Overall it was okay. But the price is pricey compared to other 4 stars hotel. No greetings at the door, by the way. The room is quite small (Deluxe Twin Room) but stunning view. For breakfast, I expect they could have serve something more since the price for a night is RM400

Pleasant reception, fast check in and check out. Breakfast is not as good as before. The room is pretty dusty and outdated. We went out at 8am and came back at 1.30pm, the room is not cleaned :( even though we already put the tag and press the button). Pretty disappointed

Actually there is no typhoon in Malaysia including Sabah. Just that october is the starting of rainy season but the wind will not be too strong. Sabah is well known as Land Below The Wind as well. Welcome to Sabah.

Hi. Sarah. Horizon hotel is a very nice place to stay for it located at the centre of the city. You can take the connecting overhead bridge which connect the Central market and a shopping mall. Fyi. It would be fun if you can visit the wet market with friends and buy some fresh seafood and ask them to prepare it for you and serve it there. Whether safe or not, i would suggest that you got to do something about it:- 1. Don't go to a very shabby or back lane and where few going. 2. Don't overdress yourselves or preferably avoid "sexy" dress but just a decent dress can helps you goes with ease. 3. Take a local tour operated by a licensed tour agency. 4. Avoid wearing expensive items or jewelries for that will be very eye catchy. 5. Have no fear in Malaysia for there are many good samaritans around. Best regards.

Hi there, That shouldn't be a problem! Taxis or hotel shuttle can be arranged, with taxi being the cheaper option at roughly RM 30 per trip. The airport is only a 15-min. drive away from the Hotel. Taxis are available from the Hotel - just inform the Concierge you would like to get a cab early in the morning, and that can be arranged immediately. Hope that answers your question, and thanks for getting in touch with us! Cheers, Horizon Hotel Sabah

"Waterfront view is best but theres some obstruction of view from other buildings/ construction"
"Best View, Higher Floor, Central Location, Room Service, Free Wi-fi"
"half the rooms face the ocean, half inland - must ask for a view"
"Higher rooms have views of the sea or hills"
"Perhaps the rooms seaview rooms are better? I can't say."
$64 - $143 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
