    Good location, nice and helpful Staff. A bit noisy”

    Only minus is that the room on the 1st floor facing the main street was a bit noisy because of the traffic. However after 10pm it was fairly quiet. Good but limited breakfast. Bed was really comfortable.

    Clean & comfortable room. Staff are friendly and helpfull. Classic interior design. Perfect location just infront of the kuching waterfront esplanade. Room 202: the room view facing the new DUN complex. Walking distance to Darul Hana Bridge. Enjoyed the Kuching waterfront's musical fountain as well. Room deposit RM300.

    Lovely Stay on the Riverfront”

    Was in Kuching for a short trip and after checking my options, decided I must give The Ranee a try. Chose a Standard Suite and was given 104, overlooking the main road. Check in was quick as I had booked using agoda and staff was always nice and smiling 😁Room was cool when I checked in; both ceiling fan and air cond was on, definitely good to cool down from the humid weather outside. Loved the overall decor and theme of the hotel, just be careful of the stones in the shower - very slippery. Breakfast was very good, loved the laksa Sarawak and the mee hoon cangkuk manis 👍🏻 Would definitely choose The Ranee again!

    Good location, super-friendly staff”

    Enjoyed my stay in the Elizabeth Suite on 3rd floor. Staff were very friendly and spoke good English. Travel desk booked 2 wildlife trips for me with CPH travel which were both great. One or two odd design choices in the room: a large outdoor terrace which can only be reached by ducking under a massive concrete beam (unless you're under 1.2m tall) — I bashed my head. Bathroom has toilet INSIDE a shower cubicle with a door, and shower unit OUTSIDE but not over the bath. Only 3 power sockets and hard to reach to charge devices. Downstairs the same 2 spotify playlists (morning/evening) in the restaurant started to get tortuous after a while. In the restaurant (MBistro) the local food was good, but the breakfast Western options weren't up to the same standard, and coffee was the usual bitter/stewed stuff. All in all I enjoyed the stay, but considering the potential it would be nicer with some improvements — at least get a coffee machine and train some baristas! :)

    Maybe it was timing. ”

    I was in the Emergency Room and they refused to give a refund, even though I provided an MC. The room has no view (literally NO window), there was a strange humming sound all night that drove me mad. There was a street food fair, so the road in front was crowded and dirty.

    I’ve been asking the staff to change the light bulb in the bathroom but for the 8 days of staying no one manage to do that despite my several reminders and even show one of the staff the actual bulb that need to be changed. Also asking for switch to turn on the night light next to the bathroom also can’t get the answer till I checked out.

    A very stylish and well designed boutique hotel”

    We were very impressed with the Ranee. The Executive Room were had was very spacious and well designed. The furnishings were a mix of modern and rustic but blended so well. It was very comfortable. The large windows overlook the Parliament building which is beautifully lit up at night. Even though it faces a front street, the windows are well soundproofed and we couldn’t hear the traffic. It’s well located right in front of the Waterfront and the bridge across the river. Chinatown and India Street are right around the corner. And there are great eateries all around.

    Very good”

    The Ranee hotel itself was lovely, our room was absolutely massive with a full sitting room and separate bedroom/bathroom. The room was clean, but the shampoo/conditioner/soap in the bathroom were almost empty and they did not refill. It is definitely one of the more expensive hotels in the city, but the size and quality of rooms proved their worth. There are not that many rooms, so it books up in advance, especially in peak season (July/August). The hotel was walk-able from many things in the riverfront area, from the Kuching museum to the Jubilee grounds (the Jubilee grounds were a bit of a further walk, about 30 minutes). There are tons of cute cafes/bistros nearby and plenty of souvenir shops. The hotel does not have a gym or a pool as it is boutique style, but the interior decorations are very well done. The hotel has a peaceful library on the 1st floor that was right by our room. I am rating the service at only 3 stars because the staff didn't go out of their way at all to help us. When we would enter or leave the hotel, the front desk staff would avoid eye contact and never once greeted us, even when we were checking in. They didn't offer to help us figure out what activities to do or to help us find restaurants in the area. They held our bags on the last day when our flight was in the evening. We left the Do Not Disturb button activated as we were only staying for 2 nights and had valuables laying around, but the cleaning staff ignored it and came in anyway. Overall, the service was pretty minimum but the rooms were nice.

    I have stayed in this hotel numerous times. However I have noticed the food standard has declined. I have raised it up to the management and I am hoping to see some improvement. Although breakfast is included with the room, the quality of the coffee and food needs to be improved. If I were to stay there next time, I will NOT be eating in house.

    Nothing much more to add just a few minor things could improve. A little more training for some staff and a better television package, I don't usually bother but I missed a big chunk of the Olympics and that got me to thinking that other users might want a better choice under normal circumstances.

    I have stayed in this hotel three times now and my stay has always been pleasant. Staff at reception is friendly. My feedback comments about the food menu re : banana fritters. You use to have the best in town in my opinion, since you changed the cook, the banana fritters with cheese is not tasty as he/she ( the cook) puts the kraft singles slice which taste like plastic, Previously the former cook use to grate cheese on the fried banana and drizzle with honey.

Bed is excellent. The staff was great, offered lots of suggestions, and is well-trained. The Ranee is a sophisticated boutique hotel and quiet. We would 100 percent stay here again.
