      very good value for money and ideal location”

      As a repeating visitor to Kuching location was the most important point for me. The Imperial Riverbank is in the perfect location and offered an excellent value for money. Very friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms with everything needed. Good breakfast offering Asian and also European choices. Many dining, shopping and leisure options in walking distance. Only negative point would be the TV program, as limited choices and mostly channels in Malay or CHinese language only.

      Worth it”

      First trip to Kuching. Imperial Riverbank is great value for money. It has all the room necessities, friendly and helpful staff, walking distance to most attractions and eateries in the city. Topspot seafood court in UTC building is just 2mins across the hotel. Housekeeping could improve by paying attention to room carpet cleaning, shower area tile lines which are coated in black mold (a few) and not recycling stained face towels. Hope to return to the same hotel but with increased effort in housekeeping to prevent sliding rating.

      Above average hotel at the reverbank”

      Stayed at Kuching just for two nights. The hotel is at the riverbank, however, the important feature is that no rooms are facing directly river - they face the city/street, only small portion of the river is visible from the room. As far as the room is concerned, it is clean, lice layout, large, comfortable bed, all the bathroom amenities included with nice shower. Breakfast is tasty, with different varieties of local and international food. Couple of words of advice - advertised price does not include taxes and fees which come about 17-25% on top of the room price. Unless you want to be right at the riverfront (but still not be able to see the rever) there are cheaper lodging options and if you consider AirBnB, you probably can get rever view with the same/cheaper price. Another thing to mention - if you want to make copies or print pages, don't to it at the hotel where you will be charger exorbitant (by local standard) amount of money. There are cheaper options for this.

      Pros : Strategically located near to famous attractions. Walking distance to Kuching Waterfront, the famous cat statue, eateries, shopping mall and souvenir shops. You can take the small boat just behind the hotel to go to the other side of the river to buy the famous layer cake. The room is big with comfortable bed and pillows. Con : The only setback for this hotel is their parking space. They have limited parking space (less than 10) and we have to park either at the side of the road or at nearby hotel with expensive charges.

      In overall, everything is nice staying at Imperial. The room is very clean, everything is in good condition. Me and my girlfriend are having great time in this hotel. The choices of breakfast is not as much as we expected. If you intend to drive, don't stay at this hotel because they don't have parking lot and you need to pay to park in nearby car park. This is my only disappointment. The rest are good ! I would rate 7/10 to Imperial Riverbank !

The rooms area real nice size with lots and lots of counters to place your belongings. All amenities you might need are provided. The beds were large with lots of pillows and the bathroom is very modern with lots of hot water and the best shower we have ever had at any hotel anywhere. The breakfast buffet that is included was really good with lots of Malaysian/Western dishes to choose from. The location was perfect. A short walk to many of the main attractions that Kuching has to offer. Lots of good places to eat closeby and two small shopping complexes one across the street and one a couple of buildings down. I highly recomment this hotel.

Must be one of the best hotel showers I have seen, lots of pressure and lots of hot water. The staff were all very nice and always helpful. Breakfast was adequate but no more, not your 5 star buffet but certainly there was enough choice. With so much good food in Kuching you might be better off finding some great noodles at street stall. The location was very good . Bottom line is that we would certainly stay here again.

      Great value for money in central location”

      My family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed for 2 nights in a deluxe twin room. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. Although we didn't have a view of the river, it was great that the hotel was located right on the riverbank so that we could go for a walk easily. Would have been good to have a swimming pool available to cool off from the heat. Complimentary buffet breakfast had a small variety of options, but this didn't bother us because we were happy to go out and enjoy the wonderful local cuisine (Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee) close by. It was very unfortunate to see that most of the shopping centres close by are empty now. My elderly parents stayed in another double room on the same level as us and I was grateful that the shower wasn't a shower in a bath type. So it was easy and safe for them.
