We arrived at this hotel & wondered if we had done the right thing! It seemed to be right in the centre of a few local shops in the middle of nowhere. We had to climb a few stairs to the first floor where the reception was very basic. Our room was another couple of flights up & on first impressions it was not so great. We found it to be clean, although very old & in need of a few repairs. There were bars on the windows which overlooked the back of the shops so quite a dirty area. The toilet & shower were in the same very small room but worked just fine. The bedding was basic but comfortable although the airconditioning was not really that efficient. The staff were lovely, the manager introduced herself & offered to change rooms for us but we got comfortable where we were & everything turned out ok. We also got to meet the owner who was a lovely man & everyone was so friendly & kind to us over the 5-6 days there. We actually added a couple of days to our stay once we found how easy it was to get around into the city etc with the great bus service at the door. KFC was 5 minutes walk down the road & a couple of cake shops opposite KFC so once we sorted the food problem, we were fine. We also found a small convenient store a few doors down so that was so cheap for anything you needed. A good place to stay for the budget traveller & many things to see & do in this area. Kuching waterfront is beautiful, Semmingoh is a short bus trip away & a must for anyone who wants to get up close & personal with Orangutans. The Cat Museum is nothing great but super views from the top of the hill. We would definately stay here again.
