Good Location and room Space”

This is my first time stay in this hotel. The location is good because is near to the Kuching Waterfront. The room that i booked is Deluxe King, when i enter the room, i shock for a while, because the room space is spacious and big. Only one thing is that the bath towel, you need to approach the hotel reception counter to ask for the bath towel everytime, after the housekeeping do the cleaning of the room, they will not put any bath towel, you need to request but is little bit trouble. Maybe this is their own policy. Overall is good. I will stay for second time in the future. Thanks

Nice stay”

Location, ample parking

During our previous stay when the hotel was newly open, everything is fantastic. So this time we chose to come back, the staff service has become a bit slower, but still helpful. They did not make the room properly even though we checked in much later than the stipulated time. But they made it right after we requested. Overall its location is great for some good night sleep as there's no bar around. Ample parking is great for driving guests like us. Easy access to the famous breakfast cafe on Abell Road. And behind it the Padungan Road where all the eateries and traditional bakery shops are at, which we frequent every time we visit Kuching. Would rate higher if staff service is great like before (swift response, well-prepared, etc).

location, cleanliness, price

My family and I booked the room for 4 people and were very satisfied with our stay there. We saved money for booking 1 instead of 2 rooms for 4 people with a good price. Hotel Nova was a new hotel so everything looked clean and nice when we stayed there. Just a short walk from Sarawak Plaza and the cat statues.

Budget Hotel in the City Centre”

Good location, within Kuching CBD. Many eateries nearby, both Muslim and non halal. The room is spacious and clean. There are four power sockets in the room, but two of them is faulty. The body soap dispenser is not working well, so every time you can only squeeze out a little bit. The shower will get hotter when taking your bath, temperature is out of control. Therefore you have to take very quick bath, or else may get scalded by the hot water.

Superior king room”

I loved the room. It was spacey and felt like I'm in a 3 🌟 hotel at least. Due to the price of course some things had to be compromised. Like the mini bar and tub. We stayed for 3 nights. The room was convinient for handling the kids. It's has enough room for them to run around. They provide towels and other things each day. The downside is the staff service. First day, after a day out went in and saw the room was not made up. I thought maybe coz they don't want to touch our stuff which was on the bed. For the second day I personally requested to change sheets and cleared the bed so that they can change and make the bed. Came back and it didn't happen. When I looked closer, they didn't even sweep the room clean. Just take out the trash, sweep some space, place towels n soaps n water. That's it. Now I have young children, they better provide a broom if the cleaners are not gonna sweep. But overall stay was pleasant. Thank you

Poor Customer Service & Housekeeping”

Front desk require to improve their customer service skill & knowledge. My room reservation been made via Agoda with full payment since months back and Nova should not allow previous guest to extend stay and put my family in waiting for room clearance. Very poor housekeeping due to staff went out for lunch and weekend with short of manpower? Come on, this is hotel business and Nova should have enough manpower to cover every day and every shift. Nova should review their housekeeping schedule and ensure all necessary items are sufficient. For instance floor mat, my wife requested the mat since day 1 in order to at bathroom door. Regret to say it was never reach my room after checkout, reason being all floor mat or towel were still under laundry. We stayed 4D3N and regret to say no housekeeping was performed during these days. Why? The only reason is poor management in housekeeping section, nobody care & no respect. Hotel value for money & location in the heart of city but these two main factors are really pulling down your overall rating from 1-5, you scored 2. Suggest Agoda to review this hotel and consider to take necessary action to avoid other Agoda members encounter similar incident.

Want to req change room but it's too late at night already 2. The lobby smell of smoke ciggarettes. The were many smokers(maybe the customers) staying here also smoke at the outside loby and when enter the lobby.. it doesnt feel good smell. However overall, im satisfied with this hotel. But have room for improvemwnt such as cleanliness and also provide functioning facilities Thank you.
