Reviewed 4 January 2017

The room is nicely decorated and clean, preferred the west room with the view of waterfront. Very near to shopping complex and easy access to food and beverages places within walking distance. Located at the golden triangle of Kuching centre so you will get easier public transport or you can just walk along the city bcs the attractions are all...

We had a one night booking.com but were ahead, they were happy with a walk in and honoured the B.C rate. Good place to stay. Breakfast can be found elsewhere for less. Undergoing renovations at the moment which caused some power issues through the day. A large room with nice outlook, but the pizzazz of the entry was not extended...

There is really nothing much to moan about for the price. We stayed at its sister hotel the Riverside Majestic (same owners) previously and this hotel is better. Since we asked for twin beds, the room faces the river and has a lovely view. This is most probably the cheapest (along with the Riverside Majestic) riverside 3/4 star hotel compared...

Reviewed 3 December 2016 via mobile

A very average hotel in the middle of it all. Small room, congested lobby. Hard to get parking since they prioritize people who attended wedding/event than staying guest. Hard bed, very thin pillow. Noisy air cond. Very basic in room amenities, no bathrobe & in room sleeper provided. River view was quite nice though.
