We stayed at the Grand Margherita during our business trip. The rooms were large and clean though little dated. We have requested for non-smoking rooms, high floor and we're glad that the staff was pleased to attend our requests. The breakfast was not bad though the choices weren't that much, something could have been better. They also served the layered... More

Stayed at Grand Margherita for 3 nights with my friend. Very convenient for foods, shopping and others. Staff was friendly and helpful. You may request the room with a riverview. The scenery is awesome. Just a walking distance to the most popular seafood centre Top Spot. Banking area is just around the corner. You can walk along the waterfront and... More

I used to stay at this hotel twice a year, during Regatta and New Year. I have stayed in both the non-renovated and renovated room. I have no complains for its renovated room because everything is polished and new, the decoration style is modern and clean. As for the non-renovated room, one can easily tell that it needs major improvements... More

We found the Grand Margherita pretty charming, and a good value for the price. Their breakfast buffet was excellent with a nice mix of western and local foods to try. They have recently renovated rooms, and we got one with a king sized bed which was pretty nice. Our main complaint was the amount of street noise that came through... More

This hotel has seen better days. But it is still a classic 1970s style grand hotel. It has all those good amenities that go with SE Asian hotels of this vintage. The swimming pool is a ripper. It's perfect for relaxing and set right next to the Sarawak river. River-facing rooms also have great views of the river. This hotel... More

I informed the manager, but when I came back in the evening it was still in the room. Complained again and they upgraded me to a club rooms. The club rooms are... More

The appearance of the building may look deceivingly old but the interior is totally refurbished. The room is cozy, clean and spacious. One probably would not find a more centrally located hotel in Kuching. Walking distance to most landmarks. Be sure to dine at the famous seafood hawker center right opposite the hotel. Great overall ambiance and experience. Will definitely... More

The staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast divine and the location just lovely. We loved the pool and went on a couple of tours organised by the hotel. Highly recommend this place for families as... More
