“Good stay”
Reviewed 13 November 2011

Very friendly and helpful staff. Good recommendations for food and setting up day trips. Double rooms are small but just ask for an upgrade to a family room. A lot more space. Bathrooms are clean, nice rain shower. Location is on the edge of the water promenade. Takes about 15 min to walk to visitor center and 25 to walk to bus stop. But location is close to Top Spot (best hawker at stall 25) and other excellent food options (fish head curry, steam boat, fish..)

Overall good stay!

I stayed for 2 nights at De Palma and I really liked it. The room was quite big and the bed very good. Location of the hotel is good as well: Even though it's in a quite area, it's only a five minite walk to the center of Kuching. And the bus stop (e.g. if you want to go to Bako National Park) is just 2 min from the hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

The Hotel is very clean and new with great bedding/linens/towels at such a budget price. Shared floor has a lot of culture with traditional elements. Staff is so friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Pick on on the upper floors or if on the shared floor, pick away from the water.

We stayed for 3 days 2 nights during the first week of Sep 2011. It was an enjoyable stay and we were lucky to have great weather thoughout our stay even though September was predicted to have highest rainfall during the whole year. Check in was fast. Welcome with drink and local layer cakes were served to us. We liked the spacious suite room that we had on the second floor with the balcony of the riverview.Though location is a bit far from town but the tranquil surrounding is worth it and value for money. The staff at reception and housekeeping were helpful and responsive to our request. Overall I would recommend De Palma Waterfront to anyone when visiting Kuching.

The hotel is brand new. The service by reception was very good. The room was huge and value for money especially the one facing to the the river. The housekeeping service was fast and the room was very clean. The lounge on the first floor was comfortable even though you have to sit on the throw pillow on the floor. Nice reading section and the free coffee and tea also. Smoking section is at the balcony facing to scenery of river and fisherman village.
