If you are thinking of staying in Kuching then look no further than this lovely little boutique hotel. The staff were all so very helpful and friendly, and the rooms were just perfect. Of particular note are Raymond and Ann. Raymond was great at making suggestions for places to visit and organising taxis for us. Ann, part of the management...

For the price, it's difficult to fault The Ranee. Enjoying an excellent, central location right on the river front, the rooms - including the bathrooms - are large and clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and it's got some quirky designs features to add that touch of character. For a small hotel it packs a good punch with a bar,...

This was our second stay at the Ranee. We kick off all of our adventures near Kuching from here. We fly in from KL in the evening, get a good night sleep, and look forward to breakfast before we take off. Even the basic rooms are quite large and cozy. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. We...
