        Housekeeping indicator was switched on at 10am but they could onlyfinish tiding at almost 6pm. Amenities topup become less and less daily. 2nd day no shavers & toothbrush, and 3rd day only soap and shampoo. Housekeeping services not consistent.

        Got sound from a pub at night. Hotel staffs were friendly and accommodating. 1st class service. But some parts of the hotel room needed repairs eg the toilet door. Overall it was still value for money. Close to the Sarawak Museum. It was opposite the Merdeka Plaza (shopping). But at night, it was not so convenient to look for foods. Walking distance to the Chinatown, Indian Street, Carpenter Street, Waterfront etc.

        We were given free upgrading room since I made last minute booking and the hotel system couldn't find ours. They offer 1 spacious apartment to replace my standard room booking. Strategic location to waterfront and got nearest mall there. U will not get starving at night. It's just the bedroom and other furniture i think already outdated such as the TV is like an ice box. King bed size was great but the mattress should be replace. MP need to compete with other brand new hotel though. For one night stay it should be ok.

        Its a hotel thats been in kuching for a while now. But then again, thats the reason its been there all this while. Great location, 5 mins walk to the merdeka plaza mall. Good entertainment in the building (Victoria Arms) which has a good live band. The room itself os spacious, although 1 thing i didnt like was there were no power sockets next to my bed. Which made it hard for me to charge my phone & be on it at the same time
