Hilton Kuching Reviews
not up to the real Hilton's standard Nov 01, 2012
This luxury hotel set on a great location – in the heart of city over looking at the Sarawak River. It is walking distance to restaurants, pubs, and 7-11. We also walked to the place where we had our massage.
The reception area is by a huge lobby and waiting area together with bakery and a travel agent. I can’t really commend on the staffs’ service though, as our tour leader checked in for us.
My first impression for this hotel was not so good. 2 out of 4 elevators in the hotel were not working. We went in and out twice.
We had 2 single beds in a clean room however the bed was way too hard for me. The room equipped with a flat screen TV, a large working desk with chair, coffee and tea making facility, coffee table and a sofa. We were delighted to find complementary bottled water for the 2 of us.
The bathroom was a good size with bathtub and it was clean with enough amenities.
2 little negative points though:
1- There was an “extra noise” with the TV. The TV was making a strange noise on the channel I watch – Fox Movie that kind of annoying
2- The internet is NOT FREE
I am not sure if I would go back to this hotel though

Great location and ....food! Sep 28, 2009
We stayed 4 nights in this 4 stars hotel that sits in a central location with many attractions at walking distance and great views.It is quite comfortable but starting to get a bit old
We had a spacious(33 m2) Executive double room with a comfy kingbed,large opening windows and amazing views along the Sarawak river with lots of activity to watch.We enjoyed the flat TV,a desk with high speed internet access,the marble bathroom,the free magazines and mineral water.
We didn't have our breakfast downstairs in the Waterfront restaurant very crowded but offering a huge variety of courses.We only had our continental in the quiet Executive lounge where you get as usual,free snacks,drinks,internet access..
We didn't use the swimming pool(sunbeds,pool bar).
Following the advice of Kong(Almond72) about the relative poor quality of the food in Kuching,we had all our dinner in the Hilton Waterfront restaurant which offers also a great variety of food on its evening buffets:countless, tasty starters and desserts,fish and meat grilled "à la minute",good vegetable but poor cheese:) and we weren't bored by the iterative lobster of the buffet!
