              A very good potential hotel but has been neglect for a very long time. A very disappointed stayed of 18 nights with a room facing the car park and the bathroom that leak. For my extended 8 days stay in Kuching, I shift to River Side, Astana Wing Hotel.

              A bit on the high side”

              No comment on the facilities n staff, just put 5 stars for that. Hotel is a bit rundown. The room are not modern. Had a good night sleep tho. Aircond is so so. Not too hot and not too cold. Cleanliness is a major issue for a 4 stars hotel such as this. The toilet, especially the shower place is mouldy. Could believe it at first, but after reading other reviews, seems like the management did not look into this i guess? Was charge extra for wanting a double bed. To be fair, its okay to be charge consideing it is an upgrade to a deluxe room, but the cleanliness issue sort of take that back. Should i come again to kuching, and i have to look for a place to stay, i might not stay here unless no other option left for the same price offered.

              Everything is good. Aircond too cold during midnight. Hotel near to shopping mall and town. Easy to find food. Staff all friendly. Quick services. One of pillow quite hard. And the next room too noisy at night until morning, keep laughing and irritating. Overall a pleasant stay and cheap.

              Just a bit disappointed, I booked standard queen size and I come to check-in around 1pm. Once reached at the receptionist, I asked for the availability of the room. However, they said need to check-in 3pm. So, I go somewhere while waiting for check-in. After 3pm, I come once again for check-in and there is no available of queen size. Only left for double single standard room. If you want to swim at level 8 in the morning, please bring your own towel from your room.

              Actually, I was looking for a standard room but none was available ... only the 2 bedroom suite was. It was kinda large ... and quite reasonable for RM 209 or so, though without breakfast. The location was great ... next to St Thomas cathedral, near the riverfront and with a Chinese shop nearby for breakfast.

              We stay in a two room apartment. The cleanliness is excellent. Air cond is cool. The swimming pool is clean, the sauna is ok too. We bought breakfast at RM20 for adult and RM 12 for children, but the food variety is less. With a total spend of RM52, I think I definitely could find more delicious food nearby. Overall, its still a worth of stay with such room rate. Will sure recommend to friends who loves to explore old town with famous food of kuching in walking distance.

              Basically this is an old hotel. Lobby is superb. It's my second time staying here. This round the standard room is spacey and comfortable. The staffs are all very professional, attentive and friendly. But, the minus point is the wifi connection. It was too slow and most of the time I couldn't connect at all. Another one is the swimming pool, which is small - only for kids. Certain time we felt the "chill" and "goosebumps" but luckily we never saw anything.

              The hotel is located in the middle of Kuching town and really close to shopping mall and the latest attraction (the new Hana Bridge). The room rate is really great as compared to the value that you will get. The room is quite spacious, really comfy bed and pillow really help me to have a good sleep at night after work. If I come to Kuching another time, this hotel would be my ultimate choice. Only few things that can be improved is the selection of breakfast buffet and the friendliness of the counter staff. Should be more welcoming. Apart from that, all is great!

Need to wait more an hour, ( made our check in time roughly at 5pm) which was unaccpetable since ive booked the room few days earlier especially in this kind of well known hotel.

              Unsatisfied and creepy”

              The rooms were disappointing, I booked 3 bedroom apartment, 2 rooms. They mentioned kitchen which I thought I could do some light cooking. Turns out it's just a microwave to heat our food, with no bowls n plates. I felt cheated here. Aircond was HOT. When we called their repairman did come. But they just say that the aircond can't be fixed because it's old. So we went to the lobby and request for a change of room. They said they need to send their repairman again to verify that the aircond is not functioning. What were they doing the 1st time?! A little suggestion: if it's broken, fix it. If it can't be fixed, replace it. It's all about repair and replace. And your hotel is scary, with so many mirrors in the rooms. There are 3 bedrooms in the apartment and we only use 2. And we found something else in the electric box in the room, a little black plastic with weird contents inside. You should check the electric box in the room. It's probably nothing but it's just damn creepy!

              Don’t be fooled by the grand decorations of the hotel lobby, the rooms are gloomy and the carpet are dusty. Not to mention the bed spring kinda sinks as it is already quite old. But the location is very nice for tourists and there are car parking available. If you need a confortable stay, you can get it elsewhere, cheaper. Also lack of smiles from the staff.
