Although one can't miss much of a location in Kuching, this hotel is nicely located. Rooms are spacious enough and offers handy facilities: good buffet on the first floor and an outside pool on the forth. Adjoined is the big Riverside shopping complex. One can enter directly (in slippers) from buffet on the first floor.

I went here as part of a work trip. Was very disappointed with the hotel, especially since it is supposedly a 5-star rated hotel. 1.

Stayed for 5 nights at the hotel. The room was good and the wireless worked well throughout the hotel. The pool was closed for renovation which was a bit disappointing but it is close to the river which has a lovely walk. The staff were friendly especially the door staff. Breakfast buffet had a variety of dishes.
