Stayed 5 nights at a family room for RWMF 2015. The room and bedding are clean. Towels are provided too. Though shared bathroom, there're adequate bathrooms for everyone and it's all very clean. Breakfast is provided. Owners are very nice and friendly people.

This place is definitely value for money. I took a family room and it was spacious and just nice for the three of us. The room was well kept and clean. Even the shared bathrooms were clean and that was very important for us. i would definitely recommend it to anyone who's looking for a comfortable place on a budget.

Marco Polo is a great budget option base for Kuching. The rooms are shared bathroom but are very clean. The owners are very friendly and the breakfast is a great starter for the day - especially the coffee.

They explained how to use public transit to all the places we went, recommended to eat at Topspot. Laundry on site. My kids enjoy the cat. The location... More

At the end of my trip through Borneo I stayed here for four days. The whole trip went so fast and it was beautiful, but my battery was low. This was the perfect place to relax, sleep and read a book or two! Nice, clean and comfortable! And finally a real breakfast! Eggs, fruit, muffins. Staff = gold! Highly recommended!

This guesthouse is a lovely place to stay, very comfortable, nicely decorated, wonderful staff with a delicious self service breakfast which changes every morning. Really good free wifi. Lockers in the rooms. Super super clean shared bathrooms. We came back again and again and I would really recommend it.
