My sister and I stayed here for a few nights in October. The staff were really helpful and friendly, the rooms were comfortable (good air con) and the breakfast was nice. The location was the real bonus. Close to the waterfront and lots of lovely restaurants.

Abell Hotel Basically, it is right across the road from Sarawak Plaza & next to Tun Jugah Mall. It is more expensive than Nova Kuching but it has a mini-fridge, man.
