Best value for money ”
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.

BACKPACKER'S HEAVEN”
Clean , Food & Staffs
Stayed here for 6D/5N. We totally love the guesthouse !! It was very well kept , maintained clean & nice ambiance. Room was spacious and comfortable. We had everything we need here. Located very close to waterfront & town center. Easily could walk to many places. Access to public transport is very near. There are many shops around to eat. They served breakfast like egg toast , breads, cupcakes, pancakes, eggs, sausages , bananas, pastries, drinks and more. Sam, Jane & Drub was extremely friendly & helpful. We felt very much like at home. Highly recommended for stay. Great value for money !!

Best bet for your home away from home in Kuching”
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.

Nice place to stay in kuching”
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!

Kind, attentive staff; easy access to nearby attractions; good amenities
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 for independent travelers”
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.

the only negative is the sound proof of the room, I acknowledged this from the previous guest who left comment, thus I am not complaining but just giving information to the guests who are going to book this lovely place. I stayed its Double Room, room was clean and tidy, nice bed, warm colour wall decoration.

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!!!
