I would definitely recommend Marco Polo. It is a nice house in a good location. Padungan Road has a number of restaurants etc, and is close to bus routes etc. Great hosts, very friendly and helpful. I have stayed in other places in Kuching and Marco Polo is the best I've come across, I'll be back!

This is a small but very nice guesthouse. The owner is very nice and helpful and he is ready to give visitors advice about the best places to visit/eat...

We stayed at Marco Polo Guesthouse for about 6 days. Arriving at night was not a problem as he waited for us after emailing. It is in walking distance of the city centre and it is possible to leave your bags here when going to one of the many National Parks. Would recommend this place!
