              Centrally located, near city centre, excellent room condition

              It was centrally located and the staff are friendly; for a family of 3 children, the hotel is highly recommended. The cleanliness of room is very good and well maintained,except for little leak in the wash basin water pipe in toilet. Overall the internet speed was very good and the staff are friendly. The room is very spacious and clean. The maintenance staff deserve special praise for their service. I would highly recommend Hotel Tai Pan for family.

              Major attractions are within 30 minutes working distance, local restaurants are nearby, and comfortable room.

              It is not easy to find good budget hotel and value for your money for 1 family of 4 person. Tai Pan Hotel at Kuching is one of it. With number that we paid we was rewarded with huge room with comfortable bed & pillow, attached toilet and nice historic old shop houses view. Parking will be a problem at day time but night time plenty of car park will be available.

              Cost-effective Hotel in great location”

              Free internet, rooms are tidy, location convenient, seems to be plenty of carparks

              Tai Pan is a great cost-effective hotel to stay in Kuching if you are conscious about your budget. The location is great (in the centre of China-town) however be wary that it is not your 5-star hotel. In general it is tidy and clean, however again don't expect the standards of a 5-star. The hotel didn't come without caveats though, in the first 2 days the hotel (and the surrounding area) was left without power, so we had to sleep without air-conditioning and in the dark, humid weather. This wasn't really the hotel's fault, however was a pretty "interesting" experience. The hotel isn't the easiest to find, especially without power, but we managed!

              Good budget hotel”

              Good price, location, good internet

              Tai Pan is a good budget choice. Room is a bit old but it was clean. Very easy to walk to the city center from the hotel and there are several gawker style local restaurants just below the hotel, and a few other Chinese choices just a minute or two away. Also close is a shopping mall and fast food. Internet was good but I had the room right by the desk. I'd stay here again for the same price.

              I stayed at Tai Pan for 15 days, and had a good time. It was a little noisy at times, so if you're a light sleeper or have children stay away. My needs are modest and they are definitely fulfilled. The rooms were so clean and comfortable!

              affordable, value for money, town area

              Love this place. The hotel is situated in the city. Since it is in the city, it is not a problem to travel around for sight seeing. If you are not traveling with car, you can still have the option to walk around the city as there are quite a number of interesting and attraction sight to look about and visit. For instance you can go to the Chinese Museum, cross the river on a boat to buy their special 'Sarawak Cake Lapis' and many more! Should give a try!

              Staff, price, location

              Pros: - The staff was very helpful with every kind of needs. - Location: Close to the Waterfront, local restaurants, City Centre, Malls, Museums and everything - The rate was really low for the Standard of the Hotel. Great! Cons: - One small thing about the staff: I was kind of lost on the other side of the river and the Taxi Number they handed me was not working, so I phoned the Hotel in order to call me a taxi over there. They didn't understand me and hung up the phone... - Nothing more.

              Great 2 days stay with my family. The room is basic but big and clean. Had LCD TV in our room with a few ASTRO channels. Lucky our room was on the first floor as this hotel do not have lifts. Might be a problem for some to use the staircase. Very close to TOPSPOT seafood.

              Cheap, clean, strategic location

              I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in family room with my friends. When I booked this hotel, I didn't expect too much because of the price is extremely cheap. But turns out that my friends and I totally surprised when we got there. The room and the toilet are clean, TV (not so many channel but enough), the AC is freezing, the wifi works perfectly. This hotel has no special additional facility but we got all we need (a comfy room to sleep in ;D). The only thing we don't like was the pillow was hard. We once heard about bad things happened in this hotel, but nothing happened when we stayed there.

              Excellent value for money, good size room, free wifi

              The hotel is about a 15-20 minute walk from the bus station (where you will catch buses for day trips to orangutan park cat museum and other sights), so it's not the most conveniently located hotel. The food immediately around it is FANTASTIC!!! and worth staying for there alone. The rooms are spacious, clean and have free WIFI which works very well. Whilst there are hostels in the centre that may be cheaper than this, there won't be many/any hotels in the centre that have this one's comforts. If your budget is more important to you than your walking, this is the place to stay
