              Nothing. We're not coming back.

              Massive miscommunications happening too frequently. It gets really annoying. The minibars in the rooms never ever worked. Room service is sloppy, and takes repeated calls to remember our orders. It is not quite a good location as compared to the other 5 star hotels in the vicinity. Not that you can help it on this one anymore anyway.

            • Single
              7.8

              Staff were lovely, very helpful and pleasant.

              We asked for a non-smoking, quiet room, but were put in a smoking room on the main road.

            • Family with children
              4.6

              This is not a real 5 star hotel. I feel like this is more of a three star hotel. The hotel service and the cleanliness of the hotel does not reach a five star hotel standard. The hotel restaurant is very basic, nothing very special. The wifi Internet is very expensive and extremely weak.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              The room was spacious & comfortable. About 15 minutes walking distance to the Kuching Waterfront and the Sarawak museum is just next to the hotel.

              Buffet Breakfast was so so

              The breakfast is good and the potter is helpful

              Its quite an old hotel and need to be repainted esp the door and wall, the mattresses are really old ones, the room I'm staying is very small, given a choice with the same rates, I would take other hotel in kuching like grand continental

            • Group of friends
              4.6

              the breakfast was good..especially the beef rendang.

              the location is strategic but need to take one round about 400metres to the river/city centre where you can find the cat monument.good for those who rent a car.

              7.8

              Ambient in Lobby & all picture in room..Very classic.

              8.8

              Helpful and friendly staff

              Rooms are in need of a 'brighten up' (new carpets, furnishings) as it is all quite out datef now

              Its proximity to the Riverside and the Craft sale shops

              We had to call the house keeping for a toilet which could not flush, for bedroom slippers. The latter ought to have been there when we checked in. The service man who came to repair the toilet flush rang the door bell unnecessarily so many times within a short period not allowing me tiome to respond to the door!. I ticked him off. He did apologise, tho

            • Family with children
              6.2

              security. The staffs are excellent

              Master bath room the water was stasis . it didn't drain well. The room towels were not there and need to request from house keeper.

              7.8

              Quick registration and friendly staff

              Furniture in suite rather old and torn.

              7.8

              Amazing value for 2 and 3 bedroom suites! Beautiful view of Charming Kuching from the suites.

              Room maintainance is required as carpet, wallpaper, sofa look very old and worn.
