read some reviews earlier and glad that i have made the right choice.
stayed here for 2 nights for the first time. Everything is okay. The only grumble is the hotel need to improve on the in-room wifi service. You can only get the wifi signal at the respective floor lobby area.
Breakfast dining is average (located at rooftop area-17th floor), but the English Tea is tasteless. Good view of the city at the restaurant bar at this floor.
During my stay, chanced up with the "outgoing" Chief Minister of Sarawak who is here for the water theme park ground breaking ceremony in Miri. As such, the lift was particulary slow as only one lift is operating while the other two is "reserved" for VIPs usage. Also witnessed some good lion dances activities at hotel reception area & local VIPs who were here to attend an important dinner function by the chinese chamber association on Saturday night
If you need any groceries, the Bintang Mall is there for your needs. Opposite hotel is the government clinic (in case you need it) and Ming Cafe is just a stone throw away from hotel (2 min walk). No problem of finding food. Canada Hill is visibly located at far left opposite end of the hotel.
overall, it is a good experience.
