Hotel located at Waterfront with bridge to Kuching North. Close to Chinatown and easy access to lots of local food places. Nice walking along the Waterfront and the local shops, like going back in time to earlier days in Singapore. Ventilation in room not too good. Woke up each morning with smoke smell in room. Aircon can be a bit noisy when turn on high. Had problem with WIFI for the first 2 days, until the hotel provided a dedicated device for the room. Nice hotel. Clean and very convenient. Will certainly return with other family members for a holiday, and travel out a bit to the surrounding areas and explore the various cultural offerings.

A very nice hotel. My room was spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately, I got sick shortly after arriving (Covid) and had to leave for quarantine.
