    Best place to stay in Kuching”
    I travel to Kuching one or twice a month, and have stayed over at several hotels, but when I discovered Meritin, I stopped looking elsewhere. I always take the Executive Suite, and the room is spacious and exudes such a relaxing atmosphere. And the food... wow... if you love steak or salmon like me, you MUST try their salmon... it's the best I've ever tasted, and I've travelled to Europe and eaten the best salmon there and in the best steak houses in KL even, but this one here at The Merchant @ The Meritin was a class above... don't take my word for it... You've gotta sink your teeth into their thick juicy salmon to find out...

    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.

    Pricing was affordable. Location was good right in town. Overall was good for the price we paid for. Bad side was, hard to look for car parking on day time, not convenient for those whose drive car. And as early 9am alarmed and can hear clearly housekeeping vacuum sounds and trolley strolls along the corridors. Stay at 5th floor.

    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.

    Amazing hotel”
    I love this hotel. Very clean, everything is new considering the hotel is new also. My room is Studio type, it is small but comfortable, it worth every penny. Love the rain shower.The location is strategic, close to few Chinese eateries, bar/bistro, laudry bar, mini supermarket. You can just walk to those places. The downside is the TV channels, lack of entertaining channel. Since I rarely stay in the room, I just consider it just a minor cons. If I decided to come to Kuching again, I would stay at this hotel again if the service is still great as the first time I stayed here.

    hotel is 2 yrs young but already is getting knocked around , foyer ceiling has major water damage (not a good look when entering a new hotel) WIFI is hit and miss , smart phone works better in foyer than in room ,computer picks up ok in room. On arrival we were asked to pay a difference in the rate due to tax increase was not happy (did not pay) when you book a hotel with tax's included in advance then that's the hotels problem if things change on the bright side short walk to lots of local food places and top spot seafood eatery, this hotel is in china town strip, street is not busy, there is really no view from room only moldy roof tops and dirty back lane but that's Kuching all over

    Hi Robert, Thank you for your constructive feedback on our hospitality, and our beautiful city. Situated in one of the most prominent landmark in Kuching, this street is rich in history dating back to as early as 1900s. You may've noticed the many archaic rows of shophouses, much of its structure is still preserved today. With major attractions and business centers within the vicinity, it is always bustling with activities. However, you may've missed that experience due to the recent Chinese New Year Festival as most businesses were closed for the celebration. It was an unfortunate incident that you weren't made clear of our tax system. SST was implemented in order to sustain our country's economy. Hotel don't benefit from this as collection is paid to Royal Malaysian Customs Department. Though booking was done prior to your arrival, however, Sale & Service is provided 'only' upon your check-in. Wishing you a wonderful new year ahead! Olivia Ting General Manager

    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.
