The best thing about Premier Hotel is its location. It is nestled right smack in the heart of Sibu Town and from its central location, most of the popular tourist attractions in Sibu are within walking distance and you seriously don’t need any public transport, just a leisurely walk around town would help you complete your visit itinerary. To add to the convenience, there is even a shopping mall linked to the hotel and sharing the same building.
Being a three-star hotel, there’s no swimming pool but most other basic amenities were available. The room was very clean but looked a little tired. It has all the basic facilities except that the furnishing was a little bit wanting, just practical at most and really needs upgrading. The bathroom was poorly equipped too and we had to request for a few standard items which were not supplied.
Wi-fi connectivity is provided at no charge but they have strict control over its usage, resulting in every device being given a different set of username and password, provided by the people at reception. This is in contrast with many hotels in other countries that have started to provide open or unsecured wi-fi connection within the hotel premises, which is a plus convenience for the hotel guests.
For diners who want to play it safe, there’s a lovely restaurant, New Capitol Restaurant, just across the car park from the hotel and they serve some good Chinese and local dishes. There is plenty of food in Sibu and there are many outlets, coffee shops and restaurants scattered around this part of town. As Sibu is basically a Foochow town, there are plenty of Foochow food to be enjoyed here and their simplest and tasty noodles called “Kampua mee” is marvellous and can easily be found during breakfast at every corner of town.
There not many hotels of international standard in Sibu and Premier Hotel is rated among the top few and convenience being the deciding criterion and selling point, it is definitely a good choice hotel for travellers to this town.
