I loved the hotel in an old Chineese hose as it has got a soul! The room was a bit expensive even with a small discount. It was quite basic but we had a colorful stained window. Also clean and quiet. Breakfast was a disappointment - toast, jam and bananas...

This was an overpriced Backpackers lodge with awful cramped rooms with minimal light through a tiny Window. Breakfast was a joke with about 4 Bananas to be shared between 10 of us. Coffee tasted like Cow S _\t Bread was all there was realistically for breakfast. Considering you can stay in 5 star luxury around the corner for only twice...

Great location across the street from the river. Good room, sheets and towels were new and fresh and they also made up the room in the morning. We got a slow season discount on a room with a king bed. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast area had a fridge that you shared with other guests but most of all I...

Very nice place to stay a couple of nights when in Kuching. Convenient place along the waterfront of the river. All interesting things are easily done by foot. Rooms are not big, breakfast is very simple, but the atmosphere in this old chinese house and the friendly people working there makes up for this. Whenever I return, I will stay...

The hostel are clean and cosy. Our stay included breakfast and that could be better. The service was ok except they forgot to call us the last night where we was going to the airport. That must not happen

This hotel is great for the budget traveler. The room I had was clean and came with hot water, aircon, sheets, toilet paper and soap. The location of the hotel is perfect, right on the waterfront, with an easy walk to all the great attractions. The best part was the service. The front desk staff were so helpful, helping me...

I chose the Kuching Waterfront Lodge especially for its location and local Sarawak ambiance, and in that regard, I was very satisfied. It was great being able to walk out of the front door right onto the waterfront and also be within walking distance of most places I wanted to go. I stayed for a total of four nights in...

In front of the Sarawak river to enjoy a beautiful view it offer a nice start to enjoy your day, close to the bus station.....

If you are looking for place to stay with lots of amenities, this is not the place. I was looking for a special place different from a typical hotel, with local feel and a good location. So this is the place. We booked 2 rooms, one triple and one double but the double was upgraded to triple, so we had...

The four stars is for the location of Waterfront Lodge and the friendly staff. The rooms are ok with working aircon. It took several days and begging to have the wet towels changed, and don't worry about the breakfast. Plenty of eateries nearby. Wi Fi was not good in the room, had to go downstairs for it.
