                Great location directly opposite the Darul Hana bridge and waterfront, next to Old Court House and walking distance to major eateries and Plaza Merdeka. Room was smelly, sheets stained, tv need password and attached bathroom window is beside common room where ppl can see you shower through the window. Not recommended for ladies. Stayed in room 118 dear ladies do ask for other rooms. Other than that it's good for short stay.

                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.

                It was an old hostel with very strong Sarawak feel. The location is good as lots of attraction within walking distance. The hostel charged extra for extra pillows. Suspect the bed linen is not that clean as after the stay, feel body parts itchy.

                Too expensive for what it is”

                Nice location and very nice building

                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.

                Centrally located old fashioned good budget hotel”

                Centrally located, comfortable room, low cost

                Slightly run down hotel, but right by the river promenade and Chinatown, so the location was very good. The room was small, but it had air condition and hot water and the bed was good. It is supposed to include breakfast, which is extremely poor - a self service counter with white bread, some jam and packets of instant coffee. However, forgetting about the breakfast, the hotel is still a great budget option.

                Nice budget hotel”

                location, friendly staff

                It was a pleasant stay. The staff is helpful and attentive. Room is clean although it's a backpacker hostel. The only thing that we are not satisfied with was the breakfast. Only few pieces of bread and coffee/tea. Nothing much to be complain, as the price is cheap.
