The lobby bar at the Grand Margherita Hotel has a very entertaining and extremely talented band (X3M) from the Philippines. They were so good that we went back three nights in a row and we stayed until closing time just to hear them play. Highly recommend this hotel bar in the evenings when they are playing, they take song requests...

First and foremost, the greetings and attentive of the front desk is just great as it make you felt just welcome into the Hotel. The scent and choice of flower used is just right. In terms of location the hotel is situated near the Riverside of the Kuching River. Thus, you will get to experience the city's hustle and bustle....

We stayed here when it was the Holiday Inn around eight years ago and as we liked the location we thought we would try it again. Check in was very fast and our bags were brought to our room very quickly. The room itself is an executive room on the first floor. Very spacious and nicely decorated. My only criticism...
