There’s room for improvement, like the arrangement of furniture. There can be more furniture to maximise the utilisation of space. As it is, it’s comfortable and clean like a budget hotel. Aside from that, the design of the room is sleek and contemporary.

Merdeka Hotel is the better hotel in Kluang at the moment. I really like the look and feel of the hotel but I feel that the hotel can do so much more to improve. There's barely any service staff at the coffee house and I'm not sure if they serve anything aside for a very limited list of breakfast item... More

The outside isn’t very impressive, looked like any other old white building. The inside was a different story. Very old-school and vintage decor. The first elevator in Kluang is also here. It may be old, but it does its job. Room deco was minimalist but classy. Spacious but not fully utilised. No working table, fridge or safe. There is a... More

The 33-room Merdeka Hotel was built in 1965 in a neo-classical and art deco styles. The recently refurbished hotel faces the famous Gunung Lambak and Kluang Golf Country Club. Loved the exterior and interior of the building, the right combo of colonial and modern touch. Location: The hotel sits on a hilltop very near from town. Parking: There are open... More

We celebrated SESK (School) 1976 Reunion Get Together & Dinner in Merdeka Hotel. A newly renovated hotel and some how needs touch up on squeaking sounds from the doors. Had the executive room with the view of the majestic Gunung (Mt) Lambak. Received a good welcome at the reception and checking in/out was easy. Enjoyed the comfortable bed and need... More

The hotel was built in the 50s but was recently renovated and reopened only late last year. It is conveniently located about 2 km from the town centre and within walking distance from the Kluang country and golf club. The rooms are spacious by Kluang standards.We had stayed in other hotels in Kluang and most do not have a lounge... More

The hotel has been around for a while, but has been recently been refurbished, so things are still new. It's located on top of a hill not far from town. We got a family room, and it's a big spacious room with super comfortable beds (2 queens), and pillows, we have a really good rest in the night. What we... More

Very Comfortable & was a pleasant stay. Room comes with breakfast that was simple provided by them but was prepared from outside of the premises as the kitchen is not ready. Went over last month. I hope their restaurant is ready now as it was not when I was there. Otherwise you would need to drive out for food. Houskeeping... More

From outside it's just look like a newly renovated building. But once you step into the lobby you'll be amazed with the design. I feel like staying in a 4 1/2 star rated bedroom. Superb comfortable! Free wifi with strong signal, yahoo 😘 Very much worth check in here!
