Hilton has been in Kuching for many years and recently went through a thorough refurbishment in all their rooms and some of their facilities. Located right at the water front, this is a great convienient choice for any visits to Kuching. Many tourist sights and abundance of restaurants are all within walking distance. Do try their famous kolok mee and sarawak asam laksa which are available in most of the local restaurants.
Stay at the Executive Room on 12th floor and the club lounge command a fantastic view of the river (I think this is the best hotel with river view). Do ask for room facing the river. The refurbished room was nice with everything expected for this class of hotel, but the bathroom is rather small with a missing bath tub. I truly enjoyed sipping a cup of coffee at the lounge and enjoy the rivew view, while attended by warm staff. (Compliments to Amy at the Club Lounge) Breaksfast at the lounge is quite limited compared with the variety offered at their restaurant. Evening cocktail comes with simple finger food and drinks.
Although the lobby still looked rather dated and the renovated gym/spa facilities seem to be completed half-heartedly (you can still see some old equipements/facilities - the half covered old jacuzzi in the steam room as an example), this will still be my preferred choice of hotel in Kuching.More
