“hotel that needs updating”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

I have been VERY unimpressed with the hotel. the rugs, carpeting are so old and dirty. You are not provided with internet. The bathroom toliet was dirty, hair on the floor and in the sink, no extra things in the bathroom like tissue, etc. Only Asian hotel I have been to that has no extra toiletries except shampoo and conditioner. Was given only two towels, no washcloth or hand towel and one soap. The shower was grimy with grout somewhat moldy and gross. We had to change room because the one room smelled. I think there had been water damage.
The staff was nice. The breakfast was not very good and we got there at 10:10 and they hurried us out by 10:30 including turning out the lights. The draperies old and dirty and the carpet around the bed was dirty. Even the wood floor needs redoing. THIS HOTEL NEEDS UPDATING!

5 minutes from airport.
Quiet so sleep is great.
Rooms are larger than most business hotels. Same as with its bathroom.
Breakfast adequate worth many choices from continental to local.
Across from hotel are many Chinese restaurants for lunch and dinner. Also some convenient stores.
But no nightlife as outskirt of city. However taxis are cheap and metered or fixed rates. Ask first.
All in I recommend.

Big rooms and comfy bed. Near to food eatries if you dont want to order room service. Locationwise, far from town centre and abit inconvenient if you rely on taxi. Adequate parking and located near to airport. Breakfast was nice with lots good selection of asian/western food. Recommended for business purpose, but for sightseeing better choice to stay in town.

Hi eva865,

Thanks for your “Near to airport” review of Four Points by Sheraton Kuching!

We are so delighted have your wonderful feedback and really appreciate taking the time to share it here. Glad that you had a great stay with us and our hotel facilities met your expectations.

Indeed we are well-located which is close to the transport hubs (Kuching International Airport & Kuching Sentral the Regional Bus Terminal), industrial area and shopping (The Spring Shopping Malls, Boulevard Hyper Malls, City One Mega Malls). Plus just right opposite our hotel there’s plenty of local food stalls available for grab.

We hope that your good impression of our hotel will bring you back to the Four Points by Sheraton Kuching, when you are next in Kuching.

Cheers,

Ivan Chai

This hotel is, first and foremost, a hygienical catastrophe. The panels (in the room!) were dusty, as were literally every single area of the room. Even the electrical sockets were covered with dust. This is not only disgusting and unhealthy, it's also potentially dangerous. In the shower there was a distinct smell of mold. There were ants and other small creatures all over the room, and yet we stayed on the 9th floor. The location is not convinient for leisure travellers.

The service level was OK, but with one significant exception. Upon check-in, we were told that our room was 'not inclusive of breakfast'. Since we believed the kind receptionist, we bought our own breakfast from outside the hotel for the first two days. On the third day, after having breakfast in the hotel's restaurant, the staff looked surprised when we asked for the bill. We were then told by the cashier that 'breakfast is included in your room'. So apparently an employee of a quite highly regarded international hotel chain gave us misleading information that cost us at least 40$.

Well, we survived our stay. However, we don't want to imagine how the hotel will look in a couple of years. It already looks old after being poorly maintained and will be steadily declining, that's for sure.

One of the worst maintain hotel I ever stayed. Service was poor. Problem start when we check in. Check in time was 2pm, arrive at hotel at 2.30pm thought could check in straight away. But they say they were busy the room is not ready will take 45mins to get ready. Ask us to wait at the lobby and will call us when the room is ready. After an hour and 15 min wait when back to the reception to check the room is ready! The receptionist say it is ready 1/2 hour before. I told him what happen to let us know when the room is ready. And what piss me off is, the receptionist qoute when handling me the key card " because your wife is very particular I will give up 2 key card instead of one". So is that indicating my wife is annoying and giving something to shut her up? Is that what you call customer service?

And have to change 3 rooms. 1st room brown water was splashing out of the hole next to the toilet bowl. 2nd room shower room sink was stuck and water was overflowing to the room. Up grade up to a suite room. Even this have a problem. Aircon not working, luckily they manage to fix it after half a day. If not I would have ask for refund. All the room that I am in is dirty with dust on corner, marks on the floor and wall paper peeling off. Is this a 4 yrs hotel?

Had breakfast in the restaurant one morning, order poach egg at the counter and the chef say no more eggs when there is a notice saying order your eggs here. How can a hotel have no eggs? There is more that I have no time to mention.


Conclusion, will not stay in this hotel again or any four point. Problem with management, maintenance and staff.

I spent 2 nights there. The price was 185RM for single room including an excellent breakfast. Gym and swimming pool are nice. Staff is very friendly. Room big, clean and very pleasant.
Across the street from the hotel you will find lot of small restaurant and street food. Very good, clean, cheap and tasty ! So no need to eat at the hotel...
The hotel is a bit far from the city center, but close to the airport.
Overall, excellent value for money and very pleasant place where to stay.

We stayed for one night laying over en-route to West Kalimantan. What immediately impressed us arriving at half past midnight was the flexibility of the staff to give us a late checkout for 1600 the next day.
The hotel is big and well spec'd and the rooms are a good size. However the whole place has a feel of being a bit tired and needing a deep clean. The pool was cold and seemed to have a bit of green verdigris around it. It's convenient for the airport, although if you want the waterfront etc its a 20RM taxi into the centre. The cafes etc across offered good eating at really cheap prices.
Overall a satisfactory stay.

Room Tip: Ring the hotel direct it was cheaper than the Internet.
