          Convenient. Easy access to eateries and shopping vicinity, there is a few convenient shop. The main bazaar gets very quiet when most shops close slightly after 7pm. I managed to take a long walk along the Waterfront which is just across the road. That is a big plus!! Day and night shifts reception were ever so friendly. Helpful always greeting me with genuine smiles. Trinkets is reasonably priced, their 100% cotton t-shirt, local made weaves (pua), freshly baked lapis cake is a must to buy.

          Kuching Waterfront Lodge is a wonderful shophouse travelodge that sits right at the river side. There are numerous amenities and travel sights that are within a short walking distance. The area is quiet at night but I never felt unsafe. The rooms can be rather small and dated but it is comfortable. There are many unique and classic pieces of furniture around the property. And although you have to climb a flight of stairs to your room, you can always ask for help at the front desk. Plus the price makes it value-for-money.

          a gem of a budget hotel. the rooms were spacious for a budget hotel. very clean, comfortable beds, clean sheets and towels. the rooms were cleaned everyday. the toilet was spacious and clean too. the hotel is a Chinese style heritage home. the breakfast is spartan (bread with condiments ie jam, margarine, peanut butter) and coffee /tea. location is superb just opposite the riverfront. many eateries within walking distance. will definitely stay again. only downside is the non-existence of wifi.

          Great location and ambiance”

          I chose the Kuching Waterfront Lodge especially for its location and local Sarawak ambiance, and in that regard, I was very satisfied. It was great being able to walk out of the front door right onto the waterfront and also be within walking distance of most places I wanted to go. I stayed for a total of four nights in early August in two different rooms. I must mention that I booked a double room and never received one, being given a twin-bed room both times. I understand that the Rainbow Music Festival was approaching and that the hotel was fully booked especially at the end of the first week of August, but when you reserve something, you expect to get it. Also, the wi-fi in this hotel is downright awful in the rooms and needs to be remedied. It's not fun leaving the cool air-conditioning in the room to have to use wi-fi in the humid lobby or common areas. That being said, if I ever find myself in Kuching again, I'd probably stay again.

          Clean new toilet, water pressure was very strong which is always a plus point. However in the triple room we stayed on the 1st floor, the queen sized bed mattress was in a bad condition. My husband and son couldn't sleep entire two nights. Gave them backaches the next day. Also there was a big American cockroach where the AC is. I'm totally terrified of cockroaches, so luckily I only saw it on the day of check out. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

The staff was very helpfull and lovely and helped me with short trips and would always ask how my day was and what I had done that day. Also very good advice on prices. I would definately stay here again and advice people to stay here! Breakfast could be better but hey walk around the corner for an outstanding laksa! Tea & coffee troughout the day are free so that covers the breakfast ;)

          There was no mention of no windows in the rooms. For the same quality we could have been in a B&B. The breakfast is almost inexistant and we had to wait long time at night for the guardian to come open the door as he was sleeping and the code at the entrance does not work. The buidling and location are really impressive nice but it's not worth the price.

          Great location, great service”

          Centrally located and very easy access to all tourist location transport, very friendly staff, beautiful hotel design

          Located right in the centre of the Kuching Waterfront area, without a doubt the best thing about this place is the excellent location, followed closely by the friendly staff. The shuttle bus stop is close by, and you can ask the hotel staff to book it so that it picks you up right in front of the hotel. The main bus stop (no. 1) is a few minutes walk away, for destinations accessible by public transport. A large shopping centre (Plaza Merdeka) is about 10 minutes walk away, and of course there's the waterfront itself, which has some great views and plenty of food stalls. Finally Chinatown is also just behind the hotel for an excellent taste of local food, including Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and generally fluent in English - I definitely recommend going over your plans with them as they will be able to give you all sorts of tips and tricks to enhance your experience. They're also very enthusiastic when talking about the local culture and scenery - it's clear that they love their city and it's contagious. The lodge itself is beautifully designed in traditional Chinese style (Nyonya I think?), and the owner has acquired all sorts of interesting antiques as decoration. The sky-well is another interesting feature. The building is mostly wood and can be a bit creaky. The room was a bit small and the view was not great (but maybe just luck). The bed was wooden and was quite creaky. There were only two electrical sockets (one of which didn't connect very well) and our tap dripped sometimes. There was no wireless connection in the room (so you have to use the lobby), but the staff told us they were planning to install routers in the rooms soon. Apart from these minor gripes, the room was clean and comfortable, and quite pleasantly decorated. To sum up, the excellent location, friendly staff and beautiful building design as well as affordable price make this place an excellent recommendation for your stay in Kuching.
