Promenade Hotel
Ranked #17 of 92 Hotels in Kota Kinabalu
Reviewed 1 October 2017

The place is very busy and early check in is not recommend.

First room we got was made up from last guest ...
Second room smelled of damp.
Third room was fine and we were tired after our tour of the hotel.

The pool is small and near the road but is ok and pools are rare in downtown KK
Room was ok, but carpet was grubby.

Breakfast was basic.

Looks ok from outside. The smell in the lobby made me nauseous. The rooms were filthy. Amenities were all there but poor maintenance. Staffs pretty competent but not that friendly,...so business like. The breakfast is ok. The upside to this hotel is it's near the restaurants, markets, shopping, waterfront and only a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport.

This is a busy hotel........felt like central station when you arrive and same again at breakfast. People in the reception area opening suitcases and scattering things around. The hotel caters for the Chinese market and this is evident at breakfast! At checkin we were sent upstairs and only to be told that we should not have been and then asked to wait whilst our room was being inspected..... dont mind but it was nearly 9pm! Food at bar was good but live music loud and awful. The worst was that hot water did not work at night and not again in the morning, complaining did not work. Location was the only good thing. In centre of town. Pool area is awful. Junior suite a bit small for a suite!

Our first stop off in borneo. Great location. Friendly helpful staff and amazing breakfast choice. We stayed in a junior suite which was excellent very clean and well appointed. There is a balcony on the 11th floor which gives a great view of the bay and sunset. Good location about 5 minutes walk into the city centre and all markets. Good local street food stalls are just across the road from the hotel.
