My husband and I spent 3 nights here in July. We spent the first night at the Rannee, then left for a jungle adventure, and returned to spend the last two nights in Kuching. The rooms were clean and spacious and staff very friendly. Our breakfast was decent for a middle-aged couple. My only disappointment: I forgot to empty the...

An all- round excellent experience and a perfect start to our time in Borneo. The staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful. The rooms we used on both visits were smart, clean and well appointed. We would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting Kuching.

Perfect location for getting around. Efficient and extremely friendly staff. Wi-Fi worked. My air-con packed up and they speedily got a technician around but was unable to fix it in good time so I was upgraded to another room without fuss. No complaints and would certainly go back.

Nice hotel, beautifully decorated, with friendly and helpful staff. The only thing to improve is breakfast, since portions are not very abundant. Try to get rooms in the first floor and above, because the ones in the ground do not have windows to the outside, just views over an internal patio.
