Great service and location
My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Waterfront Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and the river view from our window was stunning. We enjoyed the infinity pool and sauna. The hotel is ideally situated in the historic district of Kuching, walking distance to the river, adjacent to a shopping mall and beside India Street Market. We’d definitely stay here again.
