Kuching service apartments make up a small percentage of Kuching hotels.
They are pricier than Kuching Homestays, but come with better facilities, location and amenities.
They are favored by families, large group of friends, or those seeking to stay for a long stay. When I go on a vacation, I also prefer service apartments as they provide ample room for my family, and ease of communicating the day-to-day plans.
Those coming to Kuching I believe, will also have the need for a service apartment, and hence why I’ve decided to come up with this list of service apartments in Kuching.
This list will be updated from time to time.

1M HOTELS KUCHING

3CITADINES UPLANDS, KUCHING
Citadines Uplands is hotel chain of the Accor group, and one can only expect the best when it comes to their service hotel. While Citadines is located a little far away from major tourist attractions available in the city center of Kuching, it does have an advantage when it comes to shopping as it is linked to one of Kuching’s best shopping malls, The Spring. Add that with Accor’s hospitality, and you have one of the most luxurious and comfortable Kuching Service Apartments being offered.
5ARIVA GATEWAY, KUCHING
One of the few service apartments in the city centre, Ariva Gateway is within a walking distance to many tourist spots in the city. The standard amenities apply, and they also provide babysitting/child services and round the clock front desk. To be honest, compared to Citidines and M Hotels, Ariva rooms seem rather ‘less’, but then again, they have the location.

Jinhold Service Apartment is another service apartments in Kuching. It is located within the Jalan Song area which houses numerous shoplots and non-halal food places. Except for these, and the ever popular Friendship Park which is a symbol of the Sarawak-China friendship, there’s little to see or do nearby.Getting around is best with public transport or ride sharing services.
9GW FURAMA APARTMENT
GW Furama provides pretty basic apartment living, but it is close to a lot of major attractions, since GW Furuma is nearby the city centre. Due to it’s good location, you get nightlife, street food as well as shopping destinations just at your doorstep. If you have a large family, but your budget is tight, you can consider this place since they are slightly cheaper.
