good location, 2 minutes to Riverside”
the hotel was well-located near the Riverside and beside Harbour View hotel. Local food could be found around the hotel. 6-8 mins walk from carpenter Street where the popular Lau Ya Keng foodcourt is. The room was not big but it had ample space for us to put our bags on the floor. The bed although for two people, was only slightly bigger than a super single. two slim people could sleep on it but there wasn't much space to turn or stretch even. new towels were given daily but the towels were very old and some had holes and brown stains. They gave 2 bottles of water daily. The toilet was small but had just enough room for a shower. A soap dispenser was provided, the soap dispensed was diluted, probably to save costs. The drainage was choked and the toilet flooded. My feedback about this to the receptionist was addressed within 2-3 hours. The female receptionist in the daytime is pleasant. They should provide floor towels outside toilet as it can be rather slippery.
Worth Money To Stay ”
for those looking for budget hotel with 3 stars stay, u shud consider to stay here, its near to town, its cheap, and its convenient.
Everything was just nice, I love it! 💯”
Everything was just perfect 👌🏻
Good and affordable for budget traveller”
- the pillow i had was smelly. need to check on that. - 1 bulb were not properly working - tiny roach came out from a toilet, a mothball might help to avoid such insects from getting into the bedroom area.
A simple but value in money trip”
Basically everything is quite fine! Just a bit noisy for the next door hotel "Air Ventilation" noise but it won't affect mine sleeping mood! Since the hotel is cold and chilled plus with a LED TV accompany me~i mean the Programmed! The staff there really helpful and nice~even help us to call for taxi services (^U^)!!!
Im coming with friends (4 person including me) Im booking for twin bed but when I arrived, I get ONE queen bed. Can you imagine that? The toilet door cannot close properly, the area near club and so noisy. Can get enough sleep. So me and my friends decide to check out early in the morning as before 5am.
the location and price are very satisfied..convenience and service of the staff was very unsatisfactory...bathroom too small that bath water out of the door and the floor wet...shower cubicle door does not fit ... ... no privacy
Good and nice..Recommended ”
The room should be add on big natural water and 3 in 1 coffee with small water heater.
CLOSE TO THE WATERFRONT”
Very close to the waterfront, 7E and many eateries. Beside the hotel is the best cheese naan restaurant in Kuching according to the locals. I have always choose Place2stay chain in Kuching due to its affordability and they have TV and hot water as well as big bed for individual visitor like me. However, I notice that the cleanliness of the bed have gotten worse. I think they did not wash their bedding for quite some time. I know friends who work in the hotel industry said that hotel usually do not wash their bedding after every use, but this chain particularly, the bedding feels unwashed for such a long time. My skin is quite sensitive due to eczema and got some reaction from the night i stayed. Overall i still recommend people to stay here but the hotel should improve on this matter.
The pillow and bed are not clean, got few hair found on the bed. water leaking from the bathroom to the floor. upon check in no staff come to the counter after press the bell, need to look for staff for check in.
Near to Kuching Waterfront. Limited parking space. The surrounding is noisy at night bacause near to pub. The room is vey small.
Good for weekend trip”
Good for weekeend trip or just a few days.
So far so good”
Strategic location. The only thing I concerned is using the drinking bottle to refill the shampoo. Please label or use a proper storage to refill the shampoo. It is for safety concern.
For the small and cramped hotel room was nothing surprising as it is a budget hotel.. but please, seriously consider to replace the old air conditioning.. or at least, service it properly.. and I believe, cleanliness is one of the core in service industry.. just take some extra care in cleaning the bathroom and bed sheets properly can go a long way... and.. with minimal extra cost too.. don’t just think about cost cutting, cut it wisely or lose out the entire chain..
VALUE FOR MONEY”
Plan to stay at the Place2stay Chinatown but it was fully booked. For less than RM50 per night through AGODA, the price is very good for the room that you get. I stayed in the double compact room in the 2nd floor. Facilities are enough with private shower, TV and double bed. The condition for the bed are so-so. I can feel the wires when i sleep. But i dont really mind. However I notice they did not change the bed sheet (My friend who was working with the hotel industry said hotel usually change their sheet once every 2 day, however i was staying there for 3 nights and they did not change even once). Toilet was a bit mouldy especially at the sink. I used the iron they provide and the setting was at the lowest (off), but it burn my clothes and i have to throw that away. Pros : Hot water, wifi and TV.
the hotel doesn't have lift,I was given room at 3rd floor.cry 😭😭 the room was small,a/c was functioning well,water in bathroom have smell like haven't been used for ages.but the location are superb. late checkout only rm10 until 1pm.overall,just don't expect much with the price u pay.
OK for a night's stay if on tight budget. Check in was slow. After the stated check in time of 2 pm there were still occupants (at 2.30 pm), said the last twin room we had booked. We had to go out and come back later for the check in. Room was extremely small, and if you big in size, need to get another room.
THE ROOM IS DIRTY, BED SHEET, TOWEL ITS LIKE NOT BEEN CHANGE AFTER THE PREVIOUS CUSTOMER. SHOWER ROOM I CAN SEE THE SOAP STAINS ON THE WALL. I DNT KNOW WHAT HAPPEN WITH ALL STAFFS THERE, THEY SEEMS SO RELAX AND PLAYING WITH HANDPHONE, SOME ARE WATCHING TV. I HOPE THE MANAGEMENT STAFFS WILL READ THIS!!!
