We spent 5 nights in Kota Kinabalu in Horizon Hotel with my boyfriend and a friend couple. I have no complaints of the hotel. Staff was helpful and friendly and rooms where spacious and decorated tastefully. Only the breakfast didn't quite match my 5 star rating, so thats why I gave 4 out of 5. But the location of the...

Agreed with a previous reviewer that this is a 3.5-star hotel at best, at least based on the two satisfactory albeit unimpressive one-night stays we just had. First stay we had a nice room (1314) on the top floor (actually the 13th floor, but labelled as 'P' in the lifts), fairly roomy, views towards Gaya St. Second stay on level...

Horizon is a great hotel; clean, modern rooms with comfortable beds. Tastefully decorated. Really nice bathrooms. The breakfast buffet was fantastic and the staff attentive, filling coffee cups and clearing plates as needed. Security is good, you can only access your floor by swiping your room key in the elevator. My only issue was trying to find the light switches...

Overall it's a nice hotel in the centre, 5 minutes walking to numerous restaurant and bars. The room was spacious and clean. Cleaning team made an effort. The breakfast was good and they offered plenty of choices both European and Asian style. Wif worked amazingly well. On the improvement side, these are are small matters but together they can decide...

From te hotel its just a short walk to the seafood stalls at the sea selling inexpensive delicious fresh sea food. As always in Malaysia the downside is the breakfast as breakfast spells Bacon...

My girlfriend and I were upgraded to a deluxe suite on arrival without asking which was really great a view of the ocean. The buffet breakfast had everything could possibly want and the service from the staff was impeccable all the time. We rented a car through their affiliate and they were able to organise all of that for us...

Good little hotel with a great location. We booked a deluxe room which was good. Shower was a bit hard to negotiate, with its positioning meaning you'll get wet when turning it on. Issues with water temperature with it being hard to cool down once it gets going. Breakfast was satisfactory but not wonderful. Despite these small cons, most of...
