While in Kapit, most of the hotels here are mainly located on the first floor of the shop houses. The hotel scenes here haven't change much since decades ago. There are not much to choose between them so I ended up with Star Hill Inn.
To reach the hotel lobby in most of the hotels here, one will have to walk up the stairs to the first floor.
Star Hill Inn lobby area is a bit well decorated compare to the others in their class. There is a water dispenser near the check in counter.
The room here is quite spacious but a bit run down. Most of the room rate at this town is at RM 100. Staying in any hotels in Kapit is like staying in a budget hotel.
There isn't much view from here and one is likely to see another person home who happen to stay above the shop house.
As the town is now accessible by road from Sibu, it is time to have a better quality hotel for incoming visitors.

Grand Margherita Hotel is one of my favourite hotel while staying in Kuching. I haven't stay in this hotel for many years now. It was also serve as one of the quarantine hotels for travellers coming to Sarawak during the pandemic.
Little has change to their superior king room. I checked in at 7pm and the towel was unavailable. This had been notified to me by the reception. However, the towels were delivered by housekeeping in less than 15 minutes.
The working chair also shows sign of wear and tear as it was sinking gradually when seated. The window here is still very much sound proof and I was not perturbed by the outside noise.
There is no more bottled water in the room. Instead guest can get filtered water from the water dispenser at the corridor.
The breakfast variety has been reduced compare to my last stay here many years ago. I should skip the breakfast option in my future stay here.
The hotel still offer a breathtaking view of city. This hotel also serves Sarawak Sling which I still haven't give it a try yet.
