Been there for my wedding on 5th Nov 2013 since we held our reception there. The suite was newly renovated and large enough for two families to have drinks together (Only for a short while though). The service was excellent as well as the food.

Thank god we only had to stay one night.. The apartment was so dirty. The front desk was very nice and there fore we got a chock when we walked up to our apartment. The elevator was dirty and the way past other apartments was a labyrinth of deep water pools. At every entrance there was a guard and it... More

I have stayed at this hotel which is located along the sea. This hotel is quite clean and we had good night stay. This hotel is near to main eateries in Kota Kinabalu and very easy accessible to shopping areas. Filipono market is one of the tourist area to purchase more traditional goods and pearls. The nightlife is welcoming at... More

The distance of the hotel is not exactly near to the KK waterfront but its not that far...perhaps about 10 mins walk. The room is quite old...with old furnitures and old floors. Service is very good....my favorites is their breakfast selections. Hotel is located about 15 mins drive from the airport (if there's no traffic jam). Hope they can refurbished... More

Waiter service of coffee was a bit slow. I used the gym a few times which consisted of a good selection of free weights, machines,... More

We were very impressive with the hotel cleanliness! Lobby area, the elevators and our room (406) was amazingly clean. This is a very important for us. Basic toiletries and coffee & tea was included in our room, each day the housekeeping will bring us 2 fresh towels and they were very fast to offer help like the other day the... More

Despite some stiff competition from newer hotels, we took the risk recently to do a nostalgic stay at The Promenade. It paid off. Downstairs, a huge canopy and mezzazine has been added, and the foyer revamped. We took an sea-view executive suite on the tenth floor with access to the Club lounges. As a severe critic of hotel spaces, I... More

Once this place is finished I have no doubt it will be a great place to stay. As it was, the room we had (on one of the lower, not yet renovated floors) was pretty much a Western style hotel straight out of the 70s, however, it was comfortable enough for us for a 2 night stop over before heading...

Good location to stay with most place nearby with walking distance. Tourist attraction likes 'pasar Philippines', waterfront, Hard Rock Cafe boutique and other place especially F&B. Heard that for night entertainment got 'The Bed' club nearby. In house entertainment got three piece show for quick and convenience if too lazy to explore out. Only that currently a bit noise during... More

Very nice hotel after a long journey in the jungles of Borneo. Staff was pleasant and very helpful, but I'd skip the food at the hotel for many of the better places around the area. Only a twenty minute drive from the airport so very convenient.
