I stayed around 9 days at this hotel. Clean, cheap and friendly staff specially the lady called Bita. The room stuff is not totally new but still clean. If you are not happy with the room you can ask to change it. A bit noisy from the window early in the morning but that's not only this hotel, all hotels... More

I shall say it is ok, but not quite good enough for me i guess... Yes, it's walk distance to some beautiful place, good restaurants and all, but the room was quite small for three beds, plus we got some trouble with the aircond... already told the receptionist but take hours before it eventually fixed...

Me and my parents went to Kuching not booking ahead a place to stay. While eating at the restaurant in front of the inn, we decided to check it out. They offered a very cheap price for a standard one double bed and one single bed room. Once we got inside the room I was quite taken aback to see... More

Th hotel itself appears nice and well set up. The rooms are moldy and the air condition doesn't cool very well. And then there is no wifi in the rooms. We were willing to overlook all of these inconveniences as we are seasoned travellers, but then the bars kicked off. Music was pumping until 3 am on a week night.... More

My sister and I stayed at the Rafflesia in May this year for a week. When we arrived the receptionist greeted me by name and we were able to check in to the room early. To have air-con and a private bathroom for the rate charged was amazing. We were very grateful to be looked after extremely well by the... More

As far as value for money goes, I am struggling to think of a better place I have stayed in anywhere in the world. At a cost more or less the same as a private room in a hostel, you can stay in a private room at the Rafflesia Inn and have your own bathroom, TV and AC. If you... More

The hotel is located in the same block as a karaokee which ends at 2:30am at week ends. If you need a good sleep before an expediction to the jungle or a city visit, this is definitely not the good place to stay. Moreover the receptionist was unable to advise us anything to do in the area.

Love their great service! Great budget for your stay @ Kuching! Everywhere, foods & shopping & waterfront walk is around near the hotel. Great Service at counter! Their Staffs are very friendly.
