Stayed a few nights for a meeting. The room was clean, and had nice views facing the river. Breakfast good, but food was almost the same every day. Near to shops, and there was a Mc Donalds opposite the road. Tips- ask for a room overlooking the river.

Stayed: October 2017
Thank Nr H

I think either Hilton or Riverside Astana (make sure it is the new wing) should have the best view of the Sarawak River. If the price is lower for Riverside then Riverside should be the hotel of choice. The room was great and with a great view. I initially book for the old wing river view... total waste of time as half the view is block by another hotel. So I asked for an upgrade and top up. It was worth it! If you want river view, insist on the new Astana Wing.

Staff are helpful and it was a great stay for 3 nights. Location is perfect to all the key eateries. Topspot famous for seadfood is just behind the hotel. Walking distance to Waterfront. All the other popular place to eat are 10 minutes walk away, provided you are willing to walk. If you need to do laundry, there is 2 doby running 24 hours within 10 minutes walk for RM 10 to RM 20. I would definitely return.

Room Tip: take the sea view room at the Astana New Wing. Don't bother with the old wing it's block by another hotel

This is my 4th visit to Kuching and stayed in this hotel for 3rd times. The location is very strategic wihich near to the river and Parkson shopping mall is in the same building.
Breakfast is great with mix of western and local food. Hotel room is clean and spacious.
It is also near to the Famous Seafood hotspot just 5 minutes walk from the hotel

Room Tip: Hotel by the River

Great hotel and price. We stayed in the new wing. Used as a base for Orangutans (full day), wind cave, fair cave & longhouse (one 7 hour day), fantastic day kayaking, and much more. V clean, spacious.

What can I say...just another luxurious western like hotel in Asia. Can be nice to stay in after een couple weeks of backpacking like we did. We got an upgrade to a suite which was nice. The room has everything you wished for, nice views of town and river but like almost everywhere in Asia a bit run down, in need of some maintanance and it could be cleaner.
