Lovely hotel with great river view

Gret river view from big room
It has been my third times staying at this hotel. Me and my family love the river view from our room windows, where we can spent times hours to watch what happens along the river. It located right at the center of the city, Cats statues. Good and friendly service from receptionist to cleaning service staffs. Big room and comfort bed.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Just go down to the back of the hotel and spent nice evening, drinking Tea Tarikh or Coffee Tarikh while watching for the boats come and go at the riverside.

Great Location and Friendly Service

Clean Room, friendly staff
Spent 2 nights in Grand Margherita, the room is large enough for two people. The room was clean and offered almost everything you need in travel. Wifi can be used directly from the room though the connection speed is under average, even slower than my cell phone (Digi). The staff of the hotel were nice and friendly, I asked so many questions during the time, yet they answered questions with their smiles. The location is perfectly in the downtown, but noise in the night can be disturbed,especially the rooms face toward the road. The biggest problem of the room is mosquitoes, I was bitten badly during the first night, so beware of them
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: here's few tips for you 1. there is a bus stop right next to the hotel, you can easily get the rapid No.1 bus to bako from there, the first bus in the morning stops at the bus stop around 7:10 am and will arrive hourly. (warning: the bus timetable is highly unreliable, so plan your journey with enough time) 2. money exchange (actually it is a bookstore)can be found at the underground floor of Plaza Sarawah, right next to the hotel. 3.Looking for delicious foods? Walk to the opposite direction of the hotel for 5 minutes, you will find a small road full of restaurants 4. tourists information centre can be found about 15 minutes walk from the hotel along the waterfront, when you see the old council, that's it

Great hotel locations

Friendly hotel staff
Hotel considered best location. However sad to say, there is not much night market or late night supper spot even being great location like next to Sarawak river. Since hotel is by the river, they should consider small eating outlet instead of relying on the bar cause some family may find in inconvenient to hang around at night with children tagged along. Overall had a pleasant stay there.
Nightlife Tip: Do not expect much nightlife there. There may be a bar at the hotel but not much customers. Suggest hotel arrange night eating supper place on weekend for a more lively area.

Great location for a great hotel.

Big clean rooms, great staff, fantastic breakfast and great location.
The location of the hotel is probably the best in Kuching, the famous Kuching Statue is just in front of the hotel and shopping plazas and centres, food courts and restaurants, cinemas are less than a five-minute walk. The esplanade and tambangs (small boats that take passengers across the river) are a stone's throw away and will give you access to the Orchid Gradens, Fort Margherita, and shops selling the famous Sarawak Kueh Lapis. The rooms in the hotel are very spacious and clean and the staff are very efficient and polite. Breakfast was spoilt for choice,there's vegetarian, Sarawak cuisine, western, Chinese, Indian, Malay and so much more. The hotel even make arrangements to other tourist attractions such as the Sarawak Cultural Village, Bako National Park and many more and the prices are very reasonable as compared to those found online or from the local tourist agencies. Checking in and out was a breeze. Our request for the rooms of our choice was promptly granted. I really couldn't not be any happier and satisfied by the the hotel and staff and will definitely stay there again if I'm ever in Kuching again. Thanks Grand Margherita Hotel.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Always ask for the fare when crossing the river using the tambangs. If you are crossing just across the river, the fare should be Rm 0.50, but if you are acrossing the river from one end of the river to the other end, they will chrage you about Rm 2.00.

Good but quite old hotel

Good river view
The room is facing the river with good view. The hotel staff are quite nice in servicing customer. However, the hotel is rather old. The swimming pool is small and is too 'public' in terms of location.

Nice clean Hotel

Overall the stay was ok, but i was waken by the staff outside with walkie talkie which means the sound insulation is not so well controlled.
