    May be a little hard to find but has gained popularity. My taxi driver from the airport knew how to get there, just mention Jalan Padungan. Food shops are plenty on the vicinity, and walking distance to the riverside. It is clean, and breakfasts are generous. Each guest gets his own key to the main entrance. It's the best value for your money.

    Right at the entrance of Chinatown (I think?) so it's easily recognisable. Lots of coffee shops around with cheap local food. Can't complain much about location! Staff are helpful too. Great place on a budget.

    Suitable for people who want to stay at Kuching for long term because they provide facilities for cooking and washing clothes. The staff was so helpful that he offered a slightly cheaper rate for airport transfer (due to the drop of oil price). The environment was quiet and calm.

    The owners, common areas and breakfast.
    I had a very pleasant stay. The owners are very friendly, active and attentive. The walls are covered with hard-to-find historical photos of Sarawak. The breakfast area is fresh and cheery, being open on one side to admit plenty of air and light. There's also a cozy sitting area at the end of the hall. The only improvement needed is brighter lighting in the otherwise pleasant bedroom. I have already returned for a second stay.

    Surprisingly clean
    We had a great time staying there. I have to stay the place is very clean. Except for there is some disturbance caused by the noise produced when people step on the wood floor. The guest house is situated quite far from the waterfront but not to worry there is public transport near by. They also provide motorcycle for rent. And we love the breakfast provided, they use high quality of bread.

    Friendly staff, simple lovely breakfast, cozy common area
    Clean and comfortable guesthouse. Owners and caretakers very friendly and attentive. Simple and lovely breakfast to jump-start the day. We chose the non-a/c mixed-dorm which can get stuffy in the afternoon, but owners provided enough fans to help it. Common area is cooler and very comfortable for reading/watching TV. The location is ok, along a local business street (non-shopping) which is busier on weekdays than weekends. Just a short drive away from waterfront. The city is quite laid-back and serve as launch pad to wonderful natural destinations further away (e.g. beaches, national parks). Public transport is not as good as other tourist cities. Owners were kind enough to hook us with a car/motorcycle rental contact. Very good value for the price.

    The amazing team that work there, room size and the breakfast
    We extended our stay as we loved this place so much! Marco Polo's is situated about a 10 minute walk away from the centre and it i a lovely walk down to the main river front. The team that run the place treat you like family and really do an amazing job in bonding all the people who stay there together. The rooms and big ans spacious and very clean. You are greeted each morning with a basic but substantial breakfast. They are more than happy to advise you and help you with onward travel and also the things to do in and around town. We cant that the hosts enough for making us feel so welcome and also looking after us!

    I really enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone who is staying in Kuching. The staff are helpful and ensure that you have a great stay. The breakfast is large and varied so you can start your morning off. There are nice common areas making it easy to meet other travellers. Overall I stayed here 6 nights and I have nothing to complain about. It is also in a convenient location. Highly recommend.

    Great location on the edge of old town, in the midst of eateries, cafes, laundry places. The owners could not have been more helpful or friendly. They embody the best of Sarawakian hospitality, will try to match you up with other guests doing the same activities, and always willing to share their personal experiences as Kuching-ites and Malaysians. I will happily go back to Marco Polo's on my next trip to Kuching.

    Amazing place to stay!!!”
    I cannot say how much we LOVED our stay here. For us it was definitely a perfect spot. The owners and staff are wonderful and nice. The place is clean, secure and well run. Breakfast is better than the average breakfast. The wifi was great! And they have two modems now so wifi will reach anywhere you are in guesthouse. Attention to detail like always making sure tp in bathrooms. Hot water. We work on our own projects a lot, so this was a great place to reprieve for a while and was the type of place I could have stayed at much longer. Also can store luggage if coming and going from Kuching. The location wasn't a bother to us, we didn't mind the short walk to get to the waterfront/downtown area. Overall, thank you Marco Polo's for all your hard work and the wonderful stay!!!

    My girlfriend and I spent a week in and out of Marco Polo's Guest House. The staff are friendly and the hosts have excellent English and are very informative. Hearing the history of Kuching really added to the trip. They have an excellent veranda style dining area where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast every morning. They also have a comfortable homely lounge area with comfy sofas, books and a television. The room was spotless, aircon was good and the wifi was fast. I enjoyed the location as there was a number of tasty dining spots and it was only a 15/20 min walk to the waterfront. Do yourself a favour and stay here.

    Very nice owner. I'm quite suprise they even prepare the information of place of interest with detail bus fare & schedule! Room is clean & sufficient of shared bathrooms with shower gel. Guesthouse equipped with 2 tiers security system & CCTVs at entrance. Strategic location where easily access for food, cafe, grocery & bar! I can have a nice sleep as the traffic in this area less busy for the whole day & night. Free wifi for guest, but signal a bit weak at dining area. I can have full bar of wifi inside my room with statisfy speed. Airport transfer with reasonable price.
