Trip Vacation”
This hotel is great to begin with and comfortable. For those family whom like to spend holiday at Kuching with a budget between 150 ~ 300/day for a hotel, I recommend here. But make sure you are a member otherwise the price will be quite high. Would like to come here again next time. Only if there is a water park in this hotel it would be fun.
we stayed for 2 nights. the hotel staff were friendly especially the concierge. the room was cosy but a little rustic. the swimming pool was clean. we were quite pleased with the complimentary breakfast. the hotel is situated very near to the kuching city center, and restaurants are just across the road. overall i am happy staying in this hotel
Thankyou for great stay. Hope to stay here again when come to Kuching again. Thankyou Grand Conti. Goodjob eventhough in the first place we been assigned to smoking room but we request to non smoking floor & front office immediately react to out request. Thankyou ☺️

Simple and Clean Hotel”
This is the 4th time returning to Grand Continental. We usually go back for family visits and stay there. The location is convenient to airport and nearby shopping malls and sight-seeing spots. The rate is pretty cheap with breakfast inclusive and large room. The hotel is old, but it is trying its best to maintain clean and tidy room and lobby.
met my expectation!”
my stay in Grand Conti Kuching was surprisingly pleasant as I had to lower down expectation after few review in tripadvisor, but i can say it just surpassed my expectation nicely =) definitely will come back if going to Kuching on tight pocket but needing a nice treat =P
Old hotel with adequate facilities”
i stayed for 3 nights in grand continental, kuching. the welcome by reception staff was warm. the family room was comfortable though the furniture a tad old. breakfast was satisfactory but the staff requires prodding to top up dishes that were finished. i have to highly recommend the front desk staff, stella. she helps me a lot in planning my tours around kuching and getting us a reasonably priced car for hire. overall i am happy with my stay and will definitely come back to grand continental.
