On April 30th, the Imperial Hotel Kuching offered a sneak preview of what their hotel was like on the inside. Stepping into the four-star business hotel lobby was like stepping into the 1960s or 1970s; besides being spacious, the interior décor has a touchy of retro elegance.
Nestled in the heart of Kuching just five minutes’ drive from the Kuching International Airport and 10 minutes to the city central business district (CBD), the Imperial Hotel is situated on top of the Boulevard Shopping Mall so guests may expect immediate access to facilities, amusement and entertainment.
Located at the lobby on the left side of the registration counter was one of my personal favourite spots, the Business Center where secretarial services and internet work stations are provided for guest use. Besides the free Wi-Fi provided, guests can also enjoy personal space for working or private meeting.
The four-star hotel features 325 well-appointed suites including two executive floors carefully designed to create comfort and practicality for guests. In addition, each room has complimentary in room Wi-Fi and wired Internet access points as well as individual controlled air conditioning.
