My only regret was not extending my stay. I had a great time there especially in "Summer" Room, met new friends and Sam, his wife and Drew were very warm and helpful. Free breakfast and you are welcome to cook too. I'd definitely return!

OK but too far from the city center”
This place was very quiet. Most of the time, there were only 4 people there. Two of them were a couple so there was no social atmosphere. But Sam and Jane took good care of everything and showed me where the buses leave, called an UBER car etc. Unfortunately, I didn't realise that the guesthouse is a 20 minute walk from the city center. Yes, it's not a very big city but once you go back to the guesthouse for a rest, you don't go back into town again for an evening stroll.

Great for independent travelers”
Great location on the edge of old town, in the midst of eateries, cafes, laundry places. The owners could not have been more helpful or friendly. They embody the best of Sarawakian hospitality, will try to match you up with other guests doing the same activities, and always willing to share their personal experiences as Kuching-ites and Malaysians. I will happily go back to Marco Polo's on my next trip to Kuching.

Amicable and informative owners.”
the only negative is the sound proof of the room, I acknowledged this from the previous guest who left comment, thus I am not complaining but just giving information to the guests who are going to book this lovely place. I stayed its Double Room, room was clean and tidy, nice bed, warm colour wall decoration.

Best value for money ”
May be a little hard to find but has gained popularity. My taxi driver from the airport knew how to get there, just mention Jalan Padungan. Food shops are plenty on the vicinity, and walking distance to the riverside. It is clean, and breakfasts are generous. Each guest gets his own key to the main entrance. It's the best value for your money.

Amazing place to stay!!!”
I cannot say how much we LOVED our stay here. For us it was definitely a perfect spot. The owners and staff are wonderful and nice. The place is clean, secure and well run. Breakfast is better than the average breakfast. The wifi was great! And they have two modems now so wifi will reach anywhere you are in guesthouse. Attention to detail like always making sure tp in bathrooms. Hot water. We work on our own projects a lot, so this was a great place to reprieve for a while and was the type of place I could have stayed at much longer. Also can store luggage if coming and going from Kuching. The location wasn't a bother to us, we didn't mind the short walk to get to the waterfront/downtown area. Overall, thank you Marco Polo's for all your hard work and the wonderful stay!!!

Air is really bad.”
Staff and location was nice, but air was REALLY bad. I couldn't bear, so I moved different dormitory. I just stayed there 1 hour only. But some people stayed there. I might be just sensitive or something. But such a experience is the first time, even though I payed RM30 per a day. RM30 is usual or a little bit expensive compared other dormitory in Malaysia.

Right at the entrance of Chinatown (I think?) so it's easily recognisable. Lots of coffee shops around with cheap local food. Can't complain much about location! Staff are helpful too. Great place on a budget.

Friendly Atmosphere, Comfortable and Clean Rooms”
My girlfriend and I spent a week in and out of Marco Polo's Guest House. The staff are friendly and the hosts have excellent English and are very informative. Hearing the history of Kuching really added to the trip. They have an excellent veranda style dining area where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast every morning. They also have a comfortable homely lounge area with comfy sofas, books and a television. The room was spotless, aircon was good and the wifi was fast. I enjoyed the location as there was a number of tasty dining spots and it was only a 15/20 min walk to the waterfront. Do yourself a favour and stay here.

Nice Guest House”
Very nice owner. I'm quite suprise they even prepare the information of place of interest with detail bus fare & schedule! Room is clean & sufficient of shared bathrooms with shower gel. Guesthouse equipped with 2 tiers security system & CCTVs at entrance. Strategic location where easily access for food, cafe, grocery & bar! I can have a nice sleep as the traffic in this area less busy for the whole day & night. Free wifi for guest, but signal a bit weak at dining area. I can have full bar of wifi inside my room with statisfy speed. Airport transfer with reasonable price.
