              available car park and at the center of the city

              the reception situation, and should be a arrow to point which lifts and way to go to the room.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Nice location to plan visits in Sarawak. Good facilities within apparthotel. Staff very kind.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              The apartment is at a great location, 5 minutes walk to Kuching waterfront and Topspot seafood, a great place for seafood. I rented a 2 bedroom unit which was furnished with comfortable beds, good shower, washing machine and dryer [really handy] and full kitchen facilities. Really value for money especially for family with kids. The apartment share the same building with ocbc bank, it is easy to locate if driving from the airport. Parking is also convenient at the basement.

              The pool and recreation area is still under renovation despite notices on its website shows that it is suppose to complete by May. Breakfast could be better but I suppose for the rate I was paying, it was adequate.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              The location is not far away from Kuching waterfront, about 5 minutes walking. The Top Spot (seafood stalls) just behind the hotel. You won't worry about the facilities. Everything complete for the apartment suite. There are 2 bedrooms, complete kitchen, complete living room and all facilities are prepared in the apartment suite. The staffs were also very warm and helpful. The hotel charge was same as mentioned in our online booking without any additional. Even though we supposed to have 4 breakfast per day, but the hotel didn't put additional charge for 5 of us. So happy along staying there.

              Everything perfect for me and family.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Breakfast was good, and internet access easy. We left an international plug in our room, and when we went to get it two days later housekeeping said it was not there. I don't think another guest would have noticed it plugged into the wall, so we are disappointed it was missing. It was room 1002 and we stayed from 26th to 20th March

            • Family with children
              8.2

              The hotel staff very helpful & knowledgeable.. Maybe your hotel just renovated the lift a bit messy.. Overall very pleasent & value for money..

              Apartment room should have 2 toilets..

            • Family with children
              6.2

              the room just like our own home furnish and well equiped

              aircond too close to teh kitchen cause bad smell

            • Single
              8.8

              Very close to town and my working place (walking distance). No food problem and close to the eatery places in town

              Yes, but my feedback is the sliding window cannot lock. The room no is 807. Feeling not safe at night. Thank you

            • Family with children
              7.8

              The Reception staff were exceptionally helpful, kind and courteous assisting us in all manner of questions. The apartments are good value for money and near to the best local food eateries. They were spacious and fairly equipped.

              Breakfast was not enough variety and the staff were not very polite.The bathroom was not clean enough. We also booked because of the facilities such as gym and pool which were being revamped when we stayed.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              We were comfortable in our accommodation and well looked after by all the staff.

              the only difficulty we had was with the clothes washing machine which was not operating correctly.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Good location with car parking lots, quiet, good security, is a very good place to relax and spend time for holidays.

              Is a nice quiet place for relaxing

            • Single
              7.4

              The rooms were clean. Location was awesome (close to all other 5 star hotels) in the heart of the city. The breakfast was moderate. Was a fairly nice hotel for a businessman. The price was good

              Internet was slow. The rooftop pool was closed due to maintenance. They should have mentioned that on their page.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              I travelled with children and we choose This hotel because they had a swimmingpool. But they forgot to tell on the HomePage that it is closed from15. December and for 2 month.!

            • Family with children
              5.8

              The location was awesome as it was situated at the city of Kuching town

              The swimming was under renovation as that's the main purpose of our stay

            • Family with children
              7.4

              The apartment is huge. And it is within walking distant to the shopping/eating area.

              During our 4 days stayed in the apartment the Wifi connection did not work / swimming pool also closed also the breakfast is very-very simple
