Friendly staff, ideal location for business in the central area. Old apartment. Room that I stay is old but relative clean and well maintained. The sauna and steam room were both "temporary out of order". Wi-Fi was down for 3 days out of my 5 days stay. Fortunately the friendly staff kept me updated on the progress which was due...

Front office staff was friendly. Room was better than expected. Even provided 'sahur' in lieu of breakfast for muslim customers. Aged but comfortable room. Value for money. Ideal for family. Rating should be 'good'.

Stayed at this place for 2 days. Mine wasn't an apartment but it was a room. The hotel reception is at the 4th floor and you may find nobody at ground floor. Ground floor quite lonely at night. During my stay only 1 lift was working and other 3 lifts was not available. After registration at the reception you have...

Stayed in the Deluxe 2-bedroom apartment for 4 nights in April. First apartment provided (#601) is terribly old- and looked NOTHING as advisertised. The safe failed, toilet barely flushed (must hold onto flush), washing machine wasn't working. Maintenance guy and a supervisor attended our room very quickly. Compliments to supervisor (Wilson Tan) for moving us to another apartment when we...

I travelled with my wife and three kids. We stayed at Ariva Gateway for our first night. The exterior of the building was unimpressive and we need to take the elevator to reach the lobby. The lobby was simple and clean and we were promptly attended and allowed to enter our room although it was not yet 1400. There was...

The hotel lobby located at 4th Floor. Room and lobby is old and smelly. Floor carpet is dirty. Breakfast is not good. Internet was very week. No hotel carpark but parked in front of OCBC bank or college (beside the hotel) and need parking coupons. Otherwise, you will get a summon from the authority. Located behind the famous TopSpot Seafood.

Never having visited Kuching or anywhere in Eastern Malaysia, I was not expecting much for accommodations. This hotel was a nice surprise! Everything about the hotel was good and I enjoyed my stay there. It was a simple walk to where all of the city activity was so that was also nice.
