Kuching Travel - Hilton Hotel

Kuching Hilton was the first 5 star International hotel in Kuching, and to date it remains the standard by which others are measured. The rooms facing the Sarawak River also have the best views in Kuching, and it is great waking up to see the idyllic river winding its way through the old town.

The design of the hotel was getting a bit dated, but a few years back it was given a major makeover and now the lobby area is quite nice and cosy. Consistent with other Hiltons in Asia, they have put a cafe - Cafecino, right in the lobby. This was a great move as the lobby has lots more life and looks a lot more interesting. Its also a great place for coffee and snacks, and arguably serves the best coffee in Kuching. They use Coffex coffee from Australia.

The lobby looks fabulous after the makeover.

Another major change was the old pub which was transformed into the Senso Lounge with a chillout vibe. Outside the lounge is a small corner which serves as a lobby lounge.

Hilton Kuching has several F&B outlets which are quite popular with Kuchingites - the Waterfront Cafe which serves daily buffets, Hilton Steak House and Toh Yuen Chinese Restaurant. While the Steak House has been surpassed by other establishments, Toh Yuen is still one of the best Chinese Restaurants in town.

If you are looking for top 5 star accommodation in Kuching, Hilton is probably still the best choice. The location is also great, right next to the Kuching Waterfront.


Oh I used to live opposite the Hilton lol. Happy Chinese New year to you too!
