I will definitely come back!!”

This is my second time choosing this hotel .. My first experience also superb .. this hotel management is the best .. my stay previously having problems with the toilet .. they had offered me with 2 bed suite .. which is very² comfortable .. And this time I feel so damn lucky again & again... Due to festive season I had late check in .. the reception said their room full n upgrade me to the VVIP suite that really really turn my holiday to the most valuable & wonderful holiday .. I would like to thanks the hotel & the management for their kindness.. I might be lucky but few friends also sharing the same experience .. I will not going anywhere anymore whenever I am in Kuching .. this merdeka palace hotel & suites will be my utmost choose.. Cons : maybe due to festive season, only 1 person in charge at the front desk .. then the process taking time .. The breakfast is too simple.. n front desk informed kids count from 6 & above . While the cafe charged for 5 years kids .. a bit confusing there .. Anyway I'm having great stay n definitely will come back again.. Thanks merdeka villa .. I'm loving it

Great Experience as I stayed here”

If you like a classic and old vibes of staying, Merdeka Palace is the choice. The room is clean, all the amenities are new everyday. What I like the most is the location. It's close to Plaza Merdeka, Museums, Waterfront, and so on. You just need take a walk to go there.

A nice affordable hotel”

MP Kuching is always be a weekend getaway choice for the affordable price. Can get 3 room apartment for only 200+. And it’s huge. May be can do lots of upgrade especially for the furniture, tv or mostly the interior deco. I mean I understand everyone has to get old but not the never-upgrade beds, curtains, carpets 🤪 It has been ages lol.
