In Kuching, I stayed at Lima Tujoh. It is a perfect location on 57 Upper China Street, just off of the charming Carpenter Street. I stayed in Room 4, a compact, efficient double with en-suite toilet/and shower. It has wifi, TV with dvd and air-con. There is a popular cafe on the main level with good coffee. I booked through AirBnB and it was a steal at 58 rm per night.
A word about AirBnB, if you haven’t joined yet and have some travel coming up, just do it! I was skeptical about it at first but it has been a real game changer for me. It is great to be able to get good quality accommodation at a more affordable price (even in Europe) but for me the major bonus is that the hosts have a wealth of valuable local knowledge and are happy to share it with you. You generally won’t get that at most hotels or even guesthouses. If you sign up using my link and make a reservation, we both will get a substantial discount for one reservation. Happy travels!
