    Modern Hotel, Good Value”
    This a new hotel, nice property, but not a lot of character. The restaurant is very good with Western and Asian offerings. The staff is very helpful. It's located in the edge of Chinatown, easy walking distance to the beautiful river front walk. The walls are a bit thin - you do hear others in rooms nearby. Probably not the best choice for honeymooners.

    The hotel was really comfortable to stay in. Ac was working fine, hot water rainwater shower, pleasent staffs, allowed us to keep our freshwater prawns in their fridge..very accommodating. Enjoyed the bed a lot, they have really good pillows, room might be small for 4 people but it was really comfy. Hotel looks new, everything is well maintained. Would definitely stay here again if I'm back in Kuching.

    Great small boutique hotel ”
    This is a new boutique hotel and located in the heart of kuching. It is walking distance to the famous seafood restaurant Topspot. Room was very clean, modern deco and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with local Sarawak menu. Only setback is that they don’t provide designated parking spaces. You have to look for parking along the road.

    Near city centre but not walking distance”
    1. we arrived by morning flight. called in to request for early check in but was informed by a male staff that the hotel rooms were fully booked and could not accomodate our request and was told to check in at 2pm. so we hang around at a mall but when we went to the hotel at 4pm to check in, the room was not ready yet and was told to wait for 30 minutes. we were very tired and got upset. however, a female receptionist was kind enough to change us to another room which was ready after 5 minutes. 2. no light at the dressing table for make up. the pillows are too soft. however, the bed is comfortable. 3. near city but not walking distance to the waterfront and mall but easily get Grabcar. 4. the room.is clean and comfortable but lack of towel rack in the bathroom to hang the towels. BUT OVERALL WE HAD A GOOD STAY.

Please do not hesitate to contact our frontdesk staff should there be anything we can do to make your stay with us more comfortable. We love making our guests happy!

    Simply marvelous.”
    So this is a rather late review albeit a very lengthy one (to compensate for my procrastination). Value for money? Yes, as it was relatively cheaper compared to other hotels, and it was relatively newer as well (less than 5 years old if I'm not mistaken) so you can expect that the walls and paint are all still clean with zero to minimal chips and scrapes. It's located around central town so you're spoiled for choice for food. Also, if you walk down the street (same direction as traffic), you'll see a small Chinese shop that sells a lot of snacks such as bee pang, kueh ning gao (some flat moon-shaped bread with fillings inside) amidst a plethora of other foods. Cleanliness was second to none. Towels (3 each) and pillows smelled fresh. Shirlyn and Mr. Roger deserve recognition here. Facilities were impeccable. Toilet was large enough and shampoo/soaps were plentiful. Would write more but there's a limit.

    It is such a great hotel in Kuching, the management is well trained & professional. Where you have special requests such as changing room, they would follow up closely & get it done for you immediately. The hotel is cleaned & comfortable especially the “smile” from the hotel manager (lady) & the entire team, definitely worth for the money & I had a pleasant stayed. Good job & keep it up Meritin’s team. Thank you.

    Location is very convenient within walking distance in the city. Staff friendly. However, for those driving own vehicle will have difficulties finding a parking space (public lot) near hotel.

Parking space is available too behind the hotel or opposite the hotel, As for the breakfast menu, we will try to keep improving . I hope this will not differ you from staying with us.

    I booked a Familyroom which is 2 Queen Bed They call me around 2pm to inform the other room is ready, They give us 4 breakfast voucher ,but when we enter the room , there is only one queen bed in the room. I called front desk straight away and they come in to my room to inform me that they overlook on my booking, they should inform me early and they should check early also, They inform me that no room available so they had to put extra bed in my room but i refuse as no space for us to walk or put things, he then said or put only 1 then. Oh then 1 need to sleep on the floor ?? The price of a queen bed room is around 1 hundred plus, my family room is two hundred plus, I not agree with them to put only 2 extra bed in my room. But then he said , the price of the room plus 2 extra bed is more then my family room and they will not charge me for the extra. Oh I fainted , I not comfortable to sleep on the extra bed and I booked for a comfort queen bed not to stay in room with extra bed.

Cons: room size smaller than expected, don’t expect a room with a nice view as it is in the city, we got a polite reminder at 1130am that check out was at 12pm, it was a first time for me so I found it strange. Generally, we enjoyed our stay
