This hotel is very nice if you visit Kluang. Near to the town. The rooms are clean and functional with air con and TV. The staff are extremely friendly. Whilst I was there I went up the local mountain which is a great way to burn off all the good food from the night before. Take sturdy trainers or walking... More

Just like that name, the hotel has a nice old-school design in the lobby. With strong heritage, surprisingly the rooms design are quite modern and very spacious. Tried the WiFi speed, it is not very fast but at least functional.

I like the overall of Merdeka Hotel but it really still is a budget hotel which has so much potential for upgrade! Hotel staff definitely needs more training in customer service and knowledge. Room needs a little more furniture and needs a fridge. Wifi is bad, very unstable. I hope to see that the hotel is run better the next... More

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.

Everything about the hotel is very neat and has a colonial-feel. I personally like it but there are definitely rooms for improvements and more refurbishment works like fixing the water flowing from shower are to water pipe, better wifi, more furniture in the room, definitely need a small fridge, extend the breakfast list and improve the exterior of the hotel....

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
