Kuching - Abell Hotel


Woohoo!! The short break that I’ve been waiting for ..... Off to “MEOW LAND” – KUCHING, SARAWAK !! Haven’t been to any part of Sarawak before, so I was really looking forward to it!

Long winding rivers greeted my first view of Kuching while I was still on board the plane.

My first impression of Kuching International Airport - SPACIOUS! A welcoming change from Penang International Airport which can be a bit claustrophobic..@_@

Even the waiting area /lobby is spacious

First agenda : Depart for Abell Hotel which was approximately 20-30 minutes drive away from the airport. Paid RM 26 for a ride on the cab to the hotel.

Abell Hotel's building (is just next to Tun Jugah building)

Abell Hotel Building.

I was told that it's a new hotel which started their operations about a couple of months back. Abell Hotel boasts on their fully non-smoking hotel environment. Happy Happy for those non-smokers! ^_^

Lobby area

The hotel's in house restaurant - Carvery Restaurant - previously relocated from their Pending outlet, serves Brazilian churrascaria buffet dining concept. Didn't get the chance to try it out though =p Was busy looking for local food around town ..hee hee hee..

The interior of Carvery Restaurant.

Walkway to the hotel rooms.

"A miniature garden" next to the room that has no city view.

Superior Queen Room @ RM 99 nett /night was offered by AirAsia Go website.
Normal rate: RM 148++.

Room has hair dryer..a relief for the ladies.. ;)

You may request for iron & ironing board from housekeeping too! Fast delivery!! I am a happy customer!

In-room safe and mini fridge (no mini bar items but am not complaining coz i buy my own snacks =p)

Complimentary Coffee, Tea and Mineral Water

The bathroom is just before the entrance/exit door (can be seen on the right side of the picture above)

Flat screen TV with selected ASTRO channels.

Shower area

This is the part which i find it quite a let down.
The space between the shower glass cubicle and the sink area is a bit too near to each other. I can't stand in front of the sink area and look at the mirror but i have to stand next to the sink area - a bit inconvenient as there's no mirror at the room area as well.

Otherwise, my stay at this hotel has been a pleasant one. I don't mind going back there again for future trips :)
