The single room is small just fit a bed. However, noise from next door can be irritating when the next door occupant took shower.

Breakfast is average and could improve with local favorites like Laksa Sarawak, Mee Kolok and Mee Jawa served daily.

Location is within walking distance of the riverside. Its room is clean and there is free wifi.

We were put in room 313. The room is quite small hardly any space to perform our solat. There is no wardrobe, only a little corner with curtain to hang your cloth and the shelf is falling apart. There is no proper tap to take wuduk, we have to use shower and bathroom are poorly design. Room is clean and we have window overlooking junks behind shop-lots. Breakfast are

Stayed here for the 2D1N from 8-9 June 2012 for a leisure travel to kch. I have stayed in many hotels before around kuching and I found this hotel in the near kuching town. Clean hotel, near to India Street and several shopping arcade. Easy to find the nearest food stall and malay cafe around. Check-in was fast and given the room that I had booked. Simple decorations and amenities. Breakfast could be better. Staff hospitality was ok. This hotel a bit quiet but I strongly recommend this hotel to others. For malay travellers this hotel could be their good choice as the mosque nearby. Love he evening scenery along sarawak river. For budget travellers, this hotel offers you the choice that you looked for. I would stay in this hotel again...

Want to share my brother's experience staying in this hotel with others. He was sent to this hotel for quarantine. Upon arrival to the hotel, no one was there to assist on luggage but it is acceptable as the hotel was probably short on staff or due to covid safety measures. Corridors towards the hotel room was very dark and the walls along the way was chipping off (guess no maintenance was done to the hotel), upon entering the hotel room, a strong cigarette smell covered the entire room

Bathroom was dirty, room was obviously not clean thoroughly before, towels was dirty, bedsheets was dirty, air con in the room was leaking and You can even smell someone smoking in the room next to you! What's worst is that the air con wasn't working in the middle of the night. When called the receptionist to complain instead of sending their maintenance staff, they asked to switch off the aircon for few minutes before switching it on again.

I have just One question, shouldn't a hotel that is listed as a quarantine center prioritize cleanliness?

What's worst is that this hotel cannot accept criticism. We posted a comment in their facebook page regarding these issues, instead of improving their services, they sent their staff up to my brother's room & threatened him to delete the comment on facebook. Is this how you run a hotel? Threaten hotel guests for leaving a negative comment?

Strategic location within Kuching interesting & tourist places of visit and only 5-10 minutes walking distance to the famous Kuching Waterfront. And also the entry to local Kampung lifestyle along Jalan Datuk Ajibah Abol.

Found myself booking this hotel when my first choice hotel is fully booked. Its located near the old Kuching mosque, and easily accessible. Check in was fast, and the friendly staffs usher me to my room in no time. Its nicely decorated, with most amenities available and seems to be quite new albeit a bit on the smaller side - at least the room I booked.

Buffet breakfast has quite a variety, but fret not, local restaurants are just a short walk away. It should be enough to start your day. The hotel might be a bit off the touristy trail but one can sample what the locals do and shop at the nearby Pasar Satok. Or take a short walk to the Kuching Waterfront. Do take your time and enjoy what Kuching have to offer - sight, sound, history and culture :)

We picked this hotel due to its close proximity to Kuching Marathon 2014 starting point at Padang Merdeka. It took us about 4 minute's walk only so we saved on taxi fare. It is also within walking distance to famous Waterfront and the city's point of interests. Check-in & check-out are easy and the staffs helpful & friendly. We booked a triple room (a queen size + extra bed). Nothing fancy about the room but it sure helps for a night's rest before the race. The buffet breakfast...oh boy, it was simple but delicious! (Esp. the fried kuey teow and vege soup). I'd definitely stay here again.

It is Ramadhan and I am flying off to Kuching conducting training. The request was to checked me in a hotel near a masjid for easy breakfast and solat tarawih. The principal booked me Dormani Hotel beside Kuching Grand Mosque.

The evening flight took off at 19:45hours and touch down almost two hours later. Arriving at the hotel, it is almost 22:30hours. They have just completed their Ramadhan breakfast buffet. Checking in was smooth as prior booking has been made by the principal. I was given a single room for my four nights stay.

It is a simple hotel. The reception is small and furnished with very minimal fittings. However, it has ample seating for guests waiting to checking in or checking out.

Going up to the room, you need to use the key card to enable the lift. The room allocated to me is at the second floor at the corner of the hotel. It is small but enough to fit in a standard single bed with side table, a writing desk and a dressing table. If you wish to share the room it can accomodate a portable extra bed.

The room is at the end of the block and the plus point is I have windows around me except at the writing table which they place the flat screen TV as well. The basic amenities such as electric kettle, complimentary coffee and tea as well as a bottle of drinking water is provided. I did request for ironing tools and was sent promptly by the housekeeping staff.

During my stay they are having promotion where room charge is included of morning breakfast (sahur). So that is very welcoming to the Muslim guests as they can have their morning meals before fasting at the hotel.

The hotel cafe is located at the ground floor next to the reception. I can't comment their breakfast offering as for the sahur, they served reasonable menus but their porridge was awesome. They also have function rooms that can accomodate about 300 pax on the same floor.

Before I forget, all rooms receive complimentary newspaper in the morning and free wireless internet access. Please ask for their security key from the reception. Overall, it is a nice hotel to stay especially if you are looking for a place near a masjid.
