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

Excellent Hotel!”

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.

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.

Quiet, great hospitality, easy access to the city

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.

Amazing comfort for a great deal”

Room amenities and condition, hotel concierge, hotel ambience

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.

Location, friendly, clean

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.

large family room

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.
