We are a matured, well travelled couple & we stayed in a double room for 6 nights (3 and 3 as we were back after 1 night in a Long House with Iban tribe) in March 2015 during our 1 month Asia trip. We've decided to choose Marco Polo based on the TA reviews and we were not disapointed...Sam and... More

I ended up staying in Kuching , Malaysian/ borneo for 8 days on a 3 month trip around Asia .. I have to say that this place was a true home away from home . The owners were super kind and down to earth . Every morning there was something different and delicious for breakfast which is always a good... More

Wow, from the moment you set foot in the place Sam and Jane make you feel like family. It may not look like much from the street but climb the stairs and the polished wooden floors, historical photos, facilities, hospitality and warmth of the staff will make you feel like you are coming home. We came back 3 times and... More

Stayed with Marco Polo mixed dorm for 4 nights and then returned for another night before I flew out from Kuching. Have to say it is one of the best value for money guesthouses I have ever stayed. Good location (10mins walk to waterfront/main bazaar/carpenter street, located near the main gate cat statue of Jalan Padungan, 5mins away from the... More

I've stayed at this guesthouse several times, and every time I do I have a great time. It is clean, the owners (Samuel and Georgette) are great and it is centrally located near the big cat statue and gate to Chinatown. It is within easy walking distance to the Kuching waterfront and right near many amazing restaurants. Every time I... More

Marco Polo's is one of those old-style, congenial guest houses that gets all the basics right. It is spacious, spotless, the mattresses are good, the bunk beds don’t wobble, there are plenty of bathrooms and a pleasant verandah in the back where much-better-than-you-could-hope-for breakfast is served. A kitchen too. It is located in a relaxed neighborhood on the edge of... More

The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Uncle there give us a lot of advices on where to eat and what to see. The room is cozy and tidy. Breakfast is included and very good. Tea is served all the day. This is a hostel makes Kuching more attractive.

What a wonderful place! We spent a week here while we were in Kuching, and the family was always helpful and full of great advice about places to see and cheap transport. The breakfast was always delicious and the guesthouse had a great, familial feel to it. One of our absolute favourites. As other reviewers have said, the only downside... More
