Horizon is a little more expensive than a lot of hotels in KK, but you get good value for your money. Rooms are big and well-appointed, the breakfast is great, free wifi throughout, nice pool and gym, as well as a good location. Service is very friendly but terribly slow. I stayed elsewhere in KK and felt it was well... More

Spent a total of 4 nights at the Horizon and cannot praise it highly enough. The staff were very friendly and helpful, location was excellent close to everything and room was spacious and classy. As mentioned previously the only downside was lack of seating at the pool (easily fixed by having bench and shade down the side of the hotel... More

Very well appointed rooms in this centrally located hotel. We booked through booking.com several weeks in advance and when we arrived we had been upgraded to a fabulous room with huge balcony looking out to sea with sun lounger and table & chairs. Staff friendly and breakfast excellent! The breakfast is the reason i have rated the hotel 4, and... More

We found the Horizon to be a very nice place to stay, well worth the price. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to check in early. The rooms are clean and well appointed - big TV on the wall, nice bathroom with large shower. Bed was a bit hard for our liking (and we usually prefer a firm... More

Good Things about this Hotel were as below; 1) Good Spa with reasonable prices, in the hotel building itself. 2) Sunday Market, which is best to shop for small small things, souvenirs, starts exactly opposite this hotel. None can be more convenoent. 3) Good, very differently designed rooms. Nice to see something different than the traditional layout. 4) Good Service.... More

Stayed here for just one night with my wife. We had spent the previous two nights on a resort and needed to be close to town so we could be picked up in the early morning for a grueling trek up Mount Kota Kinabalu. The hotel was right in the middle of all the shops and restaurants, so location and... More

When you see the Horizon Hotel from the street, it does not look very stylish and the location at a big street normally let's you assume the it is loud. But none of this holds true. The rooms are big, stylish and have a modern interior with wooden elements. The pool is big enough to refresh and swim a bit... More

Upon checking in, we were told our requested room was not available even though I called in two days ago before to confirm and they said its ready. So we had to stay for a night in a Deluxe Twin even though we booked for a Deluxe King. Fortunately, the room was ready for us the next day and it... More

Were here two weeks back. Excellent location. In hotel front, walk left for a couple of streets and you have a wide range of restaurants to choose from (Italian, Chinese, SE Asian, etc.). Around the Italia, "Sing Ji" Bak Ku Teh is famous. Around OCBC building, a corner "Fa Ji" Coffee Shop is well known for its pig trotters and... More
