The Horizon is in a great location to everything in the small city area. We have walked everywhere around the area to dinner, the mall, and other parks and shopping areas. It is close to the docks where you can get a boat ride over to several different islands. The beds are very comfortable and the area is quiet at... More

This hotel is in a great location for exploring KK. Our room was quirky, with a japanese type bath behind the bed. Great view over the water and rooftops. The room was comfortable and no noise. Breakfast each day was fantastic, a huge range of western and asian food to choose from. The staff were really attentive the whole time,... More

We booked this hotel a few months in advance for a double room - however upon arrival we were told there were no double rooms available, unless we wanted to go on the smoking floor (as a non-smoker this was definitely not an option). We were given the option of changing to a double room the next morning but to... More

We stayed here after an awful experience with booking private accomodation. As we booked 2 rooms for over a week we were able to get a great discount off room rates with some free laundry and buffet breakfasts. The rooms were modern and very spacious and the balcony room we had was almost like having a 3rd room, the balcony... More

My boyfriend and I checked into Horizon Hotel on a Thursday night (almost 9pm) and we were informed that they have "run out of double bedrooms" and that we could switch the next morning. Troublesome yes, but we decided to do so anyway. So the next morning, I called reception regarding the switch and was told that there were no... More

The Horizon Hotel is in the middle of downtown Kota Kinabalu and well located to eat at local restaurants, and about a 10-15 min walk to the Jesselton Jetty for boats out to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, and about 5min walk to the Filipino and fish markets. It is very modern inside and the beds and pillows are soooo... More

We just spent 5 nights at this hotel which is right in the centre of KK, about a 20 min taxi ride (30 MYR) from the airport and perfect for access to shops and restaurants.
