“Cute, simple, little place ♥♥”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013 via mobile

The room was small but clean. The aircond is cold, hihi.. The bathroom was shared but clean with hot water. No breakfast included. Overall, it's just perfect for those who need a place to sleep, bathe & changing. Perfect for backpackers!

rooms are very basic, with air-con but no window, enough clean. friendly and helpfull staff, good wifi service also in the room. should improve the breakfast: just coffe/tea and toast with a couple of jam (and some ants inside them...) and the bathroom: just two showers and only one wc. the "lobby" is really nice! recommended if you are easy-going..

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

This is a little belated, as we stayed at Berambih Lodge in April but upon finally signing up to trip advisor I just had to review one of the best places we stayed on our 5 month trip.
The location was excellent, and staff were very friendly and helpful.
We had an AC room at the top of the lodge, it was pretty small but had a great feel to it. We stayed 3 or so nights then stored our stuff while we went to Bako National Park and then returned for another 2 nights.
The breakfast was simple but fine and the facilities all very clean. Most of all the quiet and relaxed atmosphere made Berambih a great place to stay in wonderful Kuching.

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The common area is really cosy, has loads of DVDs plus satellite channel and also has a communal kitchen area which has everything you need and is very clean.

The rooms are basic be and cupboard with a mirror but that's all you need. Some rooms come with or without windows so if you are fussy about this check before you book as there was no mention online when we looked, the guy was nice enough to ask what we wanted when we arrived though.

Generally it's very clean, toilet is a little discoloured but that's it.

Location is good, it's not far from anything you need.

The staff made this place, they were so helpful and really friendly, even after we checked out they offered us use of everything and sorted transport for us.

If your not planning on spending loads of time in the room then this place is great, reccomeded for travellers!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

We stayed at Berambih Lodge for 4 nights at the beginning of April 2012. Initial thoughts was that the building has an authentic Sarawak feel to it with its long-house style.
Positives:
- Its very affordable place for the budget traveler and is right in the heart of Kuching's China town, not far at all from the waterfront and bus station which is handy when planning excursions.
- Basic breakfast included.
- Water cooler in the Kitchen which guests can use.
- Towels provided.
- Showers and Toilet clean
- T.V. and DVD player in the lounge. Cable channels available. Great DVD collection.
- Friendly staff.

Negatives:
- Thin walls and creeky floor caused restless nights.
- AC was fine until the last night, made clanking sounds and worked infrequently.
- We discovered mice which were running around in the breakfast area, particularly where the ingredients were being stored.
- The back entrance is located next door to a garage which open early in the morning so another cause for lack of sleep.
- There seemed to be a curfew as staff wanted to sleep in lobby area we thought this was poor as there is no T.V. in the rooms. This is very annoying when you're half way through a film and are told to switch it off.

Like I said, this place is very affordable for the budget traveler and especially if you can sleep through noise. Unfortunately we are both light sleepers, we found that we were constantly tired throughout the day and got less done as a consequence. In the end we had to move to another hotel.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the toilet and showers as you'll constantly get disturbed as people are...

they have a nice decorated entrance, and common area. But I'm sort of a bit disappointed when i get to see the rooms, well, it is a decent room, but maybe the nicely decorated entrance made me expect more...

Room Tip: avoid the rooms near the toilet. paper thin walls,

The place was fine and the communal area was a nice touch but there where lots of biting insects around here, the room was also comfortable and fine for the price but I saw my only cockroach here in all my time in Borneo (not that I am fussy) so I have to rate it down for that.
The showers are fine and hot but I have to agree with previous reviews of really thin walls and some rooms share windows to let in light ( they have frosted glass) but there are lots of choices for somewhere to stay on the same street.
