Merdeka Palace Hotel & Suites
Ranked #44 of 55 Hotels in Kuching
Reviewed 26 June 2014

This hotel is in the centre of town and has a swimming pool and a gym. Better still - it has large two bedroom apartments for families at a very reasonable price. The hallway is battered and stinks of cigarettes, but the apartment is clean and spacious, with a kitchen, dining table, sitting room, two large bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Room Tip: Our apartment is on the 14th floor.

Located in the middle of Kuching city of Sarawak, the location is excellent. Everything is within walking distance-a mall with Mcdonald and food court, the famous waterfront, Chinatown, the historical museums and mosque, the long streets of souvenir selling shops and India Street.We stayed at the two rooms family suite and it was convenient as there was a kitchenette and a comfy sitting room with two televisions. A good deal it seems

Stayed for one night during a biz trip. Rooms facing the road and open field is better and bigger. This hotel is 16 year already but rooms and overall state of building is still well maintained. Clean rooms with good wifi connection. Hotel bfast is normal but if you like to explore local sarawak food. The waterfront is just 10min walking distance. From the hotel lobby...turn right and walk straight along the road pass Parkson supermarket and u will see the old shoplots on the right side.

the decor and the state of the room is clearly out of date. the cleanliness also wasnt so satisfactory to me. i dine in their Italian restaurant the night i stayed. although the service was excellent, the food was terrible. the breakfast buffet is just okay. the location is ok, with plaza merdeka is within walking distant.

Hotel In the heart of City of Kuching and nice park and garden surround this hotel, though is an old hotel but pretty much gave me what i want. Walking distance to kuching waterfront which you can enjoy the panorama when the sun goes down. Alots of hawker surround and try the restaurant at kuching waterfront east to west menu with reasonable price. may stay on this hotel when come back to kuching

Room Tip: Get higher floor room for better view overlooking kuching river
