The Ranee Boutique Suites

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 July 2013

The place is well thought out design wise. Big rooms, spacious ground floor with wood theme decor. Comfortable lounge on the first floor. Barthrooms a bit Zen and spacious. Location in the heart of the old Bazar area near shops and restaurants. Their breakfast lets them down though - menu a bit strange. Dont know why coz there is a nice coffee shop in the hotel.

Room Tip: Take a room off the street side coz its noisy on the front - unless you want the action.

Smack bang in the middle of the Main Bazaar, just round the corner from China town - a couple of blocks from the Indian quarter and right over the road from the river. Great to just walk down the stairs and its all there - the only small problem with that is there is a bit of road noise.

Spotless, modern, roomy with friendly and helpful staff.

Cafe as well as usual bar and restaurant attached.

Room Tip: I liked the room with a view but if you're a light sleeper you might want to opt for a room away...

The Ranee is first of all a visual delight with its well thought out designs in the main areas and in the unique individual suites. This is seen in the respectful, yet creative, use of simple objects reflective of the many cultures in Sarawak. Iban floor mats are used artfully on the ceiling in the dining room and as a wall hangings in open areas. Simple metal stacked lunch containers become a striking wall sculpture giving an relaxing atmosphere of space. We stayed two different times for a total of a week and experienced several rooms. The King beds were very comfortable with soft pillows and white crisp linens. The desk and tv area was smartly compact and yet allowed necessary room for our computer,papers and books. The free wifi helped us keep in touch with our family back home.
With all this can you believe the excellent people serving on the staff here are the jewels in its crown. Zanion who was at the front desk handled our reservation and room choices with great kindness and care. She was able to provide helpful and detailed information for everything from a nail salon to restaurants to museums and local markets. What a comfort to know who to ask when visiting in a new country. Jeremy was also very helpful in this way, and on top of that he served the bar in a professional and entertaining manner, as did Jamison and Morrison. Chef Sharon,and Sheila cooked really excellent and delicious meals. This gave us a chance to sample the wonderful local dishes. Server Georgina polite and attentive service was always so anticipated to begin our day. They made us want to stay for breakfast and often come back for the menu previewed for lunch or dinner at the Ranee. Lucia and Daisy kept our rooms so immaculate it was a pleasure to return to them after a long day touring. If we forgot anyone it is only because there were so many good people who made our stay memorable and fun. You left us "Gaga Ati" . I think that means with a happy heart!

Room Tip: Front rooms have the best views but have more street noise. Air conditioning is good and provides so...

We had a 3 days 2 nights stay at the Ranee Boutique.
The location of the hotel is very close to the waterfront. Also many things are in walking distance.
At first we had a room to facing the waterfront. As this is facing the street that passes by, I had a bad sleep because of the noise, but I may be a bit sensitive about noise at night.
We've asked the staff to get another room the next morning which was possible.
The rooms themselves were perfect. Spacious, clean and had beautiful bathrooms.
The breakfast at the hotel was good.
The staff gave us recommendations which jetty to use to pass the river and where to buy the best layer cake. They also helped us printing airline tickets. Overall a perfect service of the staff.
Together with the option to do late check at 4 pm, the Ranee Boutique is a really good place to stay in Kuching. I'd definitively recommend everyone this hotel!

Every time you step back into this little gem after checking out the many sights of Kuching and environs, you are welcomed like a long lost friend. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed, the location is unbeatable but it really is the staff that make the Ranee special. Zanion is a wealth of good advice and really puts the P into professionalism. Highly recommended...

What a charming little boutique hotel in a fantastic location if you like to be in the middle of it all. The hotel was designed with love you can feel it, and although I didn't stay there, I walked in and looked at some of the rooms and would stay there next time when I return to Kuching. There is a little cafe in the front that has International Gourmet drinks and snacks, it was nice to have a treat to cool down from the heat. If you like a warm and personal atmosphere with nice customer attention, this is your place to stay

The Ranee is really your home away from home in Kuching. Excellently located, very nicely furnished and beautiful, and with a very pleasant staff, it is our pleasure to recommend this hotel to anyone. We used this hotel during two stays, while making excursions in Sarawak and it was a pleasure to come back. Never a problem to call for delayed pick-ups, extended check-out, luggage storage. Zainon and Murphy in the reception quickly became friends, and we would definitely choose this hotel for a future stay in Kuching.
