The room itself was average, it had a safety deposit box, air conditioning and was spacious enough for our requirements. It was clean and in a fairly good location. The breakfast was good and had a good selection and friendly staff. The staff on reception were not very welcoming and when we asked to extend our stay we were told... More

Top of my list why I enjoyed my stay here is the hotel's strategic location. It's right beside the waterfront, thus I enjoyed an early evening walk there, and it's right in the city's business district where you can find malls and restaurants. While their rooms are basic, it was comfortable, clean and cozy. Breakfast was good - had a... More

I was at this hotel for 3 nights it left me with a sour taste in the mouth. The rooms are old. I got a room in Level 9. Apparently, some floors in this hotel have newly renovated rooms and some are not. The carpets smelled wet. If you are to stay here, make sure you get a new room.

Location is excellent, if that's a priority for you then look no further. The reception area is very modern and quite striking, staff very helpful and friendly. The rooms, are very average. Indeed if you're in the bit of the hotel that's not been upgraded it feels like you've stepped back to the 80s! My room was very clean, but... More

Had a wonderful stay. Breakfast is very extensive. Concierge is very helpful. Had our luggage in safekeeping while on a field trip for 2 days at no surcharge. Nice beds en pillows. Had 2 rooms over 3 days and both very clean. There is some noise from the streets but this dissimates over the evening.

Overall the hotel is good, couldn't ask for more in Kuching. However the hotel card was denied for entry for a few times, almost everyday and I have to exchange it at the receptionist. The bell boy was wonderful, extremely helpful and friendly. Another thing is I don't understand why when I have an extension night, they asked me to... More

It's a cozy hotel, but the service is really slow. We asked for extra feather pillow and it never came by the end of the night. After we check the bed, we realize there's a period stain on the bedsheets and we assume it's from the previous customer. Nonetheless, it's a comfy simple hotel but it needs improvement in hygiene...

I chose to stay at grand margherita primarily because of it's superb location. It's along the river, with nice views. The iconic Kuching cat monument is just across the road. There are several atms/banks close by should you run short of cash. There are shopping complexes nextdoor if you run out of anything. Also, it's within walking distance to hawker... More

I would recommend this hotel for its great location and competitive pricing - especially for families with its larger bedding options. During the Malaysian school holidays, they have a promo price to include kids' breakfasts as well as free passes to the Sarawak Cultural Village. Easy walk to the shopping bazaar, Chinatown, tourism office and museums. Just ask for a... More

It should be noted that there are two wings in the hotel. The older wing and the newer wing. You would do well to make your reservations in the new wing as the old wing is I would say overdue for a makeover and renovation. We stayed altogether 3 nights in the hotel. Initially, we were assigned and stayed the... More
