The hotel is well located. The staff is not always fluent in English but it is ok. The room is average. The lights control are weird and not always respond to what you ask. The Air conditioning could only send freezing air. It felt very humid also. I didn't try the TV. There is a small safe. There is wifi... More

We stayed here for two nights,actually it was a nice stay but the check in took time so long and we have to wait in lobby for about 30 minutes and we decided to have our dinner first. The staff promised to give us a connecting room and we have to wait because one room is not ready yet. After... More

As an overall view of our 3night stay, the service we got was majorly disappointing, the good was cold, and hotel needs major refurbishing. We were in club rooms, so make sure you do that option if you stay at the grand margarita

Stayed in this hotel for a conference at a nearby hotel. Was apprehensive after reading reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. Rooms are recently refurbished and very comfortable, well worth the money. The hotel might look dated from the outside, but don't be fooled. Great rooms

This is a great hotel in down town Kuching's waterfront area, with peaceful river view across to north shore. For the price it charges, it is also great value for money. The rooms are spacious, fixtures are old but in working order; aircon is powerful and will be nicer if it can be controlled. Best is still the water front... More

This hotel is highly recommended for location, value for money and good service. The hotel is by the river giving you a nice river view and it is very near to Top Spot Seafood Food Court.

The hotel is in a great spot, close to a number of food options and right on the river, which is great if you are located on the river side of the hotel as far as the view is concerned. We were in the recently renovated wing of the hotel and whilst it was comfortable enough, it was let down... More

A mix feeling when check in. Photos looks really nice but was given a shanty room with dirty carpet, smelly room and broken bathroom. Apparently they have 2 wings, Sadong Wing is the newly renovated building with sparkling rooms and Serapi Wing the shanty corner. Two very different conditions render this hotel with a 5 star rating at one end... More
