Marina Court Resort Condominium
Marina Court Resort Condominium is adjacent to Promenade Hotel, a sister property. A resort living in the heart of the city. An ideal accommodation for large family & travel groups but easy on your budget.
Guests are allowed to use some of the facilities in the adjacent Promenade Hotel at no charge, such as gym, sauna, jacuzzi & swimming pool.
A good 4-star hotel in KK city. Warisan Square shopping mall, waterfront, Filipino Market, pubs, Ocean Seafood Village are all within walking distance.
Check-in service is a bit slow might be due to the large crowd during Easter Sunday. There's a tour desk to cater for your travel needs. You can arrange any day trip to Kinabalu Park, Poring Hotspring or White Water Rafting. The lobby lounge has a band to entertain guests every night with some evergreen favourites & piano tunes. Have your welcome drink and immerse & relax yourself in the soothing ambience.
The Cafe Promenade serves a good variety of buffet lunch or dinner. As it is attached with a swimming pool, you can have you meal by the poolside or organise BBQ party. However, the swimming pool lacks a bit of privacy as it is very close to the hotel's main road and it's only surrounded by some trees & shrubs.
My room is bit stuffy with lingering tobacco odour. The air-con is really strong enough to make you shiver at night. Be sure to pull up your blanket and get yourself warm. Do request for sea view or else your room is only seeing blocks of apartment or building structure.
Unique Quality: A 4 star international business class hotel nestled in the heart of Kota Kinabalu city. Just 10 minutes away from the International Airport, this 451 rooms / suites hotel, offers comfortable accommodation, friendly services and ample facilities to its guests.
F&B outlets are Cafe Promenade, Dynasty Restaurant, Le Rendezvous Wine, Cigar & Karaoke Bar, Lobby Lounge & Deli Corner.
The sister properties are Marina Court Resort Condominium, Promenade Hotel Apartment & Colonnade Condominium.
Directions: Opposite of Anjung Senja seafood stalls and in between Ocean Seafood Village & Marina Court Resort Condominium. Walking distance to Centre Point & Wawasan Plaza.
Great sized condominium for a family/group
Five of us stayed at centrally located Marina Resort Condominium in a 3 bedroom apartment / condo. It is under the management of Promenade Hotel Apartments. There was 1 large queen ensuite, 1 double bed, a twin bedroom and an extra bathroom. The website stipulates RM288 ++ per night per apartment (AUD$104). The " ++ " means add an extra 15%. We paid RM288 x 4 nights via credit card, but when we arrived at reception, we were charged an extra 15% which I think should have been added to the cost when we paid by credit card initially. A nice place to stay. Minimally equipped kitchen. Has a dining area and a comfortable living area with TV. Room service came late in the afternoon.
Unique Quality: Nice large pool. Close walking distance to Centrepoint shopping centre.
Directions: Along the waters edge
I definately WOULD NOT RECOMMEND staying at the PROMENADE HOTEL APARTMENTS (note: this is not the higher star and more expensive Promenade Hotel next door) at Api Api Centre in Kota Kinabalu. I was staying there last week, and guess what? Had some uninvited guests over.. RATS! Just look at the surrounding area, its filthy, and its rat haven. There were rats outside, and they came into my apartment. I stayed at block 1 (nearest to Centrepoint). This is definately a building maintenance problem.

Feels Like Home
I've been here 3 times and I do not see why I should stay elsewhere. This hotel is in the middle of the city centre, far from crowd but within walking distance to the filipino market and also Centre Point of KK. Ask for deluxe room facing the Ocean for such amazing sunset view...
The hotel staff is friendly and food is great here too.
Value for money & views
Promenade is a good cross between a good hotel and a budget hotel in terms of price. It offers you a good view of the sea if you get the right room and is located very close to Wawasan Plaza and Centre Point and the new Warisan Square shopping centres. Rooms are quite nice, and it's fairly new so it certainly won't be run down. Very near the new party area too, called Waterfront.
Unique Quality: Views, if you get the right room.
Directions: Next to Api-Api, Wawasan Plaza and Centre Point
Cheap studio ....
O...I would said this building outside it is ok but when u gonna go to the room u will finsir teh pathway it so horrible...that u will not thinking of staying there but actually inside is so nice..and clean...with hotwater, kitchen, AC room and a big space..that I was staying with 3 frens...for RM 80....
Lot of room
We had a lot of room to relax in the suite at the Promenade Hotel.
They also have apartments and condos next door to the hotel if you need even more room.
Unique Quality: There was a pool, gift shop, and restaurant. The hotel was in a great location for nearby restaurants and shopping malls.
Facing the sea
You will not be disappointed if you stay at the Promenade Hotel. Ask for one of their suites with a sea view. The price is very reasonable and they are very nice.
We had a sitting room with desk, fridge, and TV, bedroom with large bed and TV, dressing room with makeup mirror and double closets, huge bathroom with seperate shower and tub.
Unique Quality: The large windows in the sitting room and bedroom provided us with great views out over the China sea. The picture of the sunset was taken from our window.
Value-for-money hotel in the business district
Good, value for money hotel in the heart of Kota Kinabalu's business district. This hotel attracts local & regional tourists and business people as well. For longer stay, check-out the Promenade Apartments.
Room and bathroom was clean, tidy & comfortable, no complaints (see 2nd pic).
The lobby lounge has happy hours from 12 noon to 9pm and attracts a healthy crowd from 8pm onwards. Its live band (currently a Filipino group) plays every day except on Sundays and it is a nice place to unwind on the weekends, and do some people watching.
The Cafe Promenade, its 24-hour coffee house is popular with locals who are keen on its value-for-money buffet, for lunch and for dinner. The food at this coffee house was pretty good and the selection changes daily.
There is a fitness centre and a health centre, both of which I did not visit.
The pool is just next to the main street (!), but with the artfully & strategically located shrubs, you would be able to swim with some degree of privacy. However, those dining at the Coffee House may be able to get an eyeful of you! :-)
Unique Quality: If your room faces the sea and is high enough, you will have good views of the Sutera Harbour Resort and the South China Sea as well as the nearby Tunku Abdul Rahman Park & Islands. ( picture of the view I got is in 3rd pic)
Good location, at the centre of town, and is only a 10 mins taxi ride from the airport. Within walking distance to the KK Waterfront/Esplanade.
Malaysians, Singaporeans and Bruneians enjoy special rates. Price quoted below is the rate for local residents, and on a twin share basis.
Directions: Facing Kota Kinabalu's famous Waterfront/Esplanade.
