Great ambience, excellent food, courteous staff”

great location close to cbd yet not too close.

we had known merdeka palace as a conference venue during our stay in kuching (2 years, from 2000 to 2002). we were impressed then, and are happy to have chosen it for this holiday. 1. the location is great - it is just a little away from the "city centre", yet close to enough to walk down to most shopping in the city centre. the riverfront is just 5 minutes, and the other end of the riverfront with the malls is just another 5 to 8 minutes. moreover, walking along the riverfront is addicting, best enjoyed. 2. the ambience is great. spacious reception area tastefully decorated and lit. 3. the restaurants are very good. aurora court is regular malaysian, and we were pleasantly surprised to visit the italian restaurant. 4. the staff, without exception, is very courteous and helpful, alert to the guest's needs and very prompt. 5. we were in an apartment with two bedrooms. the getup of the apartment could do with a little polish, but it was clean and well-maintained. the absence of cooking utensils in the kitchen was a bit of a surprise, but in malaysia, who wants to cook on a holiday? :-) to sum up, we would most certainly stay here again, and would recommend this hotel. i must add that booking through agoda gave us a great deal! my 5 points for "value for money" are based on this. also, my 5 points for location are based on our enjoying the nostalgic walk to the riverfront.

Good size rooms, helpful and attentive staff, good quality of food in restaurant

Merdeka Palace Hotel was very welcome after 5 days in the jungle. We paid a reasonable price for the rooms and stayed for 3 nights. There was convenient and secure parking for our hire car, our room was spacious and clean. The large reception area of the hotel is impressive and there is a choice of restaurants serving high quality malaysian and international food from there. Breakfast was included in our tarriff and was very good. It is a short walk to some cheaper restaurants in town if you wish. The air conditioning was good although maybe a touch too cool for people who have acclimatised! The hotel is in a good central location. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a pleasant few days in Kuching. We didn't try the swimming pool on our stay but it is there if you want it.

Comfort pillows, individual iron and iron board, spacious bathroom

Merdeka Palace Hotel offers great experience to me and my family. The kids happily spent their time in our 3D 2N stay there. Love the jacuzzi and swimming pool too. The room was small but comfortable and the best thing that the bathroom was conveniently spacious. The staffs were very friendly. The location was really convenient for walking or driving all around Kuching. But in January you have to bare the wet weather.

This is our first trip to Kuching and learned about this hotel from the reviews from Agoda Website. We picked this hotel over other chain hotel and didn't regret. We arrived late but our rooms were kept for us. Our rooms were facing the park in front of the hotel which gave us a nice view. The hotel doesn't locate in the business district but close enough for the riverwalk market. The only probem we have in kuching, not related to the hotel is the streets in Kuching are so confusing especially with all the roundabout they have which make it very difficult because if you pick the wrong exit that will take you out of the way.

Great Location with Great Rate”

Ideal Location

We stayed at the Merdeka Palace on most of our trips to Kuching. The apartments are the newer addition and is great as they are still new, the rate is good when booked through the internet like Agoda. When we don't come with our children we would stay in their hotel rooms, some are rather small and the bathrooms definitely need some work to upkeep. The main reason we always pick this hotel is for its location, within walking distance to the city centre for food as well as to the churches and club, also the best price as compared with other 4* hotels in town. The museum is only next door. The receptionists are helpful.

This hotel is full of charm - both the building and the people alike. The hotel is beautiful. Art nouveau at its very best. The location is perfect, easy transport links yards from the entrance. We loved the suites! Loved the decor. It’s spacious and very clean. Also Thankful for staff at Merdeka Palace for the top and excellent service they extended during our 2 night stay at this suites. I would definitely stay here once again next time.

Outstanding facilities”

The hotel is located in the middle of Kuching town and really close to shopping mall and the latest attraction (the new Hana Bridge). The room rate is really great as compared to the value that you will get. The room is quite spacious, really comfy bed and pillow really help me to have a good sleep at night after work. If I come to Kuching another time, this hotel would be my ultimate choice. Only few things that can be improved is the selection of breakfast buffet and the friendliness of the counter staff. Should be more welcoming. Apart from that, all is great!

Great place”

Nothing to complaint. The room is big. It was a 3 room apartment. Would be great if apartment come with washing machine and fridge. The location is great. Near a shopping mall called Merdeka Plaza, if i'm not mistaken. Just a 5-minutes walking distance. Walking to the Kuching waterfront also not a problem. Secured parking. Overall good place.

Business Trip mixed with pleasure”

Centrally located; nice decor and ambiance; good dining and drinking restaurants.

The hotel is centrally located in the city of Kuching with nice decor and ambiance, but the decoration is old and require refurbishment. The hotel is close to a new shopping complex called Merdeka Plaza, and it is just a walking distance to the hotel. At night, many people walk around on the field in front of the hotel to enjoy the view and for exercise.

Thank You Merdeka Palace Hotel team <3 ”

I stayed here over the weekend, 30th June 2017 till 2nd July 2017. I booked 3 rooms. TWO 2-bedroom apartments and 1 Deluxe King Room. What makes the experience valuable is that we stay because my brother got married on the 1st of July. We choose Merdeka Palace location wise, it was the nearest to our wedding reception hall. The placed us in the 19th floor apartments, which had a beautiful view of the Sarawak River, DUN and the old China Street. Their staff were so accommodating and friendly. From the moment I walked into the hotel's lobby, was greeted warmly by your bellboy staff, and was given such wonderful service by your receptionist (i didnt manage to get their names, im sorry) We asked for extra pillows, towels, plates and cuttleries and their housekeeping staff was quick to deliver. I am utterly grateful to your staff as it was a hectic weekend for us but you guys gave us the calmness to enjoy a relaxing stay with you despite the busy shcedule. Thank You Merdeka Palace Hotel team for making our weekend better when bits of pieces here and there was bitter. You guys made it sweet for me n my family. Indeed, a bittersweet memory for our family. Much love from my family, my brother's in-laws family <3

Comfortable, good central location”

good location, friendly staff, comfortable rooms

The hotel is located very near Jalan India, and the old Chinese area of Kuching, interesting areas to walk around. It is also very close to the museums, and opposite Merdeka Plaza, where the Malaysia day celebrations took place, celebrating Sarawak joining Malaysia 50 years ago.

Lovely hotel and service with a smile.”

This hotel location is very good. Staffs are friendly too.

Stayed for 3 days at this hotel. Room is clean & luxury. And it's walking distance to waterfront & the famous seafood place among the locals, the Top Spot. Nice seafood & reasonable price. It's also near to famous Kuching Kolo noodle, shop's name Sin Min Joo. But the queue is quite long every morning as it's well known to the locals. This hotel is the very first hotel in Kuching, get to know this when we chat with the locals. And the sarawak museum is just beside this hotel. Free admission too. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Nothing is bad about this hotel so you gotta experience it yourselves”

Upon arrival, we have been upgraded from deluxe room to 2 bedrooms suite and the unit is so spacious that makes you feel like you are in your own space. The location is superb, the staffs are friendly and breakfast is good too. We particularly love their nasi lemak and the mung bean cake that they serve on breakfast. Gym is spacious too. With the nice styling of the lobby, I think the main selling point of this hotel is definitely location and room rate. It is definitely worth the value you pay to explore Kuching in the most convenient way (at least for us 😉).
