My wife and I have stayed here 2 years in a row for 3 or 4 days and we would go back. The hotel owner Jackie and her staff are fantastic, friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, spacious and modern. The location is very close to the waterfront, lots of great food and shopping. From our room we could walk anywhere we wanted to go. There is a Bang & Olufsen CD player in the lobby, which shows the attention to detail! A great little gem in the land of soulless highrise hotels, recommended!

Room Tip: The front rooms have a street view.

Don't quite know where to begin but I guess I could say that from the minute my husband & I walked in the door we felt at home.The staff are wonderful...very attentive and interested in their guests.From the reception to the room attendants to the bar and restaurant staff, all were so kind and helpful and made our stay terrific.
We made friends with everyone and spent time at the end of a busy day relaxing with a drink & just chatting about what we did and where we went.
The Batik Boutique is a very clean modern hotel. We loved the atmosphere as it is small and so easy to get to know everyone...seems so much more personal than a big hotel. The rooms were spacious and had lots of amenities that even the big hotels don't have...like built in adaptors for computers and cameras etc.( ours didn't work). After staying for 3 nights we left to go to Bako National Park overnight (fabulous) when we returned for another 3 nights it was like coming home.The staff greeted us at the door and were anxious to hear all about our adventures.We loved it at the Batik Boutique Hotel and will definitely stay again if we are fortunate enough to return to Kuching. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel....it is in a great location as well 5 min walk to the waterfront and lots of great restaurants close by.

From the minute we arrived we were welcomed with cake and the local brew "tua". Casual style check in on a day bed and then shown to our modern cool room. The staff were all extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Jackie the owner was full of helpful tips as were all the staff. Breakfast was included and great. Location was really central and transport was arranged if we wanted to go anywhere...Highly recommended...

Lovely hotel in which I stayed for 5 nights, after initially having planned a 2-night stay. The place was lovely and the staff extremely kind and helpful. They went out of their way to have my laundry done (for a very small fee), and were always willing to help arrange transportation etc. The room was well kept, airco worked well and there was more than enough water pressure to make the rainshower an enjoyable experience. WIFI-signal was strong and the beer cold for an affordable price. Location was good too, close to the waterfront.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper you might choose the Courtyard rooms which are not on the main street

Small, clean, stylish and wonderful staff who were so helpful. The location of the hotel near the waterfront means there are plenty of lovely little restaurants and coffee shops nearby. We would certainly recommend this hotel.

This is a clean, modern, stylish hotel in a central location, with good size rooms, a nice bath, free wi-fi, welcome drink and very friendly staff.

We stayed for three nights recently over one of the long weekends. Whilst the experience overall was good, it felt like they'd taken their eye off the basics. We went without toilet roll for 2 days and the breakfasts were below par - the first morning, there was limited choice as the chef had not turned up; the second morning I got a cold Laksa (which I don't think is too hard to warm up, personally); the third morning, after the staff member awoke from one of the tables, we asked for an orange juice, but they didn't have any.

It could easily have just been us that were unlucky over one of the quiet weekends, but often the basics far outweigh any 'boutique-iness'!
