Review: Riverside Majestic Hotel Astana Wing | Where to Stay in Kuching, Sarawak

It has been a long time I did not staycation at my hometown. Last December 2021, I had the opportunity to stay for 3 nights at one of my wish list hotel in Kuching. It is Riverside Majestic Hotel Astana Wing. I had stayed and done my review on 2018 at the old wing called Puteri Wing of Riverside Majestic Hotel, you can read here Review: Riverside Majestic Hotel | Kuching, Sarawak

Riverside Majestic Hotel Astana Wing is located at the across the famous Kuching Waterfront. What I can say it, the location is excellent and strategic plus you will get the best view of Kuching. If you want to hang out at night, enjoying some food and coffee, you can just go to the kiosk cafe across the hotel at the Kuching Waterfront. Main Bazaar for the souvenir shopping just less than 200 m from the hotel.


Many carpark available with security plus ticket. The ticket need to validate before going out and it is free.

Check In/Lobby

When you entered from the main entrance, you need to go up using the escalator for the hotel lobby. Unfortunately, before the escalator, there will be a two steps stairs which you need to lift up a little bit of your luggage. 

The reception counter is normal look and nothing to talk about. What I need to highlight is the view from the lobby itself, surround with see-through glass, you can see Kuching Waterfront while you sitting at the chair of reception. Very excellent view. There is also a restaurant (breakfast you will be having here), where you can sit outdoor with the vibes of Kuching. 

There is a welcome drink served too.


My room is 1240 and I stayed at 12th floor (my room at the end). To go to the room, you need your card to scan at the elevator, so it is very secured and safe to stay in this hotel.


When I arrived in front of my room, I noticed my room been sealed which means it had been sanitized and ready for you. In case, you find your seal is broken, you can decline to enter your room. So, this part, I am very impressed with Riverside Majestic Hotel Astana Wing. This is my first time to encounter the door seal policy.


My room is Deluxe Room. It is very spacious room with a king bed. The interior is so simple and modern and very different from the Puteri Wing (the interior more wooden crafted with Sarawak motives). Also notice in here, they did not using carpet which is good.



There is a welcome note together with welcoming fruits-gift. Everything is complete in this room, including iron with iron board, hair-dryer, room slippers, security deposit box and bathrobe.

The first night, there is a problem with my AC. My room a little bit hot even the control showing 16degC and error. As that night, I went home for a while to take some clothes, I also brought together my portable camping fan. I did not inform the problem that night as it was really late. So I slept with the help of my portable camping fan. The next day, I informed to the in charge person, when I arrived my room later that day, the AC is fixed.


During my stays, I did not asked the housekeeping to clean my room. It is good they keep the note that I put "Do not Disturb so they can't clean my room". 

As my room located at the end, so my view of Kuching Waterfront is not really full view. I can't view the Darul Hana Bridge Properly. Just take note, to avoid the room number ending with ,38,39,40.


The first I noticed, here they did not have a bathtub. Simple and dull bathroom, Nothing to brag about. The bathroom tiles cleanliness they can improved as you can see between the tiles, there are many dark spots. 

I love their rain shower, very powerful pressure. I did not like the idea of giving 1 each of amenities. 1 shower gel, 1 hair shampoo and 1 hair conditioner. In my opinion, at least give 2 units of shower gel each room as normally I will take bath morning, evening and night. Yup, you can called to ask for more, but don't you think it will be wasting your time?




For 3 nights staying here, I only had a breakfast once and it is only a light breakfast. As I am not a morning person plus our program that day is full with eating itinerary. But what I can say, they served variety of food but not that extravaganza like 5-stars hotel I used to go. To be honest, their Sarawak Laksa is not that good, I observed most of the hotel in Sarawak, serving really un tasty Sarawak Laksa. All the guest will be given a pair of plastic gloves to take the food from the tray as a Covid19 precaution.


I had a good stay at Riverside Majestic Hotel Astana Wing even though there is here and there (very small matter) and they can improve next time. Comfortable room at the excellent location and the view also amazing. Plus, the price is affordable and the hotel actually is newest hotel among the hotel along the Kuching Waterfront. Recommended!
