    Fantastic & Wonderful Stay”

    This trip to Kuching was my 1st after over 30 years. Yes, plenty has changed since then. I chose the right hotel in Meritin Hotel. Honestly I don't have anything to complain about at all. Everything from the front desk to the housekeeping staff & location were just perfect! Yes, I will definitely stay here again anytime I am back in Kuching. I wish to single out the housekeeping staff by the name of K or Kay. Frankly I really have no idea which specific department she belongs to but she was everywhere, assisting everyone there. Please keep up the good work, K or Kay. To the management of Meritin, well done for having such a kind, helpful & considerate staff!!!

    The room is clean and all the staff are very nice and helpful. I checked into a room which the window is broken and I can't close it. The staff come to fix it immediately. But, still can hear some wind sound as it is a high floor room and the window still can't close properly. Also, I can't find a parking when I arrive the hotel.

    The best part is Im happy when I saw they did their housekeeping, and took off their shoes n left it in front of the door. Im not sure isit housekeepers shoes or most probably guest wont keep it outside. I perform my prayer happily. They are so generous and ready a portion of shower n shampoo gel Even towel, toothbrush, haircap, which is more than enough for couple travellers! Hope they can maintain it till the end. Cleanliness is good. Even the curtain seems to be clean and everything allocated in order. I love this place. They also make a call for a check out reminder that I didnt experienced in other hotels yet. To have a stay in Meritin is like staying at your own home. Tq Meritin Kuching for the comforts and warm welcome.

    No regret on the choice made”

    I stayed in a twin room for a night and in a studio for 2 nights. It was a great and pleasurable experience in overall. Pros: 1. Fast check-in and check-out, the reception staff are friendly too. 2. Comfortable bed and pillows 3. Clean toilet (I'm very particular in this) 4. Convenient location, walking distance to Sarawak River 5. Most importantly, worth my money! Rooms for improvement : 1. Shower area is a bit dark, good if can a bulb on top. 2. Sound proof needs enhancement, coughing from neighbour / noise from the corridor can be heard quite clearly.

    Great hotel in downtown location with amazing staff”

    Recently stayed here for about two weeks to work on a manuscript. The room (707) was excellent, with a comfortable bed, a working table with adjustable office chair, which easily allowed me to work full days without distraction. The breakfast is somewhat limited in terms of choices, as is lunch. However there are many restaurant options at close walking distance, including Chinese (the place is located in Chinatown after all), Malay, Middle Eastern and Western. There's even a McDonalds about two blocks away. Nearby bars include Borneo Rednecks, which has live music. There's a supermarket/department store right across the road, and several convenience stores within one to two minutes walk. The waterfront is walking distance (10 minutes). Staff are lovely, they appear to enjoy their work and several of them greeted me by name every day. Once I heard some staff members singing together while working in a back room, which illustrated their happiness at work to me. Recommended!

    Me and my husband were there for my husband's business talk. We stayed there for 3 nights and it was excellent! The staffs were all very nice and they all provided very quick service. The wifi was incredibly fast and the bed was just nice! Although you need to walk a bit far to the riverside but it didn't bother us as we had the chance to explore more around the area. An add on information if you love ice cream, then do head over to the DP Gula Apong Ice Cream, located near the hotel.
