            CLOSE TO THE WATERFRONT”

            Very close to the waterfront, 7E and many eateries. Beside the hotel is the best cheese naan restaurant in Kuching according to the locals. I have always choose Place2stay chain in Kuching due to its affordability and they have TV and hot water as well as big bed for individual visitor like me. However, I notice that the cleanliness of the bed have gotten worse. I think they did not wash their bedding for quite some time. I know friends who work in the hotel industry said that hotel usually do not wash their bedding after every use, but this chain particularly, the bedding feels unwashed for such a long time. My skin is quite sensitive due to eczema and got some reaction from the night i stayed. Overall i still recommend people to stay here but the hotel should improve on this matter.

            VALUE FOR MONEY”

            Plan to stay at the Place2stay Chinatown but it was fully booked. For less than RM50 per night through AGODA, the price is very good for the room that you get. I stayed in the double compact room in the 2nd floor. Facilities are enough with private shower, TV and double bed. The condition for the bed are so-so. I can feel the wires when i sleep. But i dont really mind. However I notice they did not change the bed sheet (My friend who was working with the hotel industry said hotel usually change their sheet once every 2 day, however i was staying there for 3 nights and they did not change even once). Toilet was a bit mouldy especially at the sink. I used the iron they provide and the setting was at the lowest (off), but it burn my clothes and i have to throw that away. Pros : Hot water, wifi and TV.

            Good, but can be improved more.”

            Pros : cheap, good enough for a night's stay, near most of the tourist attraction in Kuching, has a coffee shop downstairs. Room was clean and comfortable. Cons : useless WiFi, barely any phone coverage in room, need to ask for towel from front desk because they don't send the towels to the room. Parking is hard to find at times. Tips : if you bring your car, prepare some parking coupons because there is no parking reserved for hotel guests. Conclusion : what you pay is what you get. For me, it's decent.

            good location, 2 minutes to Riverside”

            the hotel was well-located near the Riverside and beside Harbour View hotel. Local food could be found around the hotel. 6-8 mins walk from carpenter Street where the popular Lau Ya Keng foodcourt is. The room was not big but it had ample space for us to put our bags on the floor. The bed although for two people, was only slightly bigger than a super single. two slim people could sleep on it but there wasn't much space to turn or stretch even. new towels were given daily but the towels were very old and some had holes and brown stains. They gave 2 bottles of water daily. The toilet was small but had just enough room for a shower. A soap dispenser was provided, the soap dispensed was diluted, probably to save costs. The drainage was choked and the toilet flooded. My feedback about this to the receptionist was addressed within 2-3 hours. The female receptionist in the daytime is pleasant. They should provide floor towels outside toilet as it can be rather slippery.

            This hotel located behind Harbor View Hotel and very near to Kuching waterfront and the "chinatown" , all are walking distance and you can see the mural as well nearby. But if you having problem to sleep if there is a sound like people singing or karaoke, then I suggest you dont choose this hotel as there are live music performance every night. But for me it not an issue, I still can sleep. The choice is up to you.

            Nice to stay for short period of time”

            I got a bad aircond room for the first night, choose to change the room for following night. The room is okay for me, food stall very near to the hotel and lots of good place to go near the hotel.

            Price, location and room size

            Quite nice hotel. Room a little bit compact. Location is great as it's easy access to food outlets, transportation, Riverside, main bazaar and other hotspots. Not so meant if you have large groups of people. Overall it's really okay

            A Nightmare”

            Good : Cheap Budget Hotel Bad : 1. Room are too small, 1 steps to toilet, 1 step to entrance door from bed distance. 2. When you ask for window, you may get a small square window 3. No towel available until 7pm, and No Daily Towel Change 4. No Daily Room Cleaning 5. No Cupboard, but hangers only 6. Limited TV Channel 7. No Extra Pillow 8. Room No Sound Proof 9. Bathroom is very small 10. Got Ants in room, so don keep sweet things in the room 11. Bad Pillow Quality, too softs 12, Aircon Remote Not Functioning So aircon are not adjustable Overall : A day or 2 stay is good, but if you are seldom in the hotel, as for me this is 1st and last. no more...be careful when choosing hotel in kuching, if just to sleep only after a long day outing, can be considered.

            Pleasant but be reminded this is a budget hotel”

            Central location, near Green hill famous chicken rice and shielded from busy streets

            My room was placed near the stairs and I could hear footsteps! The room is small cubicle, with enough room for 2-3 folks to stand but not walk. The rest of space is occupied by bed and the washroom. It met my needs for just putting my luggage while I loiter at Rainforest Music Festival (Santubong) workshops. At time I will be back to take a short nap. For five or less nights it is OK. But if you plan to stay a week, the small room get be quite claustrophobic. Although the bed can fit two but I think its a bit cramped. So its a nice large bed for one person. Unless close proximity with the other is just what you need :) You can sit by side of bed but becareful of wearing soiled pants while you sit on the bed. Maybe you can upgrade about RM 10-20 extra for better space offering.

            Towel and bed sheet were old and shabby”

            Can't demand much for the price compared to the strategic location this hotel is situated. However, i believe the bed sheet and towel can be more clean next time. the bedsheet and towel were very shabby, old, torn and yellowish. and there is no bath mat in my bedroom. the spring bed is quite old and you can feel the spring everytime u lay on it. the place however situated in a very strategic place with lots of restaurant nearby.
