We spent just one night here as we were transferring to the Batang Ai Longhouse Resort the next day. The hotel is a bit of an eyesore on the river front but you cant deny the rooms that face the river. An excellent view! Especially of the sun setting over the river.
Kuching is a fantastic place. Its very small so you don't need more than a day to explore it in my opinion, and it has a really laid back feel and great places to eat.
We walked to Junk for our evening meal and the food was amazing!
The hotel rooms are very outdated with hair dryers out of the 70's. Whilst we were there they had started to refurb some floors (thus the banging and drilling from 7:30am!) so I suspect they will improve in time.
Everywhere is in walking distance so the hotel is ideally placed.
Definitely insist on a river view room!
There was lots of choice for breakfast and we enjoyed sampling a lot of it!
If you're heading to the Batang Ai Resort like we were, make sure you fill your cases with water and beers whilst you're in Kuching - its a fraction of the cost. If you go straight out of the front of the hotel and cross the road, there is a small alleyway leading to a little convenience store.
