My internet connection has gone a bit bonkers the past few weeks (I had limited internet connectivity but wasn't able to upload photos due to the line disconnecting every 10 minutes or so), so am only able to complete and upload this blog now that I've settled things with my internet provider. My humble apologies on the late posting of this blogpost.
Anyway, a few weeks ago we had the opportunity to tour around one of Kuching's boutique hotels, the Memoire Hornbill Hotel located at Jalan Keretapi (3rd Mile, next to McDonalds), and here's a photoblog of the visit:
Hotel lobby. We were warmly received by Mr Chanthy and Mr Rock.
Rattan swings and lounges at the lobby. Such a relaxing ambience. I could hang out here all day!
One of the bedroom suites at the hotel. Each room depicts the warm Cambodian hospitality, with earth and natural hues decorating its interior.
Facilities and basic amenities available in the bedroom.
Twin-sharing room. Plush comfortable pillows and snuggly blankets, what more could a traveler ask for?
Another bedroom suite, this time decorated in blue and yellow. I am sure kids (and adults too) would love the rattan swing =).
They have two bedrooms which can accommodate those with special needs. The room and bathroom is comfortable enough to fit a wheelchair.
Food stalls in front of the hotel.
Various choices await (they even have ice-cream!).
Big screen, perfect for football matches and other sporting events.
So what do I think about Memoire Hornbill Hotel?
For one thing, I love the fact that it's so convenient to get food. The availability of various food stalls within a few steps of the front door of the hotel. There's also a large screen tv within the compound which is perfect for football matches, the world cup or even the Olympic games. If you came to Kuching in a car, or if you have a rented car with you, there's plenty of parking spaces within the hotel's vicinity. What I found to be impressive about the hotel is the availability of rooms for those with special needs. There are not many hotels who are able to cater to their needs and provide specially designed bathrooms so that a wheelchair can comfortably navigate in and out of the bathroom. This makes it very, very convenient for those with special needs to attend to their needs. Other than the lobby, there's also waiting areas on different floors complete with rattan chairs for guests to hang out and chill.
Alexa trying out the swing. Don't worry dear, I don't think you're that heavy =P.
The hotel has other facilities such as a function room which is perfect for small and intimate functions, weddings and gatherings so do give them a call at 082-413551 if you want to check their other facilities.
One for the photo album! Thank you Tressa for inviting me, I absolutely loved the hotel and how it caters not only for the usual travellers, but also to those with special needs as well.
Would I recommend the hotel? Obviously! A comfortable boutique hotel, with a huge selection of food (and McDonalds if you love the fast-food chain), charming and attentive staff and a very economical price, you can be sure that you're trip to Kuching will be a great one. Do check out the hotel's website [here] and Facebook page [here] for more info.
