I think i just need to repeat the words the other reviewers wrote. Its clean, airconditioned, the owners are very nice and are interested in what you are going to do or what you have done. After missing the bus (or shouod i say the bus didnt show up in the two hours i was waiting) they recommended a taxi... More

Marco Polo's excellent reviews are definitely well-deserved. Our room and the facilities were impeccably clean, and I think that there are more than enough toilets/shower stalls for the guests. We were free to use the kitchen, the fridge and the utensils as we please. Breakfast was self-serve (toast, jam, sweet breads, local fruits, hot beverage). You can purchase soft drinks... More

We chose this place based on the excellent reviews and were pleased it lived up to its reputation. It is located a 15 minute drive from the airport on a road with lots of cheap eateries. We ate at Top Spot one night which was en rote to the river. It is not far to the waterfront (10mins) and about... More

STAY HERE!!! Sam and Jen, the owners are lovely and always good conversation. We learnt many things about the city, the culture and cuisine from them! It's in a really good location, only 20 minutes walk to the centre and there's loads of cheap places to eat nearby. The breakfast is cooked up fresh daily! There's plenty of choice too;... More

I took an evening flight to Kuching and arrived past midnight. Someone was still able to assist with my late check-in and immediately showed me my bed. I spent three nights for the Rainforest World Music Festival and I've already expected that it'll be packed. The dorm room was pretty decent for it's price and I shared it with 7... More

We spent twice three nights at Marco Polo's Guest House and we loved it. Located 20 minutes by feet from downtown in a really nice neighborhood (new Chinatown), the guesthouse is really cute: a nice balcony (full of plants) with kitchen, one big common room, very clean (hot) showers and toilets, very quiet bedrooms with comfortable bed (dorm or private)....

Nice and clean. Prices were decent. Booked through Agoda.com. Sam, the owner, and his wife were very pleasant. A bit of a walk, I think, from all the main attraction in town, but take that as a good thing. You get to see and hang out with the locals. Lots of places for food around the area. Try the pork...

It's no wonder they are highly rated. The place is clean and well maintained, rooms are clean and beds are comfy. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. They also provide delicious free breakfast everyday, so it's well worth the money to stay here. I'll definitely come back whenever I'm in Kuching again, haven't seen everything it has to offer...

We stayed in a private double room ('Spring') just for one night as we were passing through Kuching. It was a very comfortable stay in a decent sized room. There were plenty of shared bathrooms, although fairly basic. The owners were helpful with orientating us in the city and giving us good recommends of where to eat (go to Top... More

Wow! What a place! Honestly one of the nicest guesthouses and some of the kindest owners I encountered in 3 years traveling Asia. Marco Polo's is a little haven in Kutching. Tucked behind a corner near the bus stop, the guesthouse is in a great location, immaculately clean, very inexpensive, there is there is a great atmosphere owing to the... More
