One of the worst room i ever stayed in a 4 star hotel. The hotel is old but the rooms r ancient.
The standard rooms r soooo terrible, it's worse than a 2 star hotel rooms. The bath rooms r better than the rooms itself.

Great Location but very dated room
This hotel has great location but its room currently stuck in the 90s. There is better hotel nearby with fresh and modern furniture.

A very comfy hotel
I love the hotel room so much. I feels like home during the one night stay in this hotel. The facilities of hotel rooms are all great except the toilet. Toilet light is too dark for cleansing and cant flush the toilet bowl. Breakfast buffet is worth for money. Walking distance to Plaza Merdeka, a great shopping mall equipped with varieties fashion store and dining places. I would definitely book here again for my next stay.

2 nights stay at Merdeka Palace Hotel & Suites
Staff at check-in counter were extremely friendly and helpful. The room I stayed is very clean and free from odour. Its location is also very strategic. Definitely will stay there again if I pass by Kuching.

Needs some updates
We only stayed for 1 night and took the 2 bedroom apartment. The deco was very old style and its been a really long time since I've seen a box tv. The room however was very spacious that it looked pretty empty. Mattress was lumpy. Breakfast spread was mediocre. Glad it was just a 1 night stay.
