“Good Location”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

This was a good,clean hotel with friendly helpful staff. WiFi only in lobby but its free! Breakfast is very good catering for all tastes. The rooms facing the oceans have good views but facing the city is not great. The rooms are a little old but really you don't notice it. We enjoyed the hospitality that the staff provided, definitely an easy palce if you just want to take a couple of days in KK.

Room Tip: Maybe pay that little bit extra for the seaview, it is worth it.

Stayed at Standard Room for one night, room with city view instead of seaview, clean and spacious enough for 2 persons, but room and bathroom are tired. Limited selection of TV channel, bad TV receiver, room in old design, no separate bathtub and shower, and finally no WIFI in room except lobby. Anyway, renovation and upgrading work are in progress.

The Pro points for hotel: big and comfortable king size bed, classy hotel lobby, convenient location, friendly and helpful staff, reasonable breakfast spread. Overall is a pleasant stay at Promenade Hotel.

Room Tip: Get a deluxe room if you like seaview

An excellent city hotel. Although the rooms were not big there was sufficient space for 2 people to move around. It was very clean and comfortable with plenty of storage. Breakfast was very good with ample of choice for both Eastern and Western visitors. Staff were very helpful and we stored our luggage there for two nights free of charge. It is well placed for restaurants both on the waterfront and in the street behind the hotel. Definitely a good 4 star establishment.

We spent the remaining days of our stay in KK at this hotel because of its location and view. You'll have a good scenery of the ocean just outside the hotel.That being said, that same view will no longer be available soon as construction of another building across the street is undergoing. The hotel is also close to everything being in the downtown area itself. Several malls surrounds the property, and lots of choices when you want something to eat. There are many restaurants and food choices to eat in KK that we opted not to eat at the hotel. Service was surprisingly good for this place. Front desk and all employees are always smiling and attentive to our needs. Rooms are clean, good comfortable king size bed, the room has a living room area so you can have guests come over. Towels and toiletries are replenished everyday upon request, and you can even bring towels outside the hotel if you want to go to the beach. The place has a standard size pool and kiddie pool which is a good substitute if you want to just swim under the sun without the hassle of travelling to the island beaches.

Room Tip: Our room had a view of the ocean.

Quick overnight stay. Late arrival at 11pm. Room is decent enough...comfortable bed and pillows. Had a great sleep. Breakfast spread was good but located too spread out all over the place.

NO wifi internet in the room except via cable (need to pay?) and TV channel selection is poor for hotel of the stature (No CNN ??).

The good thing is that it is centrally located and within walking distance to other the promenade's seafood restaurants, has a lounge with live music.

I have always stayed in Promenade when in business in KK. One had good scenery of the ocean once you stepped outside and good club. The hotel is being renovated and the club is gone and the scenery is no longer there being blocked by a new building. The quality of the room is still there and breakfast is good. i like it when they still retain puffing area outside. The registration has changed with a chair to sit on but i cannot see the person doing the registration and it is as if i was talking to a computer monitor. Internet in the room is free and fast but not wifi. Please change it to wifi.

Service pretty slow, rooms a bit old, breakfast spread reasonable but for the price I've paid, I think it should be better It seems the place is being utilized by a lot of Government linked Corporations for meetings, etc. They were renovating the upper floors but they started banging and drilling as early as 8.00 am - Most annoying. Won't return

Room Tip: Taxis are a rip off as they do not want to use meters - RM 15 for a journey less than 1 km so if you...
